Last year the team stayed stateside, heading down to Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where we helped a family that lost their home to the tornado. This year we are going to Port-au-Prince in Haiti. We will be working with Julie and Gerritt VanWagenen at the Haiti Under God girls orphanage, at the Love and Grace Boys Home (Nancy Turner's orphanage), and an orphanage in the town of Leogane. All three of these orphanages were greatly impacted by the earthquake in 2009, and several children are in the orphanages because they lost one or both of their parents. We also expect to work with Pastor Nathan, to do a Vacation Bible School for the children in his church.
The 2012 Youth Mission Team teens are available for you to “rent.” We will be going for two weeks, and the cost of our trip is $1,400 per person. There are several ways you can help. Your prayers are most important, but we are also in need of some help with finances. So...
