Mission with Haiti

posted May 28, 2014, 3:07 PM by Jamie Washam

July 26-Aug 2, members of our church will travel to Haiti for our mission trip. The entire church will not be making the journey, but the entire church is needed to make the mission trip a success. Firstly, we need your prayers, for those who will take the journey, and particularly for those we will encounter there. We plan to spend our time at several childrens’ homes. Most of or time will be spent at Wings of Hope, a home in the mountains that serves physically and developmentally disabled children and adults. If you would like to send anything with our mission team, we welcome the items listed below. Please speak with me, if you’ve other questions about the mission. You can find out more about the homes we will be visiting at http://www.sjfamilyhaiti.org/ and http://www.heartswithhaiti.org/.  Again, thank you for your prayers and support.

 

Peace,

 

Pastor Jamie
