Part 1. Lessons being learned Transitions are difficult. Don’t get me wrong, I think starting a new chapter in the book of your life is great, but I also know that for me it rarely is a walk in the park. I have been living in Haiti for 1 month […]

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 have visited Haiti eight times since the devastating earthquake on January 12, 2010. I had no idea that an earthquake in the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere would change my life forever. I shouldn’t be as shocked as I am since I know God is a Father who […]
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 […]

I have heard for a long time that I am a part of the Body of Christ, but it took me going to Haiti to get a glimpse of what it really meant. While I was on a mission trip in Haiti, I met some girls named Sophie, Kristal and […]
