Off To Haiti

We are so blessed to have such supportive friends and family that helped us host a very successful fundraiser dinner for Reclaimed this past Sunday. Thank you to everyone who came out to support Tyler and I!

I wanted to take a moment to share some more exciting news with you all. As you may know, I am in my last semester of nursing school at Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing and boy, will I be glad when graduation day is here!

Every spring break, the school sends a team of faculty and students to Haiti to provide nursing care to Haitians without access to health care. This year, I was chosen to be a member of the team! What a blessing!!! This trip will give me priceless experience in providing nursing care on the mission field. I am beyond excited!!!

We leave this Friday, March 18th, and will return on the 25th. While in Haiti we will provide care to hundreds of patients in the four days of our clinic.

Please pray I will be a sponge, soaking up all the wisdom and skills I can. Pray for Tyler as this will be our first time apart for many days since we’ve been married. And pray for my team, 8 students and 3 professors, that we will be able to work well as a team and grow relationships that will last a lifetime. I will write a blog post when we return to share about what I saw, did, and learned!

    Wonderful and how fitting that this opportunity comes as you prepare for your next adventure in Lesotho! The James 1:27 necklaces were a hit to the three ladies who won “perfect attendance” during our Bible Study about Genesis. Thank you for sharing the art from these talented ladies in Africa 🙂 Hugs, Blessings and JOY always! Lisa
