Haiti Trip

This page will be dedicated to posts and such related to my volunteer mission to Haiti in November 2014.


UPDATE: Below is a list of items that are needed by the 40 children, 29 girls and 11 boys, ages ranging from 5 to 18 years old, at The Maranatha House orphange in Haiti. I wll be going on a misson trip there from November 26 – December 6, 2014.

If anyone who reads this can donate to either my GO FUND ME campaign (link here) or provide these items, please email me at .

  1. Why are you going? What do you hope to achieve? Do you need financial help?

    I’m loving the blog, already said that, now let me see if I can help 🙂 I think your structure is great, now see if you can iterate through each “this part will be about X” and put in some content… so glad to not see this guy ha ha

    • Hi Rob, I will send you a link to my GoFundMe campaign as I am asking for donations, please. And thank you.

      My trip is November 28 thru December 6. I will be going with an organization called Ncompass. You can read more about them and their ministry at

      I am going to just “love” on the 40+ children who live at the Maranatha House orphanage there. I hope to play soccer – provided my hip surgery on June 11 is successful. I also will be bringing my digital SLR for me and the kids to take pictures with.
