In 1969 several men from Northwest Ohio went to Haiti on a short-term mission trip outreach. The men were deeply moved by the situation of the native people and began to raise funds for ministry in Haiti. Eventually, Mission Possible (USA) was formally established by them in 1979 in Findlay, Ohio. In 1980, Mission Possible (Canada) was formed as a sister ministry.
The mission began with a single school in Montrouis, Haiti about 50 miles north of the capital, Port-au-Prince. Initially, a guesthouse and mission center was also established in Port-au-Prince. From this base Mission, Possible reached out into the mountain villages around Montrouis, constructing and establishing schools, providing much-needed food and relief supplies, and fostering evangelism. In 1983, it established a mission center in Lanzac, a small community near Montrouis and subsequently the Port-au-Prince facility was closed.
Also in 1983, Mission Possible’s USA headquarters was relocated to Fort Pierce, Florida after the ministry acquired a 73-foot ocean vessel to ferry relief supplies to Haiti. However, due to the overwhelming cost of repairs to the ship, the shipping ministry closed in 1989.
