I am serving on the Boaz Board because our whole family is passionate about bringing the hope of Jesus to orphans all around the world. God orchastrated my introduction to the Boaz Project in a way that only He could do and I am honored to be on this leadership team.
I have been a financial and prayer supporter of The Boaz Project from
I serve in obedience to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He tells us to “look after orphans and widows in their distress”. He also tells us “whatever you dd for one of the least of these, you did for me”. By serving on the board I can play a small role in helping orphans learn that Jesus loves them and wants to be part of their life eternally.
I choose to commit my time to the Boaz Project because I love their mission. I can’t think of anything more valuable than caring for orphans. I love the house parent model, and I think it’s so beneficial for the children. The Boaz Project does a phenomenal job of training house parents, which ensures that more than just the physical needs of the children are met. These kids have the chance to grow up knowing they are loved and valued. If there’s a worthier cause to spend my time on, I haven’t found it yet.
God has planted in my heart a desire to reach orphans around the world so that they might know they were created with intention and purpose by a God who loves them. The Boaz Project is effectively making this happen and actively continues to seek the Lord’s guidance for their organization. Jim and April Jurgensen are passionate and educated about their work and it is a privilege to partner with them in this endeavor.
I have chosen to serve on the Boaz Board of Directors the last few years because I believe deeply about the mission this ministry has to care for abandoned and neglected children across the globe. One of the biggest areas of impact that has meant so much to me is seeing how this ministry comes around the care takers of these children. The Boaz project truly tries to provide the resources needed for these caretakers to meet the needs of the children – emotionally, spiritually, and physically. Serving with this ministry has been a humbling experience for me, because it is so easy to get caught up in the day to day life here in the US. But, I have found that serving with this ministry has challenged me to pray more faithfully for this ministry’s work, as well as, other orphans, abandoned children, and for individuals pouring out their lives to love and care for these children. This ministry has been an incredible blessing to me!
