Clayton Mission Volunteer in Haiti
Clayton, North Carolina
requests donations and supplies

              A member of Horne Memorial United Methodist Church in 
Clayton who is on her 43rd mission trip to Haiti continues to send 
e-mail messages about the devastation and needs on this poor Caribbean 
nation following earthquake damage.


             The Mission to Haiti team is outside Port-Au-Prince near 
the airport.  Little said the destruction is extensive and there are 
many deaths.  The team she is with includes medical personnel.  They are 
providing all the assistance they can but are running short of medical 
and other supplies.

             The team leader has sent an e-mail that he has talked with 
the Coast Guard in Miami and hopes they can deliver supplies.

             Little requested specific supplies, donations, and prayers. 
  Donations can be made to assist Haiti through designated contributions 
at any United Methodist Church.  Write Haiti on the memo line or write 
Advance # 418325. On-line donations can be made at 
new.gbgm-umc.org/umcor or by calling the Advance office ( 
212-870-3790         212-870-3790).
