God’s Abundant Provision

It seems like an eternity ago since we started raising funds to move to Haiti.  Here is a little recap of this year:

  • Made a trip to Haiti in October 2017 with the Board of Directors to seek God’s will for the next steps in coming alongside Bill & Jenn.
  • Visited Red Bridge early December 2017 to make introductions and meet with the Missions committee.
  • Officially commissioned by the Board of Directors on January 5th, 2018 – Note this was 15 years to the day that Red Bridge officially commissioned the Campbells in 2003.
  • Started sending out information about HHH and us on January 6th.
  • Received our 1st donation from a long-time friend of the family, Randy Reed, February 1st.
  • We made our first visit to a church to present on February 25, 2018.  (First Baptist Grain Valley) Our home church for almost eight years when we lived in the Kansas City area.  Up until this point the first six weeks of fundraising went by slowly, in fact we had not received any calls or emails from our flyers and our attempts to contact potential supporters had not produced a single appointment.
  • From February 25 thru June 24th we only had one Sunday that we were not presenting at a church!


  • That also meant that thru those four months we have raised approximately 80% of our funds needed!

God has blessed us throughout this experience.  We have been touched by the warmth and open arms folks have extended to us as we visited church after church after church.  We hope that our presentations have helped bring a better understanding of what HHH does and what we hope to do when we reach the field later this year.  Thank you for your prayers, gifts and hospitality.  

We are in the final push of fundraising and still need to gather that last 20%, but we have seen God’s provision as friends and strangers have generously supported us and have no doubts that we will make it shortly.  We are excited to begin the planning stage for the move to Haiti.

So What is Deputation Anyway?

Heidi and I have been asked to go around and raise support for our ministry.  Ministry folks call this deputation.  It involves countless hours of writing letters, calling churches, sending emails to family and friends, essentially selling ourselves to both known and unknown people and groups.  In order to help communicate our mission and goals to people we have spent numerous hours creating two documents, links are included in this post – please take a look and let us know what you think of them.

What you may not already know is that Heidi and I have been working on our ministry focus for a year now.  We have been getting regular counseling from our pastors and the board at HHH.  It has taken a lot of work to get where we are today – just starting out looking for supporters.  Here is the result of about 4 months worth of work and refining: sandbox graphic

Detailed in the “sandbox” is our purpose and proposition statement: Raise up young leaders living for Christ, to revive Haiti.  Also shown is our mission statement, guiding principles, preferred culture and ministry focus. We developed this as vision communication for you that defines our purpose at HHH, Inc. We envision this will provide direction for our family and help us to avoid distractions.  I think this is about our 5th version of this document.

Here is a copy of our newsletter that we are sending out as fast as we can print them:Frazier Family Ministry Newsletter

These are the first impressions that new people are getting when we introduce ourselves and our mission.  We have been following these up with phone calls and emails and have already scheduled dates to visit churches over the next two months!
