We Are Going On A Faith Adventure to Haiti in March 2021
We Will Encourage and Teach CIDM Staff, Leadership Teams and Thousands of Haitian Youth
We are excited to visit our beloved Haitian staff, leadership and youth. Due to political unrest and Covid-19, it’s been three years since we’ve been able to travel to Haiti. We’ve hired 3 staff since then that we’ve not met in person. It’s important to spend time with them and all 8 of our staff to encourage, inspire and challenge. CIDM reaches over 4,000 youth per week and we plan to speak into their impressionable hearts.
We are excited to announce that CIDM is partnering with Kelly Bartlett, founder of The Graceful Warrior Project (GWP). She and a co-laborer will be joining us for an incredible week as we equip the young women of Jacmel with tools to thrive rather than just survive.
The story of Dave, Darlys and Kelly goes back five years…sharing a special bond from the beginning…a missions heart. Dave & Darlys, missionaries who had recently returned from serving 5 years in Haiti and Kelly, a younger missionary who had just returned from serving in Congo for 7 months. Darlys and Kelly would do coffee, talk, share, pray and learn from each other.
Over the years, we’ve championed Kelly through her journey as God’s taken her boxing, jiu jitsu skills and her passion for Jesus and others. Using her gifts to glorify God, He’s formed The Graceful Warrior Project. God’s set a plan for Kelly to be a global-women’s-empowerment-activist, where she now travels the world on behalf of The Graceful Warrior Project equipping women who are facing all levels of oppression, to become everything that they were created to be: spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. Darlys and Kelly always prayed that someday God would use GWP among the Haitian women. The need is great, and God’s timing is now.
Our Plans For The Week Are:
- Facilitate Kelly Bartlett as she introduces the GWF program in Jacmel and teaches the young women the 4 areas of self defense
- Empower and teach our Haitian staff and leadership teams
- Encourage and speak to the students in our New Discipleship Bible Club
- Visit and bring the hope of Jesus to the high schools where we teach Bible classes
