I am excited to share that from January 11- July 12, 2021, I will be heading on a long-term mission trip. I will be teaming up with Heaven Sent Ministries to spend three months in Nairobi, Kenya and three months in Bethlehem, Israel. Heaven Sent Ministries is an organization with a heart for sharing the message of Jesus Christ and serving people.

Starvation is one of the biggest issues that effects the city of Nairobi and while there we will be providing food to those who are struggling. We will also be spending time in the local orphanages caring for the children, providing food and resources and most of all loving on those most precious to God. Additionally, we will be visiting the local prisons and ministering to the prisoners. Many times, prisoners are the ones most forgotten and pushed aside so I am especially excited to be involved in bringing hope to dark places.

While in Israel we will be sharing the love of Christ with the poor and marginalized of the Holy Land. We will also rebuild ruined houses, deliver aid, food, clothing, and Bibles. We will not only be walking where Jesus walked, but how Jesus walked.

As you can probably tell, it’s going to be a full 6 months of listening to, learning from and loving on the people we meet in both Kenya and Israel, and there is going to be a great opportunity for growth for all of us involved.

I would love it if you would pray for this mission trip experience. Pray for all of the missionaries stationed with Heaven Sent Ministries who will be there during those 6 months, that we would be open to learning from the community we are visiting and grow in unity as a group and in intimacy with Jesus. Pray for those who will be leading us. Pray also for the community members who we will meet, that we could love and honor them well and that their hearts would be open to receive our service and the love and beauty of Jesus and His plan and purpose for their lives. Finally, pray for me, that I would experience this time of service with a humble heart, that I would run with endurance and love well.

Also, I am still fundraising for this trip. Please consider supporting me financially. Any gift is greatly appreciated whether it be 100, 500 or even 1000 dollars.

The same love and light that drew me out of a life I was never meant to live and into true living, with Jesus as the cornerstone, is the same love and light He has called me and many others to share to all the corners of the earth. He has called me to be that light, that patience, kindness, love, and steadfast revelation of the heart of the Father. Even if you don't choose to give, just know that He is calling you too! You were made in the image of God, to be a refleciton of Heaven, just as Jesus walked, so shall we. Amen!

My hearts desire comes alive through the following scriptures:

“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’

Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these, you did it for me.’ (Matthew 25:34-40)

UPDATES

Living Bread, feeding the hungry and saving the unborn

Hello everyone! 

I am praying that this update reaches many hearts and stirs you all to give to the mission here in Kenya. This update will not be long but just a brief look at things to come.

We have been moving weekly to the slums to serve the kids who live in hunger there. If you see through my photos the slums are thousands of homes made from metal boards. These homes are smaller than a humble one bedroom apartment you would find in America and they house families from 4-9 people. The days that we visit may well be some of the heartiest meals that these kids get throughout the week. The cooking starts early and the meal is beans and rice. While the food finishes up we hold worship with the kids and share a bible story and teach them to pray for one another. We pray for healing, salvation and other needs that they might have. 

Soon the pastor of this ministry "Living Bread," Karen Dunham, will be here and we will once again be let into the prisons to share the gospel. Along with that we are going to be embarking on a new mission. We will be teaming up with the local police department to start rescuing women from the abortion clincs. 

Here in Kenya aboriton is illegal and many women are brought to these clinics by sex traffickers. There are also women who simply do not want their babies who end up in these street clinics.

Many of the women die on the table because the procedures are not done properly or in a steril environment. So as soon as Karen gets here at the end of the week we will begin working with the locals as well as the police to rescue these women, give them a place to stay to complete their pregnancies and help them in the adoption process once the babies are delivered. 

We are blessed to go out into the slums of Nairobi and have a part in saving not one life but two. My prayer is that you all will prayerfully consider giving to this mission as it cannot be completed without the help of volunteers like myself. Thank you and God bless. 

Update #1
January 19, 2021

It's January 19 and I have been in Nairobi, Kenya for four days. I am full of gratitude to be here and grateful that I get to serve the people here. Basically everyone speaks english which has made these last few days much easier.

Saturday we went to the slums and shared the Gospel with the people there, we sang worship with the children and were able to feed almost 75 kids. I am so grateful that english is a main language here and because of that I was able to have conversations with the kids and get to know them without a translator. The slums are basically hundreds of tin houses built through the hills of Nairobi. It is one of the poorer parts of the city. I am grateful that we are able to go there and love on the people. I would say love on those less fortunate than us but for some reason it doesn't feel right. Many of those children, even hungry, we full of joy and brought smiles to all our faces and the parents were very open and friendly, caring. They have heard the Truth of the Gospel, and it shows.

Today we were able to bring food to a local orphanage and share the heart of the Father with them. They were very receptive to the truth of the Gospel that even if your earthly parents have failed or have been taken "too soon" we are no longer orphaned children but children of the most high, a perfect Father.

I pray that you consider giving to this mission as I still have quite a way to go to continue affording my stay here in Africa. Thank you and God bless
