Haiti Mission Trip: Pre-Trip

Haiti Mission Trip: Pre-Trip

In 2010, an earthquake struck the capital of Haiti, Port-Au-Prince. This killed 250,000 people, injured 300,000 more, and left 1.5 million people homeless. To a country that was already considered third-world, this was surely a death blow. Needless to say, Haiti needs our help. On December 28th, 2014 a team of 15 went on a mission trip to Haiti. For 11 of us (including myself), this was our first mission trip to Haiti. For the other 4, this trip...

Haiti Mission Trip: Day 1

This was the big day! We had planned to meet up at the church at 1:00 in the afternoon. About 10 minutes from leaving the house for the Nashville airport, my mom and I get a call.

After an hour or so, my mom, Ken Stallons, and myself decided to hand out some toys. We worked through two interpreters, Joseph...

Haiti Mission Trip: Day 3

We have all heard about breakfast in bed, right? Personally, I’ve never had one. When I woke up on this day, I was greeted with prayer in bed! After this, knew that no matter how things went, God’s will would be done. He gave me peace. At about 9 o’clock, most of us were in one of the 2 trucks ready to make the trip up to Mount Pestel. (Because of the road conditions, we had to leave the van at the mission house, and make 2 trips with the...

Haiti Mission Trip: Post-trip

Haiti Mission Trip: Post-trip

    For me, this whole process was filled with times where I doubted God, or was worried about something, and he came through. He taught me this lesson at the beginning with fundraising, in the middle with my safety on the street, and at the end with the animals. We serve the One, true God who has power over everything. All we have to do is trust that his plan will be carried out, and our hearts will find peace.     To recap,...
