John Kimsey: 

Board Member, President, Treasurer and Uganda Director


 “My name is John Kimsey and I volunteer for Grace Giving International. I am a husband of a beautiful wife, father of four wonderful children, full-time employee at a “real” job, and a son of the Most High God. I believe it is my duty to follow God’s calling in my life and even though it can be hard to discern what that calling is, I firmly believe He has called me to support the Holy Spirit’s work in Uganda. I volunteer my time, talents, and treasures with GGI because I wish to share the Gospel of Christ with others, to follow the Lord’s command to help those, to demonstrate the love of Christ through my actions, and to make a difference in the lives of others. All of these things I’m called to do I can through GGI. As the Country Director for Uganda, it is my privilege to raise the needed financial support to enable the local church to serve their community, share the gospel of Christ, and live out our brotherly faith in Jesus.”

Karla Darcy: 

Board Member, Secretary and Haiti Director

"I'll serve you any way you like Lord, just tell me what to do!" Over 12 years ago that was my prayer and God answered with adoption. My husband and I adopted a child from Haiti and fell in love with the country. We have continued to stay connected, and build relationships. It is our heart to minister to those in need - widows, orphans, the poor and the oppressed. GGI's ministry in Haiti gives hope to families by sending their children to school and encouraging/teaching them to self sustain. We get to be the hands and feet of Jesus. It is a beautiful thing to be a part of!
