I Can Make A Difference

 

What is the purpose of your trip?

To share the message of Christ and give non-believers a reason to believe. We will be talking to young kids, kids my age, who don’t know Christ and we will be sharing the good news. It makes me feel good to think that He will look down at me and say well done.

 

Where are you headed to? 

Africa

 

What made you want to go?

I just thought it would be cool to go and experience a different culture. The opportunity to go visit another country doesn’t come by every day so really, I just thought “oh, that sounds cool”. At first my dad wasn’t too happy about the idea of me going to another country by myself but after a while ( I think a lot of praying) but I don’t know what changed his mind just maybe that I really wanted to go.

 

Are you nervous at all? I mean this is a whole different continent.

No not really, I’m just excited and ready to go.

 

What is the cost of your trip? How are you raising the money?

$3000. Each person going is raising their own money and one of the ways we are doing this is by selling holes for a golf tournament. I am also using money I earned while working last summer, I saved it and now it’s going towards the trip. So far, I have a little over $200 raised.

 

What do you hope to gain from this experience?

I don’t know, I never really thought about it. But now that you ask I guess it would be that I learn more about myself and who Christ is asking me to be. I want to know that I have done a good job and that he is pleased with me. I really look forward to understanding these new people I will meet and I hope that from our talks and stuff. They will come to know Christ and accept Him as their Lord and Savior.
