Donna Boone

Donna, known as "Tia Donna" to the children at Josiah's House, first visited the Dominican Republic on a mission trip before Josiah's House was even finished. Her heart was immediately wrecked and changed in a positive way when she experienced the culture and the beautiful people here.  She knew she wanted to return any chance she could and has returned year after year bringing in teams to serve at Josiah's House and in the villages. Josiah's House holds a special meaning and place in her heart and each child that has come to live here has touched her heart in a special way. Her hope and dream for these children first and foremost is they would understand the love God has for them and come to know Him in a personal way.
