Follow-up comments from the congregation stated, "The goal was to help provide for the needs of others, children in particular. We also wanted to bring attention to global/international missions. Our congregation, led by the pastor and lay people, has been a giving congregation. ... The evidence of growth in giving will be in 2013 and the following years. If this effort is made again we can better emphasize denying ourselves something in order to give."

Congregation in Indiana sends team to Haiti to provide help in building shelter for a girls’ orphanage and distribute food to children. (click to open/close)
A non-denominational church in Indiana received a Mission Match Matching Contribution to send five church members to go on a mission trip to Haiti with a Christian relief ministry. The follow-up report stated: "The trip was originally supposed to be a medical/dental mission … God put together a different team than was expected. We had many construction/builders so some of the team worked on a girls’ orphanage to provide shelter for children while others fed beans/rice to hungry children."
Additional follow-up comments were: "The trip was a HUGE success! … The team came back passionate about missions with plans to go back to Haiti as soon as possible. They are whetting the appetite of their church family … in hopes of recruiting more people for mission work. None of this would have been possible without your help!"
