Though I've never been called to go on a mission trip, I totally admire those who do and love helping them get there! There's a photographer in Orlando, Kristen, who will be visiting Africa soon through an organization called HeSentMe.org. The mission of the organization is to help improve the quality of life in developing countries by increasing awareness about energy and building wind turbines to create electricity for those in need. Their vision is to glorify God by offering hope to the spiritually and physically poor.
Wow. Life without electricity. It's hard to fathom that some people in our day and age still are without it. Without refrigerators. TV. Hair dryers. Computers. Twitter. Facebook. Blogs. All the luxuries. we as Americans truly take for granted.
I encourage you to check out Kristen's website and support them with your donation. Every little bit counts! It's truly in the giving that you receive!
