There is a two-fold purpose for mission trips. One is to provide teams with the experience of seeing God at work in Jacmel or Jeremie and joining Him there. The second purpose is to meet the needs of the children at the Children’s Home and surrounding community by being the hands and feet of Christ. Since the needs are varied and numerous, teams have the opportunity to partner with Children’s Hope and the local church in many ways as they serve. Some opportunities include conducting medical clinics, dental clinics, working on construction projects, assisting local churches with evangelism and Bible studies, and conducting Vacation Bible School. The Team Coordinator, Ann Amster, and Mission Team Hosts, Scott and Allison Payne, will assist in connecting each mission team to specific needs and opportunities based on the make-up of the members.
