Review for Just One Africa, Inc., Alpharetta, GA, USA
Loving on people IS LIFE! Just One Africa is a place and people you can give to, serve with, and invest in that daily LOVE ON PEOPLE all around the world. Your life will be fuller and your heart enlarged by getting involved. Your dollars, your hour of time, your prayer, your letter to a child, your time spent on the ground in Kenya will change lives forever (including yours!) :) We make time for those who are important to us. Children, widows, and families are the heart of JOA!
I've had the wonderful privilege of seeing first hand the heart and hands behind JOA. This is a family that lives out their mission and are working to build relationships with others who have a heart to give, serve, and make their lives worth something more than just their own. I was able to be a part of a trip to Kenya with JOA to help distribute hundreds of water filters in very remote areas, provide school supplies and teacher development to schools, and spend time with children, women, and families in desperate life circumstances. My heart was broken for the hurt and need of the people I met and saw, but even more, my desire to make a difference and love on those that have seemingly been forgotten or those who are unseen was renewed. It can be easy to forget that so many live in despair and unthinkable circumstances when it's not in front of you on a consistent basis. It is easy to get in "the rut" of my daily schedule and not remember that millions of children are orphaned, starving, and without hope. Their are widows who have lost everything and wonder how to make it to another day. JOA is an amazing organization that MAKES A DIFFERENCE in the lives of people. It is tangible! It is hope! It is love!
Come be a part of making a difference in lives! You will not ever regret the decision to invest in another person's life! Their life will be touched with your love, and your heart will be filled as well!
