Friends! Once again, I need your help.
Specifically, your financial help - as much as you can or are willing to offer, but everything matters. Even $5-10 is a significant advancement toward my goal!
This year, like last year, I am unable to travel to Haiti with the Crossline Men's team.
However, I can still love on the people of Haiti, and you can help me!
I'm running Ragnar on April 3-4, 2020. It's a 200-ish mile "relay-style" race from Huntington Beach to San Diego. But I'm not doing this for my love of running (trust me... there's not much love there). Instead, I'm doing this to raise support for my love of the Haitian people!
Most of you know my heart for the people of Haiti. I traveled to Haiti two years in a row, with other men from Crossline Church under the partnership with the Chanje Movement, for the purpose of sharing the good news about Jesus, along with humanitarian help.
When we go to Haiti, our primary objective is to bring life transformation by revealing who God is, what Jesus did for all of us, and how He positively engages and impacts our lives today. But we also back that up with sweat equity, such as building the roof for a home, or digging out a new septic system or new well, or bagging and transporting food for hundreds of families. In all circumstances we work alongside Haitian workers and partners, because the goal is to 'Make Haitians the Heroes'.
I've witnessed first-hand the profound hope, joy, and life-transformation that Jesus brings to Haiti when combined with compassion, love, and needs being met.
Women and children are protected, families are provided for, jobs are created, businesses are started, medical needs are attended, shelter is provided, impoverished villages gain a new identity that translates into unity and support of one another, and hope and joy flourish when we give even a little of our attention, compassion, and resources to help.
You can do this. You can help.
We are bringing a hope and a future to the children of Haiti through community transformation and revival.
I'm proud to put my personal energy into the mission of the Chanje Movement, and back their mission, because I have seen and participated in the effective, powerful, compassionate, and impactful work the organization accomplishes.
Through the Chanje Movement in Haiti, thousands had continuous access to clean water and received emergency meals, 500 leaders received training, 75 youth received regular primary and secondary school education, five homes were built, businesses were launched and many jobs created. We are helping Haitians be the Heroes, thanks to the generosity of donors and volunteers. We are eager to see the growth that continues to take place in 2020 and beyond.
Haiti, like much of the world, is in need of change. We believe that God can bring help and hope to the nations, and that He will do that through the hands and feet of people. Together, we are committed to raising movements of change in the cities, towns and villages of the world.
