Kassie and I truly love the ministry of Mission to Haiti. After I met Kassie about five years ago, she told me about her trips to Haiti. I asked if there was room for more people and immediately (that night!) went to my dorm room and applied to join the mission team for their next trip. It was the summer of 2004 when we went, and the experience was life-changing.
One of the best aspects of the trip -at least for me- was the opportunity to watch and learn from the directors of Mission to Haiti. A father and son: Bill Nealy, Sr. and Jr. lead Mission to Haiti. Bill, Sr. and his wife Ann began serving in Haiti nearly 30 years ago. The Nealy family is a testimony to the Biblical “how-to” of missions. They work to provide food, education, medical care, and the Gospel to people who desperately need all four.
This is why when the Lord put in on our hearts to sponsor a third-world child, Mission to Haiti was our first choice. I’m sure that there are many other excellent ministries out there, but Mission to Haiti really stood out to us. I know of no other organization where your daily dollar ($30/month) goes so far in providing for the physical and spiritural needs of a child.
We’ve stared sponsoring a boy named Dunel. He’s eight years old and the son of farmers. Because Mission to Haiti is doing its work, Dunel will have food, medicine, and a Christian education.
If you can afford a dollar a day, I would encourage you to sponsor a child with Mission to Haiti. And if you’d like to experience ministry in one of the neediest places on Earth, I’d also encourage you to apply for a mission team.
