4 YEARS AGO TODAY….

On April 29, 2010 God broke my heart for the orphans even more than when I was 7.  For the kids that had no one.

I would stand in front of children here that had no one to care for them or love them and my heart broke.  I would look at the pic of my baby sister and realized more and more that many of the kids in Africa had no food, water or medicine while I had so much.  And my heart broke even more.

I wished I could help somehow, but then it hit me that I could.  That it didn’t have to be like this.  Then God gave me the vision for FTO and I was beyond excited (you can read that store HERE).  I couldn’t wait to help change this world.  I wake up everyday excited for how He will use me that day to further His kingdom.

 

Today as we celebrate all that God has done in just 4 years, I am amazed.  I sit here remembering all the trips to Ghana and all the kids I came in contact with.  I remember playing tag, soccer, bubbles, or just sitting and holding a little one.  I have been to Ghana 7 times and each time I go it feels like home.  It’s like I am just staying here in America for awhile, but someday I will board a plane with a one-way ticket.  I will go to the place that I call my HOME, to the place where the people and culture have stolen my heart.  To where God has led me.  Until then I will be here serving people that have also stolen a piece of my heart.  God has done so much and I can’t wait to see what He will do next.

Thank you so much for walking this journey and changing the world…one child at a time.
