The Trip to Haiti is August 4 - 11, 2018
Join me, Joe McDowell, DOM on a mission trip to Haiti. We will travel to the Port au Prince neighborhood of Delmas 19 to work with the "Source of Light Center." The Center was established in response to the devastating earthquake of 2010.
An information meeting regarding the trip to Haiti will be on Sunday, April, 22 at 2:30PM at the Association Office. The team for this trip will consist of a little over 10 people. There will be some construction projects; teaching basic maintance skills to locals who help take care of the Source of Light Center’s facilities, interacting with children at the children’s home and other activities to engage the community for Christ. A completed application and a $100 deposit will secure your spot on this team. The trip will cost approximately $1,300 and the association will be providing some assistance with the cost.
