Welcome to My Personal Page
For those of you who do not know me personally, my name is Zak Pedersen, and I am a second-year, full-time MBA Candidate at the University of Notre Dame Mendoza College of Business.
In getting to know my cohort last year, I became close friends with fellow MBA, Jim Hiltz. In getting to know Jim's story, I learned about his family's tradition of participating in a home build in conjunction with The Blessed Sacrament Parish of Northern Kentucky and the Mustard Seed Communities in Jamaica. I immediately expressed interest in being a part of the next mission trip, and recently learned that there were openings on the team - I couldn't be more excited!
Our goal is to serve the children by sharing our love and companionship, and completing work projects to improve the quality of life for residents. Donations to support our efforts are greatly appreciated! Your gift will directly support the children of Mustard Seed Communities. The funds I am raising will cover the supplies for our build, the sustained care for the children, and the costs of my time onsite with the service team.
Thank you in advance for supporting my service efforts, and helping this tremendously impactful cause!
in 1978, Mustard Seed Communities (MSC) now cares for over 600 children
throughout Jamaica, Nicaragua, Dominican Republic and Zimbabwe. MSC's
mission is to uplift and care for the world's most vulnerable
populations including children with disabilities and children affected
by HIV/AIDS who have been abandoned, teenage mothers and urban families
living in severe poverty. MSC aims to improve the economic, social and spiritual conditions in all of the communities that we serve.
With over 900 mission volunteers traveling annually, the mission program is a cornerstone of our organization. Mission volunteers bring faith and love to the children we serve. With their help and the generosity of our many supporters, MSC is able to fulfill our mission of caring for the most vulnerable and ensure that no child is ever abandoned twice.
