Journey to Haiti
Haiti has an estimated population of almost 11 million and is the second most populated area in the Caribbean. In joining with our missionary team of two families and two single women, you will be able to learn about and participate in a variety of ministry partnerships with the Haitian people.
Relationship-building and discipleship is the primary focus of our team. We desire to empower godly leadership and stir up active faith in the hearts of those around us. There will be many opportunities to work with nationals (particularly youth) and with other missionaries throughout your stay. Time for learning culture and language will be included, as well as for devotions and prayer ministry. In general, the Haitian people are gracious and welcoming to those who show an interest in learning from them, and many are eager to practice their English skills with native speakers.
Some of the ministries that we are involved with include: A Haitian-led support group for women who have experienced trauma A sewing school Local pastor training and encouragement A community garden (currently being used by neighbors to sell produce for a profit) English language classes, clubs, and activities Sharing support and encouragement with other missionaries in the area GlobalFingerprints – ReachGlobal’s child sponsorship program Built to Last – a woodworking ministry to equip youth with practical skills and discipleship Various activities to promote youth engagement, leadership, service, and the development of technical and creative skills. Praise and worship Health checks and medical services
We are blessed to be a part of such diverse groups as we work to expand the Lord’s kingdom. Our site may be particularly suited for those skilled in areas such as drama, music, sewing, gardening, art, and teachable job skills; however, we welcome students with other areas of interest as well. Because of the make-up and availability of our team, we can only accept female interns at this time.
Please consider serving alongside us this summer. Perhaps you will gain a deeper understanding of the expanse of God’s reign, the creativity of his beauty, and the tenacity of his love as you work in a culture and a context different than your own!
Experience a quiet rural area 20 miles west of Port Au Prince, the capital of Haiti, a Caribbean country full of early 19th century landmarks that shares the island of Hispaniola.
Ministry will take place in multiple cities, as residents recover from the 2010 earthquake and Hurricane Matthew. Participate in a broad range of ministries using a holistic ministry approach as you partner with individuals and short-term teams, from North American churches and national organizations, to share the gospel while working side by side.
