BENEFITING: FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH
In June 2016, a group of Haitians and Americans from the American Baptist Churches from Boston and New Jersey will be going to Haiti. The trip will run from June 16 through June 25.
The Aim of the trip if threefold. The first is to continue the reconstruction efforts begun on the Baptist Church of Damien and the Baptist Church of Latremblais, Croix-des-Bouquets. Those two church buildings were severely damaged by the massively destructive earthquake that happened in 2010. The second is to provide ministry training for pastors and lay leaders that have not had access to seminary by offering toolbox for ministry training sessions, teaching everything from practical ministry to preaching and theology. The third part of the trip is to collect resources, from blankets and pencils to toothpaste and hygiene resources.
We need to raise about 30,000 to purchase supplies for the repair of the church. Please give generously. Every dollar helps.
