My time in Haiti sparked a deep passion and awareness of the need for missionary care. “Missionary care involves spiritual, emotional, relational and physical nurture provided to missionaries by those who love and support them.” source
I moved to Haiti naively thinking that missionaries would be the best and nicest people I’d ever met with a common goal and focus of serving local people.
It didn’t take long for me to see how the intense stress and pressures in my own life on the field were taking a huge toll leading to compassion fatigue and burn out.
I watched the complexities of cross cultural living and the lack of being understood locally and from home cultures take a toll on friends, faith, marriages, children, and more.
I personally have experienced the healing benefits of missionary care through Paracletos and several others in this field. I am committed to continuing to serve the expats in Haiti to live brave, whole, and healthy lives.
If you’d like to join me in this mission, please send me a message! You can also check out Paracletos to donate online.
