Please pray for the teams as they head out to their respective destinations; Haiti and Burundi. One item which requires some prayer is a ticket issue. One of our young Burundi team members withdrew from the team late on and as such we will lose his ticket/seat (no refund available). The new team member who has agreed to take his place has to start from scratch at this late stage to find £1250 for the replacement ticket and so the team and their families have set about doing the extra fundraising to get the money together.
Please pray for the Burundi team as they get involved via Mission International's partners Rema Ministries in evangelism, children's ministry, dental/medical care and practical projects in support of the poor.
The Haiti team also will work with MI partners Trinity Church of Jerusalem in Ouanaminthe (next to Dajabon in the Dominican Republic). They will serve amongst the urban poor and share the good news about Jesus Christ with the people there. The Haiti team have already started blogging here. You can find this button which will take you directly to the Haiti team blog on the right sidebar for easy access.
