My name is EmmaGayle Cohen and I am a junior attending Rising Sun High School. Throughout my life I have grown up hearing the word of God and knowing how he loves me. This summer on August 5, 2017 I am lucky enough to have to opportunity to fly to Haiti on a mission trip. On this mission trip we will be doing a variety of things to help the people in Haiti, things such as children’s ministry, visiting hospitals and orphanages, service projects and construction work. I feel as if God is calling me to attend this trip not only to spread his word with the people of Haiti, but to further pursue my faith as well. Not many have the opportunity to hear the word of God, and I would love to be able to take part and be a companion to those experiencing the beginning of their journey through Christ. I have heard from friends and family who have attended mission trips in the past that it is truly a life changing experience.
Now that the trip has been offered to me, I can not pass up on an opportunity such as this. I have always loved children and to have the chance to spread the word of Jesus with their sweet little faces just amazes me. I believe this mission trip will truly strengthen my faith and open my eyes tremendously. I want to thank everyone who has supported me in my decision to attend this trip with both prayers, and financial support as well. God bless!
