Churches Working Together Sharing Jesus
5-Year Haiti Partnership Comes to an End...
We began working in Haiti in 2010, just a few months after the devastating earthquake. In 2011, our association voted to begin an official 5-year partnership with Pastor Gaetan Alcegaire and the Foundation Yaveh Shamma for the Children Orphanage. As of September 30, 2016, our 5-Year Partnership in Haiti was completed. During this time, our association responded in a great way to the needs of the children in this orphanage. Funds were provided for food, clothing, education and shelter. Funds were also given to build a multi-purpose church building for the community. In addition, several mission teams (Construction, VBS/Evangelistic, Medical) traveled to Haiti during the partnership.
In December 2016, all remaining Haiti funds were distributed. We thank the churches of the association for responding so greatly to the needs in Haiti.
