I have been greatly blessed by God in many different ways throughout my life. He has taught me so much about hope, faith, love, compassion, mercy, grace and forgiveness. I've decided this is the perfect time for me to take this opportunity to give back and to help others who are hurting very deeply and going through the most traumatic times of their lives. I pray God uses me, guides me, gives me the words and ability to help others. I hope to show them that they are not walking alone and Jesus is right there with them, just as he has always been there for me.
Here is a little info about the mission trip and what we will be doing. Greece is the entryway into Europe for refugees fleeing their countries due to war and crisis. There are refugees from over 40 different countries, many are now stranded in Greece. As European borders close, Greece has become a ‘warehouse of souls’ for refugees. These lost and desparate souls need help in many different ways, their stories listened to with compassion, understanding and to hear the word of God and the bible as they process through what they have been living through and to carry them forward to a new life. We will partner with local churches to demonstrate God’s love through Medical, Eyeglass and Evangelism teams. We will be part of what God is doing through this historic crisis as he draws people to him.
