Why I chose to Go Near 
by Go Near Board member Linda Neaves

“I met Melody Taylor when I taught at Little Rock Christian Academy and received emails from her about Go Near Ministry. This interested me because I care deeply about children who are suffering, hungry, orphans and children living on the street. One day, the Lord spoke to me and reminded me that by giving to Go Near Ministry, I would know first hand about helping widows and orphans. The ministry takes young people, malnly students, to go on mission trips to Kenya during their breaks to serve the widow, orphan, prisoner and poor. I heard testimonies of those who went and heard how it changes their lives forever, as well as the children they visit. Both are touched by our LORD forever. It was very inspiring to know personally the woman who founded this ministry and hear testimonies of lives being changed by the Lord Jesus Christ.” In His Service and love, Linda Neaves”
