Our Next Trip
The goal of Haiti Care Mission is to share the love of Jesus with the children of Haiti through handmade items. Each hand sown item is made to help every child know that they are precious in His sight. Pinless cloth diapers, pillowcase dresses, and sleeping mats are used as a means of sharing the Gospel of Jesus with the children and families of Haiti.

Last weekend, Lance and Pastor Randy had an amazing opportunity to ministry at a pastor’s conference in Arnoux, Haiti. Although Haiti Care Mission’s primary recipients of ministry are children, this was an awesome chance to serve Haiti in a new pathway.
During the conference, forty pastors and Bible school students gathered to take part in eleven sessions of teaching. The theme of the conference was “Honor and Order”. The goal of their mission was to encourage and challenge the pastors through the Word. It was a great time of refilling and refreshing for the pastors. We believe many lives will be touched through the work of this conference. Please pray with us that the seeds planted during the conference will bring refreshing and refilling to each of those who attended and their churches.
Through the generosity of New Life church and Haiti Care Mission supporters, we were able to give each pastor a gift bag with a new shirt and tie, as well as personal items. In a culture that places high value on being properly dressed for church, it was a true blessing for each of these pastor to receive these gifts. Thank you to all of you who donated items or financial gifts for this project.
Our Next Trip
Our trip to Haiti this month will have a level of significance for us as we are dedicating this trip to the memory of my Aunt Jean. My aunt, Jean Rottier, passed away this spring and her family chose to bless Haiti Care Mission with the funds from her memorial. Therefore, we are dedicating this trip to her memory.
My aunt Jean was an amazing woman. She had a heart so big that she seemed to be always doing something for others and giving away part of herself. She was a very talented craftswoman and could make just about anything with her hands. But, the thing that I remember most about my aunt Jean was her welcoming spirit. She loved everyone. At the family reunions, she made each person feel special and she took time to make sure you had everything you needed. I am sure that if a non-family member would have walked up, she would have greeted them the same way and invited them in for a bowl of booyah.
Aunt Jean spent the last years of her life fighting ALS, but the disease never stopped her loving spirit. Even though she could not talk without her electronic devise, she still could make you feel like you were the most important person in the world. Her spirit of love for all people and giving heart were inspiring. As we travel to Haiti, I hope that all of the people I meet feel that same kind of love from me. I want to show them the love of God like my aunt Jean did. She was a great role model for all of “being the hands and feet of Christ.”
We would like to extend a very special thank you to Uncle Bob, Dustin, Rachel, Stephanie and Mitchell for honoring us through your mom’s memory. We are grateful for your trust in us and in your gift of love to the children of Haiti.
