As the Individual Outreach With Adults and Youth (IOWAY) Director, I have had the opportunity to see ripples from many different situations. A “stone” was thrown in at the Los Angeles, CA mission trip in the summer of 2011 by six amazing team members. They decided that IOWAY needed to spon sor a trip to Haiti. I searched in vain for a connection in Haiti until God crossed my path with the path of the President of the Lutheran Church in Haiti when I was attending a meeting in St. Louis. That meeting rippled into a mission trip to Haiti in the summer of 2012 where the six previous team members, along with five additional team members, spent a week in Jacmel, Haiti. While there, their hearts were broken by the poverty and the affect it has, especially on the children.
