In late March, 12 men from Friendship Church went to Pignon, Haiti to serve on a mission trip.
They partnered with a sister church in doing six full days of ministry and projects with the church and within the community. The men help build a new house for a widow and her two adopted children. They also built trusses for the roof of the church, along with 12 bunk beds which will be used for youth conferences and housing families in need. And they helped create a soccer field/multi purpose field for the community.
The men visited the local hospital and prayed with the patients, and went to dozens of huts to share their faith, encourage and pray with each family.
The facility is a Feed my Starving Children distribution site, so they were able to help hand meals out to families in need. One of the most rewarding parts of the trip was showing the Jesus film in the town center. Over 400 people showed up and heard the gospel message from the film, and at the end of the movie, the campus pastor shared the gospel message again.
“Our team came back on fire for the Lord and with a heart filled with love for those hurting physically and spiritually both here, stateside and abroad,” said mission trip leader Kyle Whitmore in a press release.
