January Mission Trip

In early January, a team from Heart of God International Ministries, including David Young, Jan Ross and Lisa Mikitarian, traveled to Haiti with Heart of God Haiti’s new missionary, Erin Corbett. The team spent a week on site in Kenscoff.


Lisa and Jan taught VBS-style lessons and activities with the kids, while Dave helped Erin get situated and followed up construction projects and administrative matters with the local church staff.


The children made several crafts during the classes which the team brought back to the U.S. We will be sending these objects d’art to each child’s sponsor with an update letter that will arrive in your mailbox within the next few days.  


The children are very musical and love to sing. The team captured many videos and photos of the kids laughing, playing and singing. You can see these delightful moments on our Facebook page:

Ezekiel’s Story

Little four-year-old Ezekiel and his older brother Ednel joined us in December 2012, after their father passed away. It was obvious when the team arrived that Ezekiel was very sick with fever and discomfort; it turned out to be Sickle Cell Anemia. What would have been much more easily treated in the United States actually put the team through quite a series of adventures as they sought to get Ezekiel the medical care he so desperately needed. Erin really had to hit the ground running. Not in the country even a week, she had to learn the ins and outs of a very foreign health care system. The story is quite interesting and revealing as to the differences between North America and Haiti. It involved several trips to the hospital and to Port au Prince, 30 difficult miles away, some bargaining with the hospital and local Red Cross, and some real “scratch yer head” moments.
