Stephanie Masek

Meet miss Stephanie Masek

Hi Everyone,
My name is Stephanie and this will be my second trip to Haiti with Healing Haiti. I was so very blessed to be given the opportunity to experience Haiti for the first time with my mom (and my incredible team) in June of 2012. I was hesitant at first as I was unsure of what to expect, but the moment I arrived in the beautiful city of Port Au Prince, I fell in love and felt led to continue serving in Haiti. I have participated in many different service projects and mission trips, all wonderful opportunities, but none had as much of an impact on me as Haiti has. Next year, I will be attending Iowa State University and majoring in Nutritional Studies hoping that this will be of use to me in my future with Healing Haiti. This year has been tough, waiting and waiting for a chance to return to Haiti, although I know the wait will payoff as I have kept in contact with my brothers and sisters in Christ from Haiti. I will be overjoyed to finally get my chance to be Christ's hands and feet to the people of Haiti again. I look forward to the moment my alarm clock sounds at 3am on June 17th. I am also looking forward to meeting and getting to know the new staff as well as my team members. Currently, I am a full time student at Totino-Grace High School in Fridley, MN. I work part-time as a Personal Care Attendant for two young women with Cerebral palsy.This has been an incredible blessing to me, teaching me patience and constantly putting a smile on my face even after a long day at school. I love to play the piano and guitar as well as soccer, hockey and basically any other sport. I also enjoy music and singing. I am SO very excited and blessed with the opportunity to return to Haiti and I cannot wait to see what my future holds. Please keep me and my team in your prayers as we live out God's call to serve those in need. Just over 70 days left!!!! :)

I think someone is anticipating a trip to Haiti!? Am I right or am I right!? :)  AWESOME!!! I am excited Stephanie is able to join our mission team this June! A few months again, Stephanie contacted me about the nutrition work I do in Haiti. I had an opportunity to speak to her class at Totino Grace, and to speak individually with Stephanie again. I am glad she is pursuing a degree in nutrition! She is a sweet, young lady that is passionate about service and passionate about Haiti. I look forward to getting to know Stephanie better and to watch her experience Haiti for the second time!
