THE STORY:

I am Mady Hinson, currently an 18 year old freshman at Oklahoma Christian University with a double major in Psychology and Ministry, as well as a collegiate cheerleader. I am working on raising money for my fifth trip to Africa for mission work. In the past 4 years I have traveled to Africa working with E3 Partners, a nonprofit organization, to basically love on people and present the gospel, be through preaching, helping out or talking with locals. In the past four trips I have single handedly been a part of 55,621 conversions into christianity as well as 260 new churches planted throughout the southeastern part of Africa. My coming to the Lord was not necessarily an orthodox route. I had not grown up surrounded by a religion and quite honestly Christianity was not on my radar of interests. While my friends were Christians, I felt like this idea of an all loving and all knowing God didn't really seem relevant to me and didn't really “click” with me. Everyone around me seems to have this perfect life who followed the Lord so did that mean that I would have to completely change who I am in order for this God to love me? At age 14, a group of friends convinced me to go to a summer camp which unbeknownst to me was a Christian summer camp. It was there where the gospel had been truly broken down into a way that connected to me. I finally “clicked” with the idea of the Holy Spirit; it was at this camp where I accepted Christ into my life. I understood that I don't have to make myself a perfect person in order to follow him but instead, it is though God that I am made perfect. This moment when I had accepted Christ was not one that you can really put into words because nothing would truly do it justice in how powerful the feeling and emotions were. I was able to go on my first international mission trip to Chitipa, Malawi where God shook my entire world. Ministering in one of the most gorgeous places in the world and getting to do things that made such an eternal impact on people opened my eyes to a whole new side of God. In that length of time the Lord revealed this is what he wants me to do with the rest of my life. God moved and pushed me to lengths I never thought possible on these trips and blessed me with an amazing team to guide through it. I was even baptized in the Indian Ocean by my amazing missions director Mike Talley. Once again, God has presented me with the opportunity to go back to my little bit of heaven. This time I will being going to Malawi and Tanzania in May 2016 with E3 Partners. Throughout my time there, some of my highlights will include door to door evangelism, church planting, creating medical and veterinary clinics, children’s ministry, sex trafficking education and also sports and music ministry. Any donation that can be made, big or small, would be immeasurably appreciated. If you are not able to donate, please say a simple prayer for our team as we travel to south eastern Africa, for safe travels, and mostly for the hearts and lives that will be impacted on our journey.
