Youth Raising Funds To Head For Haiti

Posted 3/26/2013

By Jackie Nelson

Kingdom Life Ministries hosted a dance-till-you drop fundraiser for youth planning a summer missions trip.  Youth from around Hesston came to a dance-off at Kingdom Life on Friday, March 22 to raise money.

“The Wii Dance Fundraiser will help raiser money for the students that are planning to go. Each student will have to raise $1,300 for the trip,” said Leslie Duerksen, a youth leader at Kingdom Life Ministries.

Youth at Kingdom Life Ministries are preparing for a trip to Haiti to work with Haiti Lifeline Orphanage.  The group will be departing July 11 and returning July 18. 

“Cliff Good will be leading our trip to Haiti. Cliff has been on the board for Haiti Lifeline Ministries for several years,” said Duerksen.

Kingdom Life Ministries has a long history with Haiti Lifeline Orphaniage.

“We have been involved with Haiti Lifeline Orphanage for over 10 years,” said Duerksen.

While the church has a long-standing relationship with the organization, some of the youth members have an even closer connection.

“We have a few students that have been adopted from Haiti Lifeline Orphanage. Roselene Fishburn who was adopted from Haiti Lifeline Orphanage will be returning for the first time since her adoption. What an honor to share this experience with her,” said

Junior Miller, also adopted from Haiti and has returned to his country of origin several times, said it was important to give back.
