Hi, my name is Michelle Barrera and I’m so excited about our mission to Haiti! I’ve served at Chapel Perris Valley for almost 20 years, I have 3 kids, and I am married to a wonderful man (Harvey) that I serve alongside in Youth Ministry at CCPV.
The Lord has given me a heart for missions. Jesus said, “If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me: and where I am, there My servant will be also.” (John 12:26) and I earnestly desire to answer that call! I feel as if I have always had a heart for the people of Haiti. My parents visited there when I was a child, and brought back women to help them get established in the US. I want to come alongside Cross To Light in their work to bring hope and salvation to this nation.
For our team, please pray for everyone’s health, for our families as we prepare and while we are away, and especially for the hearts of those we will minister to, that they would be open to the love of Christ. For myself, I would ask for prayer as I prepare to go, that God would give me remembrance of His Word; that the Creole language would come easy to me, and that He would provide whatever is needed for the trip. I am confident that He will, because He is faithful!
Thank you for praying and supporting our team as we follow God’s call to bring His Good News to Haiti!
