A few weeks before we left for our summer travels we mentioned here that our Haiti Hospitality House would be growing. It has been a few months since our new housemates moved in and we are excited to introduce you to our new ministry partners! Jason, Jennifer, Cole and Callie moved to Haiti in September 2014 from Kentucky leaving their oldest son/brother Chantry who is attending college. Shortly after arriving in Haiti, baby Edyson was born and lost his mother due to complications in childbirth. The Carroll’s have been taking care of Edyson since he was four days old and also have brought Edyson’s older sister Rogerline into their care. We met this precious family through our local missionary fellowship that we travel to attend as much as possible. Through a series of events and prayer petitions made separately from both our families we are humbled by how the Lord has answered by bringing our families together to serve one another and the Haitian people.
We landed in Haiti on Sunday morning. Our missionary team came together from a few different states to serve alongside each other in the mountains of Haiti. The team had been preparing months to be ready for everything that God had prepared for them to do. This included materials for two different VBS groups, puppets to entertain and tell Bible stories that change lives. Team members brought reading glasses for an adult literacy program, shoes for all of the children at the center and enough candy to keep the kids very happy and a future dental team very busy. A person or a team should prepare thoroughly, have contingency plans and be ready for God to mess with those plans accomplishing much more than planned.
