This summer, I have the amazing opportunity to serve as part of a program called Engage Intern through ELIC (English Language Institute/China). ELIC is a non-profit organization which sends Christians to Asia to teach conversational English to students there. I will be teaching English for two months abroad in southeast Asia. I am most looking forward to building intentional relationships with my students.During the month of June, I will be in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I will be teaching conversational English to university students and serving with a childrens ministry doing sports and activities with local Khmer kids.After that, my team will fly to Vietnam. The first week I will be in the capital city of Hanoi and be part of a cultural exchange program with university students. Then I will go to the countrysideand have t
It's no secret that I've been advocating for the plight of the refugees in Europe. Nearly every day I think to myself that I need to go to to Greece. Well now I am. I will be heading to Greece in June to distribute aid, hope, and humanity.The brutal conflict in Syria has caused one of the largest crisis the world has ever seen. Volunteers from around the world are in camps every day trying their best to ease pain, feed babies, put shoes on feet, and fit baby carriers to moms, dads, and siblings so they can have their hands free to take care of themselves and their neighbors.This summer I am hoping to count myself as one of those volunteers on the ground in action as the helper that is so desperately needed. I know it may be asking a lot, but I am asking for your help to get me there. I'd like to collect $2,000 to cover the cost of flights, accommodations, and some extra to purchase additional aid on the ground.
I'm Tim and I want to help the people that had no other options then to jump in a small boat with to many people and then could only hope to get ashore safely. I want to help those who came to Europe with the hope of being able to lead a normal live again, but instead they were put in to camps, like aninmals, and locked away from the rest of the world with large fences, barbwire and often law officers who will hurt anyone who tries to get out off a camp. But what people often forget is that these people have given up everything, their home, their family and loved ones and risked even the lives of not only themselves but often their childeren's lives. And what did they get for that? Being treated like animals, that's what they got.But I will try to help them, because on December 7th 2016 I will travel to Greece and help the people who are already helping the refugees in the camps. The trip is already self funded, and with the money from this campaign I will buy the thin

Early last year, I was extremely lucky to have been accepted into a Ph. D. program in marine biology at the Bimini Biological Field Station - SharkLab (www.biminisharklab.com) in the Bahamas, to commencethis Juneof 2015. The only obstacle Im currently facing: funding. That is why, through the gofundme website, I am asking for your support!
This past April of 2016, less than 20 Standing Rock Sioux youth began taking action in North Dakota to peacefully and prayerfully protect water, to protect life, to protect the future of our grandchildren's grandchildren.When they first put the call out for other nations to come and support their work, several months passed before anyone came to support the efforts. Today there are more than 220 Nations who have arrived at camp to stand in Solidarity with those at Standing Rock. Of the thousands there now, many of these protectors are witho
