Where It All Began
In 2017, Ashley and Kelly were providing music at a Kansas women’s retreat. The speaker was a missionary to Liberia. Hearing the needs of this poverty-stricken country left an imprint on Kelly’s heart.
In 2018, the opportunity came for Kelly to plan a trip to Liberia to see the work that missionary was doing. In March 2019, she and a team of four other women went and experienced the destruction that a vicious civil war caused, leaving more than 300,000 children orphaned and abandoned. While in Liberia, Kelly shared the burden she was feeling and the seed being cultivated in her heart for future orphan ministry, with Jim.
