Homes for the Homeless
Every year, the Haiti Lifeline Program works with the Bethel Church in Dumay, Haiti, to identify families in need of a home. Approximately six work teams travel to Haiti each year to construct basic homes for them. These two-room homes are 10’ x 20’, with a 4’ porch in front. Although these may seem rather modest, they are replacing a tent or crude assembly of tin, wood, rocks, and mud. Support for the Lifeline Haiti programs is provided by the Fairbury, Forrest, and nearby congregations.
Palm Grove Mission
At least one work team each year from the Sabetha and Bern congregations visits the Palm Grove Mission in Puit Sales, Haiti to assist with construction of school and church facilities. This small village is located on the southern coast of the southern peninsula of Haiti, near the Haitian town of Cote de Fur. Teams assist in construction of school and church facilities in Puit Sales and in the surrounding area.
