One of the quiet story lines is the Francois and Vaughn family.  They represent 3 generations of missionaries, all serving God on the Haiti 2015 trip.  Seen in the photo, is Grandson Nehemiah Francois serving with grandmother Missionary Bertha Vaughn (Not pictured is Mission Ministry Lead/mother Lynette Francois).  Missionary Vaughn, a member of Bethany Baptist, is a seasoned missionary, spending 2 plus years living in Africa.

Missionary Bundy in Vacation Bible School

A former educator and administrator from Prairie View A & M and Texas Southern University, she left the halls of academia, and made her home an indigenous hut that placed her close to the harvest field.  Her labor of love and dedication has impacted the following generations.  Her daughter now leading the Missions Ministry at First Met, and her grandson a missionary as a youth.

The mission team took a moment from building homes to build the people of Haiti.  On schedule, Vacation Bible School!  Planned were fun lessons and projects that would help the children get a better understanding of who God is, and how much God loves them.  Featured in the pictures is one to the many entertaining projects that provided both the message of Love but a functional piece; The Sun Visor of Love.

The students were all excited to make the visors and were entertained by the vibrant colors and the exuberant Spirit of the missionaries, who were eager to bring some joy to the life of those they touched for Christ.  Missionary Kelly Bundy enjoyed sharing the gift of Christ and creativity with the kids.  On each hat was featured the words “Jezi (heart symbol) Ayiti” whtich means Jesus Loves Haiti.
