Calvin Christian School - July 2017 | Hungry For Life

July 2017: ,

In July, 13 people traveled to Haiti to work alongside Lemuel Ministries in Anse Rouge. The team, comprised of secondary students, worked with the locals to help with the construction of the school, assisted with an agricultural project, provided food gift baskets during home visits of widows and elderly in the community, and taught English and computer classes.

Team Testimonials:

"This trip taught me to always help others when I can and to never take anything for granted."
"I was affected in seeing how the Haitians welcomed us and worked alongside of us to get results."
"I more vividly realized the reality of a developing country - in Canada streets are clean and everyone has access to waste removal and clean water."
"Once again it is clear how blessed we are to have the basic needs of life met and how we have taken it for granted."
"I have been taught to be less careless and make more use of my time, money, etc."
"I went to Haiti to teach them, but they ended up changing me."
