Anything else? This mission trip is a great first trip for a young lady who feels called to missions. We are so thankful for the support that the nannies can give to foster families so that we can accomplish our goal of showing these children the love of Jesus while we bring them to healing and restore their trust in grown-ups and joyful hearts.
