Westbow Construction - November 2018 | Hungry For Life

November 2018: ,

In November, a team of 14 including HFL leader Jason Krul traveled to Haiti to work alongside United Christians International in Pignon, and FONSOPED in Mirebalais. The team assisted in completing the construction of bridge near the school in Mirebalais, construction of a teacher's housing facility at UCI, conducted home visits in the community, participated in feeding programs, and more!

Team Testimonials:

"I have seen firsthand God at work—the Holy Spirit is very much in Haiti within the people."
"Monetary donations aren't always easy to make when it is unclear what they will be used for. Seeing the positive impact firsthand proves giving/donating is worth it."
"I have realized that there is a high need and that I am able to help out—even in Canada."
"To see the happiness in the midst of so much pain and poverty is a striking contrast to how we have so much (in North America) and yet we are never happy."

It’s amazing to look at all we have and take it for granted , we go to the store buy what we want when we want , waste money at every turn and not really care . When you come on a mission trip you get to see people in third world countries and how they really live.

First full day in Haiti

We woke up to full sun at 6:30am very jet lagged as we are 3 hours ahead here. We ate eggs, noodles and papaya for breakfast and were very impressed. Since we only have one truck it took two trips to get to the school here in Mirebalais.

Safe and Sound

“The streets of Port au Prince were quite crowded and traffic at its best when the team loaded up the bus at the airport and set off for Mirebalais.  The usual 1 hr drive took 3hrs on the over congested streets!   The team was relieved, tired and hungry when we finally arrived at our hotel.
