Team Testimonials:

“[One highlight I experienced was] meeting amazing people and gaining insight into what I want to do in the future.”
“[One highlight I experienced was] experiencing Haiti’s passion for Jesus and how Haiti Arise has facilitated that passion.”
“This trip brought me back to a reality, and it humbles me makes me more appreciative of what I have.”
“This trip made me realize how much I have. We complain about everything at home even though we have everything in the world.”
“[The experiences of this trip] solidified my desire to pursue a medical based career.”
“[The experiences of this trip] have changed me in so many ways. I have learned to stay happy and smile through the toughest times, to always help others and to trust and believe in God.”
“[The event that deeply affected me was] meeting an 8-year-old boy who had lost the use of his arm and knee so he walks with a limp. We gave him a knee immobilizer to help him walk, but he needs to wear it every day for the rest of his life, and yet he still smiles.”
“[The event that deeply affected me was] having to tell a man in his mid-30’s that he won’t have a long life and he was wondering what will happen to his children.”
“[One thing I am going to change in the next six months is] give until it hurts.”
“[One thing I am going to change in the next six months is] to keep an open mind and go with the flow.”
