Experience the work of God in Haiti. We will partner with Haiti Foundation Against Poverty. This is an "experience Haiti" trip where we go to both serve and learn. Things to do include seeing HFAP programs at work, encounter the country and culture, engage in a key project—like a day camp for the school kids, or a Bible study and Bible distribution, or bed deliveries for families who are sleeping on the ground or cardboard mats. There is no shortage of need and taking the love of Jesus to people in Haiti will be the main goal.
