Mari Bednar

Haiti

Hi everyone! My name is Mari Bednar and I am from Little Rock, Arkansas! I am super excited to be on board with Mission-Haiti! I have had a longing to work overseas for a while now, but when I think about how this opportunity came about, I immediately think of how faithful God is, and how His timing in perfect!
When I was in college, I decided to get my degree in Nutrition and Dietetics from Ouachita Baptist University , simply because I had a longing to work overseas with malnutrition one day. As the Lord continued to work in my life, I pursued my Masters in Christian Education from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary In Louisville, KY, while working at a church here in Little Rock.
I fell in love with Haiti ever since I went on a short term mission trip in 2016; and I’ve wanted to go back ever since. I am looking forward to so many things, and I am thanking God for the opportunity to join the Mission-Haiti team!
