In February 2017, I will be visiting Rwandan orphans with a group from Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Tustin, CA which has been supporting the ZOE ministry since 2014. ZOE (Zimbabwe Orphans Empowerment) is a three-year program, developed in Africa that empowers orphans and vulnerable children to overcome extreme poverty and become fully self-reliant. There are ZOE programs throughout the world. Please visit the web site: http://www.zoehelps.org.
We will be meeting a new group that Aldersgate has committed to support for another three-year duration. It is our intent to bring back and share the experience with you, with the hope that our participation will embody your compassion, and collectively have a positive change in the world.
Any contribution would be greatly appreciated and would go directly to covering the cost of passports, inoculations and travel fare. My goal is to raise $6,000 by January 15th. Any money received above this goal will be donated to Aldersgate UMC to help continued participation in this program. This trip means so much to me and I am grateful for your willingness to support me in this cause.
