Haiti Mission

Fall Haiti Mission Trip

Date: November 17-24, 2018
Cost: $1,800

What is the Project?
CLEAN WATER! The majority of Haitian families don’t have access to clean water in their homes. They get their water from muddy canals and contaminated wells and standpipes. We will be distributing water filtration units to families and provide basic hygiene training. We will also provide in-home water filtration checks. 

Where will we stay?
When we arrive in Haiti, we will stay at the Methodist Guest House in Port-au-Prince. 

How will we travel?
We will travel by air from Houston Intercontinental Airport to Miami and then to Port-au-Prince, Haiti. 

What is the cost of the trip?
The cost is $1,800 per person. This includes airfare, transportation in Haiti, excursions in Haiti, lodging, and meals. This fee does not include the cost of the filtration units we will be supplying to the community. This cost will be $3,500 and we will fundraise as a group to cover this cost. Payment schedule is as follows: $600 due August 28, $600 due September 25, and $600 due October 30. 

Will there be opportunities to fundraise to cover my trip cost?
Yes! We are currently working on several opportunities to fundraise funds to help cover the cost of your trip. 

Do I need a passport?
Yes! All participants must have an active passport that will NOT expire before May 25, 2019. If you do not have a passport, you must get one NOW! You can apply for a passport at the Lufkin Post Office. Current cost is $145 for a passport book and will take approximately six weeks to process. You can pay extra to expedite it if you wish. Please visit travel.state.gov for a full list of fees, forms, and necessary documents to apply.  

Will there be team meetings?
Yes! We will have several meetings before our trip to provide more details and talk about the dynamics of serving God through a mission trip. 

I am ready! Who do I talk to?
Leaders for this trip will be Rev. Laura Campbell and Vicki Shimer. Please feel free to contact them with any additional questions you may have. If you are ready to go, click here to download the Initial Registration Form and return to Pastor Laura or Vicki.
