Souls on Fire Tour: Wade McGaghey

$250.00 of $1,000.00 raised
Hi there.
 
My name is Wade McGaghey. I  am participating in the Souls on Fire Tour in Nicaragua November 11-22 2018. 
 
I am writing this on my deck, on a beautiful sunny day in the Okanagan.
Recently, through a friend of mine, I was presented with an idea... More like an opportunity. I was asked to join a group of like-minded people, who are preparing for an adventure. An opportunity to give, and to take away a life changing experience.
 
We live in a beautiful country with everything to offer, that we take for granted every day. Safe homes, good jobs, safe streets, and so much more.
 
This is not the case in Nicaragua, where struggles are far more plentiful than we can imagine. Poverty is widespread, and even things like running a tap to get a glass of water is not the norm. 
 
I have been offered a spot on a team of people who are sharing a chance to change the life of a family... To build a safe home, to learn a culture, and experience things from their point of view.
 
I want to go and experience, and learn all I can. 
 
I am asking for your help in raising funds to give a new start, to make a difference, to change, and grow.... 
 
"The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively"
 
Thank you very much
 
Wade

Women's Cooperative Home Building Projects

Nicaragua has one of the highest housing deficits in Central America with over 78% of the population living in inadequate homes or are homeless. Lack of adequate housing causes families to live with a constant burden of uncertainty, stress and fear. Safe and decent shelter provides an opportunity for families to break generational cycles of poverty and build better, healthier, and more stable lives.

Speroway is raising funds to support the relocation and safe and adequate housing for ten low-income families. Through your gift you will be helping to support these ten women and their children who are apart of the Women's Faith and Hope Cooperative in the community of Jiquilillo.
