Kayla has been living in Haiti full-time since June 2012. Her plans to stay in Haiti became quite permanent when she married her husband, Webert, on January 4, 2014. They have since adopted their three oldest children and welcomed Rubie to the crew in 2016 and Zion in 2019. After seven full years serving on the ground, the Lord opened doors for them to transition Stateside to focus on their children’s education; to grow Rosie’s online and Stateside platform; and to continue spreading awareness of the work being done in Haiti. The Raymond’s are seeking financial support for their traveling expenses back and forth to Haiti.

Taunya DeWeerd is originally from Sioux Center, Iowa and has been living in Haiti at Tytoo Gardens since June 2013. She was running her own daycare and her love for kids gave her a desire to travel to Haiti and visit orphanages. After getting to know the Grooters family and becoming more familiar with Tytoo Gardens, doors opened and she moved to Haiti to oversee the care of the children in the orphanage. Her day-to-day responsibilities are to oversee the care of the children, direct and supervise the staff and organize events for the children. With 36 children, there is always lots for her to do! Taunya is seeking personal support so she can continue serving at Tytoo Gardens.
Cassidy has studied art, worked as a photographer, graphic designer, touring personal assistant, and even barista. But relentlessly, her heart has been tethered to global missions. Having previously lived in Haiti for a year with a different organization, she returned in the late summer of 2019 to serve with Touch of Hope! Touch of Hope and Rosie’s Boutique meet her passions for fighting to keep families together, empowering young women, and most fundamentally, inviting others to know the love of Christ. She is helping at Rosie’s with day-to-day tasks as well as creative projects. Seeing the threads of her different experiences weave together, we couldn’t be more thrilled to have Cassidy serve with us. Join Cassidy as she follows Jesus by supporting her financially.
Amanda moved to Haiti in the beginning of 2016 with a ministry located in Arcahaie. She was using her education degree to start a children’s program/school. She fell in love with Haiti during that time and has a passion for helping children. After completing that project, in the fall of 2017, she began teaching children for multiple missionary families, including the Raymond family. That was her introduction to Touch of Hope. She continues teaching missionary kids, while also helping at both Rosie’s and Tytoo Gardens. Her work with Touch of Hope varies based on the need. She has helped with anything from teaching English at the orphanage to accounting work. She is seeking financial support to continue working and living in Haiti.
