I remember sitting on the side of the stage at my church one Sunday morning several years ago telling our Missions Director that I wanted to go to Haiti. The political and spiritual climate down there never seemed to align to create the right opportunity to go. But when the earthquakes of January 12th hit, I knew that I had to get down there to help.

On August 6th, 2010 there were 46 of us that made the trip to help the healing and rebuilding process that our church is committing to being a part of for as long as it takes.

While in Port-au-Prince we did a VBS with the children, interacted with local teens, painted an orphanage, distributed food to the poor, and did other outreach and local ministry activities. During the time leading up to, during, and after this trip I plan to log as much of the journey as possible.

It’s my goal here to allow you to be just as much a part of this mission as possible. I pray that this trip touches you and changes your life just as much as it does for those who actually went. Check this page often for the latest posts, updates, photos, and videos…
