I (Julie) was sent to Port Au Prince, Haiti in 2011 to shoot photography and video for a missions trip. When I got there, I immediately fell in love with the country. But – I also fell in love with the trip leader/translator! Fanfan was the most inspiring man of God I had ever met. The way he loved everyone: the trip members, the people he worked with, the orphans, the widows, the sick, the elderly and especially God, was almost hard to believe. But….then I heard him pray. And later, after I caught a glimpse of him in the corner of a room, praying for a little girl with HIV, I said “God, I want to marry that guy”. Little did I know that after Fanfan and I had spent 3 days together, he also prayed for me saying, “God, I wish that you could give me that girl.” God put us on each other’s hearts and we knew there was something special about one another.
Being born and raised in Port au Prince, Fanfan has seen poverty at it’s worst. He has experienced severe need and suffered deeply, but never lost sight of his Creator and the promise for a “hope and a future”. (Jer 29:11).
As we got to know each other, we realized we had the same dreams for ministry: to start an organization that helped the Haitian people go forward. But above all, to share hope, love and compassion through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
