The Orchard Oxford: Growing Deep and Branching Out in Haiti

5471207_640x640The Orchard Oxford is headed back to Camp Marie, Haiti!

Again we are partnering with 410 Bridge to connect with our neighbors in Camp Marie.  Last spring a team of 15 was able to live, learn, and pray with the people of Camp Marie and we are excited to return with another 15 member team during Spring Break, 2017.  Here are the details:

When: March 13th – 19th, 2017
Cost: $1945 with a $150 deposit due by 11/6/2016

Team members will be given support to help with fundraising and to help prepare for living, learning, and serving in Haiti.  And also to figure out how to use the gifts we have been given to serve others (1 Peter 4:10). To get a peek at what we did during the last trip and an idea about what we may do during this upcoming trip, check out these blog posts from

There are more ways to get connected with our neighbors in Camp Marie besides participating in the trip.  Most urgently are needed funds to help with relief efforts from Hurricane Matthew.  Other ways to connect are through child sponsorship, community sponsorship and just praying for the people of Haiti and Camp Marie.
