A Bittersweet Goodbye

When Anna and I first started discerning full-time missions over 2 years ago, we were blessed to meet a very holy couple. Erik and Bridget Martin were a newlywed couple who started their marriage off as a missionary couple with Life Teen Missions. Erik had already been a Life Teen […]

Be missionary!

Something that I hear often is what a great person I am for being a missionary in Haiti. I think people admire the thought of someone temporarily giving up their life in the U.S. to go to some poor foreign country to feed the hungry and clothe the naked even […]


Throughout scripture we see Jesus doing these amazing miracles. He makes the blind see (John 9), the mute speak (Luke 11:14), the deaf hear (Mark 7: 31-37). He feeds thousands of people with a few pieces of fish and bread (Matthew 14:13-21). He even raised the dead back to life […]

Blown Away!

It’s the 18th week of our mission in Haiti and still I am in awe of the Lord’s faithfulness. He promised that he would send us on mission to Haiti and he did. He promised us community and we are surrounded by families, priests, and parishes that love us. He […]

I got what I wanted for Christmas.

As Christmas was approaching this year, it didn’t seem like Christmas. First off, it’s hot in Haiti all the time. I’ve never celebrated Christmas away from Boston, where it’s always cold in the winter. But also, we had no decorations, no lights, no Christmas tree, no gifts, no Christmas cards, […]

Recently we drove to Port Au Prince, the capital of Haiti, to take Fr. Dave Pivonka to the airport for his flight back to the U.S. Like all trips to Port-Au-Prince, there are many stops because it takes all day to get there and back so you might as well […]

Adjusting to Life in Haiti

It’s day 12 of Mission Haiti, and I’m running out of clean underwear. It’s ok though because we’re leaving to go home now, right? Nope, we bought one-way tickets to come here! Eleven days is probably the longest I’ve ever been on a foreign mission. I usually don’t have to […]

God is Faithful (Part 2)

My missionary formation year at Covecrest (in Tiger, Georgia) was the greatest year of my life. And although I was hesitant to go because of my desire to only serve in Haiti, I can now say that full-time missions in Haiti would not be possible without the formation, healing, rhythm […]

God is Faithful (Part 1)

Has the Lord ever placed a desire on your heart or made known to you that he was calling you to something great, but it took months or even years to come to fruition? Maybe the Lord was trying to purify your desires, maybe the timing wasn’t right, or maybe […]
