I have always had a heart for missions and have known for a long time that it is something God has called me to. That played a huge part in my choosing a career as a speech-language pathologist. I wanted to have a skill that I could use to serve God’s people all over the world. As soon as I heard about Hope Speaks, I knew that it was something I wanted to be a part of. I am so incredibly grateful that I have been given this opportunity. I will be in Uganda for 8 weeks this summer from June to August, and I cannot wait to get started!Hope Speaks is a wonderful ministry to help children with disabilities in Kampala, Uganda. 1 in 7 children are living with a disability. Their main ministry is providing Speech Therapy to hundreds of these children. They teach them to swallow, chew, understand and express language, and so much more. Many of the volunteers are Speech Language Pathology grad students, as well as Speech Therapy professionals. This will help them reach many more children with these services.
Thank you so much for being a part of my life and helping me accomplish something that's important to all of us! God bless you!
