The month of September has been chaotic. Many demonstrations all across the country most every week. The pattern has been completely unpredictable. Some days are quiet and other days make reliable travel completely impossible. The level of violence has also increased with more frequent rock throwing and sporadic gunfire.
It is not advisable for teams to travel to Haiti for the first few weeks in October. If you have plans for late October or early November, I would suggest keeping your airline tickets and re-evaluating as October progresses.
Team Planning and Scheduling
The needs in Haiti are greater than they have been in many years as the economy continues to spiral downward.
Do not let the current situation prevent you from making plans for next year. Many things can happen between now and next Spring so do not be discouraged.
God has a plan for Haiti. We just need to prayerfully consider how we respond.
The Eglise Methodiste d’ Haiti webpage, located at eglisemethodistedhaiti.org shows the current schedule of teams for the year 2020. In order to reserve your spot, refer to the schedule as you make your plans.
The guesthouse can accommodate multiple teams at one time, but our capacity is not unlimited. Please contact the guesthouse by email or use the convenient registration form on the webpage to make your reservation as soon as possible.
If you are still searching for a project, go to the project tab on the webpage and select a project that fits your interest, time and talents. Remember that if the cost of a project is beyond your capabilities you may subscribe to support a project partially and share the cost with another team or extend the completion to another year. The dollar amounts shown on the project tabs is the cost to complete the project from this point forward until completion. If the project you choose does not have a completed budget, please contact me David Draegeremhmissionvolunteer@yahoo.com and I will work on developing a budget for you.
