Children! They are our future.


Imagine if you had an opportunity to assist in a small way, to help break the cycle of poverty by sharing the gospel through a ministry dedicated to caring for vulnerable children and their families. To help them move from generational cycles of poverty to become leaders in their communities. To help empower the next generation.

Hi, my name is Doina. Throughout my life, I have had the privilege to serve others in several capacities – in retail settings, by supporting donors selecting memorials to remember loved-ones, and as a volunteer at a public school reading program. Whether it was at my church or my place of work – the ability to serve and engage with others is a huge passion of mine.


When the opportunity was announced to travel to Nicaragua with a seven member team from Forward Church to assist at Haven Heart Ministry, my heart replied, “Lord, you are calling me to serve!” Haven Heart Ministry is an amazing God focused organization dedicated to work with and care for vulnerable children and their families in a challenging environment. We will have the opportunity to engage with children at camp, provide life skills training for youth and mentorship programs.


In order to do this, I humbly ask for your prayers and financial support. Firstly, we ask for your prayers of encouragement for our team, that God will work through us in a capacity to serve Him. Secondly, we humbly ask for your financial support to provide the resources necessary to facilitate our activities. The approximate cost of the trip is $2,500. Any contribution is a big gift! Your help would be a blessing to our team and the children we are going to serve – to give them hope and a future with purpose.
Thank you!
