Hi Friends, I'm Leah and I started going to Haiti in 2012 to serve at an orphanage there now I am raising money to go back to Haiti this summer not only for the third, but for the fourth time. Ever since God called me to go in 2012, I knew that this was where He wanted me and where I needed to be. This year He’s called me to go twice and I am saying “Here I am, send me.” The only downside of this is that to go twice will cost me $3,200 (not including the costs for the malaria medicine I need to have when I go and the supplies I will have to purchase to bring to the orphanage). In order to get the money I have been working a lot, collecting pop bottles, selling candy bars, and taking donations. I am currently working on putting a few fundraisers together and now I am sending out support letters. I am asking that you would pray about helping support me in getting to Haiti to be the hands and feet of Jesus. A little about the trips: My first trip is going to be with an organization called “Poured Out” ( Poured Out goes throughout the mountains and villages of Haiti where there is no clean water. They install water filtration systems in these villages and removes bacteria in the water that makes entire families so sick. We will also go to villages which previously had the water filters installed and interview and speak with these families to see how they are doing and how the filters have helped better their lives. Then I will go back to my second home, an orphanage, to love on my favorite kids. In the week that we will stay there we will be teaching a Vacation Bible school sort of thing along with math and english classes for them throughout our stay. Here is a video I put together (for one of my friends who is also raising money for this trip), it gives you an idea of what we do and the kids we stay with : The trip with Poured Out is going to cost $1,800 (for plane ticket, housing, food, filtered water, and filters that we will build) and the trip to Gradec will cost $1,400 (for the plane ticket, the food we eat, the water we drink, the electricity we use, and travel while we are in the country). How you can help: There are a lot of ways you can help me get to Haiti! The biggest are prayer and donation. Prayer is appreciated so much as I firmly believe in the power of prayer and what God can do through it. If you feel called to, you can also donate to my trip. This can happen through checks, cash, or even over the internet at my fundrazr website! ( If you decide to donate and want to donate online, you can make it anonymous or you can leave your name. Leaving your name will help me to keep you updated on my trips with pictures and things like that! You could also donate pop bottles! I am willing to drive to pick them up and take them off of your hands. All of the money would go towards my trips to Haiti. I am also willing to babysit (if you or anyone you know is interested), but I am only available Friday, Saturday, and Monday’s due to church and other work. If you would like to, you could also share my fundrazr link on your facebook page! At the link it explains what I am doing and how much money I still have to raise. Again, the link is: I am sorry this has been so long, I just felt it would be easiest to get all of the information out!! If you are interested in more information or helping me get to Haiti please let me know!! Thank you so much!
