A helping hand in Haiti
McMinnville native Bliss Zechman cuddles with one of the many children in the Neply, Haiti orphanage. She and other Phi Mu Sorority sisters spent several days there volunteering in various settings.
My Life Speaks is a public non-profit organization whose goal is to develop a Christ-centered community in Neply, Haiti through orphan care and prevention, education and public health. The idea was sparked by Mike Wilson in 2003 when he visited a missions facility in Haiti, only to return in 2005 with a group of teenagers.Local resident Bliss Zechman and a group of Phi Mu Sorority sisters volunteered in Neply through the My Life Speaks program May 16-23. It was a life-changing experience for Zechman and the group.
