5 Minutes of My Day: No Tomorrow

It’s been such an exhausting day. Filling water, getting food for the team, purchasing items for the community, distributing donations and ministry money, leading in ministry and the list goes on. So many things clamour for my attention day to day. After helping coordinate the feeding all 87 children at the orphanage, the group goes […]

Is Haiti Dangerous?

Liar, Liar: But Isn’t Haiti Dangerous?

I am so glad that you are here reading this post. When people find out Eric and I work as Mission Coordinators for Praying Pelican in Haiti, this is typically one of the first questions they ask.

5 Minutes of My Day: Driving Along

The keys jangle and smack against the flat of my palm. Eric tosses them to me and says, “Giddy up babe. Time to pull up our boot straps and get to truckin’.” He loves to drive me nuts talking in southern expressions. It’s 4:00 am and I’m exhausted, no way I’m getting behind the wheel […]

It makes me laugh like nothing else to see those baby buns bouncing along the ocean shoreline or standing in the tub waiting for mom to start their bath. Children […]

5 Minutes of My Day: Saplings

It’s time for tree ministry with the team. Mango, lime, coconut, orange and papaya. I grab two of the largest coconut trees. They’re my favorite. We’re approaching the next home in the community and a woman about my age meets us at the gate. “Bonjou!” the team greets her with their wide-smiles and nervous laughter. It’s […]

Spring 2013 Haiti Trip Recap

Hello friends! It’s been a while since I’ve last written, so I wanted to take some time to recap our last trip down to Haiti. While summer is our biggest season for leading mission trips, we always have a handful of teams that come and serve during Spring Break. This year, Bethany and I had […]

The Power of One

Julianna is a young, beautiful, country girl hailing from Jasper, Alabama. She was on a trip earlier this year that we led during New Years (remember the video of the kids opening the gifts??) and like so many others, she fell in love with the children of Life is Hope Orphanage. During our time there, one […]
