Forest Hill Ballantyne's next Haiti trip is quickly approaching! A team of 10 women will travel to Mission of Hope Haiti from September 29-October 6.

While in Haiti, the team will serve in various capacities within several different villages surrounding Mission of Hope (MOH). Check out Mission of Hope's website here. MOH has served in Haiti for over 25 years by providing medical aid, nutrition programs and secondary education.

Our team will stay on the 75 acre MOH property and serve alongside Haitians working at the Mission's orphanage, medical clinic, church and school. Here are some exciting facts about the work MOH does in Haiti:

  • MOH's nutrition program feeds 50,000 people EVERY DAY
  • 2,500 children (kindergarten through high school) attend the MOH School of Hope
  • 60 orphaned children call MOH's Village of Hope their home and receive education, nutrition and medical care
  • MOH is nearly halfway through their goal of building 500 homes for the poor and deaf community in nearby Leveque, Haiti
An important way you can help the team is to pray for our trip - pray for the ministry we will perform and for each team member individually:
  • Caylene Brown
  • Ashley Evans
  • Wendy Garrett
  • Patty Gemmill
  • Kris McBride
  • LeeAnn Pounds
  • Kimberly Spitz
  • Sophie Tucker
  • Erin Vinson
  • Blanca Wakefield
There are also financial needs for this trip. The cost per team member is $1,600. If you feel compelled to donate, please click the "DONATE" button on the top right of this blog. If you wish to do so, you can indicate which team member your donation should go to.

Thank you for partnering with this team as they prepare to travel to Haiti and Mission of Hope - only with your prayers and support is this trip possible!

God bless!
