2011 OCC Haiti Mission Trip

Thanks to Therese Miller for this incredible video of the OCC Haiti Mission Trip.

Fifteen members of Oakland Christian Church travelled to Haiti in January 2011 to assist Sonlight Ministries -- specifically, our friends and church members Steve and Beth Puricelli, who are serving as missionaries in Port-de-Paix.

(The photo at right shows the Puricellis on a street in Port-de-Paix.)

OCC team members worked with all age groups of students attending Sonlight Ministry's school, where Steve and Beth teach.

Among the other places visited by the team were an orphanage and a prison. OCC members also helped with maintenance and with construction of a church building. They had the opportunity to experience the Haitian culture and the privilege of worshipping with the Haitians.
