Haiti at Foundry's Great Day of Service and Sunday services

This past weekend was a good one for Haiti ministries at Foundry. On Saturday morning a group of Great Day of Service volunteers, which included many of our Sunday school children, assembled 200 UMCOR school kits for Haiti.  As you can see in the photos below, it was a wonderful team effort!

And during Sunday services, the Feb. 2012 VIM team reported briefly about our recent trip to Haiti. Team members showed the congregation large photos of our friends in Mellier while describing our activities, and during the coffee hours and Sunday Night @ Foundry we also showed this brief video of our time there.

We emphasized how much we are looking forward to the upcoming visit of our Haitian interpreter, Jean Claude.  He'll be at Foundry on the morning of Saturday, April 14, for a brunch discussion, and after the 11 am service on Sunday, April 15, he'll  be the featured speaker during the VIM team's detailed report-back about our recent trip.

We hope you can join us for these inspiring conversations!
