Haiti Missions 2010 - 2013
January 24, 2013
The Vineyard Church took a team of adults to Hati each year from 2010 - 2013. On each of these trips, the team's goal has been to help people impacted by poverty, death, and disease. Since 2011, we have been partnering with Love A Child, a non-profit Christian humanitarian organization that has been operating in Haiti since 1991. Vineyard teams have helped to build housing for earthquake survivors, as well as participate in distributing food to thousands of disadvantaged families in Haiti. Check out each trip's journals below for detailed entries of what happened on each trip.
Our initial exploratory trip to Haiti was a huge success! Clint Schwartz and Steve Schwartz traveled to seek the heart of Jesus as we determine our part to play in sharing the compassion of Christ and the love of Christ to these lost and broken people.
Our first “team trip” to Haiti had 11 participants attend from The Vineyard. While in Haiti they worked on both construction and ministry projects. Thousands of meals were served and hundreds of Bibles we distributed!
Our second “team trip” to Haiti had 17 participants attend from The Vineyard. While in Haiti, they partnered with Love A Child, a non-profit Christian Humanitarian Organization, to finish construction on a 100+ of permanent homes for earthquake victims. Because the “punch out list” for the homes was completed early, they were able to participate in some food distribution efforts, along with spending extra time with the children who currently live in the “tent city”.
On this trip, we had 24 Vineyard volunteers travel to Hati. We partnered with Love a Child once again to build permanent homes for earthquake victims. Throughout the trip, team members were also able to pray with locals and host a few church services.

This year, we had 13 team members travel to Hati for a week of hard work. Over the course of the week, the team was able to serve with Love a Child yet again and help with food distributions throughout the city.
