From Houston to Haiti - Spring Break 2016
Organized by: Ashley Read
EVENT DATE Mar 11, 2016
On March 11th I will begin the journey from Houston to Haiti...
While in Haiti I will be partnering with a good friend of mine (also named Ashley!) and an organization called Mission of Hope (MOH) to serve the people of Haiti. MOH is an organization that has worked for over 17 years in Haiti giving orphans a home, spreading the gospel, and providing food, medicine, water, and education to the people of Haiti. We will be going as the hands and feet of Jesus and I am thrilled to go on this next adventure with Him.
While in Haiti we will:
- Work in an orphanage that houses over 60 children
- Build homes for those displaced by the earthquake
- Spend time educating villages on safe food and water practices
- Share Jesus with those who have never heard or received Him
I am specifically excited for an opportunity to love on the children of Haiti. Currently there are over 400,000 children in Haiti without parents and over 17,000 children that will never have the opportunity to receive an education due to lack of schools and finances. Additionally, 1 out of 5 children will not make it beyond age 5. These statistics are heartbreaking. I am praying God will be able to use my passion and gifts for serving and teaching children to make even a small impact on this area of need.
Thank you so much for visiting this page and offering your support. I appreciate it beyond anything I could put into words!
*Any donations will be used soley for this mission trip and the MOH organization.
