I am so excited to share with you my amazing opportunity to serve as an intern with Lifesong for Orphans in Zambia, Africa this summer! Both Lifesong for Orphans and the people of Zambia are dear to my heart and I am beyond thrilled to serve there for the months of June and July. While there I will be mentoring junior and senior high girls, playing lots of soccer to form relationships with the students and helping with worship. In addition, I will be serving the missionaries there and helping with teams who come to serve.
Since I was a young girl I have always wanted to serve in Africa and while I was in El Salvador the Lord had placed a burning desire to pray for Zambia specifically. I am humbled that he is now taking those daily prayers and using me to minister using my favorite things: soccer, music and service to others.
I am in need of financial and prayer partners to assist me in God’s great adventure. I am required to raise $3500 by the end of May, as well, I covet your prayers. Would you please prayerfully consider partnering with me? Your tax-deductible contributions can be made to the address below. Honestly, raising these funds in such a short time seems like an unsurmountable mountain, however I believe with great faith and friends my feet will be on the ground in Zambia before I know it!
They say when God closes one door he opens another. Will you be willing to walk through this new door with me? I would love to chat with you and answer any questions you might have about my time there or about the great things that Lifesong has been doing in Zambia. They truly are raising orphans to know the Lord and serve him. Thank you in advance and God bless you!
In his love and for his glory,
