August 2000 Newsletter

Dear Friends,

By the time you’re reading this letter, I’ll be back in Haiti, leading a couple of short term mission teams from California.  On August 1, a team of 11 from Kelseyville, along with 5 of us from Washington, will leave.  That team returns on August 10 and when they are dropped off at the airport in Port-au-Prince, we pick up a team of 14 from Susanville.  We then return home on August 19.  Both teams will share the gospel of Jesus Christ in Bible School with children in several villages, worship with our Haitian brothers and sisters in Christ on Sunday, and be involved in an evangelistic crusade for 4 nights in Tricotte.  Projects we’ll be working on include: 1) laying a 2000 foot, water pipeline to provide water for our new orphanage and 2) installing shelving in the closets, storage rooms, bedrooms and library of the orphanage.  However, holding, loving, and playing with our 96 kids in the orphanage is always a highlight of each trip.  Please pray that hearts and lives of team members will be touched for the glory of God.  Continue Reading →
