Open Teams 2017

Stepping out of your comfort zone to join a Forward Edge Open Team is not easy—but it can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life: “We made LIFELONG friends on our ‘open team’ trip to Haiti. I HIGHLY recommend joining an open team! It’ll change your life!” – Kelly Clark Antrim. Open teams give anyone the opportunity to join an already-planned mission trip. We have open teams going to Cuba, Mexico, and Haiti this summer!

 
 

From Hood to Coast to Haiti

Everything changed for the Belizaire family after the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Mr. Belizaire was killed, and the family’s home was destroyed. Mrs. Belizaire has three children, and struggled to make ends meet by selling clothing on the street. The Belizaire children (Ralph, Carl, and Carla) were sponsored by generous friends through Forward Edge, which provided them with education, safe water and food—but without a safe home, it was difficult to stay healthy and keep up in school.
