Friends and Family,

In 2013, a medical mission to the slums of Nairobi, Kenya altered my perspective on nursing and forever changed my life. As a medical provider, I saw 50 to 75 patients daily. Imagine an exam room, generator blasting in the background, a single lightbulb flickering while anxious eyes pierce your soul, searching for comfort. 

Nearly three years later, Kenya is calling my name again, and I gladly accept the call.

Eastside Christian Church in Southern California has planned another chance to be among an extraordinary team delivering medical and dental services throughout Kenya. In the Mathare Valley and Turkana, where health is poor and spirit is rich, I know that every patient cannot be physically cured, but the patient should always feel cared for.

I am beyond blessed to have this opportunity to help others and know there is a lot of work ahead as we begin to prepare. I could use your help!

First, I would be honored if you would pray for us…for preparation, for our journey, our ministry, and for the spiritual battles surely ahead. Secondly, I'd like to know if you would contribute to the work we are doing by covering part of the cost of the trip.

Each team member has been entrusted with raising an equal share of the total cost to send us. The amount I must personally raise is $3300 and it is due by June 26, 2016. If you wish to partner with me in this ministry please click on the “GIVE NOW” button to donate. (There is an option to cover the cost of the credit card fee that you can opt out of if you prefer.) Or if you prefer to give a check or cash donation you can make your check payable to “Eastside Christian Church” and note my name and "Kenya" in the memo line and mail/bring it to the address below. Contributions to our project are tax-deductible. You're very important to me. Thank you for considering being a part of my team. If you have any questions I’d love the opportunity to tell you more!
