Celebrating 10 years of making a positive difference

It is hard to believe that it has been 10 years since God led us to start the Make A Positive Difference foundation.

God gave us a dream in 2008 to equip young Christian leaders in developing countries by providing scholarships so they could continue their education at the university level.  We felt that this opportunity would give these young people the skills and knowledge they would need to make a positive difference in their communities and churches.

We began our efforts in Kosovo because of a short-term mission trip to that country.  We have continued to work with students in that country and have seen some great successes there.  In 2010, we were able to expand our support into Romania and in 2014 we expanded again into Kenya.

We are inspired every day by the things these young Christian leaders are doing with the opportunities that they have been given.

Since MAPD began, we have provided scholarship support to 39 students in three different countries.  Here are some highlights of how these students are making a positive difference in the lives of others.

  • We have students that are now teaching full time and impacting the lives of other young people, inspiring them to think bigger about what they can do with their lives.
  • We have students that are working in social work and counseling. They are impacting the lives of orphans and troubled people in their communities.
  • We have students that started their own non-profit organizations and are now providing resources for the poor in their town.
  • We have students in leadership roles in their local churches, providing positive spiritual direction for those around them.
  • We just had a young woman from Romania that graduated with her nursing degree and will be ministering to them as she cares for their health needs.

We pray that these students continue to grow their circle of influence for good and that they continue to make a positive difference in the lives of those around them.

We look forward to what God will continue to do through the foundation and through the lives of the young people that we are supporting.

We want to thank all of you that have been on this journey with us and have supported us through your prayers and your generous donations.  We hope that you will continue to walk this journey with us in the coming years with your tax-deductible donations and your prayers.
