Mission 2016: Action-Packed!
Last summer, Hand to Hand for Haiti partnered with La Chorale Misionaire
di L'Eglise Wesleyenne de Cite Chauvel du Cap Haiten, a church mission in Haiti that organizes a two-week mission in a different
location every year. Perard Valbrun leads this mission, which gathers about 250 volunteers for multiple activities.
year, Hand to Hand for Haiti will be joining them again. Joseph and Micheline Michel and Pastor Edward Haynes will go
to Haiti for the mission in Mirebelais. The mission will be July 6-10, and will be preceded by a training conference
for the volunteers.
Activities of the 2015 mission in
Marmelade will be repeated this year:
1. Seminars to train leaders and pastors, led by Apostle Haynes
A Youth conference for about 200 young people
3. March for Jesus, a daily time of public praise
5. A group wedding for a large number of couples; a tremendous event for strengthening
6. Evangelistic meetings at night, led by Apostle Haynes and some Haitian pastors.
most exciting is that we are expecting about 1000 children for Vacation Bible School, to be held in two locations (Cap Haitien
and Mirebelais) for two days each. The children will do crafts, eat together and learn about God's love for them as
they explore the store of Jonah. These lessons can have a lifetime impact on these children, giving them a solid reason
Micheline Michel will train the teachers for the VBS. She said last year the children,
who had experienced nothing like it, were very happy with VBS. In fact, she was told that some children cambe back the
day after it was over and were disappointed that they could not have another day of VBS.
Hand to Hand for Haiti has
been asked to probide food for the children and others who attend the programs. We have some food to ship, but we need
to buy or collect the remainder.
Your prayers and gifts are requested to support this high-impact event.
Clinic Draws 130
On May 13, Mrs Perard Valbrun, leader of the mission we will be working with in July, brought
12 doctors and 2 hurses to Hand to Hand for Haiti's clinic in Carrefour-des-peres. The clinic has a building, but for
logistical purposes the large group saw paptients outside. One volunteer was an eye doctor who brought eyeglasses to
give people. The group helped about 130 patients before closing at 6 pm.
