Hello and welcome!

My name is Jade Deschamps, and I'm a pre-med student at Southern Adventist University. My 21st birthday is coming up this Christmas and in lieu of presents, I am raising money to be able to serve in Bolivia starting this January!

Familia Feliz: Educational Center and Orphanage is a project in Bolivia which began in 2005. The goal at Familia Feliz is to provide a Christ-centered, safe, and loving home environment, an education, and medicalcare for children who are orphaned, abandoned, abused, neglected, unwanted, or have special needs. Here, I will be the children's orphanage mother and school teacher. I will be volunteering at Familia Feliz for 4.5 months, starting January and ending June of 2017.

There are about a dozen other volunteers going, and I need your help so I can join them in this mission that will stretch me to my limits physically, socially, and spiritually. It's hard for me to imagine not having a family to go home to, and I hope that God can use me in spite of myself.

How you can help

I am inviting your support in two areas. First, please pray for the children and myself. Many of these children have terribly tragic stories, so please pray for their healing. Secondly,  I need your financial support. Without volunteers, Familia Feliz would cease to exist, and the children would have to return to difficult homes, that is, if they have any.

All Southern Adventist University student missionaries are expected to help raise funds to support the Student Missions program. I need your support to help me and other student missionaries serve around the world. Would you please consider supporting the Student Mission program at Southern and helping me reach my goal of $2,800?

I've  been actively working as a tutor and raising funds, but I know that in order to reach my goal of $2,800 I will need the support of others, and I am asking you to partner with me in my mission. Any donation amount would be greatly appreciated. I hope that I will very soon be able to pay forward your kindness.  Please continue to pray for me during this trip and for the children's lives will be touched. Of course, I will be eager to share with you the events from the trip and how my life has been affected.

Thanks for being part of my missionary team!

With gratitude,

Jade Deschamps
