Global Activism: New Life for Haiti

We first met Global Activist Fran Leeman in 2009. He’s lead pastor of Life Spring Church in Plainfield, Illinois. Leeman founded New Life for Haiti (NLH) in 2005. They do sustainability and development work in a river valley in Haiti. An NLH team of adult leaders and teens just returned from a trip there. While they were there, they hiked to a remote mountain village called Plaine Marie to paint a school they built there last year. Pastor Leeman, NLH Youth Pastor, Scott Derengowski and teenager Katy Deenihan, will us more about their trip.
