I’ve had a lot of people asking lately what my future will look like with Haiti. So….. drumroll pleaseeeee…… To be honest, I don’t know. Ha! What I do know is that God knows. He knows every step and I am committed to walking straight into what He has. I figured I would write a quick blog post though and let you know what my next steps are.
This June I’ll be heading over to Jacmel, Haiti for 10 days with my church. This may be my last trip with them, but I’m super excited about going. While there, we’ll be building water filters, hosting VBS in local communities, and putting on a youth rally at night for the teenagers of the church/community. I’m stoked to be able to see some of the sweet Haitian friends I’ve made relationships with over the past year.
I’ll also be heading over there in August with my dear friend Shannon. Shannon and her sweet family live in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti right now as missionaries. I’ll be working with them to minister directly to Haitians with a huge focus on community. I will also begin to homeschool her precious daughter. How long will I be there? What a great question :) I actually don’t know. The overall plan is to eventually stay long-term, but I am not sure how long this trip will be.
I know this is a pretty vague “plan”, but to be honest, we’re leaving it up to God. He knows exactly how long I am supposed to be there and what I will do. There is a lot that can’t be shared publicly quite yet, but if you do want more details on my time there in August and the long-term plans, please do not hesitate to send me an email. I would be happy to share with you whatever I can!
I am writing this blog post to ask for your prayer and support. That you would be praying for direction, provision, and the peace of God that passes all understanding.
I do have a good amount of money to make. (If you want specifics, definitely feel free to email me). If you do feel led to support me financially, here are a few ways you can do that…
1. Buy a Headband or a print. I am making and selling headbands (like the one below) to raise support as long as selling prints and notecards of some photos I took while in Haiti. Head on over here to my store now to shop around.
3. Book a mini-session. I will announce more details this week, but mark your calendar for Sunday, April 29th. For $200, you will get a 35 minute session along with 20 digital files from your session. There are only 6 spots available, so make sure to grab your spot fast! All of the money will go towards funding my Haiti trips.
4. Book an Altogether Lovely session directly towards my trips. Contact me to book an Altogether Lovely session ($375) and have the funds go 100% toward my trips.
5.Donate directly. If you do feel led to give directly towards my Haiti funds, please do so through PayPal.
Overall though, please be joining me in prayer as I begin this journey. I am so excited about what is to come and couldn’t be more thankful for where God is taking me.
