Summary Schedule of Haiti Mission (June 2011)

This month’s mission trip was one week long.  One of the benefits of ministering in Haiti is that you don’t lose any days while traveling.  There is no jet-lag (Haiti is currently on CST), and the flight is less than two hours from Miami.  That means that from just about anywhere in the US, you can travel to Haiti and be on the ground working in a little more than 1/2 a day.

Our June 2011 mission trip began Monday morning and ended late Sunday night, so it was exactly one week (7 days) long, and on every day, the team had the opportunity to minister in Haiti.  Here is the schedule for the trip, which we stuck too almost exactly as planned:
