GONAIVES - Haiti
Global Commissioned builders made three trips to Gonaives, Haiti, to build a new church building. This project allowed for the church to better serve the 200-250 youth who meet weekly and receive meals from Feed My Starving Children, a ministry based in Minneapolis.
During our visit to Haiti, the country was in rebellion over gas delivery. On the third trip, the team was stranded because all of the roads were blocked off. The only way out was by helicopter. It took two helicopter flights to evacuate our team of sixteen to safety.
This facility, including the foundation and slab work, was furnished by GCB. The erection was done by GCB and IMPACT Church. Our local partner was Renelus Maxime, a Haiti national who lives in NY, but spends most of his time in Haiti.
