All the Details
- April 21-24
- September 30 - October 6
April Trip: On this trip we will spend two days in the city of Calas. Our goal is provide an opportunity for those who have never been to Haiti to get a glimpse of the culture and to begin building relationships. Those who participate will get to eat some typical Haitian meals, worship with our family in Haiti, and relax and play with the church in Calas. This trip will allow more of our church family to glimpse the vision of Gospel reconciliation in Haiti.
September Trip: This trip will be a bit more on the “get dirty” side. We will be entering into the daily rhythms of the church in Calas. School will be in session and the rhythms of the church family will be evident. There will be times of training and learning as well as worship and prayer. We have not taken a trip like this one yet, so we are still working on some of the details.

We will be traveling via American Airlines. Our exact plans will be detailed as we get closer to purchasing tickets. As a general rule, flights out of the US leave early in the morning, and we typically arrive in Port Au Prince around 1-2pm. After landing, there is about a 3.5 hour drive to the place we stay for the week. On return trips flights typically leave around 3pm and arrive in the US around 11pm. We are hoping to fly out of Nashville this year (instead of Birmingham) as prices have dropped recently.
