Africa Mission Trip

I have been given the opportunity to go to Nairobi, Kenya and Arusha, Tanzania. I will be visiting schools and teaching students how to play the ukulele. These students live in some of the poorest slums in the world. Learning the ukulele brings joy to their lives. My hope is to connect to the students through music and share the love of Jesus with them.  

This trip is very close to my heart because I grew up around these areas. I am also passionate about music and its ability to change lives. Each volunteer must raise their own funds for plane tickets and other expenses. All together the expenses are about $3,000. I need to raise $1,900 more to be able to go on this mission. If you would like to support me financially, I would be very grateful.
