My name is Dan Montsma. For years I lived my life the best way I knew how but the first time that I went to Haiti with OH4F I realized that I could never go back to the same life. I even struggle with whether or not God is calling me to pack up and move to Haiti so that I can live with these children. Even though I don't know what will happen in the future I do know that right now God is calling me to do whatever I can for them.
My name is Gladys Montsma and my story also begins with a vision trip where God opened me up to see that there is so much more I can do in my Christian walk. I cry thinking about what so many children have to live with in Haiti; walking the streets, not having parents, so little or nothing to eat, and not having a home filled with love. I see the faces of my grandchildren in these children and my heart bleeds for them, I want to do what I can to help. Each time I visit Haiti I leave a piece of my heart there, that is why I am a part of OH4F and I hope that you will join with us. If you are interested in going on a trip I am the one that you will contact.
Hi! My name is Craig Van Hill. I am so humbled to be a part of God's work through OH4F. In 2013 God broke my heart and gave me a passion for orphans in Haiti while on my first vision trip. It has been amazing to see the surprising and miraculous ways that God has worked through so many. And I have learned so much from my brothers and sisters in Haiti. God has blessed us with gifts to share. I look ahead eagerly to the next time that I can visit my children and my co-laborers for Christ who are living in Haiti.
My name is Avry St. Peter and I am a mother of 4 beautiful children. I have always had a place in my heart for children, especially those without a home. In the summer of 2013, I went to Haiti for the very first time and God broke my heart. I knew that forever I was changed and wanted to serve as much as I could. In November 2013, I joined the OH4F board of directors and haven't looked back. My entire family is now involved with this amazing organization and we are defending the fatherless together. Although our home is in Kansas, our hearts are in Haiti. Won't you consider joining us in our Mission?
Mark St. Peter is a 32 year old father of 4. He is currently a sales rep with a technology company in Hays, Kansas. Mark went on his first Vision Trip with OH4F in 2013 and felt God calling him to "Defend the Fatherless", that is why he joined the board in 2013. Mark was able to be in Haiti for the dedication of the school in October and de-scribes it as an "amazing experience." Mark has taken off with his new role on the board and is sharing about OH4F daily.
