After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Brad had an opportunity to lead a mission trip to Lifeline’s campus in Grand Goâve. Brad’s heart was broken by the devastation he saw following the earthquake. In that time he felt strongly that God was calling our family to give our lives to the people of Haiti. Not long after that we stepped further out of our comfort zone by moving our family to serve as missionaries to the beautiful country of Haiti.
Over the last seven years we served as teachers in Port-de-Paix, Haiti. Our kids have loved growing up in Haiti and consider it home. Our oldest daughter, Casey, was married this summer to Randy Maurrasse, a wonderful Haitian man she attended school with.
They are currently finishing their degrees at Kentucky Christian University. Our son, Carter, graduated high school last year, and left Haiti to pursue his college education at Asbury University. Our two youngest daughters, Riley and Ally, are currently homeschooling and looking forward to a new adventure in the country they love.
We never could have imagined nine years ago where this journey would take us and what it would look like just because we gave a simple “Yes” to God. Now we are excited to say “Yes” again by joining the work that God is doing through Lifeline Christian Mission. From the beginning our family chose the tagline of “Better Together…On Mission.” We believed then and still do that when we are about God’s mission in the world, we are better together than any attempt we could make on our own. We can’t wait to see how God’s kingdom comes in new and powerful ways as we join together with our brothers and sisters in Haiti through Lifeline.
