On Mission in Haiti

Why Haiti

We have asked God the same question. Trips were scouted to the Bahamas and Nicaragua, but doors were shut. Our desire is to go and do with as little restraint as possible and we have found the most freedom to do this within the country of Haiti.

Language

The official language within the country is Haitian Creole. Part of our hesitation in going to Haiti is this great barrier, but we have found that with a little bit of practice a few words can go a long way. Trust us from experience, if you give a smile, then you will almost always get a smile back.
