My local church organization does out reach, and global annual mission trips. In July 2017 I was able to go to Saint Marc, Haiti. My parents migrated from Desdune and Port au Prince. This was my first time visiting the Island. Each Missionary is required to raise a minimum of 1500 to cover the flight and transportation. Through out the year we create fund raisers, and ask for donations of toys, food, clothing, books - useful resources to send over seas. I used the Go Fund me platform to raise my funds. I also made a video sharing some of the experience.
