Everyone on the Dayspring Ministries leadership team has been to Haiti more than once, has a passion for the gospel of Jesus Christ and a desire to see the Word of God preached in word and deed through-out Haiti. All Dayspring leaders are volunteers who donate their time and their resources generously.
Carol Hawthorne is from Lake Hopatcong, New Jersey. She and her husband, Bruce, founded Dayspring Ministries in 1984, and Carol has been executive director of Dayspring ever since. She has been to Haiti 30+ times and is proud to be considered "Haitian" by her friends at the Mission. She and Bruce adopted a little Haitian boy many years ago, who is the youngest of their seven children. Carol enjoys interacting with the other members of the "Dayspring Family" here in the U.S. and with her friends at the Mission churches, schools and My Father's House Orphanage in Haiti.
