This blog was originally set up to track our short term mission project, especially as a way to keep in touch with family and friends of the team members. HATS has run a separate blog site for some time that tracks a lot of the overall mission activities. Rather than duplicating efforts, we're going to wrap this blog up and defer to Karen's existing blog for ongoing news and developments with the HATS mission. You'll find that Karen and her family have already posted several articles there since our team returned, describing the conclusion of the construction project, updates on Serlande's condition, and Karen's experiences with the aftershocks, repairs, and ongoing life in Haiti outside Port-au-Prince.
The site is at http://hatshaiti.blogspot.com, or you can click on this link: HATS Blog Site.
As we close things off, we wanted to highlight some upcoming events the mission team is involved with:
- Saturday, Jan 23, at 6:00 pm, Yarmouth Wesleyan Church will be hosting a welcome home celebration for the team and fundraiser for HATS.
- Sunday, Jan 24, at 8:30 am Atlantic, CBC Radio is scheduled to broadcast an interview with Karen and Gerry
- Sunday, Jan 31, at 10:00 am in Dartmouth, Tim and Heidi will be sharing their experiences during the morning service at Regal Road Baptist Church
Once again, thank you all for your love and support. We urge you to continue to follow the ongoing situation in Haiti through the main HATS blog site, and to do all that you can to help the Haitian people during and following this crisis.
