This month, we had the pleasure of interviewing Ms. Jo. She is the executive director of Natasha’s Mission. Soon, Natasha’s Mission is putting on the first ever Girls On A Mission Summit. She gave Th!nk the opportunity to be apart of this summit. If you sign up, they email you a video once a day with a 20 minute video link of an interview of a different speaker. Their website is www.NatashasMission.com.
Th!nk: Tell us about Natasha’s Mission.
Ms. Jo: Natasha’s Mission of Truth(NMT) is a non-profit organization established in honor of Natasha Masaitis to honor her life and perpetuate her legacy … Natasha loved others before herself, considered being a mother as a gift and a privilege. Wherever the job of her husband, US Marine Corp. Capt. Aaron Masaitis, placed their family on the globe, Natasha found a way to help teen girls be more, learn to see themselves as valuable and discover the love of the Lord inspite of their daily challenges.
NMT’s mission is to provide education and funding for teenage girls to serve God in missions and service to others. “Natasha’s Girls” serve on all projects locally, domestically, and internationally. Our job is to equip them, empower them , and release them as world-changers!
Th!nk: Natasha’s Missions is going to be putting on the first ever Girl’s on a Mission Summit. Tell us about the Summit. What is its purpose? Who is it for? When is it?
Ms. Jo: The mission of this very exciting inaugural event is to empower the lives of teenage girls and those that support/lead them by giving them practical tools they need to strengthen their walk with God and become world-changers! Experts from around the US are being interviewed to share how they have empowered the youth in their life to seek and serve and provide encouragement for those watching.
We have brought in speakers from around the nation to bring fresh encouragement to teens, parents, and those who lead them. The online event begins July 14, 2014 and runs through July 23, 2014 (pending any expert additions).
