The Latest Photos from the Team!!
Here's the latest text message from Team Haiti: Friday, walked around neighborhood, showed boys some "real" Haitian homes and some of the work "Feed My Sheep" Ministries has done. Afternoon, built 8 garden boxes, 4 ft. x 1ft. for people to plant herbs or other vegetables. Waiting now for A cappella men to come and sing.
The team leader and our school nurse Deb Papperman reports, "It's Hot Hot Hot, some of the boys got cornrows in their hair, they have cut wood for the new garden, painted houses, and took some of the orphans to the beach. Scott and Bryan have led the devotions and they are all having a great time."
Music teacher Charlie Caldwell says, "...after breakfast and devotions we our started painting job on Natasha's house. Afternoon, cutting boards for garden boxes."
Be careful, Mr. Caldwell!!
Keep Praying for the Team! (especially Mr. Caldwell)
A team of CCS students and teachers are on a mission trip to Haiti through Oct. 23, 2017.
The team is helping at Feed My Sheep Ministries Mission house in the village of Montrouis, Haiti. Haiti is the poorest country in the world with severe poverty, malnourishment, homelessness and a severe lack of even basic education for its children. The team will be visiting four orphanages, plus CCS sponsored child “Enoch” along with many projects while spreading God’s word. The students on the team are taking a class on missions which is teaching team building, spreading the Gospel in a foreign land, learning cultural differences, and some of the language.
The Haiti Mission Team is selling shirts to raise funds for supplies. Designed by CCS alumnus Aden Herchelroth (who has been on the two previous Haiti Missions Trip), the t-shirts are $15. Contact Mrs. Biagi or Mrs. Papperman to purchase one.
Last February's Trip
In February 2017, our school nurse, Deborah Papperman, took a group of high school students, parents and alumni on a mission trip to Haiti. They distributed personal hygiene items to various orphanages in this poverty-stricken country and provided much-needed basic medical care to hundreds of Haitians. The personal hygiene products, as well as loose change, were collected by CCS Middle School students over the past few months. The initial goal was to collect enough change to buy a bag of rice, however, the students brought in enough money to buy a goat, a bag of rice, and a bag of beans! $180 was collected and numerous amounts of toothbrushes, toothpastes, deodorants, shampoos, etc. were purchased.
