Thanksgiving Week at Mission of Hope 2018

written by: Angela Bigard, Mission of Hope staff

Thanksgiving week in Haiti is one of the best weeks of the year around here. The Mission of Hope staff and all the mission trip team members participated in lots of different projects. From meal packing to painting, from VBS to cutting grass, and lots more—it was a full week of great ministry opportunities.

Highlights from Thanksgiving Week:

  • 336,000 nutritious meals were packed.
  • The guesthouse and hope.market store received a refresh coat of paint.
  • Worship services on the guesthouse roof were so special.
  • There were countless moments of laughter, joy, and dancing.
  • We got a taste of home as our amazing kitchen ladies prepared a delicious Thanksgiving meal.
  • Watching a Christmas movie together on the basketball court with all the Village of Hope kids got us all in the Christmas spirit!

I am so thankful for the Mission of Hope staff and intern family and how everyone chose joy as they served and chose flexibility as needs arose and plans changed. Something I’ve realized again and again here in Haiti is that God’s plan is always—always—better than our own.

I’m also so thankful for all the amazing team members who poured themselves out as they found ways to serve each other and everyone on campus.

Thanksgiving week of 2018 was one I will not forget, and it really brought together the true meaning of family in the body of Christ. Endless memories were made, and I am so thankful!
