Haiti Mission Trip Commissioning - Lancaster First UMC

[Members of our Global Missions Team and Pastor Robert commissioning Judy Hug (kneeling) today in worship for her Haiti mission trip.]

Today, we commissioned Judy Hug who will be serving on a mission trip in Haiti this Friday through January 17. She will be going with a mission team from Indian Run UMC located in Dublin, Ohio.  They are being commissioned today at their church as well.

Judy last visited Haiti in1968, as an eighth-grader. Her father who was a doctor helped to start Grace Children’s Hospital in Port au Prince, Haiti.

They will stay at Les Cayes on the southwest coast of the island traveling daily to the small village of Pelerin. In Pelerin, they are planning to help with the building of their new concrete block church around their existing wooden structure. In addition to the construction tasks, they will also be providing Christian activities for the children of the area.
