And Here We Go…

Africa…

has been on our hearts for quite some time now. We have always wanted to go, but have not known the timing.

We feel that now is the time.


This will be me and Adam’s very first mission trip together, and we’re both SUPER excited! We will be heading to Mozambique’s capital city of Maputo to team up with Iris Ministries at  their Zimpeto Children’s Centre from June 5th- 28th. The center has lots of children and activities, as well as many local outreaches. The ministry is known for taking in and caring for orphans, feeding the poor, healing the sick through the power of Jesus, and declaring the gospel all over the world. We are going to just one of their many bases around the world.

The Lord has given us a desire to love and serve those in 3rd world nations, and orphans in particular. We feel that this trip will serve as such an important stepping stone to where we’re wanting to go with our lives. It will mark us in such an amazing way and will stretch our hearts in love. Jesus only has one set of hands and one heart here on earth, and that is ours. We want to lay our lives down, our own desires and dreams, and simply love the way that Christ loved.

“Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.”- James 1:27


We Need Your Help!

We need ALL of your prayers and financial support to get us there! The total trip will cost us approximately $9,000. This includes airfare, shots, and unpaid time off of work. We realize that the cost of this trip is huge, but we also know that we serve a huge God. Please pray about it and ask God if He’d have you partner with us in this. We appreciate any support you can give, even if all you can give right now is prayer. As we feel the Lord has put this trip on our hearts, we trust also trust Him to provide for it.
