Youth and Family Mission Trip to Haiti – Canceled

Because of the current political climate in Haiti, Incarnation’s Children, Youth and Family Staff has decided to cancel the Youth and Family Mission Trip to Haiti that was scheduled for the summer of 2019.

Things to look forward to:

  • A new and different Family Mission Trip opportunity for the summer of 2020.
  • 9th – 12th graders are now welcome on the Milwaukee Mission Trip taking place June 23 – 28!
