As the Haiti team begins to make final preparations for the October trip, we want to thank the congregation for the outpouring of gifts that have supplied all of the buckets and filters for our Clean Water Project! Because of you, 100 families in the community of Mizak, Haiti will now have access to clean water. Your gift will literally change their lives.
Many have asked of other ways to partner with the team. The group will lead a VBS experience for the children of the community. Donations of pencils, lined notebooks, drawing paper, and crayons would be appreciated.
The team will be in partnership with the HAPI Project, which is multifaceted and provides health clinic services for the community as well as economic development and job training for artists. The artists are in need of used or new size 34 waist or larger jeans to make aprons. (See example apron in the photo below.)
They also need brightly colored 100 percent cotton fabric with designs. All of these items will bless, educate, and help to empower the people of Haiti.
Please have your donations dropped off at the church office no later than Sunday, October 12. If you have questions, please contact DeAndrea Dare.
