2022 Haiti Work Team - The past couple of years we have not been able to send a work team to Haiti for construction work due to unrest and COVID restrictions.  We would like to gauge the level of interest from the church for planning a team to go in February of 2022 so we can let the MEBSH construction department know our plans.  If we do not have enough individuals interested in filling up a team we may offer up our week to one of our other church congregations.  No commitment is needed at this time but if you have any interest in joining the team for 2022 please let Bro. Jonathan Hodel know by July 14th.
