Not What I Would Have Chosen

This morning as I awoke, fears began to rise. I breathed a familiar, much-repeater prayer, “God this is in your hands, go before”. Oh, the times I have felt helpless. Holding with open hands the path I desire to take. This is not the wait I would have chosen. It

Distracted

Last week I sat down and began typing this post. I got pretty far, had a lot of words, spent a good amount of time. Now what I was going to say seems of little importance. There is something else heavy on my heart.  May and June have been busy.

Headed Home!

A Haitian man I met recently asked me some hard questions.  What was it that drew you to Haiti in the beginning? What is it that keeps you coming back here when the international image of Haiti is so bad and everyone tells you it’s dangerous? I didn’t have a

Start of School

September means the start of school. After preparing material, training teachers, and fitting new uniforms on squirming kids, we began. Previously, I was not very involved with the school. But it has been a joy getting to know each of the teachers and bonding with the kids.  A new teacher

Hi! I’m Rachel. Through a series of God orchestrated events I ended up in Haiti, in 2017.  Through years of serving with a ministry there I came to love the country and its people. I met Nelson and we got married in 2020. It was the best decision of my life!
