Freedom House

Tracy and Amanda- OVH

This past year was a year of change, growth, learning and lots of love!

As I continued working in Haiti with the children at the a few different orphanages it became clear to me that God had bigger plans in store for my journey in missions.  He had been preparing me for these changes that I was not able to envision until it was upon me.  I left the safety of an organization to take a huge leap of faith with my dear friend and partner in missions, Amanda Armstrong.

Amanda and I have been traveling to Haiti every 3 months to care for and oversee things at 2 orphanages which was at times very overwhelming.
Through a series of changes within our hearts and lives, it became clear to us that we were needed in a specific area of ministry that was very dear to our hearts, the Freedom House.

The Freedom House is loaded with 25 amazing kids that I can’t help but think of as part of my own family.  There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about and pray for each sweet face that my heart has fallen deeply in love with.

With great support from our friends, family and churches we are able to effectively continue to oversee operations at the Freedom House in Croix des Bouquets, Haiti.  This area is located just outside the capital city of Port-au-Prince.  We continue to travel to Haiti every 3 months and work effortlessly throughout the year stateside to continue raising awareness for restaveks (child slaves), as well as funding for the Freedom House and other various programs we have organized or help such as the “Bucket of Hope” program for pregnant mothers in Haiti.
These programs are designed to give HOPE to the people of Haiti, the people I love so dearly.

1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.

Tracy’s Adventures

Another year come and gone.  2014 was a great year for me but 2015 is going to be even better!  Last year I was blessed with the opportunity to travel to Haiti twice and the Dominican Republic.  I did dental clinics, shared the gospel and loved on a lot of people.  I even had the opportunity to do prison ministry in Haiti.  What an eye opening experience I will never forget.

As I think about what 2015 will bring my family, I am filled with joy. I have a daughter graduating from High School, which I can’t believe.  My husband and I have milestones to celebrate with family.  I have a new job role.  The list goes on and on.

I have accepted a new job role with Reach Haiti Ministries here in Maryville.  I am the new Child Sponsorship Coordinator.  So, I will be back in Haiti soon to get our program going and get these kids sponsored.  I your interested in taking that step I encourage you to talk with me anywhere, anytime.  I would love to answer questions and tell you all about the children of Haiti!

The adventure continues……..
