We regret that we have had to postpone the medical mission trip to Haiti scheduled for this month. This action was in response to the advice of Mr. Robert Nichols, Director of SADA (Service & Development Agency) of the AME Church who reports that the coming elections pose a safety concern. The dental supplies from many of you will be stored at the SADA office and will be distributed to the people of Haiti when we are able to reschedule our trip. Please keep our brothers and sisters in Haiti in your prayers.
