Member Spotlights is a way to introduce the Mocha Club community to one another and to share our individual stories that brought us to support Africa together.
The phrase “I need frica more than Africa needs me” became more tangible over thlast two years. I lived on the M/V Africa Mercy, a non-profit hospital ship that provides free surgeries for some of the world’s poorest nations. But while living in Africa, it was not the poverty that impacted me most- it was the strength, the joy and the determination to press on that inspired me. I need Africa to remind me that it is more about what we have on the inside- our God-given strength- than any material possession that will allow us to achieve big dreams.
