Hi, I'm Karli Lang. I am from Orange City, IA and went to Northwestern College. I will be teaching 2nd grade at the JAK Academy. I've had a heart for Haiti since high school, when I visited a different part of the country with a group from my church. I knew a few past JAK teachers and had kept up with all their pictures and updates during their years at JAK, always paying attention to their posts because in the back of my mind I thought that it was something I could do someday. I met up with Marissa Wynja for coffee to hear about her experience in Haiti and after that I was confident that I needed to apply. Everyone I've met and the things I've learned about the ministry Mission-Haiti is doing has been very affirming for me that this is something the Lord has called me to and something I am so excited to be a part of. I love how this allows me to be involved in a global ministry and use the gifts God has given me! A fun fact about me is that I unintentionally swam with a shark in the ocean and also got stung by a jellyfish.
