When I was much younger, my Aunt and her husband were taking a mission trip to Haiti. They greatly encouraged me to go. I was living a pretty selfish life at the time and really didn't want to sacrifice anything in order to travel to a third world country to help people. You know, there are people right here in Indiana who need help. Turns out, I wasn't helping these people either. Self-centered at its finest.
Ever since then, I have often wondered what it would have been like to actually go to Haiti. Give help to people who desperately need it. What plans could God have in store for me if I were to go there and serve? What would it be like to be a missionary?
Now we attend a church that has a partnership with a mission in Haiti. It is a medical clinic, orphanage and Christian school. And you guessed it, my heart's desire is to go on a mission trip to the Three Angels Children's Relief.
