Why Go to Haiti?
We believe strongly in people traveling to Haiti on short-term mission trips. As a mission, we take very seriously the opportunity to introduce you to the work God is doing in the areas in which we work. We are excited to share with you the vision God has presented to us and pray you continue to be part of the solution, even after you return home. Our hope is that both you and the Haitians are blessed by your time in country.
Together, as brothers and sisters in Christ, we learn from each other and bring hope to one another. We are all the hands and feet of Christ. We trust God will work through all the planning, preparation, and prayer to make your trip a powerful experience to glorify God.
“May my heart break for the things that break God’s heart.” – Bob Pierce
