A big ask

We are so thankful for all of your support over the past 5 years. We have asked for your financial support, your prayers, and more recently some help when we came back in March with toys, books and clothes for the boys.  

Thank you. 

Now we have a bigger ask..... About 18 months ago we had four missionary families at Emmaus and through different circumstances 3 of the families have left Emmaus and moved back to the US. The most recent being the Ayars who we lived next to for four years. It will be really strange to return to Haiti without them. 

That means when we return to Haiti, God willing, in summer 2021 we will be the only missionary family living on campus. So we have a big question....would you consider coming with us and being our neighbours in Haiti? 

Ok so we know that being our neighbours is not really a good enough reason to move your family to Haiti.  Actually there are many other reasons why you might consider it but one of the main ones is that there are many opportunities to serve and be part of raising up a generation of leaders, pastors and missionaries for the transformation of Haiti. 

 Here are some of the roles which need filled at Emmaus

- An IT director - this is an urgent need! 
- Maintenance director 
- University administrators 
- English teachers / tutors 
- Theology teachers 
- Hospitality coordinator 

If you need any more information about any of these roles please email me and I will get you all the information you need.  

We promise to help prepare you in any way we can especially if you're from Northern Ireland as this is where we will be until next summer (and I would really love to have another Northern Irish person in Haiti! Although I am sure Bill would love another Canadian!).  We can help with raising support, language learning, culture, packing, flying with kids and much more! 

I could probably write a whole other post about living overseas, about the reasons we first moved to Haiti and why we keep going back but I've decided to condense it down to this. 

I am not going to sugar coat it, living overseas away from your family and friends in a different culture, language and climate is hard.  But being where God wants you to be and being part of seeing God changing a nation is worth it. 

Please if you feel the Holy Spirit nudging you to find out more get in touch with us.

We would love to hear from you. 

I mean.....who doesn't want to experience that?


 One of the things I was able to do on during my time at home in Northern Ireland during covid was some more training, specifically in paedi...
