Upcoming Teams to Haiti – October 24 through early December, 2015

I will be travelling October 24th with a team of 5 from Cross Connection EMC in Chilliwack, BC. This team is being led by Elaine Hilz.  They have been fundraising for the Security Wall to be built around the Clinic/Maternity in Gens de Nantes, which is located in northeast Haiti.  This is a project partnership with Albright EMC in Winnipeg.

Meet Rachel Harris who will be travelling with me on this month long ministry to Haiti.

Rachel Harris has recently graduated with a degree in nursing.

Rachel (on R) has recently graduated with a degree in nursing.

Two teams from Ontario, Trinity EMC in Waterloo and Highview Community in Kitchener will be continuing the project that they began in 2014.  This project is also a Security Wall around a large property in Pignon; the future plan for the property being “housing for seniors.”  Trinity and Highview plan to be in Haiti, November 10 to 21.

Two members of the Haiti Partnership Leadership Team from Albright EMC in Winnipeg will join Lou Geense and travel to Cape Haitian and on to Gens de Nantes, Haiti, November 22 to 25.  The purpose of this short trip is to strengthen the partnership and to explore new ways to make it effective.

A small group from Macoun EMC in SK will be in Haiti November 21 to December 6 to complete a church building that they had begun last spring.

Rachel and I will connect with each of the teams.  We will also be meeting with different members of the AEM (Association des Eglises Missionnaires) Executive Committee for updates on their ministry as well as those responsible for the various ongoing projects.

We will return to Canada November 28.  As internet access is available and as we have time, we will attempt to add a few blog posts.  Check in periodically to find out “Where in Haiti are Marilyn and Rachel.”

Please pray for each of these teams as they prepare to travel.  Pray for the partners with whom they will work in Haiti.  Pray for the nation of Haiti – elections are being held October 25.  Pray for the relationship between the nations of Haiti and the Dominican Republic especially the area at the border crossing – Dajabon and Ouanaminthe.  Pray for Rachel and myself as we facilitate meetings, connect with the teams and work in the clinics.

Thanks.  Marilyn
