North Georgia Haitian Community Mourns


Reverend Albert Melifaite and the First Haitian UMC congregation have been deeply and tragically affected by the loss of family members and friends due to the earthquake and aftershocks in Haiti. Reverend Melifaite is traveling to Haiti the week of January 25th to arrange burial for his brother-in-law and two sisters-in-law and to visit his mother and family. 

To assist Reverend Melifaite and his congregation, a special fund has been provided to help our north Georgia Haitian community.  Checks may be sent payable to the Atlanta-Roswell District, 757 Peachtree Parkway, Suite 3, Cumming, GA  30041-9354.  Please mark your check "Haiti--Melifaite."
