GRACE THEOLOGICAL INSTITUTE NEEDS A WALLIn January 2010, just days before the earthquake struck Haiti, a building to house Grace Theological Institute was begun. That building is now finished to the extent that it is occupied by the Institute staff and classes are being held there for the student population. Some work continues on the building and we trust it will be completed by the end of December. BUT Grace Theological Institute needs a security wall built around the facility to secure the property for future GO2Haiti Team housing facilities, visiting missionary quarters, and a future medical clinic. We are looking for a GO2Haiti Team from the US to work with Haitian workers to complete the building of the wall the week of January 8-15, 2011. Palmyra,PA Grace Brethren Church has enlisted five committed men to join the GO2Haiti Team and help to complete this project. Three of these men worked on a church building team in Las Cahobas, Haiti, last August and did a wonderful job.
We are looking for 5-7 more men to join this team and help to build the wall during the week of January 8-15, 2011. The value of this wall to the future of ministry in Haiti is hard to describe in words. Haiti is a very unstable country at times and the security and health of visiting personnel and our permanent staff and students is of prime importance to us. Though we have never had any incidents posing danger to our staff or Teams we want to do everything we can to ensure it remains like that. Also of importance is the security of the material items associated with the Institute facility itself.
If you would like to be a part of this important building team in January please contact Dr. Chuck Davis as soon as possible regarding details of the trip and the costs involved. The contact information is located at the end of this letter. If you can’t join us then we ask you to pray for our Team members and for the Caribbean Vision Ministries staff located in the US and Haiti. Thanks.
