This trip is close to my heart because of my love for children and education. As a teacher that works in a Title I school, a lot of my students live below the poverty line. I am constantly seeking ways to help them and help impact their lives in a way that pushes them to do and want more for themselves as they matriculate through school. I can only hope that by my 7-day stay in Haiti, that I will be able to impact at least one life and be a glimpse of hope for those with whom I come in contact. I ask for your prayers in safe travels and traveling mercies. I also ask for your prayers in making a lasting impact in the lives of those in the Haitian community.
