In 2018, it is my desire to go to Haiti for the second time on a mission trip. I went for the first time in November of 2017 and although I was nervously excited I was expecting God to place me where I was supposed to be. He did. Grace House in Mirebalais, Haiti, was where I landed and it was precisely where I needed to be. I would like to go back to continue the good work that they are doing. I am seeking donations for this trip. Not to cover my expenses, but to go toward Grace So Amazing Ministries. http://gracesoamazingministries.org/. If you would like to help out with any amount please make a donation here.
Here's what the donations are for: Grace Academy and Pure Haiti:
Pure Haiti - a natural skin care product line that will enable Grace House to operate and will bring income into the community. With just $5000 they can purchase a press that will extract ingredients from the local produce like mangoes, avocado and papaya, for use in the skin care they produce. Pure Haiti will also help to empower women living in marginalized circumstances by providing jobs creating beautiful products.
Grace Academy - is a small, private school in Boyer, Haiti run by Grace House that will re-open its doors in January of 2018 to serve students in preschool through 2nd grade who would not otherwise be receiving an education. In a country where approximately 1 out of every 10 students who begin first grade go on to also complete high school, and where up to 50% of third graders struggle to read with any form of fluency or comprehension, a rich, Christ centered curriculum that emphasizes literacy, imagination, and critical thinking skills offers the chance for a solid start and a firm foundation. They need approximately $1450 per month to keep the school supporting the children from Grace House and also the community.
