Mission Team Dates Announced
Orlando FL – ICDM director Yvan Pierre will be in Haiti July 13-31 working with field leadership and U.S. teams. A team from Lexington KY is already on site teaching English in Bayonnais.
Clean water for Bayonnais is the focus of a team from Kentucky that also left for Haiti July 13. Their mission: to drill a well and install a purification system to provide safe, clean water for the people of Bayonnais. Though water scooped from streams and pools may look clean, it may be teeming with disease-causing organisms. With the recent outbreaks of cholera, the importance of safe drinking water is receiving new emphasis throughout Haiti.
Kentucky team members will also work on Center of Hope construction. Center of Hope Construction teams are being organized throughout the fall months, with the goal of completing the Center of Hope by the end of December. Dedication of the facility is scheduled for January 2012. Here are the dates:
- August 29 – Team from Pennsylvania
- September 24 – Team from New Jersey
- First week of October
- Last week of October
- November and December
For information about the Pennsylvania team trip, contact Cathy Wallick.
For information about other teams, please contact Yvan Pierre.
The Hope for Haiti team will be in Bayonnais January 21 to February 6 to conduct teaching and medical ministries to families, women, children, teens and young adults, and to participate in the Center of Hope dedication. To find out about joining this team, contact Verna Smith.
