Angie in Haiti
Thanks to everyone who is praying for Angie while she is in Haiti.
Please bounce on over to the Global Impact Mission blog to catch a glimpse about their trip so far.
The team only has two more days of ministry before they fly home on Saturday.
In the meantime, here is a short summary history of Haiti and why New Missions is there.
Fewer than 700 miles off the coast of Florida is the poorest country in the western hemisphere—Haiti. In 1804, the West African slaves revolted against the French, dedicated their country to Satan and became the first Black Republic. Today, more than 8.5 million people call Haiti home. Over 2 million children do not attend school. Haiti is too close to ignore, and it is our calling to develop a generation of Christian leaders in Haiti. Haiti is a third world country with very little natural resources and a population where 47% of the adults are illiterate. Voodoo is the primary religion practiced in Haiti. We are reaching the people of Haiti with the power of the Gospel by establishing churches and providing Christian education, medical care, necessary food and community development. Our work in Haiti is focused on reaching the poorest of the poor.
