My Next Step: to Haiti!

I would like to announce with great excitement that I have been accepted to serve in Haiti!

I don't know all the details yet, but here is the basic gist:

•  I am going with a group of Ellerslie alumni.
•  I will be serving in an orphanage and a Christian school, wherever I am most needed.
•  I will be leaving in the next 7-10 days (the exact date is still uncertain, because I don't have plane tickets yet).
•  I will be living in an apartment with the other Ellerslie girls.
•  The apartment is in a guarded compound called Club Indigo that is described as "posh."
•  I will have internet access and electricity but no "snail mail" (Haiti has no mail or post office system)
•  I intend to keep my blog updated as often as possible (but it may not be daily), and I intend to post lots of pictures!

In the meantime, you might want to go visit Christy's blog. She is down there at the moment, doing what I will be doing. Her writing and pictures are beautiful.

  1. Rebekah I'm so happy for you! And I look forward to hearing your updates from Haiti! Dear Jesus, I pray you give Rebekah everything she needs to be poured out for your glory in this place you are sending her. I pray you give her Your grace and Your growl and that you would be able to flow your love and purpose freely through her, amen. Let me know if there is anything I can be praying specifically for you Rebekah!
    Love in HIM,
