God is blessing greatly this summer in Haiti! We’ve had 21 teams since the beginning of May and we will have 7 more over the next 4 weeks. Lives are being changed as the gospel is shared, houses are built, jobs are created, schools are improved, beds are provided, and patients are treated…

We are looking for a husband and wife missionary couple (with no children or grown children) to live full-time at our orphanage in Galette Chambon beginning January 2017. This couple will provide leadership and management to our orphanage and its 15 children and numerous employees. If you or someone you know is interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last month I shared that we have a 7th and 8th grade school and hope to add a 9th grade in September. In order to do so, we need tosponsor a minimum of 37 children to keep the doors open and add that 9thgrade. I am excited to report that we already have 26 children sponsored at $37 per month. A sponsorshippays for a child’s tuition, uniform, books, materials, and, when enough children are sponsored, a meal each day.
If you would help us sponsor the children in our secondary school, please click HERE and sponsor a child that is in the 7th or 8th grade.
Coming Soon – Mississippi Delta
For over five years we have been working in Haiti. God has blessed far beyond anything we thought possible and we look forward to many more years of fruitful labor and partnerships in that country.
From the very beginning of our work, it was in the back of my mind that we would go to Haiti, learn valuable lessons about sustainable community development, and then come home to Mississippi and apply those lessons in our state. After many months of praying, researching, meeting, and planning, I am thrilled to report that we are very close to doing just that. We hope to officially launch a new project in the Mississippi Delta in the next 30-60 days. Stay tuned!
