It’s been a wonderful weekend with my family~

On Friday, we all celebrated my brother Peter’s 23rd Birthday!

I’m very proud to have such a wonderful and mature younger brother. Happy birthday, Peesha!

Today, I had the opportunity to hang out with my sister Faith before she heads back out to college on Tuesday. And per our annual tradition, we had ourselves a Photoshoot~

It was a beautiful day to take photos, and my lovely subject made my job very easy~. With my new camera (a pretty little Olympus E-PL2 Compact Camera) and the Adobe Lightroom program I got for Christmas, I plan on taking many more pictures! So happy!

Tomorrow and Monday will be just as awesome, because I have the wonderful opportunity to hang out with a team of amazing people who are going to be traveling to Haiti with me to visit Grace International in October. And one of those people is my own brother! So proud, so excited! I can’t wait for him to see the things and meet the people that have changed my own life.

I know this trip is going to be just as life-changing for him and the friends I’m taking.

As you all know, for the past few years, I’ve been dedicating my time to promote a cause that’s near and dear to my heart.

It has been just over 2 years and 7 months since the earthquake of 2010 ravaged Haiti and its capital, Port-Au-Prince. Although Haiti is nearing its 3 year mark of recovery, the aftershocks of the destruction proved to be long-term and devastating. By the grace of God, non-profit organizations, such as Grace International in Port-Au-Prince, have been aiding the Haitian community by overseeing and managing 270 churches, 65 schools, 3 orphanages, medical clinics, hospitals and elderly widow care for over 30 years. The Lord’s Kitchen, Grace International’s children feeding program, has also aided in saving the lives of the children living on Grace International’s campus and in surrounding neighborhoods.

Unfortunately, as time has gone by, the Lord’s Kitchen has struggled to accumulate the funding necessary to keep the program running, while their medical ministries have expressed a need for support and expertise. In response to these specific needs, myself and a carefully hand-selected group of 7 leaders from Bridgeway Community Church will be traveling to Haiti between October 12th-16th to aid and partner with Grace International and serve the Lord’s Kitchen and their medical ministries.

It is my hope that with your help, we can raise enough funds to go above and beyond the $900/per member cost to go to Haiti. Every dollar raised in excess will go directly into funding for The Lord’s Kitchen, and every dollar will feed 3 children! Even the smallest donation has the power to save lives, especially after the wake of Hurricane Isaac.

I humbly ask for any help you can provide so that we can help Grace International continue to spread God’s grace and love to his children in Haiti. Whether you send an online donation or a prayer, I am extremely grateful for your help. You may go to www.bridgewayonline.org/give to give a tax-deductible donation.  Please click on Haiti Missions Trip and designate the Trip Member (Grace Whang) you are supporting. 

Love your faces, and I’ll keep you all posted!
