“Better Together” – These words aren’t simply a catchy slogan. They make up one of MH4H’s core values. They are a belief system which defines how we interact with the world around us. “Better Together” says that, when your strength covers my weakness and my strengths aids your weakness, we can partner to build a stronger future. The Lutheran Church of Hope team is practicing this very value as they team up with several national and international companies and ministries to serve the future of Haiti.

Today was another joyous, God-filled day in Haiti. We had 1 adventurous group wake up at 5:30am and head to the Citadel in Milot. Here’s some information from that group:
“We left when the stars were still out and got to learn more about the Haitian culture on the journey…. Kids walking to school in their uniforms, Moms walking to the well to draw water, etc… We stopped on the side of the road for breakfast of warm bread, hard boiled eggs, coconut water, and sweet coffee. Many Haitians took care of us during the climb up to the Citadel and kept offering horse rides to us when we appeared tired. Getting a tour of the palace and citadel ruins was eye-opening. We couldn’t believe how big it was and how many slaves gave their lives to build this fortress on the mountain. The best part of the day was watching Christi, our leader at MH4H, interact with the Beautiful Haitian people.” – Misti Borgestad
