Update: Spring 2016.

Below are some highlights & favorite moments from this Spring. I’m deeply grateful for this life, this country, these people, & these memories.

What better way to celebrate the MOH 2016 spring intern class than hiking through the mountains & soaking in this beautiful place? When you’re hiking up the mountains & they say it’s time for a mango pit-stop, YOU SAY YES.Screen Shot 2016-05-20 at 4.22.39 PMScreen Shot 2016-05-20 at 4.22.48 PM

April 21, 2016. 6 years, 3 months & 9 days after a devastating earthquake struck Haiti & created massive devastation for many all across the country, 615 houses are now complete to help alleviate one of the many problems caused by that earthquake. That’s 615 families whose lives have been transformed by having a place to live, a place to send their kids to school, & most importantly, a church on top of the hill for people to praise God for what he is doing in Haiti.Screen Shot 2016-05-20 at 5.10.19 PM
