Haiti Mission Trip 2015
Layette Ministry – Praying for babies under 2 years old in the community and inviting the mothers to worship service on Sunday mornings at Lifeline. Leaving them with a gift from God of clothes, toys, and a handmade quilt. Our team consisted of 11 people, each team member had a change to love on a baby and with the mothers.
This provides an ongoing presence in the community and takes place about 3 times a week. The volunteer missionaries are accompanied by the local community leaders who are already familiar with the families, on a walk in the areas surrounding the Lifeline Mission compound.
Infant Nutrition Ministry – As the mothers bring their babies to the medical facility on the Lifeline compound on a weekly basis to be weighed to make sure they are gaining weight. Each volunteer missionary has an opportunity to hold the babies, love on them, and pray with the mothers. The mothers are given infant formula and cereal as a supplement to breastfeeding.
