This November I will be headed to Haiti on a missions trip. I have always wanted to go on a missions trip and serve, but just never did. I believe that the Lord is saying now is the time. I had plans of going to the Dominican Republic or even Africa. Haiti was not my first choice, had it not been for the prompting from the Lord I would not be going. It was a hard pill to swallow, it lead me to pray in hopes that the prompting was a mistake or misunderstanding. Boy was I wrong. In all honesty I was scared for I had heard so many unpleasant stories about this country. But God worked things out by allowing me to speak with those that had previously been on this mission trip and had stories to share
. I am grateful for those stories because they put my mind and heart at ease. This made it clear enough for me to hear that God had already given me the answer to what I had been praying about. After that is was about speaking to those in charge, getting the application and filling it out, sending it off and attend the meetings. I meet some of those that will be traveling with me and on October 23 I will be meeting the rest of the team.
From November 14 to 26 I will be in a village in Cabaret serving the people in Haiti. In this area that I will be staying in there is a church, school and orphanage. Our team will be running the medical clinic and a pharmacy. We will also be giving out food supplies. Our time will also be spent with the children in the orphanage on the compound. God has been preparing me and I am looking forward to the life changing experience that I will get from being in a different culture and environment and the relationships I will be building while I am there.
I realize that I will not be able to pay for this trip on my own so I am asking for your help. I need your help to reach my goal of raising $1600 by October 19. Any amount that you are willing to donate would be greatly appreciated. I am also asking for your prayers for team that will be traveling with me. I have started a GoFundMe page you can check it out at Https://www.gofundme.com/2pqdfrw
