Global Team Iowa - Wildwood Hills

We are taking our whole family on a mission trip this summer with River Valley Church!

Yes, even our kids - Ruby (6), Tessa (5) and Calvin (3) are coming with us to serve at Wildwood Hills Ranch, a place dedicated to kids who need a family and the hope of Jesus. Our heart is for our kids to serve other kids and experience what it’s like to serve like Jesus. We’ll be serving the camp in any way they need!

Your investment will cover our travel expenses and a donation to the camp.

Here is an overview of Wildwood Hills Ranch:

Nearly 9,000 Iowa youth were abused last year. We may not know them personally, but they are very real, and they need our help. They didn’t choose to be born into a family where mom is so addicted she can’t wake up. Or where dad learned from his dad it’s okay to beat your kids. Or a family with no dad at all.

We invite you to put yourself in their shoes. Flee your home in the middle of the night for fear of violence. See life through the eyes of a toddler left home alone all day to fend for themselves. Wonder if you’ll ever feel loved, moving from one foster home to the next. Bathe yourself in hateful, demeaning words. These are our kids’ stories.

Our work isn’t done until all Midwestern children have the opportunity to grow into healthy adults—educated, free from poverty, safe from abuse and violence, and engaged as members of communities and nurturing families. Make a decision to help start the healing.
