Mission Trip

I have been super blessed with the amazing opportunity to help build a church and share my story with other Teen Challenges in Ecuador, South America. Not only did God open doors for me to get my passport due to my record, but is now making it possible for me to tell my testimony in places and ways I could have never imagined. At the age of 13 I began to act out because of failures in my life. My life began to spin out of control from poor decisions. After getting in trouble with the law at the age of 19, I was court issued to a faith based drug rehabilitation program called Dare Challenge/Teen Challenge. I failed to complete the program as I was not ready to surrender my life. This eventually led me to prison. After a year in prison, I was released and yet still found myself making decisions that were poor. After hitting rock bottom, I felt taking my own life was my only option. By God's grace and mercy, I could not even take my own life. While attempting to blow my brains out the gun jammed.  After not being successful in my attempt, I knew there had to be a change. From the seed that was planted at Dare Challenge from years back, I knew I had to go back because it was going to take more than just myself to bring me out of the hole I was in. After completion of the program, and over a year of serving Christ and the men in the program, I now have the opportunity to help build a church in another country.  Please be part of this journey by planting in this mission. I will be leaving for Ecuador on Aug. 5th and will need to raise $1500 in funds before that time. From savaged to saved! Glory!
