Coming to the Liberty Godparent Home was something that has changed my life forever. I want to start off by thanking my parents, the staff, and the girls. They have shown me that I can really find a true love for someone, and that is Jesus Christ. I was a Christian before I came here, but this place was a true eye opener.
My first mission trip was in Kingston, Jamaica, when I was 18. There I told orphans about Christ and how He loved then with His whole entire heart. But my biggest mission so far has been to change myself completely and learn to be a Godly mother. This is not as easy as it sounds, and it means I can't just think of myself and my friends anymore. Not only will I be a mother in a couple of months, but now I will be one who will raise her baby in the house of the Lord. I have to heep myself healthy and fit for my daughter too. Life isn't just about me. I need to think of others before myself.
