The mission experience with W D Tyree Ministries taught me compassion. I cannot begin to express the tremendous impression it left on my life. In Kenya, I did a whole lot of growing up. My relationship with God grew stronger as I learned to live for Christ by serving others. I remember one time, in particular, when our team distributed clothing at an orphanage. I had sorted through some of the gently used clothing that was donated, wondering why anyone would want these items. The expressions on the faces of children who received them were as if Christmas had come early. It made me cry knowing that a heart of compassion goes a long way. It made me appreciate things back in America and be more willing to share my blessings.
