Be a part of this unique VBS and youth outreach team
as they return to Love A Child's campus outside of Port au Prince.
This will be an experience of a lifetime!
This seven day trip will be a busy one. Be prepared for heat and hard work. This team will return for a second year to hold VBS for hundreds of local children. The local language is Haitian Creole and we will work closely with translators for all outreaches.
Check out this video from our previous trips to Haiti:
Saturday: Upon arrival in Port au Prince, the Love A Child coordinator will meet and team and escort them to the Love A Child compound to get settled and a tour.
Sunday: Church services with our hosts, Bobby & Sherry Burnette and time at the orphanage
Monday - Friday: VBS program in the morning for 100's of children and different outreaches in the afternoon. One afternoon/evening will feature a special youth outreach for the teenagers. The other evenings are spent at the orphanage and other local church gatherings and projects.
Saturday: Pack your bags for return to USA
