If any of you have been blessed enough to work with our sweet consultant Emily, you know she has the biggest heart and has a desire to share her love with the world. Not many college students want to spend their summer helping others, but that is exactly what Emily is going to do. She just needs a little bit of help to fund her trip to get there!
Here are a few words from Emily:
"The desire to educate others on health and nutrition and my calling to spread the love of Jesus has lead me to a calling to serve an under-privileged country for the summer between my junior and senior year of college. God has called me to spread His love and further His kingdom while taking care of His children close to home and in far away countries.
I am so excited to say that I will be serving as a missionary through Adventures in Missions in their Passport Program! The Passport program is a two month long mission trip to a specific country with a group of college age women. While in Swaziland, Africa, we will partner with a ministry that is already active in the community. Our ministry will work alongside the Adventures Swaziland Base; we will be feeding thousands of adults and children at Carepoints every day. I will have the opportunity to spend quality time with the community building relationships and helping to meet practical needs. Other ministry projects include construction on new and existing structures, helping plant, grow and harvest community gardens; teaching at local preschools; helping with administrative tasks; building relationships and connecting with people in hospitals and homes through conversation, prayer and encouragement.
I am so excited to see how God will move in my life and the lives of others in the coming year. I hope not only to be a blessing to those I serve, but also to you. I want to thank you in advance for your prayers and financial support. May God bless you as you prayerfully consider partnering with me in this ministry." -Emily
