Haiti: Sonoma Olson

Sonoma's Bio

Hello, my name is Sonoma Olson. I am a 14 year old freshmen at Cherokee Trail High School. Over the past 2 and a half years I have grown extremely close to the people at Southeast and God. I serve communion and help to gather offerings weekly during service. I also volunteer in the Beginnings nursery at the church. I believe that God has given me this passion and love for children that I do not experience with adults. Because of this, I feel a deeper connection with this missions trip by the fact that we will be going to schools and orphanages and sharing the Gospel with the children there. I know that God will provide financially through generous people that are willing to help. I ask for prayers to ready myself and the team that will be traveling to Haiti. I ask that you keep our safety in our prayers and that we are able to share the Gospel to children that have never heard of Jesus before. Thank you for taking the time to read this; I know that God will bless me tremendously.
