Meet the Mathis Family

Our family consists of Dave, Sharron, Josh who is 31 and Quinn who is 13. We have been married for almost 31 amazing, challenging, character building years.

We arrived in Haiti in May of 2014 to begin work with ReachGlobal in Gressier.

Like many families, we were active in our church, our community and with our family. We had a passion for and continue to be involved in discipleship making on several levels.  We’d been very blessed as we served on the local mission field with Calvary joining God in His work, witnessing transformation in the lives of people around us.  

However, through prayer, people and circumstances God drew us to the international mission field.  We had prayed that God would make the “desires of His heart, the desires of our hearts” Psalm 37:3-5.  He faithfully did just that, teaching us to love people, to be available…to go.  He hadn’t just been preparing us, He’d also been at work in our daughter Quinn’s heart as well.

Choosing to follow God has been a choice we’ve wrestled with. It isn’t easy for some of our family or friends, yet we trust God to bring comfort and provide peace within us, as well as those we love. It’s become increasingly challenging as we minister to aging parents from afar.

As the City Team Leaders for ReachGlobal Haiti, it’s our desire to use our years on this earth for His purposes.  We hope that this team might be part of something extraordinary here in Haiti, impossible without God, submitting to His will, following His direction.

Lespwa fè viv! Where there's hope there's life.

Our heartbeat is to disciple ‘disciple makers’ and invest in leadership development through holistic ministry, seeking God’s wisdom as to how to "help without hurting" in a country where aid has created dependency. Si Dye vle (God willing) we’d like to be a part of breaking that cycle. Our focus is resourcing national partners through relationships, with the intent of empowering them to meet their own needs and the needs of their communities.

We’re looking forward to staying connected with you and sharing our journey. To receive emails and/or newsletters contact sharron.mathis@efca.org. To follow our blog www.makinghaitiourhome or catch more blogs here.
