Bring Hope to Haiti (Guest Post By Taylor Luckey)
The following post has been written by Taylor, the wife of our very own Jeff Luckey:
We (Jeff and myself) are headed off to Haiti, a place very near and dear to our hearts, in just a couple of weeks! We are going with an organization called Grangou (grangou.org) who we have been serving with since 2011. While we are there we will primarily be working with one orphange that Grangou started, called Zan Fan Lakay, but are also throwing three christmas parties for other orphanages, passing out clothing, toiletries and food throughout Port Au Prince, offering prayer and sharing the Gospel of hope.
This is one of our favorite trips because, well, because we get to bring Christmas to the kids. We get to let them stuff their faces with candy and pizza and we give them presents. We also just get to spend hours giving kids needed, one on one, attention that you don't get when you're one of 75 in an orphanage. We get to intimately and intentionally love them with the love of Christ.
Throughout our trips over there we have often found that people in the states want to give and to bless others but don't know how. For the next couple of weeks instead of focusing on raising funds for our trip we decided to do something different so that those who want to help are given an opportunity to do so.
We deeply believe in the power of our living God being revealed through the ministry of music. So we have decided to buy MP3 players in bulk, fill them with worship music and pass them out. We know that life in Haiti is chaotic and people are desperate for hope. So we really believe that these will allow them the opportunity to escape their reality and the crazy that they call life and just put their headphones in and sit by themselves for a little, while being filled with Truth through music.
So, this is where you come in. For $10 you can purchase an MP3 player. It is simple: just email bringhopetoHaiti@gmail.com and we will send you an invoice over. Because our trip is coming up so soon we need the invoices paid by Monday, December 8th. Our goal is to reach 60 MP3 players. Any donations over that will be given directly to the needs of the children at Zan Fan Lakay.
Even if you can't donate, please be praying. We truly believe in the power of prayer and humbly ask that you would cover us, this trip and the people of Haiti as a whole in prayer.
Thank you so much,
Jeff and Taylor Luckey
