Maranatha pastors prepare for Haiti missions trip

PALM BEACH GARDENS — Two area pastors will travel later this month to Port Au Prince, Haiti, to assist in building homes, security walls and churches. Eight pastors will make the trip—seven of whom reside and pastor churches in South Florida.

Maranatha Church Senior Pastor Rick Whitter and J Simms, Maranatha’s Executive Pastor, will depart on Aug. 28, for the Caribbean country. The Palm Beach Gardens pastors have made a monetary commitment of $5,000 to build a prefabricated house for an elderly Haitian pastor and his family who have been without permanent housing since the January earthquake. During the weeklong trip the team will also be involved in minor rebuilding projects throughout the city. Additionally, the pastors have committed to bring with them basic supplies and monetary contributions to help the people of Haiti.

“We’re going to do our little part to try to make someone’s life better,” states Pastor Whitter. “The need is major and I can’t imagine taking enough money to cover everything that needs to be accomplished. We can’t do it all, but we can all do something.” He continued, “We hope to take a good amount of supplies for those in need, along with money to help them with practical needs. We are raising money to help fund these projects. Our tickets are paid for, so every penny that is donated will go directly to assist the people of Haiti.”
