This is Mike K’s first mission trip with Hope4Kids, however he is not new to missions. A number of years ago he went on a leadership tour traveling to countries like Hong Kong, the Philippines, Thailand and Russia. He has also gone on short term mission trips.
Mike and his family just started attending Northpoint church where they heard about Hope4Kids for the first time. When their pastor talked about the trip to Peru Mike’s heart leaped and his wife started jabbing him. He struggled a little because their anniversary is the 29th and he will miss it but his wife thought it would be okay in this case. Isn’t that sweet?
Mike is an assistant principal in the Peoria, AZ district. He said he received tremendous support from people at the school, his family and friends. He was amazed how generously people also supported him financially.
Among his highlights is making a difference by adding things the people don’t have. He helped build a public toilet in a barrio, painted a community center in one barrio and is helping put a roof on another community center. He loves that the team is bringing joy and sharing God’s love with the people of Peru. Building relationships.
Mike is an awesome guy and we are so appreciative of how hard he is working.
