Why this trip?
Since fourth grade, God has given me a deep passion to go to the ends of the earth proclaiming the gospel and to provide people with essential resources such as clean water. In the past few years, with your help and God’s provision, I have been able to spend time sharing the gospel with people in Belize (’14, ’15, ’16), Panama (’15), Dominican Republic (’17), and Jamaica (’18). At the same time, by God’s grace, my friends and I were able to raise $4,800 to build a clean water well in South Asia.
For much of my life, these two pursuits have been mutually exclusive, but this trip provides a unique opportunity for my friends and I to share the gospel by providing essential resources such as clean water. Since going to college, I have become a member at Redeemer Community Church and have been given an opportunity to travel to Haiti with twenty-five other college students.
Redeemer Community Church has partnered with Filter of Hope to see life transformation in the lives of families living in spiritual and physical poverty by sharing God’s love and providing access to clean water.
Please consider joining with me through prayer or financial support as we fulfill the Great Commission by going to the ends of the earth proclaiming the gospel.
What else is God doing in my life?
After graduating high school and leaving Be Lifted in the hands of trusted high school students, I started Anchored Passion with a few college friends. Anchored Passion is run by a group of college students who are passionate about creating online resources that exalt Christ, equip the Church, and engage the culture through the proclamation of the Gospel. We now have students who serve as regular contributors from Samford University, Wheaton College, North Greenville University, Gordon College, Texas A&M University, and Texas Christian University. God is doing incredible things through this ministry and I am excited to see what he continues to do!
A few weeks after arriving on campus at Samford University, some friends and I started an intensive accountability/discipleship group for freshmen guys called Samford Doods. Months later, we have taken up a church planting style model of growth, meaning we grow to a certain size and then split off always training and empowering other students to step into leadership roles. As we approach the Spring semester, we have helped underclassmen guys at UAB and freshmen girls at Samford start partner groups. We now have over 60 students involved in groups. These groups are full of students who commit to daily Scripture reading and prayer, weekly evangelism, and a fight for personal holiness.
