Haiti Under God continues to go alongside Haitians to assist with already-established projects in Haiti. Plus, ministries under the HUG umbrella are ongoing.
Between October 31 (which just happens to be the 500th anniversary of the Reformation!) and November 7, board member Barbara Spence leads in a Vision Clinic and leads a Family Conference. Both ministries have proven in the past to be invaluable to the people of Haiti. These are annual events, so anyone interested in being involved and/or donating can contact HUG.
The first part of 2018 will be busy with one mission team after another:
- January 3-10, the “Mud Dogs’, a team of construction volunteers led by HUG CEO Bruce Williams heads to Cha Cha Mountain to assist in repairing and building homes. Agricultural planning, such as establishing terraced gardens, is also underway. “We are also hopeful to build small chicken coops for sections of the community that villagers in particular areas can utilize,” says Bruce.
- January 27-February 3, a team from First Presbyterian Church of Columbia, SC, will continue work on Cha Cha.
- February 3-10, a group called F3 will try to finish up projects started and/or worked on by the Mud Dogs and volunteers with First Presbyterian Church.
Plus, a medical clinic in the Valley of Hope is in the building stages, and teams will most likely assist with that project as well.
Last year, even HUG Pastor Maxeau Antoine donned a Mud Dog hat and helped out.
HUG mission trips are a way for friends, family members, co-workers, and colleagues to share in making a huge difference in the lives of the Haitian people.
There is still room to participate in the April 17-24 Women’s Conference. Contact HUG if interested.
