The Next Step - More Details

We are now one month and four days from the trip! We had an awesome team meeting on Wednesday and this little group is excited and ready to work. I know it's only a week in Haiti, but just think, if more teams went down and just put in a week all year long.....more would happen.

Your now part of our journey as a reader and I hope you stay along for the ride. I'll blog up to the trip and then throughout it. You're going to live this one with us through this blog!

We've got exciting fundraisers coming up and I can't wait to share the needs and story of Haiti with my community. This is a message that we all need to hear. Here's what's coming up:

Saturday, August 16 - Blood Drive (benefit Red Cross locally) and Car Wash (for Haiti)

  • This should be a fun day and we're hoping to have some additional things going on to attract passer-bys.

Friday, August 29 - Bondye Li Bon Tout Tan - God is Good All the Time - A Night for Haiti

  • In the simplest form, this will be a nice evening with music and dinner

  • Working on musical entertainment (ColdSoup) our local favorite

  • Hoping to have additional things such as short clips of previous trips, speakers, Haitian food testing and more

We're meeting weekly now and the excitement of the team is growing. If you've got additional ideas for fundraising, we need it. Feel free to share in the comments section below. Anything we raise outside of airfare and mission expense will go to rice which has risen sharply in price in the past year. If you'd like to send a donation you can mail it to:

Mountain Ridge Church

Haiti Mission Team - Attention Barbara

More importantly prayer is appreciated. Money does alot, but our God is bigger and He can do alot more than money ever could. Thanks for reading - More to come!
