Haiti Mission: Meet Rick!

Hello I am Rick and I have lived in Huntington Beach for over 20 years. Currently I attend Calvary Chapel Bible College in Costa Mesa. For the last two years have been on nine mission trips down to various parts of Mexico and the last five years I have helped serve food to the homeless at Calvary Chapel Beachside’s soup kitchen on Friday nights. In my free time I like to go to the gym, surf and spend time with my four year old nephew and eight year old niece.


I have heard stories from others who have gone to Haiti on mission trips and how blessed they were by the experience. I am open to whatever He has for me, past mission trips have taught me not to hold on too tightly to any expectations I might have but to be flexible. My mission trips to Mexico have taught me to be more reliant on God and I would like to learn a deeper dependence on Him. Mexico got me a little bit out of my comfort zone and I expect going to Haiti will push me a little further.

I am most excited to experience fellowship with the team and with the believers in Haiti! I pray that I would be a blessing to the Haitian people in whatever way God has planned for me. Surrendering control has never been easy for me so please pray that I will let God and the mission leaders take the lead.
