All Saints' work with Mission of Hope International in Haiti
In March of 2014 All Saints' sent a team of "music missionaries" to the Mission of Hope International located in the village of Thozin in Grand Goave, Haiti. As music missionaries they spent five days working with the children in the Pre-school and primary school teaching music. They sang and shared Godly Play stories with the younger children (Pre-school through 2nd grade), and begin to teach notation and the recorder to the older children (grades 3 - 6).
While in Haiti All Saints' agreed to begin sponsoring the Kindergarten Class at the Misison School, sending $150.00 each month to help pay the salary of a teacher and provide materials that are needed.
We have returned several times to continue the work of music teaching and to build deeper relationships with all the children in the school, but especially our class!
The son of the mission team (Lex and Renee Edme) is currently studying in the United States and living with our Co-Rectors.

Stories from our Community
"Two years ago I went to my first Agape meal with my son, who was five at the time. To my surprise, when it was time to pass the peace during the service, he greeted those near by, and then proceeded to greet others around the room, adults and children, known and unknown. I realized then that my faith community here at All Saints', was also his community."
