Haiti Team 2012

We are excited to announce that among our blog posts of visits to Ethiopia and our upcoming posts on our visit to South Africa, our OH Team Haiti has arrived on the ground in Port Au-Prince, Haiti this week! We want to introduce this team of 12 and be looking for them this week on the blog.
Our team leaders are Deborah and Crystal.

Deborah lives in Utah with her husband and 8 children and has been on MANY OH mission trips. She is also our sponsorship coordinator.
Crystal lives in Nashville, TN with her husband and 5 children. She has been to Ethiopia several times with OH and adopted an older waiting child from our list.
Darci lives in Utah and is an old college roommate with Deborah! This will be her first OH mission trip. We are so excited to have her join us.
Becky lives in Madison, Georgia and works for her church, Madison Baptist Church. She has been on several mission trips, but this will be her first OH trip.
LeAnne lives in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. She is pictured with her three children. LeAnne has traveled to Ethiopia with Ordinary Hero and is a huge support.
Renee lives in San Francisco, California. She has traveled all over the world and has been to Haiti  (pictured here with a baby from that trip). This will be her first OH mission trip. 
Kelly who lives in Houston, Texas pictured here with her family on Halloween, has been a long time follower of the Ordinary Hero Blog and sponsors a child at Respire Haiti, one of the places we will be working. 
Amy lives in Utah and is pictured above with her family. She learned about Ordinary Hero through Deborah. This will be her first trip with OH and her daughter is also on this trip.
Courtney lives in Utah and is Amy's daughter. She too learned about Ordinary Hero through Deborah. This will be her first OH trip.
Next we have Tonya with her 16 yr old son, Dakota. They are from Iowa. We are thrilled to have them join the team. This is their first OH mission trip together! 

Then there's me, Melissa. I live in Nashville, TN and am the missions coordinator/administrative assistant for Ordinary Hero. I traveled with OH to Ethiopia (see picture) in 2010. This will be my first trip to Haiti.

Our journey through Haiti will be an amazing one this week! Check in with this blog for future updates!
