STMs should lead us to respect the poor as image-bearers and brothers and sisters in Christ even more, not view ourselves as their rescuers. We are both utterly dependent on the healing work of Christ in our lives, without whom we are all helpless. Corbett & FIkkert
Haiti Awake is in the process of beginning a prison ministry. Teams can help with prison ministry by gathering supplies we can share with the prisoners, raising funds for beans and rice, prepping materials we will take, and potentially going into the prison with members of Haiti Awake.
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.

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 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.
Teams conduct VBS-style outreaches in a number of places.
We are always honored to partner with area churches in their on-going ministry.
