As Megan described the random mountain in Gressier she visited during her second medical missions trip with the hospital she worked for, it became abundantly clear that this mountain was anything but random for our Big-Picture God. On this mountain was just one tree.
Even with this bombarding it took a few months of wrestling with the logistics of what this would look like before Megan came to terms with exactly what God was calling her to do. In January 2011, with little more than an understanding that this is where God was leading Megan quit her job, sold all her belongings and obediently moved to the land and the people that God had called her to.
Since 2011 so much has changed and progressed. Megan started this mission with little more than the clothes on her back and a desire to help. Since then, she has gone from helping to feed hungry children to providing 2 meals a day, an education, medical and dental care to 500 children and even now is beginning to provide psychological care to those who have suffered abuse. This ministry is now equipped with buildings, staff, play equipment for the children, and it is continuing to grow.
Megan is a beautiful example of how one person’s obedience to God can make a huge difference and a meaningful impact for years to come. Her testimony puts on display the faithfulness of the Father as He has provided for her and this ministry every step of the way.

If Megan’s story has struck you and this ministry has been placed on your heart there are a few ways you can help.
First and foremost, Respire is in constant need of prayer. This ministry is located in a community full of spiritual warfare. The school, clinic, and most programs are housed on a mountain formerly used in Voodoo ceremonies. Prayer is a constant need.
Secondly, this organization runs on donations. Donations make it possible to educate, feed, and provide healthcare for 500 children within the school. Additionally, when the funds are available Respire is able to serve individuals and families within the community. To donate visit www.respirehaiti.org/donate today.
