Over the past five years, my wife and I have been sponsoring a little girl from Haiti through Compassion International. In fact, I began sponsoring her in 2002, before we were married. At the time, she was four years old. This year, she will turn 15. It has been amazing to see her grow up through letters and photos, but we have always had the desire to actually see her in person. This November, we will answer this call from God and travel to the Belle-Anse area of Haiti to visit her and her family. During the trip, we will spend time with our sponsored child and her family, but we will also tour and serve in Compassion’s facilities in Haiti. This will be Yvette’s second time serving in Haiti, but it will be my first experience there. Due to the nature of this trip, we would like to ask for your prayer support. We ask for God’s safety in travel, an ability to connect well with the family, and that we would be able to serve well in God’s name.
As you can probably assume, we are extremely excited for this opportunity! Unfortunately, though, a trip like this also costs money. Specifically, it will cost us $2590.00 a piece, plus additional costs for roundtrip airfare from Boston to Miami. We have already paid for the trip out of our savings. However, we did not want to overlook the fact that many of you might want to partner with us. In fact, many have already done so, and we are extremely thankful for you all! Currently, have raised just over $1,000, and one family has purchased our flights to and from Florida. If you want to help out, that would be amazing, but we do not want you to feel pressured at all! Most of all, we would like for your prayer support. If you do want to donate, though, you can do so online via GoFundMe, or if you feel more comfortable sending us a check, you can do that as well. You can send it to Rockingham Christian Church, Attention: Steve Cullum, 5 Industrial Way, Unit 2, Salem, NH 03079.
If you have any questions, we would love to hear from you. Feel free to contact us via email, phone, or social media. Also, we do plan to share all about our experience after the trip. So, stay tuned to this blog for that. Again, we want to thank you so much, especially for your prayer support, but also for your consideration to help us financially. May God bless your generosity, and increase your ability to give to others.
