Mount Cheam Community Group - March 2017 | Hungry For Life

March 2017: ,

In March, a team of 13 traveled to Haiti to work alongside Lemuel Ministries in Anse Rouge. The team, comprised of secondary students, worked with the locals to help repair damaged homes from the hurricane, assisted with the construction of a new home, assisted in 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:

"I realized that we cannot help everyone, but those that we do help, we change their lives significantly."
"One highlight was interacting with the students and teachers in the school. Their thirst for knowledge is truly remarkable."
"I feel this trip has given me a different perspective on life — not everyone gets the privilege of having clean water, plenty of food or even education."
"I need to be more loving — less judging."
"I really enjoyed teaching classes on laptops to sixth-graders. Smiles came to their faces every time they learned something new."

A day in Port au Prince

Early this morning we woke up to a hassle of girls running around, frantically packing suitcases and cleaning up last minute things. We all then hurried off to eat a quick breakfast because there were two planes flying in to pick us up.

Last day in the village

“Hey Dorina, you think we can fit another tree in this wheelbarrow?” “Yes, of course, as many as possible!” We headed back out to the group who already were busy with planting trees in the already dug holes.

A day of rest and worship

“What time is it? 6 or 7?” “My phone says 8…”  “I don’t know, mine is still in Chilliwack time!” Time change was definitely confusing this morning.
