A Glimpse of the Past and a Glimpse of the Future

Mini-Reunion of Haiti STM 2016
(Pictured from Left to Right: Stephanie, Michelle, Dr. Junie Morquette, and Nicolette)

We were blessed to have Dr. Junie Morquette visit Park Street Church today and to have a mini-reunion with some of the members from the Haiti STM Team 2016! Having visited Dr. Morquette's church in Haiti, it was a pleasure to have her visit ours. The Morquettes will again be our gracious hosts at their guest house in Port-au-Prince, Haiti this upcoming July 22-31.

Haiti STM Team 2017 is already hard at work preparing for the trip! We held our second team meeting today to discuss how to prepare physically (i.e. logistics such as what to pack, how to prepare for the heat and humidity, making sure to get anti-malarial medications), mentally (learning some of Haiti's history, geography, culture and language), and spiritually (praying, using the Short-term Missions Workbook by Tim Dearborn). We would also like to express our immense gratitude to those supporting us through their prayers as well as supporting us financially!

We are planning on continuing the Vacation Bible School (VBS) with the children at the orphanage but this year we are also going to incorporate an English as a Second Language (ESL) component to the curriculum. We are also going to be doing mobile clinics again as well as support King's Hospital medical staff with continuing education around X-rays and ultrasounds.

Hopefully this year we will be able to update this blog with information about our preparations in addition to giving daily updates from Haiti once we arrive.
