Ian's Bio

Hello, my name is Ian. I am 14 years old and a freshman at Douglas County High School.  I love helping others and sharing Jesus' love. One of my favorite things to do is to play baseball.  My favorite sports teams are the Colorado Rockies and the Denver Broncos.  One day I plan to go into the Air Force pararescue division.  I love to play Xbox with my friends.

I am very excited to go to Haiti.  I have been attending Southeast Christian for four years now. Through this mission trip, I hope to grow in my faith and closer to God.
