Haiti

haiti_17We are excited to announce a new partnership with Project H.O.P.E. in the country of Haiti around the Pignon area.

Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the world due in part to natural disasters that have recently hit it, including an earthquake and hurricanes. Pignon is located in the middle of the country and has roughly 30,000 people. Pignon is a farming community and is one of the country’s top suppliers for sugarcane and alcohol. There are many and vast plantations of sugarcane located throughout the area.

According to the Joshua Project, only about 16% of the population are evangelical Christians, and that percentage goes down as you move into the rural areas dominated by traditional voodoo. Whereas you see many mission teams serving in the city centers, the rural areas have been largely forgotten. We will be taking a trip to the rural mountainous areas of Central Haiti outside of Pignon in April. We will be working with local pastors who have been or are currently being trained by Project H.O.P.E.

If you are interested in participating in this trip, contact our Mission Pastor, Scott Ward.
