Haiti Mission Trip 2015
Mini-VBS – Pastor O said, “Y’all make me look good”. He was so pleased with the delivery of this ministry. Ms. Maudie and Sis. LaKeesha were the leaders on this, and the impact was felt and visibly seen within the community for several days after the VBS was over.
This was a true team effort, with many of the 36 team members from other churches stepping in to help create an atmosphere that the 60 children from the Grand Goave community would not soon forget. A lively game of Simon says, shared in English and translated into Creole by the interpreter. An animated bible story involving a slingshot, followed by two very creative and organized crafts complete with a take-home souvenir hat that would carry forth the Christian banner into the community. “Jezi Loves Ayiti” (creole) or “Jesus Loves Haiti” (English).Top that off with a musical portion led by Nehemiah on percussion and the children on the guitars they just finished making.
We saw the hats everywhere throughout the duration of our trip; at the soccer game, on the evening walks in the community, and on mothers coming to Lifeline for various offerings. What a testimony!!
