Meet Paige. Although Paige is only 16 years old, she has lived the most fascinating and inspiring life! At the age of 10 she went on her first solo mission trip to Vanuatu for four weeks. This first mission experience through Teen Missions Internationalchanged her life forever. Four years later, Paige, her mother, sister and grandmother served in the Philippines, spending a few days in an orphanage called Gentle Hands. This experience changed Paige’s life, with her deciding that serving and helping others was her purpose in life. Since this trip to the Philippines in 2013, Paige has made 8 trips back, spending up to 5 weeks there at a time. Experiencing births and many deaths, as well as loving and caring for the children of the orphanage, Paige lives every day thinking of how she can get back to the Philippines to make a difference in these kids’ lives. She is involved in teaching the young people social and self-esteem skills, raising the toddlers and has even nursed malnourished children from near-death back to full health. Paige’s heart is filled with the cry of these disadvantaged children and with every visit back, she simply loves them and tries to show them their worth. She is a Strong Woman.
