Haiti has been on our hearts for quite some time now. God has recently revealed to us His plan for us to go there and serve. And who are we to disagree? So, we sent an email just to see what would happen. And, as all things orchestrated by The Almighty, everything fell into place.
We are so excited to be taking this journey as a family! So, what will we be doing there? We know that Gary will be providing encouragement and support to local men, Rhiana will be teaching, and the girls will be learning alongside the kids in the orphanage. And we know that we plan to show up, help where we can, and love on people.
Some people may wonder, "Do you really want to take your kids to Haiti?" While we are aware of the fact that Haiti is a 3rd world country, we are also fully confident in The Lord's protection. And, more importantly, we don't wish to hide from our children how a large part of the world actually lives.
Where your donation goes:
Besides our travel expenses and supplies, we will be paying for our housing in Haiti. We are fortunate that Maison has a guest house for missionaries and adoptive families. We are even more fortunate in that the guest house has a generator! Electricity is spotty (at best) in Haiti, and with the help of a generator, we will enjoy night-time air conditioning and wi-fi (which means we can keep you posted on what we've been doing!). * All donations we receive above the amount which covers our expenses will be donated to the orphanage. We are aware that recently, the older girls' room at Maison was improved and that they are hoping for something similar for the boys' room. We are praying to be able to help with those improvements.
