Beth's Mission Trip for Reach Haiti
Organized by: Beth Ponferrada
EVENT DATE Aug 03, 2014
I will be going on a mission trip to Haiti with others from my church, New Life Vineyard Church in Hamilton, Ohio. While in Haiti we will be volunteering with Reach Haiti Ministries. Their mission is "to glorify God by creating multiplying communities of obedient believers, training strong Christian leaders while rescuing abandoned and orphaned children and preparing them for life."
While in Haiti during the first week of August 2014, we will be volunteering at the orphanage and helping out with a conference for Simple Church leaders from across Haiti. These leaders start small churches and mentor new church leaders who will then start their own churches. As someone with a psychology background, I will be helping to train 4 Haitian leaders to reach out into the poor mountain community of Forte de Pins to gather information on how each family can be helped.
Our church has already raised enough money to construct a church/school and a water reservoir for Forte de Pins. We have purchased land to build a medical clinic as well as a bus for the orphanage.
I am raising funds to help me get to Haiti so that I can follow God's calling. Even though I do not currently work in the mental health field, I felt God tugging at my heart when I heard there was need for someone with my background to help train the men who will be working at the church/school. I greatly appreciate any support, especially prayer support, as I prepare for this trip.
Thank you and God bless you!
