The year started with our society sending items that we started to accumulate along with another group to Haiti. –note container article–.—A majority of the items were clothes, with a few shoes, toiletries and 4 wheelbarrows. A total of 270 banana boxes, or 1⁄4 of a container should be arriving in Port au Prince. Plus writing this newsletter to bring you up to date.
Our annual meeting is scheduled for Sunday. March 24 at 3:30 at Christ Lutheran Church, with a soup supper to follow. This year we will have a guest from Haiti to speak to us. His name is Lophane and he has been actively involved in helping the Florida Mission group for many years to complete important projects. Lophane more recently assisted our society with the organizing of lay workers for the teaching time last Oct. and also the distribution of our last 2 containers. Hope to see many of you there.
Our goal in 2019 is to have a pastor go to Haiti sometime this fall and conduct another teaching course. The Florida mission group (who travel to Haiti almost every month) will present our society with potential projects for us to consider or to jointly take on with their assistance.
The need in Haiti continues to be great due to poverty and natural disasters (earthquakes and hurricanes) and more recently man made by riots. In Haiti there is always a need, so we continue to try and help as much as we can.
Pray for a peacefull year in Haiti and to reach out to Haitians with the Christian message .
