Thousands of Haitians are still left homeless 2 years after the earthquake that devastated their country. The city of Port-Au-Prince, despite huge clean-up efforts, still appears as though the disaster just took place. In spite of all that the Haitian people have been through, the church still stands strong. In fact, the church is growing in ways like we’ve never seen. People are responding to the Gospel, churches are rebuilding, pastors are being trained, orphans are being cared for, and God’s Kingdom is advancing.

The death toll from the 2010 earthquake in Haiti is 360,000 and it’s estimated that 800,000 people are still living in tents after losing their homes. There is a great need in Haiti and the people are very receptive to the Gospel. We will work in the capital city of Port au Prince and spend a week serving in the local churches and the streets.
