College Heights Baptist Church - November 2016 | Hungry For Life

October 2016: ,

A team of 11 from College Heights Church in Prince George headed to Haiti to continue their work with FONSOPED, a Haitian-led organization. FONSOPED operates a school that has 410 students in grades 1-11, with each child receiving a hot meal every day. The team served the school and community by assisting with some finishing work on the school and classrooms; developing a school library; and visiting students’ homes with care packages for them and their families. This was their 4th team in 5 years to work with FONSOPED in this community.

"I feel that being part of a team was enriching."

Bonjou Prince George!

I wanted to start my message with a very special experience I had yesterday. I met my sponsor child, Phalantz, who is a thirteen-year-old boy that must walk a total of three hours each day to attend school. He is a shy young boy but I was thrilled to get a hug.
