The following was written by Mark, a husband and father of two, after going to Africa for the first time; Mark now sits on the Board of Man Up and Go.
Man Up and Go’s mission is to decrease the fatherless population across the world by discipling men to be the spiritual leader that they were called to be in their household. That is a BIG mission but we have a BIG God! Since getting involved with Man Up and Go, my spiritual walk with Christ has grown leaps and bounds. Growing up without a father in my home, I understand the struggles that a fatherless child and a companionless mother has and the impact that not having a Godly man in the home makes. God truly aligned my passion for helping those two demographics with Man Up and Go. The fun and friendships that I have made since being a part of this mission with Man Up and Go is wonderful but the call to fulfill the Great Commission that Jesus gave us in Matthew 28:16-20 through what Man Up is doing across the world is what it is all about!
