The purpose of the Haiti/NCBM Teams is to assist a church planter in Haiti. This church planting ministry started as a result of the earthquake in 2010. The base of operations for Pastor Rene Romil is Sanitard, Haiti where he leads a church and a school that has 200 students. Teams will assist in completion of rooms above the school to serve as a vocational training area for teenagers and adults, do street evangelism, distribute eyeglasses, and prepare the way for future teams.
One of the main priorities for construction teams is to open the door for church planters in isolated communities to start Bible studies, plant churchesm and make disciples. There will be many opportunities for evangelism, preaching, or equipping conferences for men and/or women.
Teams should consist of 6-14 members. Ideally, the team will have at least one of two people who are familiar with construction and who can help guide their team in ways they can assist Haitians in replacing roofs damaged or destroyed by Hurricane Matthew. Also, teams will do evangelism so it is helpful if some team members are familiar with simple evangelism technigues like Evangecube, The Story, or Roman Road.
The base cost of this trip is $400, PLUS an additional cost for the airline ticket. This includes food, lodging, transportation, translators, and supplemental health/evacuation insurance. (You are also encouraged to consider trip cancellation insurance for your trip at $5.20 per day per person extra cost.) You will need to pay an additional $10 once you arrive at the PAP airport, as an entrance fee. Take extra money. (Price does not account for any incidentals).
Each team will need to also provide funds for ministry materials or other construction supplies. We suggest $3000 per team if the primary focus is construction. It is also helpful if you take witnessing bracelets, Creole evangelism tracts, and school supplies.
The team will be met at the airport by a driver and transported to the base of operations. Volunteers will stay in bunk beds, dormitory style, with separate rooms for men and women. The house is equipped with bathroom and shower facilities. A full list of what to bring will be sent to the team leader.
Participants will need a passport for travel. Please make sure your passport has at least six (6) months validity remaining from the time of your departure from Haiti. If it has less, you will need to obtain a new passport. A visa is completed while in transit to Haiti. In addition, we recommend that every overseas traveler be up to date on Tetanus, Hepatitis A/B and Typhoid. Participants should check with their physician and/or with the Center for Disease Control concerning their recommendations on other immunizations or medicines for travel to Haiti especially mosquito born illness.
