NEW PALESTINE — While many people will be getting ready to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday, a group from Cross of Grace Lutheran Church in New Palestine will be en route to make a  super difference.

They’re heading to an orphanage in Haiti just about the time most people will be getting ready for the big game.

At 4 p.m. Pastor Mark Havel and a handful of church members will board a plane with each carrying a 50-pound bag full of donations for children living in a remote village in Fondwa, Haiti, a town still trying to recover from the catastrophic 2010 earthquake.

The New Palestine group is making the weeklong journey with four members of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Indianapolis.
