This year, a very special group of people from all walks of Life and from three continents, gathered to Journey together to experience the fulfilment that comes from serving into the lives of others. We went to assist the children, orphans and families in Carrefour and Bouvier in Haiti. We consulted with the communities on the ground in Haiti to discover their vision and dreams, and went to assist them in transforming their communities through community projects in education, health, building and the arts.
Our team members had first-hand opportunity to give hope, share joy and make a tangible difference in the lives of children and families connected with BOUVIER SCHOOL in the mountains behind Port-au-Prince and LOVE ORPHANAGE in Carrefour, Port-au-Prince.
Each person who travels with us has their own unique set of skills and talents that contribute to the effectiveness of the team as a whole. Everyone has something to offer! There is much to do in putting our compassion into action!
We are so blessed to join with people like yourself, those who choose to sacrifice time and funds, fly out of their own comfort zones and country, to bless so many children and families. You will serve as ambassadors for those who have donated, and tangibly show our precious friends in these nations, that those who have contributed not only care about their physical needs, but about the needs of their hearts as well. You will find that it will be not so much a personal sacrifice, but a life changing investment for yourself and those you represent. With each team that travels with us, the relationships within our project communities grow stronger.
