Sorry for not posting for awhile. Our family was in Minnesota for the holidays. But I want to bring you up-to-date on what is happening now.
On Saturday, our first GAiN team of 2012 arrived in Haiti. The team is made of up folks from two churches: Messiah Lutheran from Texas and Hillside Lutheran from New Jersey. This team has raised the funds to purchase and distribute 113 water filter systems to people living in Onaville. As you may recall, Onaville is the largest displacement camp in Haiti. Nearly 220,000 people live there as a result of the earthquake. They are a great group with a heart to serve!
Here are some photos of the team. They are getting a great view from the top of the pre-school building, working with water filters, playing with kids at the NVM sponsored children’s home and riding to the ministry site in the taptap (the Haitian mode of transporting people!)
Please be praying for this team this week as they continue their good work. Thanks so much!
