Haiti Mission Trip 2017

A group of five local and surrounding area residents are teaming up together and will be traveling to Haiti in August, including two members of our church.
Where are they going? Here is a link to the Mission Group they will be working with.

Supplies they are bringing: Here is a list of supplies that they hope to bring with them when they travel to Haiti. You can also find more information below.

Who is going? Here is the mission team: Lisa, Morgan, Maggie, Bridget and Matt. 

Do you want to help?

This mission group would like to collect $300 so they can purchase some food at a local market and then host a community meal for a small village in the mountains near Port de Paix.

They would also like to raise about $400 so they can bring down some supplies like the items seen in this picture.

The supplies that they would like to bring to Haiti include:
Soccer balls and soccer ball pumps
Nail polish, files, cotton pads, nail polish remover – consider the relationship that might be built from tenderly caring for the hands of a woman weary who opens up to talk about her handicapped or a young girl who, after several manicures, finally trusts enough to tell you that, at 11 years old, she’s the only one left to take care of her younger brothers and sisters. Maybe, through these relationships built on lovingly serving others, much needed help can be received. Trust can be built. Hearts can be changed. And God can be glorified! Yes, glorified even through nail polish. 🙂
Sunday school supplies: crayons, markers, card stock, glue sticks
Diapers size 4
Baby shampoo
Large Ziploc bags
Trash bags (13 gallon STRONG)
Garlic salt 
Seasoning salt
Baby Formula –  (sensitive) because some Mamas don’t get the opportunity to eat which causes struggles with feeding baby. We have to get baby healthy AND feed mom.
Feminine pads –There is a unique component to being female in a third world country. Sometimes you can’t go to school if you don’t have the right tools. This goes beyond paper and pencils.
We also have an Amazon Wish List for those friends and family who want to help but can’t attend on Aug 6th:  http://bit.ly/HaitiSupply2017
