Mission team returns to Haiti one year after earthquake

Rick Hursh from Grace United Methodist Church in Norwood joined the Sharonville UMC mission team this past Saturday once again to work in Haiti. This was the team that was caught in the 7.0 earthquake last year while building a church. This will be Rick's fourth mission trip under the direction of Christian Service International in the continuing effort to help the people of Haiti. The team will continue the work of other churches throughout the Midwest of building a new orphanage to replace the one damaged by the earthquake.

If you would like to help in this effort, please visit the Orphanage’s site where you can sponsor a room or donate fund to operate the orphanage for a day. If you would like Rick to talk to your church or civic group about his Haiti experience, you can contact him at If you would like more information on Christian Service International, please click here to visit their web site.
