About this campaign

I am travelling to Gambia with a team of individuals from across Canada to partner with the Local Operation Christmas Child (OCC) National Leadership Team to distribute OCC shoebox gifts and minister in various communities.

I am so excited to be able to have this opportunity. I am hoping that while I am there I will become more aware of the culture and the needs of the people in Gambia. I am excited to share God's love with the people and to teach them about His Word.

This will be a faith-stretching experience for everyone as we learn to rely on God by stepping out into the unknown and allowing Christ to work through us.

The cost of the trip is one of the many areas that I am anxious to see how God is faithful to the amazing team of people that will be going. If the Lord lays it on your heart to support me finically, I would be very grateful.

"Go into all the world and preach the gospel creation." Mark 16:15
