An honest moment.

Never in my life have I felt more fulfilled and at peace with who I am and where I am. I knew that God had some adventures planned for me but I could never have imagined that this was the life that he had prepared for me. Sure, its not always easy. There are moments every day where I wonder what I’m doing and why God chose me for the job. But over all, this is beautiful. I have been blessed with an amazing family here who I love more and more every day. I get to be a part of and incredible program that focuses on reuniting families and restoring hope. This is what God has allowed me to be a part of.

Since I have left school I have been living off of others generosity. My life as a missionary depends on other people. I have been incredibly blessed over the years to have met people who have supported my passion to serve and love the poor wherever God may call me. I am overwhelmed by the financial and prayer support that my friends and family all over the world have given me over the years.

This year has been a difficult year financially. Over the months I have cut back on as much added expenses I could, including things like much needed Portuguese lessons. The idea of going through some financial difficulties is not something that had scared me before. I have been through times like this before. It’s the nature of what I do. I live with what I have got. Unfortunately this time, things are a little more serious. Really, to put it simply, in just over 3 months my support will no longer be sufficient for me to carry on with my work here in Maputo. If I do not manage to get more support in monthly I will have to leave Maputo. I know God has called me here. I know that He has placed this passion in my heart and I know that I have never felt more at home but I have to face the reality.

Please would you consider giving toward my work here in Mozambique. If you are not able to help financially and are the praying type… Then all the prayers would be appreciated.. Or… just tell people about the work that is going on in Mozambique. Maybe as you talk you will find someone who is willing to get involved.

Posts like this are not easy. Its hard to tell it like it is with out making people feel guilty. This is not a guilt trip. Its just my reality. And my reality is that I have to ask for money.

If you do need more info about the project, on how to pray or how to give please email me on or send me a facebook message.
