Ann Amster- Mission Team Coordinator
Ann Amster came on board with CH in May of 2013 and works part-time to oversee the travel and orientation for all of our volunteer teams. In addition, she coordinates all of the supplies that need to go to Haiti with teams as well. When you consider that so many items/supplies can’t be purchased in Haiti, you can imagine that Ann spends much time shopping and packing bags for all of the teams to carry down as well as delivering them to various team leaders. She also is in charge of all print materials and extra events! Ann and her husband, Troy, are long time members of First Baptist Montgomery and have always been very active in the Student Ministry. They have three children and the entire family loves to spend time at CH and go every chance they get! Ann can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or 334-202-2714.

Scott & Allison Payne- Mission Team Coordinators and Hosts
Scott and Allison Payne are from Spartanburg, SC and are members of Anderson Mill Road Baptist Church. Scott made his first trip to Haiti with CH in 2012, and Allison joined him on a later trip. After many trips to Jacmel, they sensed God calling them to Haiti full-time. They contacted us in 2013 to share this news and asked that we join them in praying about God’s call. I am excited to say that after more trips to Haiti that God confirmed this calling over and over. Scott and Allison officially joined the CH staff in the summer of 2015. They have a love for the Haitian people and sharing the Gospel. Their easy-going but hard working personalities make them ideal for hosting and coordinating mission teams.
Ken & Maria Peters- Directors of Children’s Hope Orphanage
Ken and Maria Peters became directors of the orphanage in Jacmel in January 2014. The Peters are from Canada but have much experience living and working in Haiti. They are fluent in Haitian Creole and have four adopted Haitian children. They worked in previous orphanages and have learned much about the Haitian culture through their experience and relationships. They are well suited for their positions in that Ken graduated from Columbia Bible College with a Bachelors of Arts in Youth Work and has varied experience working with children as a youth pastor, counselor, and mental health worker. Maria graduated from Peace River Bible Institute in Christian Studies and then obtained an RN degree. They work very well with the children and staff as well as others in the community. Our children are thriving under their care.
