Outreach - 2015 Haitian Missions Trip

 


 

On August 4, 2015, a team of 16 volunteers, (14 adults and 2 teens) from New Life Fellowship travelled to Port au Prince, Haiti to partner with “Elevate Haiti Ministries.”

New Life began this partnership in 2010 just prior to the earthquake of 2010.

The travelers were engaged in outreach ministry:  children’s camp under the supervision of Jeannie Slaughter; a young girls workshop (ages 13-17) “Love Your Selfie”; completion of the boys’ home that houses 12 boys from 5-15 years of age; and assisted in

feeding over 200 patients at a nearby hospital.  The collaboration of our nursing staff,

Claudette Rainey and Karen Rollins along with the Haitian nurses/interpreters were able to serve 350+ patients from the LaPlaine community.

New Life Fellowship, Rochester City Retired teachers and North Greece Church of Christ sewing projects supplied 250+ special “pillowcase dresses” for the little girls boutique.  We were also able to dispense school supplies for over 200 children donated by a former 2014 traveler, Andre Thomas, a principal from Buffalo.

Despite several challenges/setbacks:  lack of electricity(daily), parts to the new generator

Were taken, the lack of water because the water table was too low to pump water and the

Heat 103+ degrees each day DID NOT deter our determination to serve.

As one of our young travelers stated, “we are Carriers of the Light” according to Matthew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

The support of the following travelers, “Carriers of the Light” were instrumental in the success of this trip.

Paulette Gissendanner, Maxine McGill-Grant, Carlton John, Roosevelt Mareus, Crisandrea Mareus, Jeannie Slaughter, Karen Griffin, Edwina Daniels, Carthel Gissendanner, Alice Gissendanner Takisha Times, Nubia Cromartie, Bryant Cromartie, Claudette Rainey Abdur Stephens, James Lawrence

This 2015 Mission team wishes to thank Bishop Reginal and Dr. Cynthia McGill, the New Life family and other generous donors for their prayers and support.

We are definitely co-laborers together in the vineyard…to God be the Glory!!!!!!!
