December 1st is the deadline to inquire about joining the team that will travel to Haiti (February 18-27, 2015) to perform further renovations to the home of OP missionary Rev.

Needed are volunteers experienced in:
The following letter from Broc provides more details, including the need to raise funds to carry out the work.
Greetings in the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you have been following updates over the last several years from the Hopp family, OPC missionaries in Haiti, then you are probably aware of the transformation that has been taking place at the Kaliko Mission Home. Several teams have participated in various aspects of construction and renovation since the home was purchased.
Construction teams to the mission home have recognized that the kitchen has been in need of renovation. Recently, different individuals have expressed their desire to help meet this need. We currently have a team of experienced cabinetmakers and construction workers from across the OPC ready to serve the Haiti Mission by renovating the kitchen in February 2015. There are several reasons why the kitchen is in need of renovation:
The scope of the project involves redoing the kitchen cabinets and island, installing security windows and door, and tiling portions of the house. A detailed plan and estimated budget have been compiled. The expected cost to complete the project is $20,000. You will find the drawings and budget in the Project Outline posted at www.opcstm.org.
As Project Manager, I am asking that you would prayerfully consider this opportunity to serve our missionaries who have sacrificed much to minister to the church in Haiti. If you would like to take part in helping fund this project, please present this need to your presbyteries or individual congregations for their consideration. A Special Project has been established and all contributions can be sent to the OPC Committee on Foreign Missions with “Kaliko Mission Home KItchen/Security Renovations” in the memo line.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. Thank you for your consideration!
