When CODEP, our mission partner in southern Haiti near the epicenter of the 2010 earthquake, began working towards a community that would be self-sustainable most of the Haitians that they encountered had little to no concept of passing on something, an inheritance, to the their children. Decades later, there is something that is sometimes difficult to come across in Haiti: self-respect, a sense of dignity, and a hope for a future not just for themselves but for their children as well.
We limit these teams to 10 people and are already beginning our plans for next summer. It may be time for you to go, continue our relationship with Haiti, and to see yourself the vision we have alongside CODEP for Haiti. If you'd like to start that process just speak to Carla Carson in Mission Central on Sundays or send an email to her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
