LeaderResources on Haiti: Hope for Haiti

LeaderResources has just published a new resource on Haiti, titled "HOPE FOR HAITI."  It has a wealth of material in it, references other materials, has activities for youth and adults related to each section, and is an excellent way to inform and challenge your congregation to participate in the effort to rebuild the Church in Haiti. More information can be found on the LeaderResources pages. 

Congratulations to LR on pulling this together!  Here is the write-up from the LeaderResources web pages:



150 pages of education, fun and fundraising resources for congregations that want to learn about and join the campaign to rebuild the Cathedral complex in the Diocese of Haiti. 

This resource packet contains lesson plans for adults, youth and children -- several can be used with intergenerational groups. You'll learn about the country, the diocese, and the ministry of the church in Haiti. You can also explore some of the fun cultural aspects of Haiti: the tap-tap busses, fanal lanterns, proverbs, jokes and folk tales....and recipes to host a Haitian feast. Plus you'll get over 25 fundraising ideas, including detailed instructions and recipes for the trendy "Cupcakes and Cake Balls Fundrasier" and a Guide to Fundraising  to help you get organized -- tools you can use for years to come.

This resources is being offered "at cost," as is the work of all the partners in the Haiti campaign. Once we have paid our out-of-pocket expenses, any additional income will go to the Diocese of Haiti.
