About my Fundraiser
God has called me to help share His love & light to orphans in the Dominican Republic. My roomate and I will be going on the mission through Vision Trust June 2nd-9th this summer. I have been working to self fund the $2,000 cost of the trip, but your financial support would be greatly appreciated. If God has not placed giving on your heart, prayers for the trip would be a equal blessing :) for a little backround on the need....153 millions orphans. More slaves today than at the height of the African Slave trade. Over 20,000 children dying every single day from a lack of basic resources. This trip is your chance to engage some of these children face to face and learn about the best practices to help (and not hurt) the millions of suffering children around the world. We will come alongside some amazing local Dominican Repubilc leaders to help them in their ministries to the hurting children around them.  We will serve as a team by playing with, loving on and discipling children in the community who are orphaned and/or severely impoverished.  We'll share our lives and testimonies as we encourage them to trust and follow the Lord who loves them so dearly. This is an incredible opportunity to make a valuable, lasting impact in the lives of the children and youth in the Dominican Republic
