Haiti Supplies & Donations Needed THIS WEEK!

Our next mission trip to Haiti is 2 weeks away! With all the attention we have given to tornado disaster relief in Alabama – we are way behind in our efforts to be ready for this Haiti trip. I really need your help in rounding up the supplies needed, as well as, at least $3500 for a construction project we are doing there. At this late date we will also most likely have to buy a good bit of the medical supplies.  PLEASE pray about & see what you can do to help us quickly.

Below is an updated list of supplies needed for our Haiti mission trip. At the bottom is also a list of the money for projects we need to fund-raise right away. We leave on Monday May 30th!!! PLEASE help us round up these supplies & donations. We need these dropped off at Eagle Pointe by Saturday May 21st – so we can pack everything up & have it ready to go.

Also, if you are unable to bring items to Eagle Pointe – again, donations of money are definitely needed (we will be buying a lot of needed supplies in Haiti – easier than carrying it all & supports the local economy). You can donate online HERE  (be sure to select “Haiti – May 2011″)  or email me @ howard@eaglepointe.org
