It was on September 13, 2012, that Sisters Inga and Marilyn, with suitcase, guitar and most importantly the Word of God, left the USA for Port au Prince, Haiti. We arrived in Port au Prince to be a presence after a devastating earthquake and to “serve where we were needed.” We embraced the ministry of presence, not knowing how or even where we would be called. The Holy Spirit led and guided, and continues to do so as we meet each day. As we reflect on where we were and where we are now, we see GOD, His Kingdom. We see that it is through the CROSS that new life resurrects. Today, the Gospel moves us to see this clearly. What may look dead is not the final or the end. When it is touched by Jesus, by God, it resurrects, stands up, and gives praise. We pray for God to touch the matters of this day and have compassion upon the matters we face with our people and the difficult situations that Haiti has been facing for many days..
We are grateful to God for all of you who accompany us on this journey and who have been with us these 10 years. It is because of you we can do and be the presence needed here in the Felician Mission Haiti.
We are grateful that God gave us more sisters, Sisters Izajasza and Julitta, who make a difference in the lives of our Haitian brothers and sisters.
We are grateful for Our Volunteers in Mission, those who have visited us in the past and those who are now working through ZOOM to teach English to our teens.
It starts with our presence, an encounter, listening and discerning, then our actions.
