  • Teens to Return to Haiti in February

    The terrible destruction wrought by Hurricane Matthew to Haiti has not altered the plans for the church's teen mission group to return in February to help build a new home for a family they met there in July, says the Rev. Jeffrey Gargano. "The man of the house had fashioned together a quite remarkable instrument that he used to praise God at church," says Rev. Gargano. He, his wife, three children and grandmother lived in a house (pictured at left) that was little more than sticks and straw held together by mud, with gaping holes, says Rev. Gargano, adding, "It's a kind of poverty that is almost unspeakable for us." 

    The trip will fulfill the mission team's challenge to the congregation to raise $4,000 to build the house (with the help of local builders), such as the one pictured at right that the teens worked on last summer. Three teens have so far volunteered to spend their spring break mixing concrete and carrying cement blocks. The host ministry, Helping Hands for Haiti, is supported by many Reformed, Christian Reformed and Lutheran churches in the Midwest.
