The Group's Purpose

Breanna and I are growing in a deeper love for those around us while also gaining a deeper understanding of how we can express the love we have so graciously received, to others. We have already begun this journey by partnering with a local soup kitchen in Whalley; and now we are taking a huge step out of our comfort zones by challenging ourselves on a 3 week mission’s trip to an Orphanage housing over 50 children in Mpigi; located in the east central part of Uganda, Africa.

How to Help

Partnering with us through donations to support the team of 18 volunteers going overseas to bring hope to a nation that often feels like the rest of the world has forgotten about them.

About the Organizers

My name is Chase, and I have been happily married to my wife Breanna for 3 years. I spend 3 days of my week volunteering in my community for 3 different organizations in various capacities. From mentoring young adults, firefighting, to partnering at a soup kitchen just outside my city.
My wife Breanna has just finished an intensive 4 year nursing program, and we are looking at this trip as a transformational opportunity to set our hearts on a path for the rest of our lives.
It may be of interest to know that up until this year I used to be against short term missions. I felt the costs associated with flying ‘Westerners’ overseas would be better spent on the ground as aid in the destination community. This was something that always put a sour taste in my mouth until I spoke about this feeling to a long term missionary friend. What he said changed my perspective forever. Brent told me, “The one thing short term missions bring that long term missionaries never can is this: the hope that the rest of the world has not forgotten about them". BOOM. We are not going on a site seeing tour of the impoverished, on the contrary, we are embracing the local community by serving and loving as equals with all our hearts.
