BELOW IS A DESCRIPTION OF THE HAITI GENERAL MISSION PROJECT
AND OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP WITH IT.
St. Thomas is part of a five state project known as Building Hope in Haiti. We are involved in several projects to support the LCMS Mission in Haiti including:
- Student Sponsorship: Currently sponsoring eleven students attending Lutheran Mission Schools in Haiti.
- Lutheran Village Housing: The goal is to build 300 homes in the community that will include a church, school and a health clinic. A group is currently in the process of building a guest house to accommodate volunteers going to Haiti.
- Mission Support: Volunteers from several area churches, including St. Thomas, are involved in going to Haiti for short term missions throughout the year.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
- You can sponsor a child for $200 per year. This includes educational materials, uniforms, meals and tuition. Watch for an annual sponsorship drive.
- St Thomas has a goal of raising $8,000 over the next five years to build a permanent home for a family in Haiti.
- There are opportunities to donate supplies or monetary gifts for these missions. Watch for an announcement of various supplies that are needed, such as OTC meds, vitamins, etc., and a date when they will be collected.
To get involved personally or financially, please contact the church.
