Last Saturday, both the Haiti travel and home teams gathered together for a retreat in Deale, MD. The teams experienced a day filled with everything from quiet reflection and prayer to partner exercises and fun icebreakers. Members of the home team offered support and words of encouragement for the travelers. The travel team worked on calming their worries and opening their hearts to all that God has in store for them on the journey ahead.
Despite the cool, rainy weather, the retreat lifted everyone’s spirits and strengthened the bonds of camaraderie between team members. The rain even stopped just long enough to take a group photo! The travel team is ready to be present on their trip and to give all the love they have to the children and summer camp at St. Anne’s parish.
Check back here for updates about the trip and please leave your words of love and encouragement in the comments!
