Haiti Mission Trip

Donations due Sunday, July 21, 2019

As you know, RRC has been serving in Haiti for nearly a decade. We have been blessed to work alongside the Haiti Foundation Against Poverty (HFAP) and are still extremely invested in this organization’s ministries. This year however, we have been called to serve in a different capacity and are excited about this new opportunity.
 
On July 29, a team from Rockford will be traveling to Haiti to serve with Greg Yoder and Christian World Outreach (CWO). We will still spend a day serving with HFAP in Port-au-Prince, but then will head to the countryside to serve with CWO. We are extremely excited to see another side of Haiti and share the gospel with some of the world’s most unreached people. While there, we will be sharing His love with 500+ children in the community of Monbin.
 
With any new opportunity, there are also new challenges. One of our challenges has to do with fundraising. We are traveling to La Victoire in northern Haiti and therefore have additional travel expenses to consider. We also would LOVE to share a meal with the 500 children that we work with each day. We want to feed their souls and their bodies, but know that we can only do so with the support of our friends and family.
 
With that said, we are sincerely asking for your prayers. Pray that God will prepare us for our visit and bless our efforts as we minister to the people of Haiti. We also need prayers that our financial needs will be met. At this time, we need to raise $4,500 for the feeding program we hope to provide in the countryside. Donations can be made directly to CWO online at cwomissions.org. Please designate in the comments section that your donation is for the Rockford team. You can also donate by writing a check to RRC Missions. Please include in the memo line that your donation is for Haiti.
 
Please know that whether you feel led to contribute financially, through prayer, or both, all of your support is greatly appreciated. We look forward to doing God’s work in Haiti and letting you know all about how God has worked through this team when we return later in August.
