Village of Hope is a Christian fund raising organization committed to supporting programs and ministries that promote excellence in education, spiritual growth and primary health care of Haitians in need. We believe the value of education, the impact of primary health care and the power of spiritual growth will result in the empowerment of Haitians.
Peace is part of the broad network of churches throughout the country who support the Village of Hope. We send volunteers twice a year, give financial support, sponsor children’s school fees, and have two members on the Board of Directors.
Village of Hope is an interdenominational 501(c)(3) organization supported by many churches, organizations and individuals throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.
Many members of Peace Church have been on mission trips to Haiti with the Lazarus Project and sponsor children at Village of Hope School. If you would like to go on a mission trip or sponsor a child of your own, please contact Marni Maree, a member of Peace and Village of Hope Board Member, email@example.com.

JOIN OUR CHRISTMAS SEASON MISSION TEAM
For the last several years I have had the privilege to be a member of the Christmas mission team to VOH. Anywhere from eight to twelve of us travel to Haiti to sort, organize and deliver the hundreds of gifts sent from all over the USA to the children and staff at the VOH school in hopes of helping to make their Christmas a special one. This is one of the most rewarding and memorable experiences I have had and one you will never forget after seeing the smiling faces of the 600 plus students receiving their gifts. You are not only rewarded with the gift of giving but also by the children who perform for us songs and dances as each class gets up on stage to entertain the team. This is done right before our own Santa (Papa Noel) arrives to kick off the gift giving!
It is truly a celebration you will never forget. This is the first year we have openings on the team that will allow others to experience this Haitian Christmas celebration. If you have ever thought about joining a mission team this is a good one to start with since you see almost all the children, staff and our facilities at VOH. We also will do a Bible story, hands on craft and food distribution at a local Haitian village so you can see first-hand how many people live in Haiti. As a bonus you will travel in mid-December when the Caribbean weather is at its best and escape the northern winter!
The dates of the trip are Dec 8-15, 2018. The cost is approximately $1200.
Please contact Marni Maree our team leader at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can join us. You will be a blessing to our team and to many others as you work as Christ’s hands and feet in Haiti.
