Haiti Family November 2017


Opportunity Overview

Welcome to the November 2017 Family Haiti Trip page!

Our group from Forest Hill Church will be traveling to Titanyen, a village just north of Port-au-Prince with 13,000 residents, many of which resettled in the area after the earthquake. Our AIM partner, Mission of Hope, meets the physical and spiritual needs of the local communities by providing education about better hygiene, meeting the immediate physical needs of the village, and helping the church to play an integral part of empowering the community. Please join this trip or donate to help each of us go deeper in Christ as we follow His command to be His Church.

Trip Focus:

This is a FHC family trip and is open to families with children over the age of 8. The team will serve alongside Mission of Hope by helping with several community development projects, which may include repairing and restoring homes and churches, building latrines, helping to promote sustainable agriculture in the community, and hosting a kids club. This family trip will be led by Deanna Lee. This trip will be forming with leadership from the Ballantyne campus and team meetings will be held in the Ballantyne area.

If you have any questions, please email GoGlobal Trip Coordinator, Alison Gamble at Alison.Gamble@foresthill.org.

All forms can be scanned and e-mailed to Alison.Gamble@foresthill.org, given to your team leader, or mailed to:
