  • More than a “missions experience”

    More than a “missions experience”

    Late tomorrow night I board an overnight flight for Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Once there I’ll spend the next four days with a dozen pastors and youth pastors from across the United States who are coming to explore bringing a team to Haiti with Praying Pelican Missions. I have a confession to make: Going to Haiti doesn’t […]

  • Go to Haiti with Me April 6-9

    Join Adam McLane on a vision trip to Port au Prince, Haiti this April 6-9. Thought about going but run into a bunch of obstacles? This trip is for you!

  • Redemption Song

    Good Friday reminds me of this song and this moment for two reasons. May we sing songs of freedom this weekend. Jesus came to set captives free. May we celebrate and remember as ones freed from bondage. As we celebrate Easter this weekend, let’s remember that Jesus didn’t die just to redeem you. He died […]

  • What have you done for me lately?

    A year ago the earth shook and the world changed. Billions were given. Tens of thousands have gone to help. Yet not much has changed. The poor suffered. The rich got richer. More people died needlessly. The UN has effectively lied, spending money studying and asking questions while accomplishing little. And America sleeps in their comfy beds tonight feeling like they did […]

  • My favorite pictures of 2010

    I have thousands of pictures from 2010. Work events, family life, our garden, and two mission trips. But both of my favorite pictures of the year came from the same day in the same location. The Sons of God Orphanage in Carrefour, Haiti. The first picture is of Kristen. She’s with a little boy who […]

  • Sarah Palin in Haiti and Me

    The other day I got connected to Emily Troutman, a reporter working for AOL News in Port-a-Prince, Haiti. She was looking for Americans who had travelled to Haiti since the earthquake and I fit that description. After a quick exchange of emails, she told me she was just looking for a couple of quotes about […]

  • Perspective

    That’s what 2010 has been about. My life was turned upside down multiple times in the past 12 months. All of which I’m entirely grateful for. Haiti – On January 12th, as news flooded in that much of Port-au-Prince had crumbled in an earthquake, I prayed a crazy prayer. I asked God to comfort those […]

  • Go to Haiti this December

    As the video says, I’m looking to gauge the interest of a trip to Haiti this December 27th or 28th, 2010 – January 1st or 2nd, 2011. I’m specifically interested in leading a team of church/youth/college leaders who are exploring the possibility of a trip in 2011 or 2012. (Yes, this would be my 3rd […]

  • Help Haiti: Education

    This is Pastor Wilnord. We got to know Wilnard and his ministry while in Carrefour last month. If you are interested in helping fund the school in Wilnard’s church or perhaps your church (Or a group of Christian educators, or any combination) is interested in adopting this school to help pay the teachers, provide uniforms […]

  • Piggy Banks

    Jeffrey and Joel were visiting with the people of a tent city in the town of Carrefour, Haiti when they heard periodic banging. Used to the sound of big diesel engines and definitely used to the sound of kids laughing and playing games, metal on metal banging was distinctive pang and piqued their curiosity. Under […]
