Meet Sean

Founder & President

Sean Forrest began his ministry as a full-time youth minister in Connecticut. In January of 2000, Sean founded Movin’ With The Spirit, Inc. (MWTS), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to boldly proclaiming God’s eternal truth and love. Since then, he has had the opportunity to speak to hundreds of thousands of teens and adults across the country and internationally.

Called to serve God’s poor in a radical way while on a mission trip to Haiti in 2002, Sean returned to the States and mobilized a team to help alleviate the suffering of the Haitian people. Aptly named Haiti180, the organization is on fire to help turn the impoverished island nation around.

Sean and his group built and now operate a vibrant orphanage and have been housing, feeding, and caring for children and villagers in desperate need of support. They have also constructed and are running a state-of-the-art school, are building a medical facility, and making plans for an elderly home.

Join Sean and the Haiti180 team on this powerful mission — and help to turn Haiti around.

Katie Herrmann has been living in Haiti for the past four years, faithfully serving the mission. She grew up in Steubenville, Ohio, in a large family, so caring for the many children at Kay Mari is a perfect fit. Katie graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville with a degree in History, but knew it was the Lord’s calling to go and serve the people of Haiti. She has boldly and lovingly answered that call.

She would much rather listen than speak, and one of her favorite things to do is sit with the elderly in their tiny, beautiful homes eating mangos and listening to them reminisce about life. Most days around the orphanage you can hear Katie singing — her soothing voice the background music to everyone’s routine. Screen Shot 2013-07-22 at 5.14.06 PM

Katie is heroic in her selflessness and truly is a light anywhere she goes. Not much can fluster her; not even having all 23 kids in her care at church. Katie is a homebody, and once she settles in somewhere, her dedication is unmatchable — a reality not lost on the children, who love and trust her with all their hearts. Come meet Katie and see her beauty and faithfulness first hand, as she does her part to help the children of Kay Mari and all of those in the villages to know God’s love and to thrive.
