At our Christmas party, we raised money for a program called the Men’s Bakery that provides Haitian men an opportunity to work, learn how to run a business, engage in a bible study. The program also teaches them how to drive, how to read and write, how to speak english and it provides each man 1 meal a day. Once their training is done, they can work in the bakery so they can provide for their families.
On this trip, we may be building bathrooms for the bakery’s cafe, schools, maternity hospitals. We will also probably spend time in various orphanages, visiting remote villages and “tent villages”. At these locations, our time will be spent helping the families that live there by pumping water from their wells, playing soccer (or other sports) with the kids, or any other jobs that are needed on that day.
Heartline Foundation (a part of Heartline Ministries www.heartlineministries.org) will be leading the trip. Our guide will be the Executive Director of the Heartline Foundation, who lives in the Greensboro area. We will be staying in the Heartline Ministries guest house (www.heartlineguesthouse.com).
This is a CMAUI opportunity – Completely Meaningful and Utterly Important.
