Allegheny District EFCA Mission Team Update: The Future of Haiti –Never Forgetting Why We Serve

What is the answer for the future of the children of Haiti? “The gospel of Christ and education” says Pastor Henoc Lucien, the EFCA pastor of four churches in the Cap-Haitien area and Vision of Hope Ministries missionary.

Although the team did not get to work on the planned security wall on this trip, the goal of the Allegheny District Haiti Initiative to assist in establishing a Christian university for northern Haiti continues.

For now, the team is happy to have made progress on tiling the floors of the new dormitory for future work teams. Please continue to pray for the future of Haiti and the ongoing ministries of Vision of Hope in northern Haiti. Pray also for Billy, Brian, and Chuck as they return home on Sunday.

Update: Allegheny District EFCA Help Build the Wall Mission Trip

Please pray for our church member Earl Harris, shown here as he arrived in Haiti on Monday. Earl is now in Miami and will soon board a flight to return home to address medical symptoms which brought about his early departure from the mission trip. Pastor  Dennis Nezrick will meet Earl at Cleveland Hopkins Airport to accompany him home. It will be a late night for both of them.
