2009 Haiti Mission Homepage
This was our first trip to Haiti. It was an exploratory trip. We visited the school in Verrettes which Fr. Warren had been funding along with Pastor Ezihkiel. Rio was our guide and translator. We stayed at the former Holiday Inn, right in the center of downtown Port-Au-Prince.
We had the pleasure of visiting with members of Rio's family, sampling the local food, we visited the national museum, we visited the Catholic and Episcopal cathedrals and we even enjoyed seeing the carnival holiday celebration.
It was an amazing trip and now looking back on it, we were very fortunate to have seen Haiti one year before the earthquake that would devastate the country.
