Yesterday, I discovered that a girl I have known for quite a while through college and acquaintances has decided to go on a year long mission trip to Honduras to be a part of Orphanage Emmanuel.
Leigh is the sister of one of Colby’s best friends. She just recently graduated from Auburn University with a degree in Elementary Education, so clearly she loves children.
I have always known Leigh to be such a kind person, and I’ve never heard anyone say anything negative about her. She’s really an amazing person, and her faith in God is truly extraordinary.
I encourage you to read her blog as she ventures through this mission for the next year. You can find her blog at this link. If you feel led to give Leigh words of encouragement, you can email her at leighcooper[dot]emmanuel[at]gmail[dot]com.
You can also send any snail mail or care packages to her here:
Volunteer Leigh Cooper
c/o Orphanage Emmanuel
Dr. Don Reynolds
4611 Hixson Pike
Hixson, TN 37343
From there, Dr. Reynolds will forward a container once a month to the volunteers. Please be praying for Leigh as she goes on this journey. Pray that she will be kept safe from harm and that she will make an impact on many lives while she is there.
