Soon after 2010’s devastating earthquake, Mission Discovery teams arrived in the heart of the hardest hit areas. Today we continue to return because 400,000 Haitians live in tent cities amid abhorrent conditions.
God continues to bless the work at the HOLD the Children Home in Haiti. It seems like it was just yesterday that we stood on the roof of the Orphanage. Our vision was to have a place where we could prepare the older kids for the day when they would leave the orphanage. We dreamed of building transitional homes where they could learn to live as a family and be taught vocational skills. They would learn to speak English and use a computer as preparation for life on their own.
From Maury Buchanan: "Today I received this from Paige Wilson a past intern on a Mexico mission trip with Mission Discovery."
Meet my husband, aka Kentucky Boy. The first time we spoke was over a table of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. It was like the Lord was laughing as He thought about our future family and how many conversations we would have as we spread peanut butter.
In July 2013, I caught this picture of Joel Cox taking a moment to soak in the beauty of Bulembu, Swaziland. Bulembu cares for over 500 orphans and each year the ministry that owns the town invites Mission Discovery teams to experience and work in the town whose theme is “Restore a town, Change a nation!”
