I am so excited to share with you my next God-directed adventure. I registered to travel with Corner of Love this coming February. God has given me a heart for people. He continuously gives me opportunities to walk in the desire be the hands and feet of Jesus. This missions opportunity is my next step. I am very excited to able to be a part of the amazing group and to have this be my very first missions trip.
Corner of Love serves in rural settings, going to each patient’s home or village to deliver medical, dental, and eye care. Medicine and supplies are packed each day and brought by truck, bus, horseback, or backpack to reach remote communities. One of the most important things we do is distribute anti-parasite medications where there is no potable water supply. We work alongside Nicaraguan doctors and volunteers and host medical and dental professionals from all over the world to bring healthcare to more than fifty villages each year.
I am sharing all of this and writing you today for support. I need you, the people I love, to help make this trip happen. Our team will be going January 31st through February the 7th. I need your support in two major areas. First, I need support through prayer. Please, do not overlook this vitally important element of the support I seek. God is leading me and I covet your prayers as I prepare and as I go for the sake of the Gospel of Jesus. I am asking that you pray for my team and I specifically. We are preparing spiritually, mentally, physically, and emotionally. The second area I need your support is financial. The cost of this trip is $2,000 due in increments with final balance paid by November 2015. I am not in a position to cover this entire amount myself yet I believe that God will provide. Please don’t turn away because of the total amount. I have witnessed God move bigger mountains! I believe that through the support of those who love me that the entire cost will be raised. Please keep in mind that any and every amount given is a blessing and will help me get one step closer to this calling God has placed on my heart. No donation is too small.
Thank you in advance for being an important part of this exciting journey! I look forward to updating you after the trip! Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding the trip, our team or my own personal journey.

This trip is open to volunteers from Corner of Love’s Ohio Chapter and anyone connected to those coming on this week. We expect “The Team of Servants” Week 2 to have about 25-40 participants, including Dr. Andy Hart and Kathy Hart and friends. Last year’s Ohio group brought a fantastic dental team and we hope that repeats! When was the last time you did something so profound it changed your life forever? This week of mission will be that kind of experience. As part of the team, you’ll experience a week filled with hard work that is amazingly rewarding. We’ll carry out four medical-dental clinics in rural, mountainous communities where families survive on less than $1 U.S. per day and most lack basic needs like clothing, potable water, and medicine. Each day we’ll pack our supplies, load them onto trucks and buses, and venture out to set up mobile clinics that offer stations like height and weight, visual acuity, general medicine, dental care, pharmacy, clothing, prayer station, and more. One day of clinic will also be held at our own facility, Plaza de Bondad on La Lima River (one kilometer from our Quinta). As always, we do NOT only need healthcare professionals, we also need general volunteers who are willing to help count pills and vitamins, organize the pharmacy, sort shoes and donations, and run the clinics. We have many jobs like filling goodie bags, sorting charts, separating toiletries, etc. that do not require healthcare knowledge. Of course there is a huge need for doctors, dentists, and nurses, too! Help us glorify God and come and serve with us! “Nos vemos en la Quinta!”
