When did you first get involved with HaitiGO and what was your involvement? How are you involved now? I first became involved with HaitiGO through The Bridge Church in Fresno, California. I was serving on the Mission Board for The Bridge when the leader of a scheduled trip to Haiti had to back out on short notice. Despite my best efforts to avoid this trip, God refused to let me find a way out. I led a small group of short-term missionaries for a 10-day exposure trip to see God working in Haiti and fell in love with the people and the ministry. Upon my return home, I began helping with the bookkeeping for The Haitian Bead Project. I did this for two years before being asked to step onto the Board of Directors in 2013. I have served as secretary and am now vice-president of the Board of Directors, as well as co-Director of The Haitian Bead Project since 2014.
Why do you have a heart for Haiti? - I have a heart for Haiti because of the people that I have met while traveling there and while serving through The Haitian Bead Project. Despite the challenges of working in Haiti, the reward from seeing God’s glory on full display through a loving and faithful community of believers in Haiti has made it worth the time, effort and emotion.
