Summer Camp Update – 50 Kids Are Counting On Us!

Summer is coming – and that means kids all over are looking forward to camp! With your help, the Cazale Community Center in the Diocese of Haiti is making headway in providing “camperships” so that 50 Haitian children can attend a one-week summer camp in July. Fr. Isaias and Christie, along with Fal, Derek and Veronica Gibson, expect to join Gina and me on this very exciting mission trip. It only takes $60 to sponsor one child for a full week of fun and fellowship. We have already raised enough money for 10 children.

We’re aware that not everyone will be able to join us in person, but we certainly want you to be with us in spirit! So, here comes Haiti 101: a Saturday evening of Haitian art, history and culture. You’ll enjoy authentic Haitian food and try dancing to some of our best Zouk and Kompa music. Haitian artists will display paintings, as well as arts and crafts items.

You’ll also learn a bit of our past history, who we are and how we got here; our educational system and language; and our religious and cultural traditions.

It will be a fun evening for all at a date in June to be announced. Gina and I look forward to seeing you!
