It’s been a full week since returning back from Haiti and all news seems to have moved on to other stories. I was utterly exhausted after returning home, as was Miesha. We both probably slept solid for three full afternoons. The adrenaline of being in a high stress situation for a sustained amount of time suddenly catches up once all seems to return to normal. I remember these same feelings in dealing with other disasters in the past, the biggest one being the earthqua...

Our mission trip started out like any team. Plans for the Northwest Mennonite Conference team of 24 representing 5 churches from Alberta had come together for the women to help Haiti ARISE host a women’s conference and the men on the team to work on construction projects on our third duplex in Arise Children’s Village from Feb 3-13. Eight out of the 10 days trip went all as planned with a 4-day conference hosting just over 100 women filled with powerful ministry and lo...

We've just received word from Marc and Lisa on the ground at Haiti ARISE that they are asking for prayer as they are arranging to be airlifted out by helicopter today.

"The situation in the country is escalating after the president addressed the nation yesterday. The opposition is still fighting and blocking roads. There’s no way to get out by road. Please pray for safe passage! We'll keep you updated." - Marc and Lisa Honorat

Please share and be p...

As some of you might know— or more likely all of you— we did not leave today, but we are fine where we are and won’t head to the airport until it is safe.

Yesterday the men went back to do more work on the children’s village and made lots of progress. The electrical work is nearly complete but the tiling will continue to keep them busy. The women went to the beach. I got to work on a presentation for when we get home, which I enjoyed. I didn’t think I’d miss being bu...

Civil unrest and massive protests are taking place all over the country right now. Nothing is open, schools have been closed all week and roadblocks are preventing anyone from being able to travel.

The protests are in response to serious price hikes, inflation, and plummeting Haitian gourds exchange going from $1 US to 65gds to now 82gds in just a matter of months. The people want President Jovenel Moïse to resign.

We have a team of 24 here from A...

Just in case you did not know, we are all good. We are all completely safe at Haiti ARISE.

It has come to my attention that some of you reading this don't know much about me, and I have been requested to give myself a bit of an introduction. If your observant you may have noticed that my name is Ayva, and if your extremely observant you will have noticed that I have the same last name as one of the pastors of the NWMC.

I'm currently 16 and if you see me in real life you'...
