Through my church, Message of Love Church in Belmont, NC, I am involved in several local and international mission outreaches that are dear to my heart, and I believe worthy of consideration.
Message of Love Church Food Pantry
At the Message of Love Food Pantry, we regularly serve the hungry of our local community and surrounding areas. We work with Second Harvest Food Bank in Charlotte, NC to buy food at a discount as available. When food is unavailable, we buy directly from local grocery stores. We serve hundreds of families every month, and it is our desire to turn no one away that is in need of food.
Arms of Hope Children’s Home
Message of Love Church helps support the Arms of Hope Children’s Home in Mirebalais Haiti. Arms of Hope provides a loving home to orphans and abandoned children. They also have a nutrition program that helps kids that are unable to obtain sufficient food. The program lasts six weeks and pulls children with acute malnutrition back to a healthy weight. It was my privilege and blessing to travel to Haiti in 2015 ministering alongside my Pastor, Frankie Sneed.
The Binti Project
In 2016 and 2017 I had the opportunity to go to Moshi, Tanzania, Africa and come alongside missionaries, Vince and Vicki Welch and their ministry, The Binti Project. The Binti Project rescues, rehabilitates, and restores young ladies trapped in the sex trade. They go out onto the streets of the red light district to reach girls and provide a place of safety and refuge for the women and their children who want to leave this industry. Along with the necessities of food, water, clothing, medical care, and a home the ladies are given intense discipleship, educational and vocational training.
