My passion for outreach and helping others started at an early age. I spent my time serving at soup kitchens and bringing basic necessities to our friends on the streets. In 2019, God led me to Guatemala on a mission trip. During this trip to Guatemala, I heard stories that touched my heart. I was able to witness the need for love and hope first hand. It was there that a sense of urgency came over me that urged my heart to act.
For me, Planting Hope and Love is symbolic of a bridge that we are able to cross to help those in need. I believe that we can all step up and fill in the gap to bring hope and God's love to places that are hard to reach in the world.
I believe that, “We love because He first loved us” 1 John 4:19 and it is from that love that I desire to serve and help others. I may never change the world, but I hope someday, someway, somebody’s life in this world becomes a little bit better, because they were loved and cared for. That will always be my HOPE.
