How long have you been involved with HGO? - 4 years

How did you get connected to HGO? - My connection started after the earthquake in Haiti in 2010. My husband and I were led to help build an orphanage in St. Raphael, Haiti through our connection with Ericlee and Dorina Gilmore.

Why do you have a heart for Haiti? - Going to Haiti changed my life. I remember thinking on my first trip, "Why was I born in the US and these people born here." I felt called to do my part to help lift Haitians through encouraging and supporting a work that brings Gospel centered answers and hope to Haitians.
