THE STORY:

I'm called on a mission.
My heart is torn apart seeing people, just like us, starving for such a basic need: FOOD. It saddens me to see unloved children roaming the streets, abandoned by family, rummaging through garbage to stay alive one more day and to keep their siblings from meeting the fate of the other hungry souls literally starving to death around them. I am blessed, we are blessed. We don't worry if we'll eat today. But we are all the same; we need love, purpose, faith, and no one, NO ONE, should go hungry or unloved in this world.
I am on a mission. To be there and to love, feed, comfort any soul I can. I may not have much to give, but i'm willing to give all I have. I feel God is putting it on my heart to go and to love "the least of these" the best I can. And so i'm saying yes, I will, use me for your glory. But I will need Him to provide because one small (but big) thing stands in the way: money. I was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and I grew up seeing unimaginable poverty on every corner. The urge to do something about it is weighing heavily on my heart than ever, and so I must do something. If the funds come through, I will buy a round trip ticket to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and spend the summer there visiting the rural villages and feeding any hungry people I come upon. I will help at an orphanage, speak with members of the community about what they need the most, learn about the conditions for farming and raising livestock, and love and feed as many people as He puts in front of me. I am hoping this trip will give me a better idea of what I can do to help. If it is His will, I am hoping to start a business near the community most in need (farming, livestock, cooking myself) to feed the children and people around me. This may sound like a long shot, but I have faith that God will provide. He didn't ask us to care for the orphans and the poor, He commanded us. I'm just saying yes.
