Jessica’s Journey to Haiti

TNM Intern Jessica

After working for a month in Thirst No More’s offices, our summer missionary Jessica flew to Haiti where she will live in the TNM house for a month. While in Haiti, Jessica will assist our Haiti coordinator, Erin, in hosting the numerous teams of volunteers as they work on building shelters, help in orphanages, and hold medical clinics.  Jessica will be a great asset as she leads teams on the field and coordinates logistics.

Upon arriving in Port Au Prince, Jessica wrote she doesn’t “know what to say about ‘how it is’ except that simply, the pictures are real.  The pictures we see on TV are real and not just pictures.  That is how the people live and what they are having to go through.  It’s real.  That truth hits hard.”
