Dell Mitchell

In 2005, Dell had the opportunity to teach English in Guangzhou, China, for 5 years. While there he lived well, became fluent in Cantonese Chinese, had great experiences teaching kids and met some amazing people that developed into friendships that he will cherish for a lifetime. What Dell loved most about being overseas, was his freedom to travel in his spare time. Those places are: various cities in China, Hong Kong, Macau, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Philippines and Taiwan. It was those places that God allowed Dell to see his calling to the ministry in real-time. Read the full story here.

Nikki Bhones

My name is Nikki Bhones. I’m originally from Saginaw, Michigan but moved to Madison, AL. in 1995. I graduated from AAMU, and the U of Alabama-Tuscaloosa in 2005 with a MS in Communicative Sciences and Disorders. My passion in life has always been to serve others, so my career as a speech language pathologist fit perfectly. I began working with Visible Hope in the fall of 2016. I decided to work with Visible Hope simply because I wanted to work with an organization that stood behind its mission and purpose: to help others and improve their quality of life. Visible Hope has helped so many people in the Huntsville/Madison County areas, and its my prayer that we continue to grow and flourish so that our impact can be felt around the world!

I have been with Visible Hope for over two years. I am an advocate for the Alzheimer’s Association fighting against Alzheimer’s. I volunteer and I’m a member of various organizations.  Before I leave my house in the mornings, I ask God to help me bless someone today, but not just today but every day through him. I ask God to use me in the way he feels I need to be used. He showed me Visible Hope which is my blessing. God’s blessing comes through all of us when we feed someone who is hungry. The love that is received from a homeless person who has food for that day is my earthly reward. To be able to give instead of receiving is the greatest gift of all. I once asked a man who was receiving his plate of food, when is it a good day for him.  With gratitude on his face, he replied, when I can eat.

Position: Secretary, Cook

 I am Silka Hampton, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I have been blessed to be a part of Visible Hope and volunteering because it helps others to know that there are people out there that cares. Showing compassion and giving kindness can really uplift a person when they’re experiencing a rough time in life. It conveys a sense of “Faith” and having a positive spirit which alone can act as a tremendous source in someone’s life.

Tiffany LaMeia

Why Visible Hope: For years I have had a desire to serve at a different level in the community. I wanted to give back to individuals incapable of giving back to me, I have found through serving that these individuals give me more than money can buy. Their smiling faces, encouraging words, are gifts within themselves. Visible Hope provides many with the opportunity to show the Agape kind of love!

I have always had a passion and love for people. My vision is for people to really understand God’s love and to never let anyone fall. Being able to stand and serve God’s people with Visible Hope is a wonderful experience, but a constant reminder of my own life and struggles. Who am I? I’m no better than anyone I serve. It’s by God’s grace.
