My Story

Hi!  We are Adam, Kim and Zoë Braud and we are moving to Africa!  About 3 years ago, God began speaking to our hearts, as well as our pastors hearts, about the possibility of moving to Africa to work with Healing Place Church Swaziland ( 


We have been on staff at Healing Place Church in Baton Rouge, LA for 6 years.  Our church’s mandate is to be a healing place for a hurting world and what better place to do that than a country torn apart by HIV/AIDS and poverty.  Our Pastors, Dino & DeLynn Rizzo, have long had a heart for Africa and have a close relationship with Children’s Cup, an organization that feeds, educates and cares for thousands of children every day through Care Points.  We will be working closely with Children’s Cup as HPC Swazi grows and reaches the surrounding communities.


Our hearts are bursting with excitement at this new chapter our family is getting ready to embark on.  God has placed Africa and its people in our hearts.  Will you pray for us?  This is a huge step of faith and we can’t do it without you!


Thank you for partnering with us in our effort to change lives for the Kingdom of God.  All funds will be going to monthly living expenses and initial start up costs.  All donations no matter the amount are very much appreciated. 


Thank you for your heart of generosity!!!
