Albright’s first Mission Team for 2014 is on its way to Haiti to serve under the direction of the EMCC. Construction Team members, Leif Anderson, Peter Dyck and Jamey Martin from Albright, have joined with 5 other team members from Ontario and are now enroute to Gens de Nantes, Haiti. Their travels will land them in Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic where they will travel by bus to the Haitian border. They will cross the border in to Haiti (possibly on foot) and continue the 2 hour journey by local ‘taptap’ transportation to the Village of Gens De Nantes. They are expected to arrive on January 12/14.
While in Gens de Nantes the team will be assisting the ministries of the local AEM church, which also runs a Medical Clinic and School. Some of the projects on their list are the renovation of the guesthouse used by mission teams, as well as constructing a retaining wall in the courtyard of the school, and some much needed roof repairs.
The team would greatly appreciate your prayers throughout their two week stay. Here’s a few specific things you can pray for:
- protection as they travel
- safe border crossings with their materials and tools
- supplies to be available and their tasks would be completed well
- good health and endurance for the team members
- that they would be a blessing and encouragement to the community
Communication with the team will be limited, but we will do our best to keep you updated through this blog. You can also follow their experiences through our Twitter Feed: @AlbrightChurch
