Flapjack Fundraiser Success!!

Thank you to everyone who supported our team this past Saturday by showing up for our Flapjack Fundraiser at Applebee's!

Our team raised about $600 in just over 2 hours of breakfast service - awesome!!

We had a great time serving up hot flapjacks, sausage, juice and coffee to all who came and we also grew closer as a team by learning to manage the pressure of being servers, bus-boys and hosts to all our breakfast guests :)

We leave for Haiti in just over one month and we are preparing by meeting as a team for global mission training with By Grace Alone Ministries. Jean-Pierre Sangai will be leading our team in a training about cross-cultural ministry, differences of Haitian and American cultures and sharing the gospel as a foreigner.

Also, Mission of Hope is doing some exciting things happening right now and our team can't wait to help! Here's a progress report for the month of September:

» The roof was completed on the Bercy site school office. Praise God for progress!

» 88 people were vaccinated through the MOH Community Health Initiative.

» 24 women and children were vaccinated in a small outlying village through the MOH vaccination program.

» 158 patients were treated at a MOH medical mobile clinic in Zoranger.

» 900 kids attended Vacation Bible School on the last day of the program! Praise God for bringing these children to MOH to learn about Him!

» Little Pierre (Hope Village orphan with cerebral palsy) will be receiving a pediatric wheelchair soon. Thank you Children Rising, Inc for this wonderful blessing!

As always, if you'd like to support our team traveling to Mission of Hope Haiti, November 5-12, please click on the yellow DONATE link at the top right of this blog page. Every dollar counts as we work to meet our fundraising goal.

Blessings and thank you!
