Have you ever wanted to be a part of something bigger than yourself?  Well, that is how my brother and I feel. This is Isaac Iacovetto and my brother and I have an opportunity to go to Johannesburg, South Africa with others from our youth group to work with an organization called Impact Africa.  Samuel and my dad went to Africa in 2015 and when my brother came home, he said that he would definitely be going back; Africa stamped his heart.  When this trip came up, Samuel knew he wanted to go and I felt a tug on my heart this time.....so I begin praying and I feel like I too should be going.  I am not going to lie, it's out of my comfort zone, but sometimes what God calls us to do is outside what we are familiar with.  Actually, most of the time God calls it, I feel like it's usually not what we would have expected. 

We leave on February 14, 2020 and come back on February 23 and for that week we will be working in a preschool with underprivileged, orphaned and at risk children.   We will also be working with Impact Africa helping them with Impact Baby Rescue.  Because AIDS is rampant in Africa and contraception is not readily available, women who give birth in Johannesburg can leave their baby in a "baby safe box" (which are all over the city) and when authorities are notified, about a baby in a box, they can go rescue the baby with no questions asked.  Sad as this may sound, before the "baby box", many babies were found in dumpsters and trash bags throughout the city.  Impact Baby Rescue focuses on baby abandonment prevention, rescue and life-long family care. More than anything, we are going to Johannesburg to help in day to day needs and be the hands and feet of Jesus. To love people. 

The cost for Samuel and I to go is $3000 each and we are raising money specifically for this trip through sponsor letters, fundraising, and doing odd jobs.  We know that this will be a life changing experience, but we can't do this alone.  We feel called to go and know God will go before us and with us and can make the impossible possible. Please keep us in your prayers as there are 13 of us total going and we could always use the extra protection and words of encouragement. Would you please consider partnering with us and in doing so, extending your hand to Africa also?  Thank you!

Sincerely,

Isaac & Samuel Iacovetto
