We want you to be apart of what the Lord is doing in Haiti
We want to welcome you to join us on a One Foot Raised trip. One Foot Raised's goal is to help teams travel to Haiti to link arms with churches in Haiti to see Salvation, Discipleship, and sustainable living occur. We have taken teams to Haiti for 9 years, and our first official One Foot Raised trip was last summer. We want to help you be a part of what God is doing in Haiti! We would love to answer any questions you have and will be waiting to hear from you!

Who Can Come:
Married couples, Singles, Retired Adults, College Students, Church Groups, Families, Friends – anyone who loves Jesus and wants to see Him at work in Haiti. We would prefer kids to be at least 8 years of age to go on a trip, but I can testify that serving alongside your children in Haiti is life changing. If you are currently pregnant you would not be allowed to go due to the Zika virus in the Caribbean. The CDC website advises that you do not travel while pregnant.
Serving with us is simple when you follow these steps:
- Connect with One Foot Raised leadership (936-556-0312) to check availability for the date you have selected.
Complete the trip application.
Pay your $200 down payment either in person or online to hold your spot.
Call Janell at Ministry Travel (1-800-346-4207) to schedule your flight for your trip date. Using a travel agent will ensure everyone is on the correct flights.
Pay your remaining balance of $550 30 days prior to departure.
You will receive a call and email from One Foot Raised leadership about trip details.
We would love to send you a prayer support letter each month that gives you an update on One Foot Raised and the work that God is doing in our communities of Haiti. Just leave your email to be added to this prayer and encouragement team.
You can give to the Weems family as they raise support to be in Haiti and lead One Foot Raised. We would love for you to join our monthly support team or to give a one time gift.
Other Ways to Serve
There is a group of women in our community that have put together a website that hosts several patterns that are items that we take and use in Haiti. If you would like to make a few items, we would love to take them with us! Even better, come with us and deliver them yourself.
You can make items for our trips. Head to this website (handworkthathelps.com) and find patterns of items that we take with us to Haiti. We currently are collecting Hygiene bags with pads for young women that are in school or working. These resources help them to be able to continue in education or employment and the pads are washable and reusable
You can make crochet mats that we distribute to orphanages or homes where children do not have a bed. These mats are made of recycled plastic bags and we also teach the women in communities how to make these with the trash that they have around them.
You can also make fidget quilts to hang on cribs or beds in orphanages to help with hand and eye coordination and stimulation of these children.
