From the Office:
Mike Wilkins participated in a wonderful mission trip to Haiti this past October and is now sharing some pictures from his adventure. His team of 10 volunteers traveled to Haitian Christian Outreach in Peredo, Haiti and helped expand the medical clinic/hospital. The hospital is the only hospital on “the other side of the river.” Patients often walk several hours to receive care. The photos reflect the team pouring the concrete foundation for the 4,000 square foot expansion, as well as Mike preaching at a Sunday worship service. Mike’s next mission trip will be in Nairobi, Kenya this month.
