I have always known that God loves me. I have been active in my church family all of my life. Certain times of my life I have felt God’s presence more than other like during my Walk to Emmaus and during my second baptism. I never had a life altering, mind blowing incident where God suddenly “appeared” and turned my life around but a recent family incident reminded me how much God loves me and how thankful that I am that he does. I want to join my church family members from Haven on this mission trip to tell others of the love of God that I know and feel. I am very blessed in this world and would like to give back in this way to share God’s love.
