Haiti and Kenya Team Retreat

Haiti Travel & Home Teams
This past weekend, both travel and home teams for Haiti and Kenya gathered together for a retreat. The location was lovely Deale, MD and the weather couldn't have been more beautiful! The Haiti and Kenya travel teams will represent our parish on mission trips this summer while the home teams will support and encourage them on their journeys.

The day was intended to prepare the travelers for their trips in more ways than one. One activity focused on contemplating scenarios that could very well happen along the way. Another session brought team members together for partner and group discussions. There was also time built in for quiet, solo reflection and prayer. The home teams provided support and words of wisdom for the travelers. The day was filled with making new and strengthened friendships!

The teams also enjoyed a delicious lunch of Kenyan and Haitian dishes to give them a taste of what foods they might be eating on their trips.

Our Haiti travelers will depart on July 8 and the Kenya team on July 21. Please keep them in your prayers as they prepare for this special journey.

Keep checking back here for trip and travel updates while the teams are away.
