This summer a team from Bethany Freewill Baptist Church served with Hold the Children in Port de Paix. Rich Rohde, Director of Hold the Children describes the journey:

Our trip to Port de Paix last week began with our first experience on a ‘chicken bus’. It was a little unnerving, very bumpy and dusty but we arrived safely and amazingly faster than expected. Several of our team got sick during the week causing them to stay at the hotel for a day. Charles, one of our team members received a call from home that his very best friend was called home to glory and then Joni received a call that her father had suffered a stroke and was put on a ventilator until she could get home; however nothing could take away from what God had planned for this team.

The team visited and encouraged the teachers at four of the HOLD sponsored schools as well as began the foundation work on the second New Haitian Mission Baptist Church there.

More trips are scheduled. For more information about an upcoming trip to Port de Paix call Mission Discovery at 615-206-0555.
