Equipping the Next Generation of Christ-centered Leaders
This report comes from Emily Miller, a nursing student from Findlay Ohio who traveled to Haiti in May with a team to treat our Mission Possible school students. Emily is pictured here with Naika, her sponsored student.
“I think one thing that was big for me in this trip was getting to use my nursing skills. I had been struggling with school this past year and was not enjoying nursing. So I prayed a lot about this trip and that the Lord would renew my love for nursing. And he did! I was able to care for people that needed it most and give them hope. I also loved how Mission Possible works to educate, not just a one quick fix. For example, the blood pressure clinic that is set up. They are teaching MP staff and families about controlling their blood pressure and about medication compliance. I appreciate MP’s holistic approach to caring for the people of Haiti. Church was also great, not only was our team of people from all over the states and Canada but then we got to worship with the Haitian church. It was a great picture of the body of Christ!”
Emily’s experience reminds us how God uses our skills and gifts to bless others, while we are also blessed in the process. Thank you for your partnership that helps us bless others.

A team of 26 just returned from Haiti. They were able to do many things, but most of all, interact with the Mission Possible students. Read more on their blog.
In January our Haitian leaders that graduated from our Leadership Academy started giving away their leadership to our other staff and students.
When you’re a Mission Possible student, you’re given a hot meal to eat for lunch each day at school. For some of our students, this is the only food that they eat during the day, so it is something that they definitely do not take for granted!
Since joining the Mission Possible staff, I have had the opportunity to travel to Haiti twice, and the Dominican Republic once. I was especially excited after my most recent trip to Haiti.
We finished the Leadership Academy training and graduated 28 of our leaders.
