After coming to Haiti to visit family in June 2010 for a second trip to Haiti, I felt a pull on my heart and knew Haiti was where I needed to be. Two months later I had quit my job, sold most of my belongings and was back on a plane heading ‘Home.’ After commiting my life to Christ I knew I needed to take a leap of faith and follow His call. It has not been easy, but it is through the trials that we are tested and strengthened. Things dont always go as planned, but I’m learning to be flexible and adapt as life comes at me.

“Commit to the Lord whatever you do and He will establish your plan.” -Proverbs 16:3

“We went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.” -Psalm 66:12
  1. Dear Tara,
    I am very touched by your stories. And I am excited to hear your new journey with God and Haiti.
    I pray all goes well with you and rebuilding Haiti schools for the Deaf. Keep your news coming!
    In Him we adore,
    NTID ’88

  2. Hi Tara! I read the article they did on you and your most recent adventure — I wanted to take the time to really applaud and encourage your newfound path! Best wishes and many blessings!

    PS. We are neighbors! I live on the other side of Hispanola *smile* if you ever find yourself traveling the island and need a place to crash here in Santo Domingo feel free to let me know!

  4. Tara –

    Thank you for sharing your blog – after getting to know you a bit the week I spent with you in Haiti, I will look forward to your posts and hope you can keep me up on things until I am able to come back to Haiti – which I most definitely will. You are an incredible and courageous woman and I am a better person for knowing you and the Haitian people are better for having you there.
    N’a we pita!

  5. That is so interesting what you are doing in Haiti. Im am planning on visiting next month. Is it possible that you could forward me Frantz the pilot ‘s number.

  6. Tara,

    This is random but I hope I can get into contact with you. I am a missionary in Haiti and I have been to the deaf school several times. I have misplaced their phone number and was wondering if you still had Sister Jean’s’ phone number or any other contact? I would like to call her before I visit again. We live in Fort Liberte, about an hour away from the school.Anyway…Thanks…
