My Story

Hi everyone!

My name is Shannon and I am currently a registered nursing student. I graduate in December 2016 and I cannot wait to help and heal people full-time for a lifetime.

I took an interest in missionary nursing after watching a Joyce Meyer medical missions outreach sermon and quickly fell in love with the idea of helping others all around the world. I applied to the Hand of Hope medical missions outreach team and was approved to volunteer.

Cambodia will be my second medical missions outreach with Hand of Hope. It is from January 12-22. I am particularly excited about this trip because I believe there is no better way to start off the new year--helping, healing, and serving God.

It is my goal and my passion to volunteer to as many medical mission outreaches as possible, but unfortunately these trips don't always fit quite within my nursing student salary; so it is with great humility that I ask you to help me help others, and ultimately impact the lives of those less fortunate around the world. No gift is ever too small and I'd like to thank you in advance for all your consideration. All your donations will go directly towards flight, hotel, food, ground transportation, interpreters, travelers insurance, and VISA expenses for myself and another volunteer who will be documenting the whole journey so that I may share it with you all once I return. I'm very excited and can't wait for you to see! Again, thank you in advance and feel free to ask me any questions.

Also, a tax deduction for your donation is available via Hand of Hope. If you choose this option please contact Wade at 1-800-707-7877 ext. 3213 to make a payment directly to my account and to receive necessary paperwork for tax purposes. (Ref: Shannon Griffin).
