It was never an issue of whether or not I wanted to travel the world and change people's lives for the better. It was always whether or not I was welcome. I've had to rely on my faith and believe that timing is everything. For the last couple of decades some things needed to take place before the cosmic tumblers locked into position.
I adapted. Learning to adapt is just one of the greatest gifts I've been given and it serves me well...but I was never fully happy.
So...for the most exciting news in our little family of 2...I am welcome. I am welcome to be a part of something greater.
Buck and I have the absolute honor to be a part of a team headed to Tanzania this summer.
We will be working with 2 organizations. Asking for the Nations, an organization focused on helping the people of Tanzania and more pointedly, the orphans in the country of Tanzania. They have partnered with Pastor Mramba to help purchase land, build a church, and build an orphanage to house the orphans and street kids of the country. The second organization is Giving Hope for Tomorrow. This group will organize a 3-4 day medical clinic during our trip. This will provide free medical care to locals including the Maasai tribe! We are currently looking for a dentist and an eye doctor to go on the trip with us. They do not have to stay the entire 10 days unless they want to. They are welcome to come for the medical clinic portion only. Please help us by asking people you know!
This summer, July 20-30 2018, Buck and I will travel with this incredible team with the goal to begin building the church and work on building relationships with the orphans in the town of Moshi.
Moshi is a town in northern Tanzania, near the Kenyan border. It's known as a gateway to Kilimanjaro National Park, home to Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. Trails run up the mountain’s cloud-ringed, snow-capped dome, through alpine forests and meadows home to elephants and leopards. One of Tanzania's major coffee-producing hubs, Moshi is known for its coffee farms and auctions.
