By Jenelle

I cannot believe the Lord is sending me to Haiti! I am beyond excited to go do my best to show Christ’s love to these Haitian children. This trip that I am taking with Jessica over Christmas vacation is approaching so quickly! I feel like it was just yesterday that Jess brought up the possibility! Going to Haiti is not something I ever pictured myself doing, but I am so excited to see what God has in store for me while I am there. I have been praying daily for safety and that the Lord would use me in great ways to reach those I will be in contact with throughout the trip. I have also been praying that the Lord would use this trip to draw me closer to him.
When Jess and I first started planning this trip I was scared about all the typical things that one might be scared about when traveling overseas to an unfamiliar area, but as time has passed the Lord has given me a true peace about everything. He has taken away fear and worry and replaced it with excitement and anticipation to see what He has planned for me. I believe that the Lord is in complete control over every element of this trip and I have faith that He will take care of Jess and me as we try our best to serve him.
In all honesty, I do not know a whole lot about Haiti, but I am very excited to learn all about this culture as I do my best to serve God’s children in any way I can. What an amazing opportunity the Lord has given me! Please keep praying that Jess and I would stay safe and be open to anything the Lord is trying to show us on this trip. Much Joy!
