Why are you going on this trip to Rwanda?
My daughter has been working with disadvantaged children in South Africa for the past five years. The passion she has shown and the love she has grown for helping others less fortunate has given me a great appreciation for what Mercy can do to assist in other countries. This opportunity will allow me to not only experience what she has for the last few years, but also to help develop my own personal ministry. It would make me proud to represent Mercy in what we hope will be a long term and successful joint venture with the people of Rwanda.
What are your favorite outside-of-work activities?
I enjoy reading, travel, time with family and all types of sporting events.
