Partner with me as I serve in Santiago, Chile with Bright Hope, an organization that brings hope to those living on less than $1 a day
For a long time the Lord has placed a passion and a brokeness for low-income communities in my heart. I graduated from Wheaton College with a degree in Internation Relations and Christian Education with the desire to serve communities in need. Inspite of what I desired the Lord led me to Target to work as a Manager, which is essentially the farthest from my dreams and passions as possible. This past year the Lord has humbled me and shown m that he calls me first to "seek his kingdom and his righteousness" (Matt. 6:33) regardless of what my job may be. Inspite of the challenges of this past year, my passion to serve low-income communities has not changed. Having come to understand that the Lord desires my absolute best I have found peace in surrendering this passion to Him. In doing so, through some unforseen circumstances, he opened a door to serve as an intern with Bright Hope.
