Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing
because he could do only a little

I recently returned from a two-week trip to South Africa with Threads Africa. The teacher-training workshops I bring with me are being requested by more teachers and in other townships. The future of that project is growing beyond what I ever imagined. It is an area of service that is so fulfilling and yet challenges me in so many ways. It’s a place in which God has placed me, and I have been blessed over the past five years to share in the development of these teachers and the sweet children in their care.
Returning at the end of July, I was ready to spend some time digesting what I had seen, heard and learned there. But as life often goes, my days somehow became filled up with meetings, work responsibilities, family and financial matters. Sorting through all the muck that was beginning to quickly seep into every minute of my days, God once again grabbed my heart and pointed me in the direction of service.
On September 20-26th, I will be traveling to Managua, Nicaragua with Finding Freedom International and Breaking Chains. These organizations partner with safe houses around the world to rescue and restore the lives of children and young women who have been enslaved in sex trafficking. This will be a small vision team, learning about the many faces of human trafficking in Nicaragua and designing tangible ways to help bring long-term friendship, emotional healing and life skills to the victims and their caregivers. We will also conduct a small medical clinic, addressing some of the physical concerns of these young women. This is a step of faith for me into a new area of service, but I take this step in full confidence that God has a good plan. If all I can do is a little, I will still do that.
I am writing today to ask for your help. The trip expenses will be about $1500. Would you consider helping me raise the funds for airfare and accommodations, food and ministry supplies while I am there/? I would be so grateful for the help. If you would be willing to pray for clarity and safety for our team, those prayers would be cherished.
If you are able to contribute to my fundraising effort, please follow these instructions.
