“Our Hearts Are Aligned with the Same Compass”

Hi- I’m Steve and I am excited and humbled to be part of this Blackhawk GO Team to Bolivia. I am married to Leigh and have 3 kids that are now all young adults on their own life journeys. I work at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and at the Madison VA Hospital. I have been a part of prior Blackhawk outreach trips to Honduras and once previously to Bolivia. I pray that God will use our team for His purposes. We look forward to partnering with our brothers and sisters in Christ that are part of Food for the Hungry (FH), as well as community leaders in the barrios outside of Sucre. Our hope is to be a part of God’s transformation of the lives of children, families and communities. I embrace FH’s values to be ambassadors for Jesus, be relational, serve with humility and invest wisely. On our last trip, I remember one of the FH staff stating our hearts drive us to work side-by-side because we are all joyfully aligned with the same compass. As stated in Psalm 67 V4: “May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples justly and guide the nations of the earth.” God guides and we follow.
