About my Fundraiser
I am thrilled to share with you that I have the amazing opportunity of traveling back to the Dominican Republic this coming summer of 2019. I will be traveling to Ketty's Orphanage with Vision Trust International for a mission trip/volunteer opportunity as I did last summer. The pictures on this page are from my trip last summer. Over 20,000 children die every day due to a lack of basic resources and God has put this specific opportunity on my heart to engage with these orphans and love them in a way that they may have never been shown before. God states, "defend the weak and the orphans; uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed" Psalm 82:3. I will be serving alongside the local Dominican Christian leaders and a small group of college girls. While on this mission, we will be engaging and supporting some of the millions of orphaned and impoverished children through ministry, play, love, discipleship, and the sharing of our testimonies, all geared to the ages and hearts of the girls at Ketty's House. I am excited to speak into these children reminding them they are beloved children of God and to see the girl I began sponsoring after last summer again. I'll be gone June 1st- June 8th 2019 and would love to answer any questions or talk about my upcoming trip. I appreciate support through both prayers and/or finanical aid and thank you so much in advance.
