AMOUNT RAISED OFFLINE: $560.00
In 2004, Alyssa went on her first trip to Mission Lazarus in Honduras. Needless to say, it was a life changing experience. Over the next three years, Alyssa went back as an intern and on another short-term trip. The people, places, food, and landscape of this country changed her life forever. Alyssa is who she is today - has a passion for her career, is more in love with God than ever, and has a desire to help others - because of this place.
We feel that this day is about more than us...it is about beginning a new life together that glorifies God. We would love if our wedding guests can be a part of something bigger than us and bigger than themselves. One of the reasons we love Mission Lazarus is because of it's focus on creating sustainable changes in communities ravaged by devastation and poverty. Instead of giving and leaving, the organization educates people and teaches them skills that will directly benefit their families and communities - medical training, agriculture, dairy farming, sewing, etc. By empowing the local communities, Mission Lazarus creates a light in a dark place and can change the economic state of each community through love.
Please consider donating to this cause that is close to our hearts instead of buying wedding gifts. Thanks! We can't wait to celebrate our day with all of you!
