Dream Team 2: Nov 30 – Dec 7
A second Dream Team Missions Week has been scheduled November 30 through December 7, 2013 and we are looking for the special individuals called to participate.
Most teams that visit Child Hope in Haiti are sponsored by specific church or mission communities. The vision of the Dream Team is to provide a way for individuals, couples, and families that are not part of a formal church or mission group to visit Child Hope. The Dream Team will be personally hosted by Bill and Susette Manassero, who will also share their life experiences in Haiti and supervise team activities. Team members will be prepared for the experience through a series of virtual meetings using the internet and e-mail.
The first Dream Team visited Haiti in June and was a great success. “One of the awesome testimonies of this trip was how we all came together and got along so well! I don’t think any team knowing each other ahead of time could have done any better!” observed team member Butch Koenig, who participated with his family from West Chester, Pennsylvania.
Activities during the week will include hands-on work projects, fun activities at the boys and girls homes, assistance with the feeding program, outreaches to the local tent city/ravine communities, and the week will conclude with a special day trip to a Haitian beach resort.
When members of the first Dream Team were asked what they thought others should know after their experience, responses included; “Every one of us should be finding a way to wipe out hunger for kids worldwide. It is achievable in our lifetime!” and “Go to Haiti! You will be so deeply ministered to and so stirred to pursue the kingdom work of Christ.”
The cost of the week is $800 per person, excluding airfare, and includes all on-ground expenses such as room and board (three great meals a day), medical travel insurance, all transportation, a trip to Club Indigo private beach resort, and work projects.
Space is limited, so to insure your place, register online with a $400 deposit per person. You also need to complete a brief application online. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
Also, if this week doesn’t work out for you, another Dream Team week is scheduled for April 4-11, 2014.
You will be staying at Child Hope’s Lighthouse Guest House, a secure walled facility with 24-hour guards, air-conditioned dorms, wi-fi, delicious meals served three times a day, large porches for quiet times and fellowship with other guests, a gift shop featuring handmade items from the Lighthouse kids, and a great staff dedicated to making your stay a pleasant experience.
