Haiti Mission Update
The next Missions trip to Haiti is February 18-26. Twenty six travelers from 5 CMP churches, a PCA church in Las Vegas, along with 5 people from outside our denomination who are exploring ministry in Haiti will be doing medical work and children’s ministry in Cambry, Charette, and Jeremie.
Thanks to generous donations from a few presbytery churches and other charitable organizations, they’re well stocked with medical supplies and medicines. They are hoping to hand carry notes (translated into Creole by our friends at New Hope Haitian Community Church) for the orphans at Charette who just this month began receiving financial support from 132 donors among our presbytery’s church members in 4 different churches, as well as the PCA church in Las Vegas. That support will provide food, clothing, schooling, and improved medical care, as well as increased staffing for house moms and ongoing training for them in childcare issues.
Please pray for the team as they make final preparations and as they meet needs in Haiti next month. If you’d like to get daily updates on their work while they are there, please email Ann Powers to get on the distribution list.
Next trip is scheduled for July 22-30. The commitment date for that trip will be mid-April; watch this space for more information!
