Dear Family and Friends ,
I am honored to announce that I have been selected to participate in an Operation Christmas Child (OCC) distribution trip with Samaritan’s Purse to Belize. Selected volunteers from across the U.S. will form teams that will visit surrounding villages, minister to the local people, participate and distribute OCC shoebox gifts to needy children within these communities.
I am very excited to see how God will use this team for His will and purpose, as well as, how each of us will grow spiritually as individuals. I desire to become more aware of the culture and needs of the people in Belize in order to truly understand them and be a witness of Christ’s love. This will be a faith-stretching experience to rely on God by stepping out into the unknown and allowing Christ to work through me.
I would appreciate if you would pray for this great opportunity. Please pray for health, travel, finances and unity within the team as well as for the people of Belize… that God will open their hearts and minds to the gospel.
The cost for my expenses for this trip to Belize is estimated to be ~$3,000. Samaritan’s Purse is a non-profit charitable organization and has agreed to accept donations to help me cover my costs for this trip. If the Lord lays it on your heart to support this trip financially, I would be very grateful.
You can donate online by clicking on the link below!

All gifts should be made payable to Samaritan’s Purse and mailed directly to their office prior to March 31.
