Having grown up in Haiti as a missionary kid and then spending 25 years as a missionary living full-time in rural South Haiti, Dan has a unique understanding of the needs of the Haitian people, communities, and churches. As a co-founder of Reciprocal Ministries International (RMI) in 1988 and VP/Haiti Field Leader of RMI for 17 years, Dan has been able to bring vision and leadership to RMI as it grew. Since becoming President in 2006 and moving RMI’s US office in Fort Myers, FL, he has had the opportunity to continue this vision by seeing new programs and innovation having great impact in south Haiti through RMI. Currently RMI is feeding over 10,000 kids a day in school and impacting over 150 communities in south Haiti. He and his wife, Debbie, have two adult children and two grandchildren. Although Dan grew up riding enduro motorcycles in Haiti and used that mode of transportation all during his service in Haiti, he has fulfilled his dream of getting his US motorcycle license and enjoys riding his 2005 Kawasaki 1600 Vulcan Nomad with the motorcycle club from his church. He also enjoys reading and cooking. He recently took up kayaking and enjoys paddling around the backwaters of Southwest Florida as time permits.

Cherline Louissaint spent more than a decade working in entertainment as a Public Relations
specialist and Global Brand Strategist. These roles provided her with the opportunity to work and travel
with various leading international recording artists, athletes, and other entertainment
figures. Providing clients with services that included public relations, branding, merchandising, and
event coordination. Little did she know that life would quickly change her upward trajectory.
During the peak of her career, Cherline’s mother had a sudden health crisis which caused her to take an
abrupt step away from a rising career. At the time, she did not hesitate stating, “there was
no doubt in my mind that stepping away from my career was what I needed to do. Taking the time
off gave me a fresh perspective on what was important
and allowed me to think about what I wanted from the next chapter of my life.”
Incidentally, the next chapter wrote itself accidentally on purpose. With the launching of an online
fitness challenge, she stumbled into a new career path. Taking the frustration that she felt with the
current healthcare system and pouring it into acquiring health and fitness knowledge to heal her Mom
and help others not go through the health trials she had experienced. “All
I kept hearing was if she had done this, ate that, moved like this. It was all preventable, which caused me
to ask myself, why are so many of us dying from preventable diseases?'”
Never really intending to actually take on clients, but to provide information that created awareness and
inspired others to be intentional concerning their health. However, more and
more people would ask to work out with her and she realized how
much she loved the work she was doing. Soon, she began hosting events, educating about fitness,
leading group classes, and training people 1 — on — 1 became a side hustle. She had become a
communication professional by day and fitness crusader by night on an epic quest in
the realm of health & fitness — and then Increase the Peach, Inc. was born.
Cherline earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations from
Florida Gulf Coast University. Currently, she provides strategic support for
a variety of clients via public relations, email marketing, social media, advertising, and
other services. While implementing the same services to Increase the Peach Health & Fitness Studio,
which opened its doors in October of 2019. When she’s not running her business, she serves as
the director of non-profit, Maranatha Community Center, Inc, a 501(c)3 free clinic serving residents of
Southwest Florida and doing missions in Haiti, sending hospital supplies and other donations.

There are many variations of passages of Lorem Ipsum available, but the majority have suffered alteration in some form, by injected humour, or randomised words which don’t look even slightly believable. If you are going to use a passage of Lorem Ipsum, you need to be sure there isn’t anything embarrassing hidden in the middle of text. All the Lorem Ipsum generators on the Internet tend to repeat predefined chunks as necessary, making this the first true generator on the Internet. It uses a dictionary of over 200 Latin words, combined with a handful of model sentence structures, to generate Lorem Ipsum which looks reasonable. The generated Lorem Ipsum is therefore always free from repetition, injected humour, or non-characteristic words etc.

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.
