The Story

I believe that God has called me to step out of my comfort zone and to serve others and to make an active difference in the world that I live in. 

I am currently placed at the in LA, serving actively in a ministry and local community that is fighting against the rapidly growing human trafficking industry here in LA. I work at an emergency shelter where victims are able to come and find rest, love, and the change for restoration and a new life. I also work on the outreach team, going out onto the streets of LA and the well know 'tracks' to speak to these women and girls (many as young as 12) and to offer them a way out of the nightmare that they are trapped in.

I was initially blessed to be accepted onto a 6 month Volunteer Missionary program to serve with this ministry, but have now been offered a 12 month placement! I am extremely excited about this opportunity, but to make this possible, I will at least need to raise the money needed for my accomodation / food and program fees ($4,000 for 12 months). I also need to fundraise for additional living costs, and for a final set of return flights (+- £650).

Volunteering has given me the opportunity to be a part of a ministry that is actively serving the community and sharing God's love in a practical way.  I believe that this experience will equip me for the calling that God has on my life in the future.

Please help to make this mission a possible by praying for me while I am here, and also by sponsoring me to cover my living costs, either on this site or in person. Any contribution, no matter how big or small, will make a huge difference! 

Thank you kindly for your time, prayers and sponsorship!


Blessings!

Thank you everybody for all your support and messages! I flew back to LA yesterday and had a restful flight. I got back in time for thanksgiving dinner with my adopted Ethiopian family (which was amazing!) and slept the rest of the day and night.

Back to LA tomorrow (well, later today) and back to work on Saturday. Thank you for all your prayers and support - it means the world to me and I couldn't do this without you all! 

Blessings!
