This year as an Easter giving project, we are challenging you to fill buckets full of supplies that the medical teams use while serving in Haiti! This is a perfect project for churches, classes, Lifegroups, families, etc. Whether you fill one bucket or multiple, every supply is needed and appreciated!
In December, Pastor Herve and his committee in Haiti held the third annual Bible Quiz. This year, 89 people registered and studied the book of Acts. Of the 89 registrants, 69 of them got to the final graduation, and the winner was a female from St Marc church.
It is wonderful to see so many people dedicated to reading and studying the Word of God! Congratulations to all of the quiz graduates!
Interested in serving in Haiti? There are teams being formed for a couple of trips in February! Check out the details and email Pam@OurMissionIsPossible.org if you are interested or know someone who might be.
Week 1: Construction & School Physicals
Week 2: Construction, Medical Follow-Up, OB Seminars
Applications & $500 deposits due by January 1, 2019!
In November, we tried something new while we were in Haiti. Each week that a team was there, we hosted a sponsorship dinner. The sponsored students of the team members who were there that week were invited to the Mission Center, along with their family members, to share a meal with us. It was a special time of getting to know the students’ families better, and getting to spend quality time with them!
In October, student and class photos were taken. The team was able to photograph almost all of our Haitian students. As some of you know, it is more common NOT to smile for a picture in Haiti. North Americans, however, smile. Many of the students worked hard at keeping a straight face when their peers were doing all they could to make them smile. You can read the team’s blog and see some of the week’s pictures at October Haiti Team.
Big news: we’re SO EXCITED to announce that we have opened a “virtual store” through Flag City Clothing (located here in Findlay, Ohio)! A percentage of each sale will come back to Mission Possible, so not only can you look awesome, but you’ll know that you are supporting the ministry at the same time!
From now through December 3, our virtual store is open with all types of new Mission Possible apparel! These items will make perfect Christmas gifts, and because the order will be placed by December 3, they will be ready for Christmas! And if you aren’t local, no worries- shipping is an option. 🙂
The Dash for Degeance competiton has begun, and the first week’s results are in! All of the teams did a great job and are continuing to challenge themselves and each other! Here are the top five teams after the first week, but stay tuned, because who knows what this week will bring and whose name will be in the top five next week!
We’re SO EXCITED to announce our newest fundraiser event, “Erase The Board”! As you know, our teachers work very hard and in very unique environments. This fundraiser is to help raise money to cover their salaries!
The best part: you can do it from the comfort of your home! You can donate below or text MPSCHOOL to 71777 to process the donation! As numbers are chosen, they will be erased. The goal is to erase the entire board.. and we know it can happen with your help! 🙂
We can’t wait to see how God moves through all of you as we support our teachers in this way! Keep checking back to see the progress throughout the next few weeks!
Earlier this week, members of the St Marc church community in Haiti spent three days fasting, praying, and worshiping together.
Pastor Herve said, “Lots of people came and it was a wonderful time to praise, worship, and pray to God.
As we worshiped Him, 5 people accepted Christ. One couple were voodoo priests and came to the Lord, and the other 3 were ladies. We went to the voodoo couple’s house and burned everything from voodoo.
We will have a wedding next Sunday because the voodoo priest wants to get married and be baptized to the Lord. We are in full preparation right now with the church for our next celebration on Sunday. The church is going to take care of everything to marry them like provide clothes, rings, etc.
God is doing extraordinary things among His people! PRAISE BE TO OUR GOD.”
We have several exciting upcoming events coming up soon! The first one we want to announce is…. the 2nd annual “Dash for Degeance”!
The Dash for Degeance is a month-long event that involves nothing more than keeping track of how many steps you take each day. Teams of 4 will compete against each other to see who can accumulate the most steps by the end of the month!
This is a great way to get outside and enjoy that last little bit of warm weather before winter hits, while helping raise money for our new church & school campus in Degeance, Haiti! Some people even lost some weight while competing last year! 🙂
Grab your family members, coworkers, Lifegroup members, friends, neighbors, etc and get signed up! The cost for registration is $25/person ($100/team). If you want to register as an individual, we will add you to other individual registrants!
Add some extra competitive fun to it by competing against other people in your workplace (7th grade teachers vs 8th grade teachers, OB vs ER workers, football coaches vs soccer coaches, etc)!
Registration deadline: September 30!

If you have questions, email Rene@OurMissionIsPossible.org — we look forward to getting even more teams involved this year! There’s a special incentive for those who competed last year, so be sure to check that out! 😉
