Haiti

We as a church are excited to see what the Lord has in store for this year’s trip for Haiti. Will you join us in praying for this opportunity to go and engage the nations?

FOR THE TRIP:

  • pray that the Lord would use the team that He has assembled, each of us with our own unique talents and gifts, to love and serve the Haitians.
  • pray that through this trip and seeing the love the Lord through our team, that the Haiti youth would believe and have hope in Jesus and then be able to go evangelize their own country.

FOR THE TEAM:

  • pray that new and genuine connections would form within the team, and that through that, we are able to do good work for the Kingdom together.
  • pray for our eyes to be opened to how God has created other parts of the world, and allow us to be able to see the people that we meet through the eyes that God would see them through.

FOR THE HAITIANS:

  • pray that the Lord would be preparing the hearts of those that we will interact with starting RIGHT NOW, to be receptive to the good news of the gospel.
  • pray for a revival in Haiti!! That the love and promises of the Lord would ring true to them and there would be no denying who You are and what You have promised.

Who: You! and Living Hope Ministries in Haiti (http://www.livinghopehaiti.org)

Why: We shamelessly believe that God can use the weak and broken things of this world (us) to bring redemption and radical transformation. We also desire to follow in Christ’s footsteps as He came to seek and save the lost. So, we are going to Haiti! We hope that through this experience God would stir each of our hearts to become more engaged with spreading God’s light and glory throughout the world.

What: A week-long mission trip focused on serving for and alongside the local church in Haiti. The main purpose is to share the love of Christ with children in Haiti through a vacation Bible school program. We will be singing songs, playing games, doing crafts, and other activities with the goal of communicating the gospel to the children at Living Hope Ministries.
