We each have a calling on our lives, and God created me to be an occupational therapy assistant, an empath, and a fighter. What this means is that, 1) My job is to help heal and empower others through the use of movement, functional task analysis, and activity adaptation. 2) When I see the heartache and wanting in this world, it often breaks my heart. 3) Instead of letting the heartache beat me, however, I have chosen to use it as a driving force to work to make the world a better place -- for all God's children!

I know in my heart of hearts that Jehovah hears the cries of His children, and he enlists His people to help answer those prayers. As such, I do not find it a coincidence that I have been given the opportunity to go on this missions trip, but I need your help to get there! Will you partner with me to help others in need?

In September 2019, I and other members of a missions team will be partnering with Grace and Peace Missionary Fellowship to bring much needed medical supplies and therapeutic intervention to a rural town about an hour and a half east of the Haitian border. I will be be representing the therapy portion of the team. The nearest primary care doctor for the town is a three hour trip, so the town gets most of its medical care from missionaries that volunteer to come every few months. There is no running water in the town, and most people live in multi-family tin huts. In total, I am seeking to raise $2010 ($1500 for the trip itself, $160 for the passport and photo, $250 for the cost of a doctor's visit and immunizations, and $100 for any miscellaneous expenses that may arise.)

Let's work together to help shine the light and show the world that we are united, on a single battle front, as children of the Great I am; to show the world that when one of us suffers, we all suffer; when one is in need, we all want! Let us shine our light! Let us brave the fight, and, as the poet Dylan Thomas wrote, "Please do not go gentle into that dark night!.... Rage! Rage against the dying of the light!"

If financial support is not an option, please consider sharing this link, and/and or praying for our team -- that we would be able to accomplish the task to which we have been called, and that we would be able to use our skills to meet the very practical and very real needs of those we encounter on this journey!

Thank you for taking the time to read this post! Godspeed and Blessings to you all!
