Seven congregation members of Statesboro First Presbyterian Church, one Georgia Southern University student and two pastors journeyed to Haiti in mid-June to assist with the ongoing rebuilding efforts of the earthquake-ravaged city of Port-au-Prince. Dan Lewis, pastor of First Presbyterian, and Clark Scalera, another pastor friend who has prior experience in Haiti, led the team from Statesboro and partnered with the Haiti Outreach Ministries on site. “Perhaps more importantly than the building projects, we came to learn from our Haitian brothers and sisters what it means to have faith in the midst of adversity,” Lewis said.
