Project Manager for the Americas

This precious little girl could not stop smiling after being given her first Bible!

It is with exceeding joy that we introduce to you a new teammate, Lindsay Allen. As our Project Manager for the Americas, Lindsay will spend her days communicating with brothers and sisters in Christ around the world, coordinating details and providing a profound communication link between projects and World Orphans. You’re invited to get to know this incredible woman with whom we are honored to serve.

WO: What was your previous work experience and educational background?

LA: My degree is actually in vocal music education. I worked as a middle school and high school choir teacher for a few years before God called me into full-time ministry.

WO: What would others find surprising about your role?

LA: People are always surprised when I tell them I send and receive several emails in Spanish, even though I don’t know the language! Thank goodness for Google Translate!

WO: What countries have you traveled to with World Orphans?

LA: So far I have only traveled to Haiti with World Orphans, but I will hopefully be visiting our church partners in Guatemala and Nicaragua soon.

WO: Tell us about your family.

LA: I married my incredible husband Blake in July of 2010. I’m convinced he is the best husband on the planet!

WO: What are some of your favorite hobbies?

LA: Even though I no longer teach choir, singing will always be a big part of my life. I also have a food blog called Normal Cooking that has become quite popular! I love to cook and am learning a lot about food photography.

Our awesome team put our money together to provide lunch to these children in Rwanda.

Learning how to eat mangoes like the Haitians do!

On our second trip to Rwanda, it was so good to see familiar faces and laugh along with those we had met the year before.

My first trip to Haiti and the kids could not stop giggling about their pipe cleaner glasses!
