We believe that God has called our Missions Ministry a "ready" place of abundant overflow in resources, service and life. Not only will we be known for loving and supporting the Nations but also for cultivating that same heart of outpouring and service close to home. We'll be present and supportive for Dear Friends who have allowed God to lead the course of their lives into the field. We'll be known for our consistent readiness to serve and to be sent out year round. This means that we won't pour our efforts into focusing only on our next Missions trip, instead we'll focus on growing a constantly fruitful heart hungry to surrender to God and say, "Here am I, send me", no matter what that might look like.
Being a missionary on the Go Team or Send Team at Living Waters is about listening, obeying, serving and surrendering. We'll keep learning Christ's dreams for us in reaching out, and pouring out--giving out of the resurrection power of God in our lives.
Secondarily, Living Water's heart for our commitment to Haiti is to invest our time and energy to honor the Haitian people by recognizing and supporting their individual and cooperative ability to be self-sufficient. We are dedicated to sustainable practices in a creative framework of stewardship with the goals of providing jobs and educational opportunities as well as meeting basic daily needs. We plan on consistently giving of ourselves long-term as we realize that specific projects supporting these goals will take time.
We consider relationship with the Haitians a privilege and we are excited to work alongside them to plant and increase God's good gifts for their lives. We enjoy working with Foursquare Missions International and John and Debbie Booker at the Foursquare Base Camp in Port Au Prince. Anyone who would like to donate finances or supplies towards our service in Haiti can be sure their gifts are directly reaching Foursquare Base and being invested wisely for the hope and health of the Haitian people, and most importantly, for the glory of God.

Next Haiti Relief Trip: January 17th-24th!
Trev's taking off January 17th for Port Au Prince with some devoted team members: Dale Southmayd, Fern Helle and Jasmin Williams. We are so excited for this team. Their ministry this trip will be a shift for now from our latest building projects in Les Cayes towards support of orphanages and tent cities in the direct area of Port Au Prince, so they will be staying at the Foursquare Base Camp. This is a God ordained assignment for this team as all the members are deeply plugged into children's ministry at Living Waters and specialize in providing support for children who are facing tough life situations. The team has plans to provide some special craft projects, transport much-needed supplies and do some sharing, teaching and lots of loving :-). I will be holding the fort here in Medford, OR and Trev will send me updates so I should be able to post fresh info on this blog as I hear from the team during the trip. Please join me and the Living Waters support team ("SEND") team as we pray Holy Spirit guidance, presence, protection and multiplication of blessing after spiritual blessing on this team.
Thanks so much for your continued support. If you wish to give financially, scroll down to the bottom of the page for details!
