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.
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!
In September, I, Tracy, had the privilege to spend time with our teachers in Haiti. We shared a meal together and then talked about our hopes and dreams as educators. Through these conversations, I learned that some of the basic supplies we take for granted in our classrooms are the ones they have on a wish list. This school year, we were able to provide each classroom with a basic school supply kit, but my goal is to provide even more. Items like construction paper, paint and brushes, musical instruments, and books (in French or Creole) would add so much to what our teachers can do with the students each day. We would love for all of you to be a part of this project, so we have created an Amazon Wish List that allows you to order what we need and have it sent directly to our office. We will then get it to Haiti when we travel there on mission trips. Click on this link to see what we are hoping to provide: Haiti Educators Wish List.
Together we can help equip the Next Generation of Christ-Centered Leaders!

PRAISE THE LORD – and thank you for your prayers! We have heard from both of our Haitian and Dominican field leaders, and the areas where MP is on the Island of Hispaniola did well through Hurricane Irma. We don’t have a ton of details, but enough to say that our people are well and safe, and our facilities stood strong. We are grateful for our Haitian and Dominican staff that weathered the storm there and helped to prepare and protect the people in their communities.
Greetings from the Sponsorship Department at Mission Possible! This is a slower time of the year for me, as our students are out of school and we have not yet received our new school year registration information. But we are excited about all the great things that will be happening when school starts in Haiti in less than two months and in August for the Dominican Republic.
Play Basketball, Give Hope. Full Details…
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.
