As many of you probably already know, I have a passion for the people and the country of Haiti. I have now been on twelve short-term mission trips to Haiti with Berean Baptist Church. When I first went in 8th grade, it became a desire of mine to serve in a greater capacity. Well, this summer, I finally have that opportunity. I will be traveling to Haiti by myself in mid-May and staying there for ten weeks.
During this time, I will be working with Pastor Jephthe Lucien and Jerusalem Baptist Mission (jbmhaiti.org). My main purpose will be to travel around the country of Haiti, visiting the churches and schools of Jerusalem Baptist Mission. I will be meeting the pastors and leaders of these churches and schools and writing up a summary of each place. These summaries will be used for a newsletter that JBM will be publishing and to plan future trips and work projects for missions groups. In addition, I will also be teaching at a Tech Learning Center that Pastor Jephthe has in Pignon. I will be teaching students how to use an iPad in depth. There are also a few other miscellaneous things that I will be doing for Pastor Jephthe and JBM.
For this trip, I am seeking to raise funds to help pay for transportation, room and board, a translator, supplies and materials to help teach and document, and other unforeseen costs that may arise while down there. Also, in the past, the summer is when I have worked full-time to pay for my schooling. This summer, I will not be working full-time because I will not be home. Therefore, I am intending to use whatever money I have leftover from this summer to help pay for my schooling next year.
I very much appreciate your prayers and support for my trip. This will be a stretch for me, but I am excited about what God has in store for me while there!
