Grateful- Oh, what we can learn from them!

This last spring break I went to Haiti with my dad and a team of individuals. I knew what to expect, because I had also gone to Haiti a couple of years ago. Little did I know how much different my second time around would be. Going to Haiti the first time was incredible, but going for a second time was that much more amazing! I gained a much greater perspective on the country and was touched far deeper then I had been before.

March Mission Trip Update

This past March from the 16-26th, five team members traveled to Haiti to visit the Lifting Up Haiti Orphanage, formerly known as New Vision, and attempt to make a small difference. We were there to show our dedication to their cause and help them in ways they could not achieve on their own. We had an amazingly successful trip and God’s guiding hand was evident throughout.

The list of accomplishments is long, but includes the following:

January 2011

Well, the big news this month is...WE MOVED! The kids are now in a new location about 1-1/2 miles from the old one in Williamson and they have their own 4 room house! They have a functional well which is HUGE for us. We can use the water for drinking after it is run through our new Biosand filters and this saves us big money that was formerly spent on buying clean water (HALF our budget actually!) Praise God! This water will also allow us to begin a large garden project and buy livestock such as goats and chickens.

Greetings Friends of New Vision!
Gary Biggins and I just returned from Haiti and are happy to tell you the kids at New Vision are doing great! Allow us to fill you in.

We arrived Friday, December 3 and were greeted by the smiling face of our trusted Haitian director, Jean Buteau. We loaded up in our “not so elegant” SUV (hey, it works) and headed out of Port au Prince to our hotel to unpack and regroup.
