1. Tell us about the organization you chose.
My Life Speaks is an onsite missions/medical and educational facility based in Neply Haiti, and founded by my very dear friends Mike and Missy Wilson from Franklin TN
2. Why is this organization important to you or how has it impacted you personally?
Mike and Missy’s LIFE spoke to us for a year, first through youth sports where Mike was my oldest son’s first football coach, to later as the kids grew and watching them bring their passion for the poor into reality starting my life speaks, first as a mission trip only event, then eventually moving their entire family down to Haiti and researching the area with the greatest need…which turned out to be Neply.
3. Finish the sentence: I give back because…
I (really we in the western world) were born into privilege just via circumstances of geography and God’s great design of my life. I believe we should give generously to any cause that tugs at our hearts to make the world a more level playing field.
4. If you could give a word of encouragement to this organization, what would it be?
Your life IS speaking around the globe! The 1000s of Haitians you are blessing and the 1000s of people you have aligned with the volunteer in Neply are one of the biggest blessings I’ve witnessed. A life of other-centeredness is played out in your lives!Visit mylifespeaks.com for more info!
