Lauren heads out for a new adventure!!


My sweet girl has been in Ethiopia for over a month helping with the first three OH Teams. She has such a huge heart for Ethiopia! 
So much so, that she is responsible for so many of our young college students joining our OH Teams. 
 She is developing into such a great leader! 
She and Lincoln joined forces and went on a personal quest to get many of the Hope 4 Hopeless kids sponsored....and they did it! 
 She is looked up to and respected in Ethiopia by many of the leaders. 
 And the children just adore her!!

 It's been so great to have her here in Ethiopia with me and her brother! 
 Her heart overflows for her sponsored child and so many others here in Ethiopia.

Now her time in Ethiopia has come to a close and it is time for her to move on to South Africa! 
She is studying abroad and taking her love for Africa even further into her college studies. 

It was hard saying goodbye to my oldest girl 
but I am so excited for her and all that God has called her to!!

 I'm so proud of the young woman she has become! 


So she now says goodbye to Ethiopia and off to 
South Africa she goes for another big adventure of a lifetime! 
Live it up, sweet girl and take your passion to help others to the next level! 

 There were many of us ready to skype with her when she arrived. 
She is already missed so much by the team and the staff and leaders here in Ethiopia. 
But after skyping with her, we all see how much she already loves South Africa and her excitement is bubbling over to be there! 
Can't wait to see how God continues to use her and bless her!! 
We miss you, Lauren!!
