I will be completing a year-long Serving and Learning Together (SALT) service term in Beirut, Lebanon through Mennonite Central Committee beginning in August 2019. While there, I will learn the beautiful language and culture, create relationships with locals, and intern at a partner organization doing very good work in the peacebuilding, development, and humanitarian response sectors. I am excited to be able to put my degree in Global Development Studies to practical use and explore the realities of working for an NGO. Though I am thrilled for the opportunity and the growth to come, I anticipate this will be quite a challenging year in many ways and I could use your support - financially, prayerfully, and relationally. I am required to raise $5,700 - half of the cost to MCC for facilitating me. If you are financially able and feel led, feel free to use this online platform to give and help me reach that goal. In addition, I will always appreciate prayers and kind words of support from my friends and family back home in the States and around the world.

Funds raised: $1,300.00 towards the goal of $5,700.00
