School: Marshall University (Women's Basketball Manager)
" I'm definitely excited to be leading a group this year. After going on a mission trip last summer with MOAM to Kenya, my whole life has changed. I look forward to all of God's blessings in each and every day. I can honestly say that my relationship has grown with God in extreme measures in one year. I'm super excited to meet around 100 new kids in Malawi and teach them a little more about sports and our Heavenly Father. I know God has a purpose for this trip and I'm so excited to see what will unfold once we arrive. Please keep my group and I in your thoughts and prayers as we continue to do some final preparations for our trip in just a week and a half!"

" I'm very excited for this trip because my entire life from an early age I've loved volunteering and helping out with various community service and volunteer experiences. I've never been involved with something to be able to reach as far as Africa, so I consider this a great opportunity to reach a broader range of people and to spread the word and love of God! My experience as an EQ manager has required me to learn effectively communicate with my coworkers so that we can complete tasks and projects without delay and sometimes in high pressure situations and also in traveling with teams I am used to packing up and operating in new environments and stadiums when we play on the road! So hopefully some of the same practices and techniques we use to adjust on the move can be channeled into our trip and experience with MOAM!"

" I am most excited to see how God will be working in the kids during our three weeks there and how they will grow athletically, in their character, and most importantly in their relationship with God. From being a manager, one thing I have learned is the importance of consistency so I am praying that God will help me and give me the energy when I am worn out to be consistent in loving and serving the kids wherever I am with them."
Name: Donald Roundtree
School: Texas A&M University Football
" I am excited to serve the children of the Rafiki Village while giving them the knowledge of American sports. My manager experience has taught me how to serve others selflessly and give me a good knowledge of sports. I hope that this translates to my time in Malawi."
