We are getting ready for our trip, which begins on January 28 with flights from Kansas City to Miami, and from Miami to Cap Haïtien! A team meeting is scheduled for January 7 at 9:30 a.m., and we're asking the LFMC congregation to help with donations of the following items:

  • towels
  • twin bed sheets
  • underwear, size 6 through adult
  • boys' socks, black or dark grey
  • girls' socks, white
  • soccer socks for boys
  • toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • hand sanitizer

Team members will carry extra suitcases for donated items. Although things can change quickly in third-world countries, we believe we will be working on constructing the second floor walls of the new school building that was begun by the previous team in January/February 2016.

The team members for this trip are:

  • Susan Anderson
  • Angie Bird
  • Taylor Bird
  • Richard Erickson
  • Doug Heacock
  • Kenna LaRue
  • Taylor Manning
  • Judy Rahn
  • Kim Riffel
  • Rick Riffel
  • Randy Roy
  • Amber Temple
  • Stephanie Temple
  • Larry Wedman
  • Tasha Wertin

Please pray for us as we prepare, for our families while we are gone, for our health and safety, and for hearts that are open to what God wants to do in us and through us while we are in Haiti. We will do our best to keep this blog updated during the week of our trip. Mèsi anpil! (Thank you very much!)
