YBM Haiti Mission Trip Success!

We’re Back! Thank you for your prayers!

 

The YBM Haiti Mission trip was an awesome, life changing experience. The mission team spent time in devotion, prayer, service, global leadership workshops and cultural exchange with the Haitian people.

 

The primary objective of the YBM Haiti Mission trip was to share our love, compassion, knowledge, skills, and resources with the people of Haiti. The secondary objective of the mission trip was to increase the cultural intelligence, sensitivity, experience, and global awareness of the YBM team. The trip also provided the YBM Student Ambassadors with the opportunity to use their leadership skills in real service work that will have a positive impact on the world.

During the trip, they had the opportunity to attend a Haitian church service in a local village, visit a teen summer camp for girls, and serve at two orphanages. The team also expanded their cultural knowledge by visiting several traditional Haitian locations including downtown Port-au-Prince, a Haitian store, Lake Azuei, and the beautiful Wahoo beach.
