Haiti Internship Starts May 30th!

[Please click on each picture to see which year it represents for the girls]


On May 30th Sophia and Tara are headed to Haiti for a 6 week internship. Through our partnership with Aslan Youth Ministry, years of prayer and preparation and God’s perfect timing, these girls are able to experience one of their heart’s desires…

 This trip will be Sophia’s 7th time and Tara’s 3rd time in Haiti.  

For the first 5 weeks the girls will be investing their time and talent with the community of Lac’ajue. Tara, a nursing student, will be (with the help of her mom Allyn’s experience and input) starting a malnutrition program in the community, carried out through the Clinic of Hope on the Aslan property. She will also be meeting with 30 youth on a weekly basis to discuss important medical / faith issues. Sophia will be assisting Tara as needed as well as teaching English to 30 youth (who have been taking our English classes since last summer), and shadowing Joseph on his day to day activities. Both girls will help teach English to the medical staff and Joseph’s family and support staff and weekly will be learning Creole.

The girls will be living at the mission house, a top of Joseph’s home, with Shilove (one of the Clinic of Hope nurses) staying with them at night as a house mom.

They will be learning what it is like to live in Haiti, as a missionary. This will include cooking meals, doing laundry, going grocery shopping, dealing with the unexpected day to day happenings all while deepening their relationship with Jesus Christ and praying for His leading in this area of their lives.

Week 6 our team of 7 will be joining them and finishing up their 6 week internship together!

How did this all start?….

For Sophia, her and I met when she was 13 at Action Gymnastics in Howell. Quickly after meeting her I knew she was a Christian. We talked a lot about the Lord during her classes and I told her about our trips to Haiti. At the ripe old age of 14 she came with us on her first trip.

For Tara, her and her mom Allyn were going to go to Haiti through another church in 2015 but Tara broke her ankle and they were unable to go. Having known Allyn and her family for many years, she approached SOFM to ask if they could go with us in 2016.

All this shows how God’s timing is SOOOOO perfect! Now, years later, both girls are in college and desiring to be used by the Lord in Haiti for these 6 weeks, but possibly for much more time in their future.

Please join us in prayer for them and for their time in Haiti!

5th Year Anniversary for Maple Leaf Tutoring!


It’s hard to believe that 5 years ago on March 13 the Maple Leaf Tutoring Program began. Little did we know back then… all that the Lord was going to do just in our first 5 years!

Please take a moment to look at the pictures above (once it loads) and see all the children, volunteers, special guests and special events that has made the past 5 years such a blessing. Thank you to all who have invested their time, gifts, talents, resources and prayers to spread joy and Jesus in and through this community.

What a blessing to watch these children grow up and become leaders and volunteers at Maple Leaf, our local Vacation Bible School and Atlantic City Mission trips! 

Our prayer is that God will continue to open the doors into the hearts of the children and continue to provide the volunteers that weekly devote their time to changing lives… one child at a time!

Thank you and Happy Anniversary!!
