"Rubble Homes In Haiti"

Rubble Home, Replacement Home Web Site:

   In January 2011 a 14 member team from ABCOPAD traveled to Grand Goave, Haiti to assist in Earthquake Disaster Relief efforts.  The primary focus of the mission trip was to care for those left homeless as a result of the earthquake.  Through a partnership with Conscience International and International Ministries, the ABCOPAD built one Rubble House and started the construction of two addition Rubble Homes. 
  Since the January 2011 mission trip, many congregations and groups in ABCOPAD have taken an interest in the Rubble Home Mission Project taking place in Grand Goave, Haiti.  Local church families have raised funds to build a rubble house (about $4000.00 per home).  Both the AB Women and the AB Men adopted this ministry to Haiti as their primary mission focus for 2011 - 2012.  ABCOPAD has now assisted in sending 4 mission teams to Haiti since January 2011 (Nov. 2011, January 2012 and February 2012.)  Another trip to Haiti is scheduled for October 2012 with two additional trips in 2013 already planned.  Below are links to both completed mission trips and upcoming mission trips.

Mark Mahserjian-Smith, ABCOPAD Regional Pastor for Mission and Communication at 570-435-2001 or email  Learn more about personally joining a mission team or having your congregation or ministry team sponsor a trip.
