Welcome to the Haiti Partnership!

 
Since 1995, the Haiti Partnership of the Wyoming Annual Conference has been sending volunteer mission teams to Haiti to build schools and churches, to provide humanitarian aid, and to do God's work along side the Haitian people. So much has been accomplished and so many lives have been changed. But there's still so much left to do.
 
Men and women age 17 and older are invited to join the Haiti Partnership as a mission team member. This year, we are sending six teams and over 65 Volunteers in Mission, many of whom are traveling to Haiti for the first time. Each volunteer raised $1,100 for their expenses, and the Great Fifty Days Offering taken by local churches helped to pay for project costs and other ministries.
 
For more information about becoming a Volunteer in Mission (VIM) volunteer, click on the links at left, or email Roger Richards at [email protected].
 
Local churches are invited to participate in the Haiti Partnership by providing financial assistance or by making school bags. Check out the links for more information.

HISTORICAL CONTEXT OF THE HAITI PARTNERSHIP

 

Haiti has long been known as the poorest county in the Western Hemisphere. They have a very sad history of exploitation by outsiders and by fellow Haitians. But being so close to the United States, Haiti has also been a very popular site for Christians who want to be Volunteers in Mission (VIM). In any given year, as many as 100 United Methodist teams from across the country travel to Haiti.

Those who have traveled on any of these trips have been inspired by the Haitian people who work out of hope and faith rather than out of despair in the midst of their severe poverty.

Great things have been accomplished in recent years in our current project. Many lives have been touched. There are more than 140 students active in a school where there was just a field of scrub brush in 2004. Our mission is alive and growing! We pray that God will continue to use us as vessels for extending God's love to those in great need.

You are encouraged to pray for the people of Haiti and our mission with them.
