17th Annual Edmonton Golf Outing!

The 17th Annual Golf Tournament held at Devon Golf Course (just outside of Edmonton) is happening on Saturday, May 27th at 10:00am! It will be Texas Scramble style, so you can register a team or if you register as a single we can place you on a team. There will be prizes for each golfer, as well.

Following the golfing, there will be a wonderful buffet dinner.

The cost to participate in this event is $120.00, which includes golf (carts extra) and dinner. The remainder of the money raised will go towards the construction of our new Degeance school in Haiti.

Please contact Dave or Gayle Funk (780-469-6581) to register or if you have any questions. We look forward to spending the day with you!

Embracing Change

Change can be hard sometimes. We like our routines, our habits, and we like them because they are comfortable. For the last eleven years, Kurt Bishop has served Mission Possible extremely well. He has strengthened countless areas and grown Mission Possible to the great organization that it is today. Assembling a great, hardworking, passionate staff, Kurt has shown great leadership and done so as a true servant. Even though Kurt will be stepping down as President of Mission Possible, he is not going far. He will continue to serve MP in varies capacities. He is excited to see what the future holds for Mission Possible and his family. We want to thank Kurt for his years of faithful service to Haiti and the Dominican Republic.

My name is David Rath. I have the honor of trying to fill Kurt’s shoes as president of Mission Possible. I have been in ministry for 21 years and am excited to take the reins. I look forward to getting to know as many of you as I can and hearing the stories of how MP has impacted your lives. It is an honor and a privilege to be working and serving alongside you.

Prayers would be appreciated as we transition here in the home office, but rest assured that ministry is happening. Students are being taught, being fed, being seen by medical teams, learning about Jesus, and Christ-centered leaders are being developed. Change is hard, but we lean on the one who never changes – Christ!

Thank you so much for your faithful giving, relentless prayers and your heart for the Island of Hispaniola.

— David Rath, President

New President Appointed!

A note from Mission Possible President, Kurt Bishop:

March 18, 2017

To the Mission Possible family:

Serving as President of Mission Possible has been a real privilege and blessing to me, Julie, and our children. God has blessed me with a great fit at the intersection of my gifting and background and Mission Possible’s needs over the last 11+ years. Working with the U.S. and Canada Boards, Pastor Moise, Pastor Herve, our U.S. staff, and our supporters has been amazing and I thank God for bringing us to where we are today. Together, with God’s direction, we have prepared a solid base of leadership in our Haiti field. We have also built the financial support and a solid U.S. administrative team and operation.

The Reason We Go

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:
