Linda Abid-Cummings, Pure Joy Ministries joined Seed One Ministry and others on a mission trip to Haiti. The purpose of the mission trip was to build a bible school to train Pastors, Teachers and Evangelists. While there, we had an opportunity to visit a church service about two hours away. To my surprise, the church was actually a tent (a large tent). The Hatians’ praised the Lord with all their heart, soul, and mind. This is an experience that I will never forget. Too often we get caught up with the building and we lose our focus (our first Love).
On this trip I was asked to come back and help facilitate opening the Bible School, which I gladly accepted. Pure Joy Ministries was able to contribute desks and chairs for a new Bible School.
While on the second mission trip, I spent the second half of the trip with Bread of Life Ministries, a medical mission team from Maryland. We would go to an area, put up a tarp, pharmacy, and doctor’s station (which consisted of chairs facing each other) and it would become the clinic. People would travel for miles (walking) to visit the clinic. For the majority that came to the clinic, this was the first time they'd ever seen a Doctor.
