Bill is a retired I.T Professional, general handyman and has worked with Habitat for Humanity a few times and done some construction and remodeling for his home and other properties. We've known Bill for several years at Federated Church and he's heard of our missions.  He feels blessed with his life and asked if he could join us so he could give back.

Here's the first update from Bill.
Friday 3/30 Dave I and I arrived in Port au Prince about 11:00am. We stayed in the airport awaiting arrival of remaining team members. At around 3 pm after all the team had arrived we departed for Pierre Payen.
The mission house.

Evening was get  acquainted time for newbies.  There are 7 on the construction crew.
The dining room/meeting room

Saturday we started the projects.  There was a trip to get supplies.
I felt like the Beverly Hillbillies with the truck loaded down.  

There was a trip for supplies as indicated by the photos.

Sunday Haitian workers helped dig a trench under the driveway to run new water lines while several of the group attended church.  

We are working on electrical and some plumbing issues.
The work progressed on the water project with some malfunctions including a couple of pipe ruptures. - Bill R.

Water and electricity have been an ongoing problem, not only at our mission at Pierre Payen, but throughout the country so we continue to work on infrastructure.

Hello Medical Mission Team. I am a Pastor from Mumbai, India. I am blessed and feel privileged and honored to get connected with your Organization and know the kind of work and the mission you are involved. I love getting connected with the people of God around the globe to be encouraged, strengthened and praying for one another. I have been in the Pastoral ministry for last 37 yrs in this great city of Mumbai a city with a great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reachout to the poorest of poor with the love of Christ to bring healing to the brokenhearted. We also encourage young and the adults from the west to come to Mumbai to work with us during their vacation time. I am also incharge of the mission Hosptial in the central part of India. We would love to have your medical Team coming to our Hospital and help us in the areas where we are lacking. Since I am coming to the United States I will be so happy to meet your team and discuss about your possible visit to our mission hospital in Central India. My email id is: dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede. Looking forward to hear from you. God's blessings on your team as you respond to the humanitarian needs across the World.
