80% of orphans in children are economic orphans and have families. We are working to reunite these orphans with their families.
In September of 2010, I took my first trip to Haiti looking for a way to help after the devastating earthquake. Just a couple of days into the trip, I was captivated. This trip was a paradigm shift for me as I came to grips with third world poverty and the immense complexities of caring for abandoned children. The Lord placed a passion in my heart for this place. Now, eight years later, that passion remains resolute for this beautiful country and its amazing people. Louisiana Reach Haiti is a 501.c.3 formed to bring other likeminded friends together in close partnership with the Haitian church to restore families and transform lives through the love of Jesus Christ.
Upon hearing the news of the Haiti earthquake in 2010 I was put on standby as a chaplain with the Southern Baptist Convention. In March of that same year I was on the ground of Port-au-Prince assisting a medical team and sharing the good news of the Gospel with the Haitians. Having been in Haiti for three different mission trips God has created a special place in my heart for all the people of Haiti. I have committed to returning to Haiti every year and assembling a team of others from my church to go.
