UPDATE: Go here for an update on our trip! http://www.liveoutworship.com/page/2/
In January 2010, more than 200,000 people died when an earthquake struck Haiti with incredible force. A few months later, my husband, Todd, stepped onto Haitian soil for the very first time. Todd and I have each made three trips to Haiti and each time, we have seen God do great things. Every moment, each relationship that is birthed and each missionary we learn from, has allowed us to see God move in incredible ways.
In February of 2017, we will be leading a team to NorthWest Haiti Christian Mission in St Louis Du Nord. Our daughter, Hannah, who has previously ministered in Guatemala will be joining us, as well as, her boyfriend, Nick. In total, we have nine team members traveling together. While in Haiti, we will work with the special needs orphanage meeting practical needs such as building walkers and assisting with physical therapy, all the while, showing love to the precious kids who live there. We plan to once again visit the Port De Paix prison where we will have the attention of over 300 men and women who are hungry to hear about Hope. The women from our team will be visiting a local brothel to pray and show love to the ladies. We will be partnering with Beyond Relief Trade School and work with the students who are learning English. New this trip, we have plans to send out a few of our team members who are medically trained into the community as a mobile medical clinic. Hannah is really excited to participate with this team as she has recently graduated as a Medical Assistant!
We hope that you will consider joining us on this journey! We need people who will commit to pray for us as we prepare for our trip. Practically, we need help to finance our trip.
