Face to Face in Milot
The Mission team began exploring the idea of an international mission trip. Charlotte Presbytery recommended that we send members on trips with other congregations that already had established international mission relationships.
Joe Zuyus attended a trip with Huntersville Presbyterian Church to Milot, Haiti. During that trip, he made contacts and developed relationships with local missionaries.
Nine Avondalers traveled to Milot to serve meals and update a kitchen for a local school. Relationships were deepened and ideas were formed.
The Mission Ministry team spent time discerning the future of the ministry. In time, the team created a list of questions and goals to be met before Avondale committed to a long term relationship with Milot.
Joe Zuyus and Jim Bowen traveled to Milot to meet with the leadership team of the Milot Meal Ministry and develop a plan for a future partnership.
Avondale began funding the Meal Ministry year-round.
A group of five missionaries from Avondale traveled to Milot to serve, pray, build community, and offer companionship.
2015 and forward.
The team will continue to evaluate our Face2Face ministry, looking for ways to expand and develop the relationship with Milot both immediately and in the future.
The journey continues.
