This past August, Five Oaks Church sent 12 short-term missionaries to Haiti to work with our partner Global Vision Citadelle Ministries at the All God's Children Orphanage outside of Mirebalais. We have partnered with GVCM since 2005 and continue to support their efforts to spread the Gospel, care for orphans and grow the church throughout Haiti.
From a historical, cultural, and political standpoint, Haitian people have struggled for survival amidst controversy and opposition. The Lord is making a difference through His Word and His people. There is much more that needs to be done.
- Haiti – the poorest nation in the western hemisphere
- Land size – about the size of the state of Maryland
- Population – 7.6 million
- Most Haitian people live on the margin of social life in inhumane conditions

Haiti Trip Update
A Five Oaks team just returned from another successful trip to All God’s Children Orphanage in Haiti. Time was spent mentoring the children on Godly traits and helping them learn their spiritual gifts. The team also worked on small projects at the orphanage and handed out rice and beans while preaching the Gospel to remote areas of the country. A videographer followed the team to capture all the activities. If you wish to learn more about this trip, or come on a future one, please write to Haiti@FiveOaksChurch.org.
