The main focus of our outreach will be working with children. Our team has started to prepare programs, songs, skits, crafts, and lessons to do with the kids. Our goal is not to just have fun with the kids, but to impact their lives with simple yet such amazing truth. Our DTS theme is compassion, which is defined as when a person's love for God motivates him to have empathy for others and take action because of it. I absolutely can't wait to meet all the amazing people, experience the new cultures, and learn a lot. I will definitely be sharing all of the amazing stories and experiences I have while on the trip.
In Kenya we will be doing work in two different areas. First we will be going to Nukuru, which is northwest of Nairobi. We will be working with an organization called Sure 24 Homes, which has a very similar focus to Ten Thousand Homes. Then we will be going to a suburb of Nairobi, called Soweto. There we will be doing more things like inner city work with an organization called Tumaini African Foundation.
In India we will also probably be going to two different places. The place we will be staying for the longest is in Kolkata, specifically in the Red Light District. We will be staying at and working at a day shelter that takes in women and children from the streets and tries to provide healing in as many areas as possible. We will be spending Christmas at the shelter, and I'm so excited to celebrate and give some hope and happiness to these people! After we stay at the shelter, we also might work at an orphanage in Pune.
I would so much appreciate you partnering with me in this amazing experience! I know that God has an amazing plan for my team. I know that He doesn't want us to just make a dent in this world, but to radically change it! He wants us to radiate His light into all of the dark corners of the earth. If you would like to know more details about it, don't hesitate to contact me. If you would like to partner with me in prayer or donate money to support me, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or message me on facebook. Thank you all so much for your interest!
