It’s been just over a year since a devastating earthquake leveled most of Port Au Prince, Haiti. Yet our United Brethren churches have been busy rebuilding lives, schools, and church buildings. The Delmas 33 Church, a keystone to our 33 United Brethren Churches in Haiti, is nearing completion. The church houses a school for 120 children that was established with the help of our partners CH Global and the many people who participate as child sponsors.
Funds were also provided to rebuild one of the two churches destroyed in Cite Soleil. Due to unrest and the outbreak of cholera, we were unable to send teams to help with this effort. However, funding was forwarded to the field so the congregation could move forward. The other church in Cite Soleil is working to fulfill the requirements necessary for funding to be released, but we hope to see it rebuilt soon. These two churches are both locations where we would like to open additional schools with the help of CH Global.
