-Over 790,000 meals were made for our students
-7,000 hygiene kits were prepared and distributed
-Over 200 adults were faithful Mission Possible employees
-218 people traveled with us to either Haiti and/or the Dominican Republic
-127 people began sponsoring students
-Nearly 2,500 Bibles were distributed

In the midst of everything, we continued to press on toward the goal of equipping the next generation of Christ-centered leaders every day. Thank you to the thousands of people who partnered with us in 2016. We look forward to seeing what God has in store in 2017!

As we move forward into 2017, we can’t help but look back on God’s faithfulness to this ministry in 2016. Please join us in celebrating what God is doing as you watch this 2016 Year in Review video clip!
Many of you know that over the past year or so, we have been in the process of renovating an old building and making it into our new office. We’re excited to announce that it is finished and we have moved! We are no longer located on W Front Street in Findlay; you can now find us at 306 W Bigelow Avenue in Findlay, Ohio! Thank you to everyone who helped us during this big transition!
We are thrilled to give you the news about our Teacher School graduation! In July, 42 of our teachers graduated from the school. The Teacher School is a three year program to help our current educators increase their professionalism and credentials.
Seventeen of the graduates were qualified to take the national examination to become a nationally certified teacher. All seventeen passed! That makes us feel good about the value of our program.
Often we get the question, “Why do you take people on mission trips? Wouldn’t it be more efficient and save on plane tickets to just send the money to Haiti?” Mission Possible takes many people to Haiti and the Dominican Republic because we know it makes a special difference to the Haitians — people have come so far at great expense to tell them something important. It also makes a profound impact on the lives of team members. This account comes from Abbey, a recent high school graduate:
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.
In January our Haitian leaders that graduated from our Leadership Academy started giving away their leadership to our other staff and students.
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.
