This year I was blessed to team up with Haiti Awake and travel to Haiti with their 1st official mission team! The opportunities they are giving the Haitian people are incredible! I can not wait to minister alongside them again. Thank you, Haiti Awake, for such a life-changing experience and allowing me to make lifelong friendships.

Children's Home Polo does a tremendous job walking alongside these children and their caregivers.  His love and support over the last year has helped them progress physically, socially, spiritually, and academically.  Teams can assist him in this calling through classes for the children, games with the children, gathering supplies they need, building new furniture for their home, and sharing life with them.

ENGLISH CLASSES Haitians are eager to learn new things - especially the English language.  In our desire to build relationships, we are promoting English classes in our home and at the children's home so that Haitians and Americans can feel comfortable in communicating with one another.

Bible Schools Bible schools can be large - at an orphanage or a church or a school.  Or Bible schools can be small - in our home or the children's home.  Mission teams are a big part of our Bible school program. Several organizations have invited us to do Bible schools at their schools, churches,  and orphanages. We are excited about visiting different locations and sharing the truth of God's Word with young hearts and minds as we continue to build relationships.
