Haiti ARISE (Actively Raising Individuals to Serve and Evangelize) Ministries was founded in 2000 with the purpose of working to meet the need for change in Haiti. The organization is actively working to bring natural as well as spiritual change in this nation through education and training. Haiti ARISE provides numerous community transformation projects to help the people improve their health, economy, spiritual lives and assist in the material needs of the poor. Haiti ARISE has a regular food distribution program, drills clean water wells in the surrounding communities, conducts regular evangelism visitations, and has undertaken a home rebuilding program called EachONE BuildONE to help families who lost their homes in the 2010 earthquake rebuild their homes.
Partnering with Haiti ARISE, our teams have the opportunity to serve the people of Haiti outside of Port-Au-Prince by assisting with their medical needs, construction and rebuilding projects from the 2010 earthquake, education opportunities for children, village walks, and more. By providing assistance to Haiti AIRISE, our teams stimulate hope in the lives of the community members and the people will in turn be able to make changes in their own lives and communities.
We believe when people engage in service, it leads to life change. Our short-term trips provide opportunities for people to serve together in various locations around the world. Our belief is that as people chose to serve, whether in one of our churches, in the local community, or around the world, the impact of that service will change lives—for those serving, for the people they serve, and even for those that see them choosing to give their time to help someone else.
For those of you who have not gotten involved, we hope this will be the year you choose to begin a lifestyle of service. And to those who are serving, we just want to say thank you. You are the reason the mission is being accomplished.
