Haiti Relief Program

Dear Pastor,

We would like to invite you and your church to an evening program on Haiti to be conducted at St. Andrews United Methodist Church, Sunday, January 31st at 6:00 PM.

We would like to share information gleaned from our mission trips to Haiti. (Our daughter and son-in-law were missionaries in Haiti for a number of years, and our first two grandchildren were adopted from Haiti).

We are asking that you bring items that can be given to Gleaning for the World to be sent to Haiti. (See attached list).

We will also be receiving monetary donations that will be sent directly to Haitian missionaries. Please take a moment to look at their websites to see the ministries they perform and the tremendous need they have to continue their ministry to the poor of Haiti.
