Remembering Tim 2018 by Scott Wilson (HMM Exec. Dir.)
May 24, 2018

It has been four years. It sounds like a lot when you say it. It seems like a short time when you think about it. Four years ago my friend, Tim Dortch, passed away. Tim was the one who answered God’s calling to start HMM. Tim was the one that invited me into this incredible....

Whether it be in Mississippi or in another country, I have always felt the Lord has blessed with me a serving heart. I try to be available to help others if I have the abilities. But when it came to short-term mission trips, I have always been somewhat of a skeptic. Trust me, I never....

“In mission work, it’s very important to have educated church leaders to help lead the churches for them to be sustained like they need to be,” says Bro. Gene Gillis, Interim Pastor Immanuel Baptist Church (Columbus, Miss.). It was this desire to educate and empower local church leaders that resulted in the launching of the....

Happy Father’s Day
June 15, 2015

Father’s Day for Norman Ford, DMD this year will likely be one he never forgets. It’s not often that a dad gets to spend this special day seeing his children living out Jesus’ command to love God and love people (Mark 12:30-31). “It’s going to be an amazing experience to see them let God use....

It was September 2011 when I first went to the Dominican Republic and Haiti with Hispaniola Mountain Ministries (HMM). I immediately fell in love with the two countries, their cultures and the work that was being done there. Shortly after, I was invited to serve on the HMM Board and within less than a year, I had....

The summer was approaching. Graduate school was ending, and I only had one more summer of freedom before I began my experiences as a dental student. I honestly was seeking a job that would keep me in Mississippi for the summer, but we all know that our plans and God’s plans might not also be....

I went to Barahona last year with HMM and fell in love with the people there; I knew I would be going back soon. I have always wanted to go on a medical mission and was told a nurse was needed in Haiti for the August 2014 trip. I was scared to death to go....

“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” – Matthew 25:40 For the past year, I’d looked online at mission trips through my home church, just somewhat sporadically. I felt God wanted me to use my career....

I have had the opportunity to make two trips to Haiti. The first trip was a family trip. In my mind I thought we were going to help the poor and change lives – we did help the poor, but the lives that were changed was ours. I could have never prepared my heart for....

During the month of October 2013, my husband and I had the opportunity to travel to Barahona, Dominican Republic and spend time with the Hispanola Mountain Ministries staff. Leading up to our trip, we were extremely busy and focused on our work, daily goals and checklists. Our departure date arrived more quickly than we realized, and suddenly,....

A while back, I was going through a Bible study called The 7 Experiment (by Jen Hatmaker) and was challenged by a quote she used from author Shane Claibourn, “I had come to see that the great tragedy in the church is not that rich Christians do not care about the poor but that rich....

As I looked back through my journal from our trip, there were several things that stood out to me that I would like to share. Many times people will tell you that when serve on a mission team, we ourselves are changed just as much the people we serve, and I would have to agree. ....

Deuteronomy 15:11 “Therefore I command you, “You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy, and to the poor….   Growing up my parents instilled in me a responsibility to serve others, and in college God placed within me a heart for missions. Over the years, however, I allowed “life” and my pursuit....

The week I spent in the Dominican Republic was one of the greatest experiences in my life. It opened my eyes to see the need of Jesus in every corner of the world, not only in the Dominican Republic but with our neighbors, co-workers and family members. It taught me to love deeper and to....

I am very blessed to have found a career in emergency medicine that I absolutely love. The adrenaline in caring for critical patients is a passion and dream that I am so thankful to be living. However, nursing in an area where health care is as available as picking up a phone can easily lead to....

But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ. By grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not of your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result....

My week in Haiti was the most heart breaking and life changing experience of my life. Other than the births of my two boys, I have never loved so deeply or so quickly. At the same time, I’ve never felt so overwhelmed by the need surrounding me. The children stole my heart from the time....

I have been to Haiti twice and I am absolutely in love with the people there. It brings me more joy than I can express to be able and be blessed myself, by helping the people. The first time I went, along with some of the kids from my youth group, we helped clear the....
