Mission Trip to Kenya

Hi Friends and Family,

This year God has placed it on my heart to donate my birthday and my time helping others. All too often we (myself included) complain about what we don\'t have instead of rejoicing in the abundance that God has already provided.  I am thankful for all that God has provided and would like the opportunity to share my time and talents with those less fortunate. 

On May 1, 2012-May 14, 2012, I hope to travel to Nakuru, Kenya to work at MIA orphanage. The cost of this trip will be $2500.  I\'ve done the calculations and if 125 of my closest friends, family, associates, or complete strangers would simply donate $20 I will reach my goal in no time.  This site has an option that allows you to donate anonymously but please don\'t be anonymous because I would like to personally thank everyone who donates. 

If you cannot help financially, please keep me in your prayers and feel free to share this site with others.
