EVENT DATE Jun 22, 2016
Two years ago I was given the opportunity to participate in a HealthQuest mission trip in an effort to aide the people of Peru. It was only through the generosity of many coworkers, friends and family that this happened.From then, I was immediately hooked and started looking for my next volunteer project- and I have found it! I have been offered an amazing opportunity with Go Near Ministry. Go Near Ministry's vision is to see communities transformed by mobilizing people and resources to empower orphans, widows, prisoners, and the poor in Kenya. In Kenya, women's abandonment, discrimination and abuse is rampant. As a result, women are trapped indefinitely in extreme poverty; left without skills to provide for themselves or their families. With Go Near Ministry, I will be aiding in providing vocational training to empower women and change their destiny! In Kenya, countless children live on the streets without any hope of escaping a future of poverty. With this mission, I will help care for children rescued from abuse, abandonment, and living on the streets. I will go near to be a part of helping these children have hope for a better future! Additionally, we will visit prisons in Kenya to offer encouragement, hope and resources. I will Go Near to distribute Bibles, supplies and clothing while sharing the messages of the Gospel to prisoners. Go Near trips results in visible transformation, for both those serving and those being served. With Go Near I will help disciple and mentor the believers in Kenya. Go Near believes that salvation is the start of new life, and we seek to nurture and grow that new life so that new believers are not left alone without ways to grow and continue in their new faith. Please consider helping my participation in this mission. All monies raised here will go directly towards funding this mission including flight, lodging and meals.
