I’m so excited for the opportunity to introduce myself and to talk a little bit about the exciting things that are happening in the ACT mission department at AWAA, specifically our China program. My name is Becki Carlson and I am the new ACT China Missions Coordinator. My husband and I adopted our daughter from China in 2006, through America World, and while I was still in China, I knew that I would be back…..I wasn’t sure if I would be back to adopt again, or for another reason, but I knew in my heart that was not my last trip. God was breaking my heart for China, the orphans there, and the nannies that work so hard caring for them. Since our adoption trip God has allowed me to return to China 5 more times on mission trips, both as team member and as team leader. Now I have the privilege of working for America World and ACT missions to coordinate mission trips to China. It is our goal to send teams to orphanages that partner in adoptions with AWAA, to support these orphanages through our time, donations, and love, and to build relationships that tell these orphanages that they are important and loved. Loved by our teams, loved by AW and most importantly, loved by our God.
We have 4 trips planned so far for 2014, but we are aiming high this year, and we hope to send a total of 10 teams by the end of the year! We are getting ready for our annual ACT Leader Training in Nashville this weekend and then we hope to build our teams. Would you consider joining a team to China this year and making an eternal impact in the lives of the children we will visit and serve and love? Do you have international travel experience and would you consider leading a team to China? It is such an exciting and growing time here at ACT and we want YOU to be a part of it!
I am available and happy to answer any questions you might have about joining a team or leading a team in 2014. You can email me at Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org and I would love to talk to you about all the great things happening at ACT!
