The Story

We are the Camps--Jeff, Jody, & Brody. We have an awesome and life-changing opportunity to go to Haiti to serve on a short-term mission trip to the Hands & Feet Children's Village. To be totally honest, the part of the trip that we are the most excited about is having the opportunity to talk to and hug our sponsored 'son', Jeziman.  We are able to interact with him now on a regular basis through pictures in our special "Family Room" on Facebook.  Through this trip, we will get to see him and interact with him face-to-face in his world!  And THAT is going to make this an AMAZING experience!  We will be joining a group of Child Sponsors that will have the opportunity to help the Jacmel campus prepare for their Christmas Celebration. This trip is designed to allow us to be able to serve the children and staff in the Children's Village.  We will also gain better awareness of the country of Haiti.  We will be serving in their homes, churches, schools, and their community.  

Our family strives everyday to BE the CHURCH by being the HANDS and FEET of Jesus wherever we are.  Whether we are at home, work, school, in our community, or with our church family, we try to radiate God's love through all that we do and say.  We have tried hard to serve those near us with our time and talents and serve those far away with our prayers and financial support.  We have seen many times that if we are willing and open, God will lead us to where He sees we can serve Him and those He loves the best.  Through much prayer we feel He is leading the three of us to go on this trip.  

This trip will cost us around $4,000.  These funds are estimated to cover the bulk of our travels and is due by October 14th.  We are reaching out to you to ask you to join us in prayer and in finances.  No amount of either is too small and will be greatly appreciated.  In addition to this donation page, we will also be selling t-shirts that express the mission of both our family and this ministry.  We will also be serving a Sunday lunch sometime soon at our church.  We are so excited to share this experience with all of you and plan on keeping you updated through this page, Facebook, and possibly a family blog of our journey.  It is our hope that through sharing our experience with you, we can help gain a greater awareness of the HANDS and FEET Project in Haiti and hopefully encourage others to sponsor one of their amazing children.

We are blown away that in only 13 days we have reached our goal!  We are so very appreciative for EVERY donation of EVERY amount.  We are thankful for EVERY prayer spoken on our behalf.  It's because of all you've done that we will get to serve and experience a life-changing trip.  

All the extra donations that will be given will go towards us buying special items to bless and help the staff and children at Hands & Feet. 

We are selling special t-shirts that help us and others remember that we are to BE the CHURCH and we can do that by being the HANDS and FEET of Jesus wherever we are.  We need to be striving to radiate God's love through all that we say and do.

(See the pictures we added for an example of what the shirts look like.)

We wanted to invite anyone who lives close enough to a lunch we will be serving at CROSSROADS this Sunday to help raise funds for our trip.  We will be having burgers, hot dogs, pulled pork, chips, homemade desserts and drinks.  We will start serving after our service is over(around 11:30). You are more than welcome to just stop by for something to eat or you are welcome to join us for our service at 10:00. All donations from this lunch will help with the cost of our traveling expenses.  I have added a picture of our flyer on our page.

Our hearts have been overflowing with the amount of support you all have given us both financially and through prayer.  We daily feel your prayers and see the results of them as we continue to make plans for our trip. The encouragement you have given us through comments on this page and through texts, emails, Facebook, and conversations has been amazing!

The past four days have been full of GREAT surprises! Monday, our daughter Briley sent an email to her principal and teachers asking them if they would support us on our trip by buying candy bars she put in the workrooms at her school. She has already paid for her boxes and is now making profit to help Brody pay for his new passport. On Tuesday, Jeff, Bro, and I each received our Hands and Feet Project t-shirts and mission trip books in the mail. Bro was so excited that he wore his shirt the next day to school and Jody has patiently been waiting to wear hers on Friday.  Jeff was so interested in all the details of the trip that he has been carrying his Haiti book with him at school and reading it in his spare time. Jeff worked an unexpected side job over the weekend that provided the funds for the hotel room we will need in Florida the night before we leave for our big trip. On Wednesday night, Jeziman’s teacher posted pictures of him and his classmates on their first day of Kindergarten. Jody was brought to tears knowing that in less than 100 days she will be in their classroom reading books and doing activities with them.

We have posted new pictures and a new video for you to view. The video is about the Children’s Village in Jacamel where we will be visiting. We thought it would be a great way to show you more about what the Hands and Feet Project is doing and what we will be experiencing while in Haiti.

We want to thank you again for your encouragement, prayers, and financial support. We ask that you would please help us spread the word through hitting the ‘share’ button on this page or ‘sharing’ our post through Facebook. The more people we reach, the more awareness that is gained about the Hands and Feet Project in Haiti. Also, make sure you sign up for email updates on our page so we can share our fundraising events and updates about how we are doing towards reaching our goal. Every donation, regardless of the amount, is a blessing and gets us closer to our goal.
