Rachel’s journey to Haiti began in 2015, on a short-term missions trip to an organization located in Dessalines, Haiti. This first trip quickly turned into annual trips and a month-long internship, all of which grew her love for missions and the people of Haiti. Ultimately, the Lord used her experiences in Haiti to reveal His character to her. That He is a God of justice, provision, kindness, and grace, and that He was calling her to follow in His ways in every aspect of her life.
A few months after graduating from Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis in 2020, Rachel’s love for reading lead her to pick up Hands & Feet: Inspiring Stories and Firsthand Accounts of God Changing Lives, the book written by Audio Adrenaline that her brother gifted her the Christmas before. Inspired by the stories of Hands and Feet Project written throughout the book, she felt the Lord leading her to be a part of Haiti in a much more permanent way.
Now, stepping into the role of Child and Family Advocate at the Jacmel campus, Rachel is excited to pair her passions for orphan care and the development of sustainable solutions that will impact generations to come. By the Lord’s grace alone, she has the opportunity to be a part of the Hands and Feet Project team, and it is her prayer to model His mercy and love every step of the way.
