A team of 31 students and adults from Cropwell Baptist Church, Pell City, in St. Clair Baptist Association traveled to Haiti May 26–June 2.
This was the second team Cropwell Baptist has sent to Haiti in a year. Each time the team has collaborated with Sundouloi Ministries Incorporated to minister to Haitians in the Arcahaie area north of Port-au-Prince.
The team stayed at a compound in Guitton, where it hosted the first men’s conference ever held in the area. The conference lasted three nights and Cropwell Pastor Phillip Burden taught the basics of discipleship to the 100 men who attended each evening.
The team members, who ranged from 13 years old to early 60s, ministered through construction projects, painting, laying a building foundation, rewiring electrical systems and distributing clothes made by members of Cropwell’s Woman’s Missionary Union group.
They also performed dramas and skits for 75–100 students and ministered at churches in Cepres and Nanwòch.
By the end of the trip five Haitians prayed to receive Christ.
Burden said plans are already being made to return to Haiti next summer.
