Women’s Conference

Haiti Women's Conference

Haiti Endowment hosts the annual Women to Women Conference on the compound every summer. Over the past several years the conference attendance has grown to approximately 300 women. We take a U.S. team of women to help host the 4-day conference, working alongside the pastor’s wives from our village churches. Our team assists in teaching sessions, crafts, and even a “boutique”, where the women are blessed with donations of clothing, Bibles, and various gifts.

For the women attending the retreat it is an event that is very significant toward their spiritual growth and encouragement for their daily lives. These women look forward to returning every year for the opportunity to “getaway” and receive Biblical teaching and fellowship with their sisters in the Lord. The women travel from their villages near and far, many of them walking 2-3 hours.

It is such a blessing to witness the women arriving on Saturday afternoon. Many of them walking, riding a donkey, or packed in the back of a pick-up truck. They arrive full of joy and anticipation with their voices singing.

Once they have registered and checked into their assigned rooms, they prepare for their evening meal and first service. They begin each service & teaching session with worship. No instruments needed!

A couple of our past retreat themes have been “For With God Nothing is Impossible” and “Rejoice in Hope!”. The Haitian women go home with their arms overflowing with an abundance of gifts, their hearts full of joy, and encouraged by God’s Word.

Our next “Women to Women” Conference will be Summer 2012.
