  Last year I was asked if I would accompany 15 other individuals on a mission trip to Les Ceyes, Haiti to work at an orphanage. I wasn't particularly excited about it, but Jon, a fellow firefighter, was asking because the construction work that needed to be done was going to be a challenge without adequate Laborers. I told him I'd be willing to go if I could workout the arrangements. Well, it worked out. The projects that were completed on the 2013 Haiti trip were no less than amazing. We installed an electric well so that the children would not have to haul water by buckets to the roof of the orphanage. We also constructed a swing set and club house for the children, WOW, out of 40 children, only 7 had even seen a swing before, much less used one. We also completed some bunk beds from the previous year’s project (Some of the children had to sleep on the floor). We were able to complete every project we had planned plus some that popped up while we were there, and there was plenty of time to spend with the children, having VBS, playing soccer and Frisbee. I still can't figure out how there was time to get it all done! The experience was extremely over whelming, The children's faces lit-up the second they saw us, there was singing, hugging, and hand holding from the minute we arrived until the children followed us down the road on the last day. It impacted my outlook on life greatly, those children were so in need, and I had so much to give (though I had never realized it). So this year I was convinced that my wife and I should return to Haiti to offer whatever we may to these beautiful children. We will be departing in April, the funds needed for our trip are $1500 x 2 so I offering each of you the opportunity to affect a child’s life, it takes so little to make a huge difference it these children's future, join with us and Hope Church in "doing for the least of these." Thanks, Michael Ozment
