This is my first missions trip, but I feel that God is leading me to go. Please pray for this entire team for strength, wisdom, compassion, and that we can work together as a cohesive unit, to shine God’s light for the people of Enaleni and Bhobhokazi. I know I speak for the entire team when I say we are honoured to represent all of Riverwood, and we will bring your hearts with us.
This is my first mission trip. I am very excited to share this experience with my wife Natalie and the rest of our team. I am expecting this mission to be a humbling excursion, and I am looking forward to helping the people of Swaziland experience God’s love through my hands and the efforts of our team.
It has been a childhood dream of mine to travel to Africa to help those that are in need. I am looking forward to building relationships, personal spiritual growth and being able to explore and use the gifts God has so graciously provided me with. I have been given this awesome opportunity to go and demonstrate my love and care for others through this mission experience and for this I feel truly blessed. I believe going to Swaziland will be a an awakening to a much more satisfying and fulfilling way of life, one that reminds us of the importance of grace and putting the needs of others before our own. Thanks to everyone for all your love and support and for helping me achieve my dream.
My name is Kelly and I am really excited to be a part of the Swaziland 2010 team. I felt God’s call to missions from a young age. I didn’t know what He had in store for me, only that I be willing to go when He revealed it. These last few years are a testament to Him. Since 2005, I have had the privilege of volunteering with International Healthcare Ministries, sharing my training as a nurse. Each experience has been a blessing, opening my eyes to faith like I’ve never seen. However, I have also been challenged to live my life in a deeper commitment to God and others. I feel confident God has great plans for the Swaziland trip, and am thankful to share in this opportunity. Thanks you for all your support! Isaiah 41:10
