NJB in Haiti

This summer, a group of individuals from NJB went to Haiti for a basketball missions trip. Here’s a highlight from the summer:

“NJB, I wanted to say thanks again for the balls you donated to our basketball mission trip to Haiti. You have no idea how thrilled the kids were on Sunday when we surprised them with them at Church. These kids literally have nothing. They play soccer with cans, have little water, and are lucky to get one meal per day. The conditions they live in are the worst in the western hemisphere.  They told us that no one has ever come to help them in any way. We had 53 kids in the camp, and by the end of the week, they got a grasp of the game, but even more importantly, they gained a little hope. I enlisted 3 older men in the community to continue working with them on their skills. It was such a blessing to be there. We will plan to return next year and continue the work.” – Jerry Jervis
