Our family served this summer in South Africa at an orphanage for over 100 children affected by HIV/ AIDS. Each of us was blessed witnessing how God’s love can transform even the most grim of circumstances. The donations and care were so appreciated by these vulnerable children but surprisingly, they seemed most grateful that we came-that people from far away cared enough about them and their plight to work alongside them. We have decided as a family to step out in faith and out of our comfort zone and commit to serve in various overseas nonprofits for the next 12 months. Given the fact that Ken can take time from his credit hedge fund work and our two older kids will only be at home for a few more years, we felt it was an opportune time to serve at organizations that have long term impact.
