Prayer requests: Pastor sick and fever spreading

We received word today that some of our dear friends in Haiti are suffering from illness. Pastor Louinet, who works relentlessly for our schools and local churches in Haiti, has come down with an unknown ailment that keeps him in constant stomach pain. Unable to eat and experiencing a strange rash on his face, Pastor […]

Christmas Opportunity: the Story of Jesus for every Hope in Haiti Child

This Christmas, you can bring the story of Jesus Christ to a young Haitian child. For a young nine-year old in rural Haiti, having a book that is all your own is a special gift in and of itself. Having a book that tells the most important message there ever was would be a God-send, […]

Resting before the storm

08/23/12 I got one final phone call from Haiti this evening. Dixie called from Port au Prince where they had just arrived after a wonderful, relaxing, beautiful day on the beach. Tonight the group will rest up in the comfort of Byron and Shelley’s home. They are excited to head home tomorrow! Continue to pray […]

A helper in the chaos

Another successful day of camp is over! Even more kids showed up today and Dixie said it was a bit chaotic but still good. A close friend and local guy, Lukman, has been an amazing and incredible help over the last several days with the camp. He’s great with kids and has done much to […]

A night of celebration!

What a full day for our team! Dixie said camp was good. Crazy, but good. With probably close to 200 kids attending, the culture and language differences, the heat and so much more, one can only imagine! 🙂 Even after camp was over for the day, the team played with the several children who stick […]

A Sunday in Nan wo: Who is that behind the pulpit?

Dixie (my mom) actually CALLED me today from Pastor Louinet’s phone! It was great to hear her voice (though muffled and sounding very distant) and to hear that all is going well. It has been a pretty laid back day for the team and something of a day of rest and time to relax before […]

How to help a child in school this year

What would you think if you showed up for the first day of school and the teacher told you that you’d have to memorize everything on the chalkboard because there are having to do without pencils and paper? This year we have a great need for more school supplies for our Nan wo and Kawo […]
