Grace Beecher is not your typical teenager. While she runs a blog and many of the things she writes about are very typical, her goals for after she graduates are awe-inspiring. Grace wants to go on a 9 month long mission to show the love of Jesus halfway around the world.
Where is she going? She will be going to the Adventures in Missions, Passport: Immersion trip that goes to some of the poorest places in the world such as Central America, Southeast Asia and Africa. On this mission trip, she will do outreach projects to the poorest of the poor.
I deeply admire any young person who has such spirit and a great goal in mind, one filled with love and a greater calling.
This is not the first mission Grace will be attending. She has also helped build a house in Guatemala as well as spent a month living with the people in Kenya.
Her mission that starts September 1st, 2013 will start in Central America. There, she will spend 3 months teaching English, working with impoverished children and doing community service. After that, she will spend 3 months in Southeast Asia, an area known for human -trafficking and slavery. She will be building relationships with those who are enslaved and giving them the courage to leave the industry. Finally, in Africa, she will be visiting hut to hut and spreading the love of Jesus.
This amazing and inspiring young lady needs to raise 12,000 dollars to attend her trip and according to her blog, she is 1/4 of the way there, but she needs your help! You can donate any amount monthly, quarterly and one time in any amount by visiting her donation page. I encourage you to donate to this wonderful young lady and for her mission.
