2013 Salt and Light Outreach to Haiti Recap
Saturday, June 01, 2013 - Monday, June 10, 2013
Vernon Grounds Institute of Public Ethics
Salt & Light 2012-2013
Children at Risk and Poverty - Trip to Haiti
In Partnership with the Vernon Grounds Institute and the Church Mobilization Movement
The 2013 Salt and Light Haiti event was a great success! The team worked together, along with the help of Compassion International Haiti, to train 160 individuals during the two day seminar. These individuals work with children throughout Haiti who are victims of traumatic experiences. Some of those present travelled six to seven hours to attend the event and be taught by Dr. Theresa McGee and her daughter Shelley McGee Quiles.
Coming face to face with poverty was a sobering experience for the team. Among many in similar situations the team met a single mother raising her four children just after her husband had passed away. They were encouraged by her faith when, in response to their request to pray for her, she asked that they pray for her spiritual life.
Before leaving to return to Denver, the team was able to share the gospel with a woman and a twelve-year old boy who both gave their lives to Christ.
