Patricia Lutes' Fundraiser:

Missionary Trip To Kenya

Patricia's Photo


Patricia Lutes


Hello, For those of you who do not know me, my name is Patricia Lutes and here is my story. My first encounter with Kenya was years ago. When I was a little girl, I saw a photo of a boy on a poster. I remember the image vividly. He was my age and his skin was a rich black color. In his hands he held a bowl of rice. The thing that stuck in my mind most vividly was the sadness of his brown eyes. I made a promise to God that day and to the boy in the poster - I promised that one day I would travel to Kenya to bring him food and clothing. Fast forward # years and I am months away from fulfilling this promise. In October 2016 I will travel to Kenya to volunteer in the capacity of nurse practitioner. I will join Catholic Medical Mission Board (CMMB) in their mission to help deliver healthier lives to women and children where it is needed most. I believe the teaching that we are made in the image and likeness of God and I choose to believe that we are all brothers and sisters who need each other to make the world a better place - a space filled with peace and love. The worst disease is not Ebola, HIV, AIDS, cancer or any physical ailment - the real disease is apathy, greed, selfishness, power, arrogance, and hatred. You can help me fulfill my promise and bring to those most impacted by extreme poverty access to healthcare. My fundraising goal is $5,000, though I aim to raise much more! Your generous gifts will help bring the women, children and their communities access to much needed health care and the potential for so much more.
