Original Project Scope
The Heart to Heart church in Grand-Goâve ministers to a growing church body and is actively involved in evangelism as well as teaching and equipping church members for ministry. Their beautiful church building was ruined by the Haiti earthquake, and they have a vision to restore the church, and in doing so restore the people’s faith and courage again to overcome difficulties like the earthquake. The damaged church needs to be torn down before a new building can be built, and Heart to Heart needs solid advice on how to move forward.

The original church was a massive building, large enough to hold hundreds of people with upstairs classrooms. It was used in many ways by the entire community: weddings, funerals, marches, gatherings, town meetings, sleeping for the homeless, a refuge for many. It brings comfort to hundreds each week as they currently gather outside the walls and pray every morning for it to rise again out of rubble.

It gives people strength to see the church re-built and it won't stand as a daily reminder of the earthquake and the destruction it brought to the Haitian people. Will you be part of the answer to their prayers?
