Fours years ago, I was following blogs of two families adopting from Haiti. While I'm not exactly sure why, I was for certain invested in their journeys, smitten by their soon-to-be adopted children, and in awe of how God moves. Then? The earthquake.
I'm still not entirely sure why God originally led me to these blogs. For perspective, for a reminder of extreme oppression AND extreme love, and/or for a nudge to serve in a new and different way for me? What I do know is it's my time to go. To serve. And to love on the people of Haiti.

I'm honored to be traveling with a team from Gateway Church. And I'm excited to be working with Mission of Hope – an amazing organization that does great work to empower the people of Haiti.

In the words of MOH's president: "International aid that does not make a nation stronger is not aid, it's just a temporary fix that often leads to the need for more aid."

Coming to know and love Jesus, and the life transformation I've experienced on my journey continues to humble, stretch and motivate me daily. This is yet another powerful step in my walk.

My trip cost (travel, lodging and food) is $1,600 ($100 of which I've paid). If you feel led to support me financially and/or in prayer, I'd be very grateful. PLEASE NOTE: 1) All contributions are 100% tax-deductible, 2) All contributions beyond my goal, will go directly to MOH, and 3) If you'd prefer to write a check, please see details below.

With Love, Hope and Peace,
