I’ve longed for a purpose, a reason why I’m here, a direction… and after the first day walking the slums of Nairobi in 2011 during a medical mission, I knew this was it!

It was then that I pledged my life to missions and to help where ever I can…to “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” as written in Mark 16:15. I’ve traveled across the world these past 8 years and this year is another mission to Uganda to continue what was started in 2011.

Uganda has been in my heart since my first visit in 2015. I spent 6 months working in the villages of Rushaga and Rubuguri where many of you have followed me there via social media. The women and children of those villages won my heart and I call them my family.


Over the next 23 weeks I will be walking/running 100 miles to shed light on the needs and hope for a way out of poverty for the girls and women in country.

Susan and I will be returning to Uganda on July 31st to support our women and children in the villages of Rushaga, Rubuguri and Kashija.

We are walking to help raise the support we need… we both are walking 100 miles each to help:

  • To help the 15 million girls under the age of 17 to not have to get married to survive.

  • To educate the girls between 15–19 that they don’t have to die in childbirth because of poor medical care.

  • That 3 million women and girls worldwide do not have to be enslaved in the sex trade.

  • To protect the women between 15–45 who are more likely to be maimed by or die from gender-based violence than from cancer, malaria, traffic accidents and war combined.

  • To help girls and young women have the opportunity and means to vote, to inherit land and to have access to justice.

Each step we take will be one step closer to fighting for the rights of women and girls to overcome poverty and discrimination.
