This is our first trip to Haiti. We will be helping with sports camps in, as well as serving a local Haitian orphanage. Cost of 2017 trip is estimated to be $1800 per person. You have the opportunity to go on both trips- Haiti and Dominican- since they are back to back weeks. If you chose to do so, the cost will increase by $700.  Our Haiti Trips are a 3-way partnership with BAG International, Ridgecrest, and HMM all coming together to fulfill one calling.  We would love for you to get involved in some way.  For more info on ways you can support or get involved, email us at bknott@ridgecrest.net.
 

Dominican/BAG/HMM - June 24th-July 1st - Buddy Knott

We will be returning for a third year to partner with HMM in reaching orphans and “the least of these” by giving rice and beans, Spanish Bibles, sports balls and personal hygiene items.  We also will be going door to door sharing the gospel.  We will travel to remote areas in the mountainous region, as well as several Haitian villages, building relationships with the people and connecting them back to the pastors and churches closest to their village.  Each afternoon we will join with the local children near the HMM compound to play sporting games. We also have the opportunity each day to worship with children in song and share the Gospel with all who gather.  Cost of the 2017 trip is estimated to be $1800 per person. Our Dominican Trips are a 3-way partnership with BAG International, Ridgecrest, and HMM all coming together to fulfill one calling.
