I’m in the process of “serious planning” for the return trip to Haiti this year. This is the information and announcement sheet we have created to share and give out to those who are considering joining our team. I wanted to share it here in case any of my readers know anyone who might be interested in joining us. We have a vision of 40 team members returning with us this December to help raise the walls of the new orphanage in Onaville, Haiti. This Sunday we will have a meeting at our church in Marietta, GA to ask our members to join us. Here is the Announcement and Information anyone interested in going this December needs to know.
