Michael became a part of HIM in 2009. Prior to this, he pastored a church in Pennsylvania for twenty years, where he raised his family and where his first wife went to be with Jesus in 2006. He also served as pastor in Indiana, West Virginia, and Michigan. Michael married Daryl Bradbury in November of 2009. They accepted an assignment to pastor a church in the Turks and Caicos Islands, where they stayed for two and a half years. While there, they were asked to also go into Haiti several times a year to begin working with the church leaders and orphans. After returning to live the U.S., they were asked to continue the ministry in Haiti and then to become the administrators for the Haiti work. Michael has a passion for Christ and a great desire to lead others to follow Him.
Daryl served in Haiti as a missionary nurse for twenty-nine years with Evangelical Bible Mission. She left Haiti in 2002 to return to Florida, sensing that God was opening new doors in her life. Continuing her education, she received her Master of Science in Nursing from Florida Atlantic University and became a Family Nurse Practitioner. Because of her fluency in Haitian Creole, she was offered a position with a FAU clinic in West Palm Beach, serving an uninsured/underinsured population of many cultures, including Haitian. She continues to work part-time at this clinic where a high percentage of her patients are Haitian. Daryl loves working with people and considers medical work a large part of the ministry God has given her. She has a passion to help others understand the love of Christ and to follow Him wholeheartedly.
Michael and Daryl work with the HIM orphanage, school, and churches in Haiti. They provide training seminars for the teachers, pastors, and church leaders several times throughout the year. Their goal is to help these leaders be established on the firm foundation of God’s Word so they can lead their people into a deep relationship with Jesus Christ. They work with the orphans in seminars, as well as one-on-one. Assessing the spiritual, physical, and educational needs of the orphans is an ongoing task. Through frequent contact with the orphanage director, they are able to keep abreast of any needs the children may have and to seek to meet those needs.
