my heart

Mark 10:45– “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

I want to live out Jesus’ command to “Go and do likewise” with the education I have received, my responsibilities as a Christian and my God-given gifts everywhere I go.

💖 some of my beautiful friends from around the world. I’ve been to beautiful Guatemala to play with kids at Eagle’s Nest Orphanage – I miss laughing with dear Jose at my failed attempt at Spanish jokes and walking through the streets. I spent a month in Cambodia learning about God’s love for justice – I’ll never forget holding hands with a little Khmer girl in the red dress, whose face and name I wasn’t allowed to capture. Our church worked in fellowship with a church in Africa – I fell in love with the deaf community and joy in Ghana. Praying for an opportunity to go to India to work with women and see Vivianna’s legacy. Would love to finally meet Kebebush. Waiting for open doors to return back to these places who have stolen bits of my heart.

I am so blessed for your influence, prayers and support. Thank you for be willing to learn more about my heart.
