The 2013 Lifesong Haiti team arrived on Hispaniola island today. More specifically they settled in the city of Jeremie. The team will have a two-pronged ministry: medical care and equipping of the house moms who care for orphans. We are especially excited about the house mom training since it’s the first time it’s being done, drawing head caregivers from all over the country. If you want to improve orphan care then what better way than to equip and encourage those who care for them?
Our church’s first trip to Haiti was just last year but since then our partnership with locally-based El Shaddai Ministries has grown quickly in love and vision. It’s been thrilling to see the Father raise up a new team of twelve to break new ground for the Kingdom this year!
Please pray for Dana, Elaine, Cindy, Linda, Christy, Julie, Brad, Martin, Brian, Sean, Craig and Gregg. Pray for their safety as there is a storm and some flooding there. Pray for the power of the gospel to be evident through their words and deeds.
