The first of two Help Haiti Heal teams of Canadian Free Methodists is now on site in Haiti, until October 8 and the second team is primed to depart.
The first team of 13 persons (nine men and 4 women) has been organized by the FMC in Verona, ON, in collaboration with Grant Sigsworth, Coordinator of Help Haiti Heal (Canada). The team includes several persons from the FMC in Smiths Falls, ON.
The team’s project is very exciting: start the construction of a school in the rural community of Guerin, SW of the capital Port au Prince and near the epicentre of the earthquake of January 12. The team is commuting daily to Guerin from their lodgings in the city by riding on the back of the FM mission’s truck, then at the worksite they will be working with Haitians from the local church and community. What a marvellous opportunity to get to see the country and interact with our brothers and sisters in the Haiti FMC!
