Haiti Music and Art Trip 2014
A team from St. Paul's traveled to Haiti mid July to teach music and art to the children at the orphanage and the people of Pastor Widelson's church.  We brought MANY musical instruments and art supplies. Thank you to everyone who has donated towards this trip.

Haiti Missions Thank You
The Mission Committee would like to thank you for your continued support of Pastor Widelson and his orphanage in Haiti. Once again this congregations generosity has enabled us to send our full monthly support directly to Pastor Widelson.

Bus for Haiti
Pastor Widelson requested a school bus for transporting the 45 orphans and members of his congregation to church, and God has provided!  We  received a bus (donated),  filled it with supplies and food and sent it to Haiti.  Thank you to all who helped with this big project.

* June 2017 - Computers and English
* July 2014 - Music and Art

The number one goal of our Haiti mission has always been to provide support for the children of Pastor Widelson's orphanage.  Without this orphanage, many of the children would be starving on the streets of Port Au Prince.  Pastor Widelson and his family not only provide daily basic needs for the children, but also make sure that they all attend school and participate in his church.
