Rachel Wegman: Missionary to Tanzania

In 2012 at age 18, I had the incredible opportunity to accompany 15 members of my church to Tanzania, an African Nation on the southeast coast of the Continent of Africa. There, I met 62 chidren at the Shalom Orphanage in Karatu, Tanzania who changed the course of my life.

In June 2013, I was blessed to return to Shalom to be reunited with these wonderful children--all orphans-- who have seen and been through horrors most Americans can only imagine.

Now a college sophomore, I am trying to manage the expense of college and expense of a missionary calling that has even caused me to rethink my major in an effort to better serve those in need around our world.

Whatever you can donate, it is so very much appreciated! And may God Bless you in that giving, 10-fold!
