From a returned missionary

Sheena green shirts LNSheena King returns from Haiti
Sheena has recently returned from a six month term of missionary service in Haiti. Here is how she describes her time:

“I am very thankful to DOVE for helping me to take this trip. There’s something about leaving your comfort zone where everything is “easy” and going away to where you are forced to put complete dependence and trust in the Lord. It’s very rewarding! I love adventure and have a bit of an independent spirit, so I was excited for this journey. My main focus in Haiti was teaching English from elementary aged students to adults. I also did some other ministry projects such as distribution outreaches, children’s ministry, girls’ Bible study and business seminars. It was an incredible experience, I was not only challenged and stretched with my every day duties but so blessed and filled with love and passion from being right where I felt God wanted me to be. I learned unforgettable lessons, built long lasting relationships, experienced a time of major spiritual growth, and simply had my eyes and heart opened to a bigger picture of God’s world. I feel so blessed to have had this opportunity!”
