From March 24-30, 2018 a team from Faith Evangelical Presbyterian Church will be traveling once again to Gressier, Haiti.
Gressier is a suburb of Port-au-Prince with a population of approximately 25,000. As you may remember, the nation of Haiti was devastated in January 2010 by a catastrophic 7.0 earthquake. This earthquake killed over 200,000 people and left more than 1.5million homeless. Over 50% of the buildings in Gressier were destroyed, most of these were homes. Haiti is still in a state of repair and rebuilding. On our trip, there are several projects and communities that we serve. Some things we are looking forward to doing are agricultural training; English training; Bible study; Musical education; and possibly a 2-day retreat for our missionaries. We always work to make certain that our time in Haiti is meaningful and impactful, but we have also learned to be "fluid," as God often has a different plan for us (and His plans are always perfect!).
We would love for you to be a part of our support team. First, you can help support our team in prayer as we prepare for our trip, as we travel, for safety in our work, and that our ministry will be productive. Another way to help is to join in partnership with us financially. Through this site, we intend to gain financial support toward our mission. Any and all contributions you can give would benefit our team greatly and would be a blessing to us. Your donations will go directly to supporting the people of Haiti in the following ways:
- Purchasing musical instruments for our music ministry to school-aged children
- Purchasing building materials for building meeting spaces for outreach ministries
- Purchasing sports equipment for neighborhood children living in and around the area we serve
- Purchasing outreach supplies (school supplies, arts and crafts, etc) for neighborhood outreach ministries like vacation bible school
Donations made on this site are not tax-deductible. If you would like to make a tax deductible donation and receive a receipt, please contact a teammate personally or you may contact the Faith EPC church office at 703-971-3800.
