Another team leaves August 8, 2015 for Haiti!! This team is comprised of 8 people from 3 states and 3 churches. Two of the members of the team participated in a mission trip in January – Sharon and Spencer Grizzle.
Pastor Nicolas reached out to me (Sharon) shortly after returning home from the January trip and asked if I could bring a group to do a Vacation Bible School in the summer. I told him I would pray on it. Before long I had 7 other people all in to go. 5 of them are from Trinity Lutheran Church in West Seneca, NY (Buffalo). They had been talking about doing a trip in the summer. They also mentioned their pastor told them it was time to sponsor an orphanage from a third world country. God had been planning this since we met them 2 ½ years ago when they started coming to NJ to help with Sandy Recovery. Spencer and I are going again, as is my daughter who lives in Virginia.
We will doing a Vacation Bible School with 3 orphanages and nearly 200 children. We will have a birthday party with ice cream and presents for all of them. We are going to bring God’s love, hope and joy to these children. We also will be visiting an orphanage and taking pictures to bring back to Trinity. We will start to build relationships with the children and caretakers there.
And of course, we will be visiting our very own Timoun se Espwa Demen. I am giddy with excitement about seeing the children again. Please keep our team in your prayers. Please pray for good weather and sustained health. Please also pray for the children that every day they grow in faith and in health.
We will be posting pictures and updates every day! Please follow our journey on the HCM website and HCM Facebook page.
8 people, 3 states – ONE IN CHRIST
