International Connections ~ Haiti
The closest international mission fields to Forest Hill Church are in Central America, Mexico and the Caribbean, including Haiti. The ease of travel to these relatively close areas provides a unique opportunity for our congregation to build relationships with those living in economically fragile areas.
With the support of our Ministry of Justice and Mission, eight FHC members traveled to Haiti to explore possible partnerships with Haitian communities or organizations. (Read the journal of their trip here.)
The team observed five main projects in the Hinche central plateau area north of Port Au Prince: MPP (Peasants’ Movement of Papaye), an Eco-village, the Orphanage of the Little Brothers and Sisters of the Incarnation, the Midwives for Haiti training program, and St. Therese Hospital. To learn more about these five projects, click on their photos below.
The Haiti team returns to Haiti in the Fall of 2013 for a 9-day adult mission trip in partnership with the Little Brothers and Sisters of the Poor. For more information, email Jeff Smith or Deanne Lentz.
