Just about a year ago today Lisa Olson and I joined another team to go and serve in Haiti. Little did we know what that trip would put into motion. After we came home we had a number of Slumberland associates ask us about our experience. We hosted a lunch and learn to share about our time in Haiti. Many people were moved from the photos and stories after which many remarked…”if you ever go back I want to go with you”. SO… we put out the invitation to the Twin Cities group and 14 others answered the call to go and serve the Haitian people with Healing Haiti. Thanks to each of you who supported our team through your prayers, giving financially and/or donating 24 suit cases full of clothes, medicine, school supplies… we personally carried over 1,100 pounds of aid to Haiti.
We have always known that Slumberland is blessed with AMAZING people… We should not have been surprised how well our team did in challenging conditions. Hot and humid temperatures in the mid to high 90’s every day with humidity in the 60-70% with no complaining and smiles on everyone’s faces the team functioned in one unified spirit. It was amazing to see everyone’s gifts and talents surface in different ways throughout the week to serve both the Haitians and also each other. We can’t tell you how proud we are of the Slumberland team. We left as a group of associates and came home united as dear friends.
We feel very honored and privileged to have led such a great team…
