Haiti Mission Trip May 2016
 
Carol Haisten went with the North American Haiti Partnership mission team Sunday, May 8th, 2016.
The post come for different people on the team. As you follow these post, please keep them in your
prayers as well as the rest of the Team Members.
 
 We will head back to Haiti, where we will focus on medical missions, supporting local pastors, and developing relationships with the children of several communities. We ask you to pray about being a part of this potentially life-changing week. According to the World Bank, Haiti is the poorest country in the world, yet it’s only a three-hour flight (yet a world away) from Atlanta. We are not going on a mission trip in efforts to be a hero. It’s not about us – it’s about God, and the folks in Haiti don’t need heroes – they need long-term partners.

Be in prayer about these opportunities to serve God and experience the mighty things He is doing in Haiti.

 
 
HAITI UPDATE: Sunday, May 8th, 2016

Hello family and friends!

The missionaries have arrived safely in Haiti and are sitting down now to a quick dinner before time for an opening night devotion and blessing over the week.  They were met at the Port-au-Prince Airport by Pastor Jean Baptiste and some of the translators for the week and escorted back to the beautiful Palm Inn for a night of rest prior to starting their busy schedule.

We pray that God will lead the group and use them for his glory this week!

In His Grace,

Lori Stanley-Chase

HAITI UPDATE: Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

Today was a day that our missionaries will remember. They got to see the entire city of Port-au-Prince. This would include Tent City, which is where a lot of families moved to after the earthquake. The property that Tent City is owned is where we had our clinic today.

Pastor Rick told me he felt like he learned a lot today from Pastor Jean Baptiste, who was sitting next to him helping him talk in Creole. He said that it was like he felt like he belonged here on this trip. He fit in.

In Clinic today we saw about 50 in medical and in optical. Seeing folks that we see each time we come. Folks with high blood pressure that we give them there meds, and we also see new people with new problems.

I was told after we had left that a special lady and her daughter were there. Lori and myself started a micro credit with her in January 2013. Micro credit is where you loasomeone the money($130.00) to start a business. This is all run thru the church we were at today. Requirements for microcredit loans are: They must be a church member, go to classes on how to run a business, keep records,  how to do accounting and open a checking account. They must repay the loan in 11 months. This is like a vendor on the side of the street. This special lady came in 2013 and saw Lori in medical and Lori ask her what brought her in the clinic today. She said she needed food for her and her daughter who was very small and malnourished. She started her business and is raising her daughter. The money is paid back to the church and then that start a new micro credit with someone new.  Today this program is growing with 22 micro credits and with 11 successfully completed and repaid.

After lunch today Carol and myself came back to the hotel to inventory the supplies and the rest went out to Port Lafiteauto see where the new hospital will be built.

Overall today was a beautiful day.

 

Attached are a couple pictures of the sewing ministry that is in its first year in Onaville (yesterday’s visit location), as well as the woman and child who were the recipients of the first microcredit.
