Preparing to Go

We have booked our flights to Haiti for spring break, and we are so excited to finally be returning. On this trip we will probably get to work on our house as well as help build some of the Haitian houses in the area. This is so exciting! There are three people in particular that I cannot wait to hug: Vladimir, our interpreter, Da-Da, the beautiful lady that runs the orphanage nearby, and Maturim, the pastor who helps with the mission teams there working. I have missed these three so very much. God uses them mightily in this whole project. They are such a blessing to us!!!

As I tell our story to people all over the place, I often hear them say that they would love to go over to Haiti on a mission trip as well.  I can identify with this feeling because for so long I wanted to go on a mission trip, but I just didn’t know how to get plugged into one. First you must realize that God does not call everyone to go. If you have a desire to go, God has probably put that desire in your heart for a reason. So, the first thing to do is say, “Yes!” Then the next step is to know when one is taking place and who to contact to get plugged into it. So, here ya go!! Below is a list of future mission trips with But God Ministries to Haiti that have space available. I will also include the name and email address of our dear friend Barbara Gladney. She is the coordinator for the trips. Just contact her to see if there is still room available and she will get you started on filling out the paper work. It’s really not hard to do at all. Look at the trips listed below. Those that say OPEN TRIP mean there is probably still space. Check the dates and give Barbara a call or email!
