In exactly 11 weeks, 2 days, 23 hours, and 4 minutes, we will be heading back to Haiti! (But who’s counting right??😜)
Although we’ve gone through this process about nine times now (jeez!), the excitement never really goes away. From planning dates, buying tickets, having team info and prayer meetings, right down to the day of departure, everything is an exciting step towards going back to our second home.
For me personally, one of the coolest things about going to Haiti is not only the mission trip itself, but also getting to see how God puts our team together. We’ve had teams of all different ages, from different states, and of different denominations. Even with all these differences, through prayer and fasting as a team, God breaks down the barriers and unites us all as the Body of Christ to be able to effectively share His love and His Gospel.
Since I’ve been to Haiti quite a few times, I have a pretty decent understanding of what to expect 😉. That being said, I always love watching the “newbies” experience these things for the first time. When we tell them that there are no hot showers and we explain to them what a “tropical squirrel” is, the looks on their faces are priceless 😂.
But in all seriousness, it’s amazing to watch them adapt to the Haitian culture and build relationships with the Haitian people. Along with building those relationships, they’re able to share the love of Jesus with the Haitians; that is hands down the coolest thing to watch.
Right now, we’re at the point in our process of getting the team finalized and working on getting plane tickets. So, please keep our team in your prayers! Thanks so much! God bless!

As a part-time MK (missionary “kid”) I do get to have a ” responsibility “. With almost every team that we work with in Haiti, there’s always a request to go visit the “muffin man”. Yes, we have a muffin man in Borel. Awesome, right? So, my job is to take the team to go see the muffin man and give him some business 😉.
