Pooshups! Pooshups! Pooshups!

Overall a great day to spread the word of Christ with others and play soccer with the Haitians. The soccer camps went great today and we hope they continue to be great. The team saw some very good players as well as some tough and courageous plays. We played some very exiting and physical games today and got beat, but it was very close and fun. The team had to do many…

Soccer Camp: Day One

Hello from Haiti! Let me start by saying that we are all healthy and safe after our first workday. We’ve had a few tummy-aches here and there (which are being well-managed thanks to some antibiotics and Tums), but rest assured that the team is doing wonderfully. We started the day with breakfast and devotionals, and were on our way to Leogon (the village we were to serve)…

Worship in Spirit & In Truth

“God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24 No one on this team speaks Haitian Creole, at least, not more than a couple key phrases.

It was a great blessing to see other Haiti mission teams as we walked through the Miami airport as we are all the hands and feet of Christ. We are…

What a day…

Hi everyone – this is Kirsten Today was an amazing day.   I have to admit, a few of us were saddened by not being able to paint on Tuesday.   We worked hard to build relationships with the Haitians on Monday and felt we let them down by not going back yesterday (breaking our commitment).       God had other plans for us on Tuesday which…
