Lives Changed - Testimony from a team leader

We are featuring stories from team members and leaders, as well as ministry and missionary partners and sharing some of their testimonies of how short-term trips have made an impact on them. Here's one of those testimonies:

"Becoming part of the Visiting Orphans family has been an amazing experience I never could have imagined. God had given me a dream of serving and ministering in Africa, but I had no idea where to even begin. A trip with VO in 2011 gave me that jumping-off point. Through opportunities and guidance provided by VO, I’ve become connected and engaged with ministries that are passionate about seeing the world changed – about BEing the change - through bringing the love of Jesus to the nations. Their amazing staff is committed to supporting short-term missionaries, as well as leaders, every step of the way – from the time you first fill out that application form, through every part of your planning and travel, and even after you return home, offering assistance and encouragement as you seek out the next steps God has for you. God is doing amazing things through Visiting Orphans! GO. BE. LOVE. is about so much more than just a cool trip to tell your friends about. It's about being the very hands and feet of Jesus."
