Whether it’s a Haiti mission trip for college students or high school students, a Healing Haiti mission trip can provide purpose by ministering to others, and personal impact on your own life. God calls us to be stretched for him and when we take that step of obedience to go, we allow Him to do His best work in us. The impact can forever change your life!
Top 5 reasons to go on a short-term mission trip to Haiti
- Change Other People’s Lives and Your Own
God will use you in mighty ways when you open up your heart to others. As you are ministering to our Haitian brother’s and Sisters, something happens. You feel a connection to the Lord like no other. Jesus stated that “Whatever you do to the least of these, you do for me”. When you love on orphaned children and care for abandoned elderly, you begin to see how God can use those moments to change your perspective and change your heart. Love others as you love yourself takes on new meaning.
- Jesus tells to “Go, Make Disciples of All Nations” (Matthew 28:19)
It’s the great commission…and we GET TO do it. Sharing the love of Christ through physical touch, prayer, worship and relationship building are just some of the ways you get to be the hands and feet of Christ. You will have the opportunity to love people, share Gods’ word through interpreters and simply love like Jesus loved. Serving the people of Cite Soleil by delivering fresh water is another way we get to bring hope and shine the light of Christ to so many in need.
- Broaden Your Perspective of Other Cultures
We live in one of the wealthiest countries in the world and we have so much. Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world and they have so little. When you are given the opportunity to experience life in Haiti, you begin to see the world through a different lens. You begin to realize that all of our “stuff” does not matter. You are given the opportunity to reflect “What is God trying to teach me”? When your worldview is changed, your outlook is broadened and you can begin to see how God can use your time, talent and treasure for His glory.
- Help Haitians with Basic Needs
Healing Haiti believes that we should not do for Haitians what Haitians can do for themselves. Rather, we want to come alongside our brothers and sisters and help build them up so that they can flourish in life. We believe in job creation, education, and long-term sustainability. We help with some of life’s basic needs by delivering fresh water to Cite Soleil and we help to bring education where many cannot afford it.
- Challenge Your Comfort Zone and Bring a Greater Purpose to Your Life
Serving with purpose requires you to depend on God in a way you may have never had to before. Allowing God to stretch us gives Him the opportunity to do His best work in our hearts, and it can change us forever. You will be challenged and you will grow…now is the time to find out how a Haiti mission trip can transform your life!
