2018 Team Shirts

For the past couple of years, our teams have received an HCO T-shirt designed with a Creole phrase. Teams like to wear these during the week of their trip in Haiti as a silent witness to God’s goodness and the hope we have. It’s a way teams can communicate with our Haitian friends in their own language even if they don’t speak a word of Creole. And, the shirts usually spark some conversations in the States, allowing teams to share about their trip, experiences, and faith.

This year, RoRo selected the theme for our 2018 team shirts. He chose a Haitian proverb:

Lom di san fe. Bondye fe san di.

People say things they don’t do. God does things without saying.

1 John 3:16-18 says, “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. If anyone has material possessions and sees a brother or sister in need but has no pity on them, how can the love of God be in that person? Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”

May this be true of each of us, as children of God and as those who love and serve Haitian Christian Outreach!

We hope the phrase is a good conversation starter – and that teams can share the profound truth of actions speaking louder than words. Teams will receive their Team Gear (shirts, luggage tags, name tags, lanyards) about one month prior to their trip.
