It takes a lot of preparation and dedication to accomplish big things.

Many people know that Mary Beth Winton has spent her whole life in Leavenworth, Kansas, and she does a lot for the Lansing school district, which she has attended for most of her life.

However, many people don’t know how much time she spends at Church preparing for a mission trip to Johannesburg, South Africa this summer. She attends Church services every Sunday morning and night. She also attends Bible Study on Tuesdays and Youth Group on Wednesdays.

Winton is going on the South African venture with a friend from Youth Group, Aberdean Livingstone, who has spent the past nine months preparing with her. The two will be in Johannesburg for two weeks; they’ll spend the first week working in an orphanage, and the second week will consist of different, undecided tasks in Cape Town.

“I hope to open or help in an orphanage in a foreign country,” Winton said about her plans for the future and why this trip is so important to her.

A lot is required to be able to go on a trip like this. They surpassed a series of interviews with the Elders at their church to have permission, and then they had to find a missionary to sponsor them and be in their choice country with them.

Before they leave, they are also required to read a book about a missionary and write a report on it.

Winton added, “Part of it is finding things to take that they need in South Africa,” which will all be decided on in June and might include blankets and bottled water.

All of this hard work will definitely be paid off for Mary Beth when she gets to travel across the world, spread her faith, and help children in need.

“Of course my mom is worried, but I’m excited” Winton said.
