Missionary in Haiti
Ed Lockett Jr. made his first trip to Haiti in 1986 with a team. Forever changed after seeing the needs spiritually and physically, he prayed about what his response should be. After a couple more short term trips the doors opened for him to live in Haiti on a long term basis. Since 1995 Haiti has been his earthly home. The work there is very diverse and involves many communities but mainly focuses on churches, schools, feeding, and VBS. Also much ministry is done from his home there, referred to as the Happy House. The ministry consistently focuses on the relational aspect. While they do some material construction, they mostly focus on building people through up close and personal long term relationships. Also he has made yearly trips to Honduras since 2004 where he is involved in the same type of ministry.
