Brian & Lynette Smith

BRIAN and LYNETTE serve among Haitians and Dominicans in partnership with Mission Maranatha Inc. to build sustainable ministries on the island of Hispaniola (the Dominican Republic and Haiti). Living in the Dominican Republic and drawing from their experiences in Haiti, they are working to build strong relationships with church and community leaders as they encourage existing ministries and seek creative ways to accomplish God’s vision alongside communities. Brian is using his developed skills in business management to teach budgeting and step-by-step goal achievement. Lynette utilizes her skills as a doula to accompany and listen to the stories of the community members. Both incorporate the basis of Asset Based Community Development to empower people to be wholistically well (mind, body, spirit) and reach out to others in ways that speak love, preserve dignity, and create unity as the body of Christ.
