About a year and a half ago the Lord awoke in me a heart for Haiti. I prayed and prayed for Haiti for a full year. Then after much prayer, I started sponsoring a young boy through Mission of Hope. The little boy I sponsor is nine and his name is Avens! After sponsoring Avens for a few months, it wasn’t long until the Lord revealed to me it was time to visit the country that I had fallen in love with all the way from Oklahoma. Earlier this year when I had the privilege of staying at the Mission for a week I was so blessed. When I arrived in Haiti I was so enthralled with the country! I never imagined how much love I could have for a country that I had never even been to. It was unreal to me when I stepped off of the plane in Port Au Prince and my heart literally began to race. I had an amazing week at the Mission and at the end of the week a couple people mentioned to me about applying for an Internship. Needless to say, I got the Internship! This fund is to help send me to Haiti to live for 3 months. The love I have for the people of Haiti is a love that is not my own. Not only do I have a heart for Haiti but I have a heart for serving and for Jesus. The desire I have in my heart to build relationships, love God’s people, and show them Christ is in my heart for a very special purpose and reason. Anything you are able to give helps me reach my goal!! Your support is greatly appreciated.
