Preparations for Haiti

Hopefully by the end of next week I'll have everything in order for the trip.  The past few days have been rather productive.  My flights are booked, and our team got together on Saturday to meet each other and make plans.  I need to get a vaccination or two and get my doctor to sign some paperwork.

We will be leaving on April 16th and we will return home on April 25th.  The city in Haiti that we will fly in to is Cap-Haitian.  The hospital that we will be working at is in Milot, which is about 12 miles south of Cap-Haitian.

I'm excited and thankful for this opportunity.  I'm thankful for a husband is supportive and not worried about fending for himself at home for a week.  I'm thankful that I was about to get the time off work, and I'm thankful that I was about to get connected with some other women and we're able to go together.  James was not in favor of me traveling alone.

If you'd like to participate in our ministry, the thing we need most are your prayers.  Pray for our safety and health and most of all, for us to faithful servants of Christ on this trip.  If you are interested in donating, you can click on the Paypal button in the left side of the page (if you are reading this on FB, you'll have to go my blog to see the button) or send me an email at journeytohaiti@gmail.com.  Donations of any amount will be greatly appreciated.


  1. Oh my gosh...you're amazing! I so greatly admire anyone doing the sort of work you're embarking upon. Many, many prayers are with you - for your health and safety!

  2. Enjoy your time in Haiti - may God use you in amazing ways!

  3. Blessings! Sounds like everything is coming together! I said a prayer for you just now that God will provide all your needs according to His glorious riches and that He would be glorified through your willingness to go!

  4. God bless you on your trip...and may you serve with joy, and see the joy that you will give to others. Wow, what an opportunity. Can't wait to hear all about the trip.

    I've been thinking about getting a passport...don't have one...but it might be a good idea in case I have to hop on a plane unexpectedly. I'm thinking that it could give God an opportunity to broaden my own horizons?
