Sometimes an experience is so powerful it will change your life forever. That is exactly what happened to Mark Pankratz on a humanitarian trip to India. From the moment he stepped off the plane, he was struck by the amount of poverty he saw. Some children were kneeling in mud puddles trying to bathe, others were picking through the piles of trash hoping to find something to eat; most didn’t even have any shoes to wear. Mark knew he couldn’t walk away from this experience without making a difference in their lives.
In that Bombay slum, Mark had an epiphany. To this day, he continues to make time for his humanitarian work all across the globe. Backed by his church, he is committed to spreading a bit of joy, feeding the poor, and helping construct orphanages in the hopes of making a brighter future for the children.
