Early in the morning on August 3rd I will be boarding a plane to travel to Haiti. I will land in Port Au Prince, then take a bus over the mountains to the city of Jacmel. With me will be a team of 17 Sr High students, 8 College students, and 3 other adults…making up a team of 29 people. We will be joined in Haiti by 2 of my former students from Omaha to make a total of 31 people going to serve the Lord by serving the people of Jacmel and surrounding areas.
We will be staying in the Baraka Church, and will be working alongside the church in connection with Praying Pelican Missions. This will be my fourth time leading a team to Haiti; third time going to work alongside the Baraka Church in Jacmel.
We will be doing a lot of Children’s Ministry, both through the church as well as at local orphanages. We will also be doing different work projects, encouraging the local body of Christ, and playing soccer games against local teams as an attraction in order to share the gospel with those in the community.
It will be a hot and tiring week, but an amazing week as well. I love seeing God move despite the language and cultural barriers, and few things get me more excited than watching the students and adults I have led to Haiti be touched by God through the people and situations we come in contact with. I have absolutely fallen in love with the country and people of Haiti, and I always look forward to going there.
I will post again after I return and share about the trip. If you would like to follow what we are doing, you can check out our online trip journal.
