Last year on October 5th, I made my first trip to the Cambry Orphanage in Les Cayes, Haiti.  My life has not been the same since!

Day to day, I develop solar energy projects.  When I agreed to go on the first trip, I thought I was assiting the Give Hope Global team identify possible ways to use solar on future trips.  Little did I realize, God was using my "yes" without knowing what to expect to provide an opportunity to do something even greater.

On that trip, our team constructed a solar powered fish and vegetable system that will provide 600 lbs of fish and 1200 lbs of veggies for the children every 7 months!  But the system is complex and could not be completed in a single week.

On the flight home, I knew God wanted me to go back to finish what He started.  But the return trip in January was already full.  On December 3rd, I received a phone call that a team member had to drop out last minute!  God worked it out so that I could return to finish the work!!

Our team will be returning to Haiti on January 11th for a week.  I have already raised $1000 and am looking for people who believe in me, who believe in the work we are doing to come alongside me to help make the trip possible.  I cannot wait to return, and I treasure those of you willing to help.

The system we are installing is the first of 7 for the orphanage and a vision of how to change the culture in SW Haiti!  We desire to teach the orphans to be farmers, to provide for themselves through the hope and change that our work will allow.The morning we left - coming home but there's still work to do!
