I was finishing my first year of Physical Therapy school when I saw a post in our church bulletin regarding a two week mission trip to Haiti. I had been wanting to go on a foreign mission trip for a few years, but had been restricted due to school and work. After reading the post I realized the Haiti mission trip would fit perfectly into the two week summer break I got between the summer and fall semesters. I went to school and told some close friends about the information meeting and to my surprise three of them were interested. We went to the meeting and to make a long story short the four of us ended up joining the 2002 Southland Christian Church team headed for Northwest Haiti Christian Mission.

The experience changed my life. However, I am not writing to tell you of my experience in Haiti. I am writing to share a video with you that portrays the hunger and malnutrition that continues to wreck havoc on the country of Haiti.

Andy also took our engagement and wedding photos.
