Our first mission trip to Haiti was in 2014. We have sent a large team in February each year since then, as well as several small teams and a large youth team in 2016. Our first Medical Mission Trip was in February of 2018.
On our trips Hopewell has fallen in love with the village of Leveque. This village grew after many settled there after the Haiti earthquake in 2010. Our mission focuses on building relationships with the people in Leveque where food and opportunities for education and employment are scarce.
We work with a Haitian pastor, Mackenzy, to bring the love of God to everyone in the village. Pastor Mackenzy has recently set up a non-profit organization in Haiti called Puits de l'espoir (Well of Hope). Within this organization there are opportunities for worship, education, and the building of the community. Worship is held three times a week at the House of Prayer. English classes and computer classes are held once a week. We also support scholarships for children to attend school.
Mission trips for summer and fall of 2019 are being planned, come back soon for more information.
