She has a heart for kids and wants to reach out to the children of Haiti, especially after she had the opportunity to go to a mission trip to Haiti with CGOLF, along with her Mother and brother was one of a kind. She didn’t really know what poverty was until she went on this mission trip. It was devastating to meet mothers with children of all ages malnourished. She was so thankful that we were able to help some of the children and mother by giving them food, supplies, toys and many, many flip-flops. She was honored to give her own flops away to a woman at the market who had nothing on her feet and the marketplace was a dirt and rocky place. So for that, she knew that God was pleased with our mission trip and believes that God is going to do some amazing things through CGOLF and Ashlyn is excited to be a part of the organization!
