The second work team sponsored through HelpHaitiHeal (Canada) dedicated their efforts to a school reconstruction project in mid-October. The 10-member team was drawn from five Free Methodist churches in Ontario — two from Whitby (Burt McDonnell and Grant Sigsworth, Coordinator of HelpHaitiHeal Canada), three from Napanee (Rev David/Charlotte Dyer and Bill Wales), two from Odessa (Rev Glen Coates, Malcolm McFarlane), one from Pine Grove (Mark Pedlar) and two from Almonte (Terry Monette and Keith Payler). The team came together well considering that they only had one meeting before departure.
Keith Payler was the team’s Technical Leader, while David Dyer and Glen Coates served as chaplains, leading the team in a daily devotional time together. Charlotte Dyer was the team’s chef, preparing nourishing meals and snacks for a hungry crew.
