New dormitory for visitors on the HCDP farm.
The new pavillion (top 2 photos) and dormitory (bottom photo) were designed and foundation laid out by US volunteers. Haitian workers and a supervising engineer did the construction (the dormitory was constructed with earthbags and rice straw filled wattle tubes then plastered with concrete).
After months of preparation, 367 members of churches of Christ from throughout Haiti came to our development farm for five days and nights of spiritual renewal. Over 25 churches from all parts of Haiti were represented. Many different speakers made presentations, and the meetings went late into the night, and all was accompanied with much prayer, discussion, and praise to God.
New dormitories will help house vistors to the HCDP farm.
New Dormitories on the HCDP Farm
New dormitories are being built on the HCDP farm which will facilitate large group meetings. The construction crew like the wattle tube construction they are using on the dorms (rice straw filled mesh tubes which are being used after the 3-4 feet earth bag base).
