Powell Church partnered with Haitian Impact Christian Ministries, http://hicm.us/sites/hicm, in 2013 and purchased land in Langon, Haiti. In 2014, we sent funds for local Haitians to build a church on the land. In 2015, we provided funds for construction to begin on a school beside the church. The school is now open with 150 kids attending with 7 teachers and a principal that we provide the salaries for. The church has over 300 in attendance and is an important part of the life of the community.
Powell Church has taken a team to Chichicastenango, Guatemala each summer since 2009 in partnership with Samaritan Hands. Team activities include construction projects in support of the Hogar del Nino orphanage; conducting vacation bible school in local churches and schools; conducting a women’s bible study; and providing water filters to families so they can have safe, clean water. See http://www.tivawater.com to learn more about the filters.
