Responder Life’s Haiti mission team completed its 8th police training and service trip in November (2014). Five trainers instructed police and security officers from the communities of Carrefour and Jacmel. While the trainers instructed, a service team of six individuals served at a home for widows, and an orphanage for boys and girls.
When asked if the training team “was trying to change the Haitian police culture” by one of the trainees, mission leader Tom McGranahan replied “We are hoping to impact individuals so they can impact their co-workers.” McGranahan is a lieutenant with the Beaverton Oregon Police Department, and a veteran of several Responder Life mission trips to Haiti. 2014’s mission trip like others surfaced many stories of changed lives.
