Heading to Haiti

I’m going to Haiti on October 12!  This will be my first trip with One Mission Society.

OMS has been serving in Haiti for over 50 years!  During this trip, I’ll be visiting different ministries to write about what God is doing there, as well as serving alongside a team from Columbus, Indiana, who will be working with Radio 4VEH, a radio evangelism ministry of OMS.

I’m so thankful that it is working out to visit these different ministries, and I can’t wait to get a first hand look at what God is doing in Haiti!  A couple of weeks ago, I was asked to start serving as a liaison for Starfish Kids, which is One Mission Society’s child sponsorship program in Haiti.   Basically, I’ll be a contact at Headquarters and a go-between for the Starfish Kids coordinator, Jane, who lives in Haiti, and whoever needs information here.  This trip to Haiti will be a great opportunity to see this program in action and visit one of the schools where Starfish Kids is sponsoring children.

OMS has also just launched a project called Homes for Haiti, which is providing permanent homes for some of the families who lost their homes during the January 2010 earthquake.  Click here to read more about this project or see a video with the family who received the first home.  I’m so excited- it looks like it will work out for me to visit this area and see the Homes for Haiti project firsthand.

While in Haiti, I’ll also be learning more about the Bethesda Medical Clinic and Emmaus Biblical Seminary!  I can’t wait to share with you as I learn more :)

I really appreciate your prayers as I’m getting ready to leave Tuesday!  Thank you for your support and encouragement!
