Service Trip to Be Like Brit Orphanage,
Grand Goave, Haiti
May 12-19, 2018

Sponsored by the Board of Outreach, First Congregational Church of Woodstock, UCC

Please consider joining us on this amazing service trip to Haiti; 12 participants can be accepted in the group.  Included in the program fee of $1950:  round-trip airfare, emergency medical and political evacuation insurance, all lodging, meals and filtered drinking water, project supplies, field trips, t-shirt and copy of the book, Heartache and Hope in Haiti:  The Britney Gengel Story, on ground transportation, and security.

Group meetings will be held prior to the trip to learn about the culture of Haiti, the language, religious practices, and the story of the orphanage (now called Brit’s Home).

We will build a shelter/home for a family on the mountain behind the orphanage as well as have plenty of time with the 66 children (dance parties, worship practice, singing, outdoor play, games).  Afternoon activities include field trips to the beach, an outdoor market, a voodoo temple, and a fishing village.  On Sunday morning we will go to church with the children.  Evening reflections on the roof overlooking the sea end our day.

Application and first deposit of $100 due:  November 1
Remaining payments due on February 15 and April 15
