Giving her heart to Haiti


“Think of Phoebe Keeran as a modern-day Mother Teresa.”
That’s how reporter James Green described the 32-year-old church member in a feature for a cable station in this Canadian province.
Keeran, a member of the Shelbourne Street Church of Christ in Victoria, British Columbia, has made two mission trips to Haiti — one of them for three months. She was in Kona, Hawaii, when she heard news of the 7.0-magnitude earthquake that devastated the capital, Port-au-Prince.
Just down the street in Hawaii was the headquarters of Youth with a Mission, an international, interdenominational volunteer organization. Keeran signed up to work with the group in Haiti.
In the cable feature, Green described Keeran as “a very spiritual woman, deeply in touch with her Christianity.”
This year Keeran plans to visit the African nation of Mozambique for two months of ministry training. She hopes to return to Haiti and launch an orphanage there.
“Please continue to pray with us that God will be enthroned over this nation,” Keeran wrote of Haiti on her blog, “that we can stand in the gap, as one body, the Bride of Christ.”
