What is your church home?

Gateway Church

What inspired you to serve at Blessman International?

I have known the Blessman family for almost 20 years and witnessed Blessman International grow from its modest beginnings into the extraordinary organization it is today. I have watched Blessman International change the lives of both the community members it serves and the lives of its supporters and team participants. Hearing the stories of all the good work happening in South Africa is an experience that never gets old. I have seen children who once had little hope grow up to be strong community leaders, and I look forward to continuing the work with the next generation. 

What do you hope Blessman International accomplishes in the next 12 months?

We recently began a supplemental nutrition project by feeding a select group of children an egg daily in addition to their regular meals. I hope that this project will yield favorable data within the next year and that we can use the data to scale up the program. The program’s success will boost our farming team’s competency and data collection abilities. Most importantly, it will give children access to nutritious and locally sourced food.  

What do you wish people knew about Blessman International?

You need to come over on a mission trip. There’s no substitute for experiencing all the good work firsthand.

Tell us one fun fact most people don't know about you.

I enjoy running long distances. Every step is a gift, so the longer, the better.
