Over my life time I have been very blessed, and have had the opportunity to live, work, and travel around the world. During that time I have seen first hand the disparity in the lives of God’s people in every region of the world. Those experiences were impactful, and like many of us, I have donated to a number of local and global church sponsored missionaries and relief efforts, and over the last decade have supported our numerous church efforts here in our own community. Though those donations and actions have helped many individuals I am sure, I have felt a pull to join a mission trip for several years. I look forward to going back to serve and share God’s word with the truly needy people in Haiti with other members of our church family.
