Location: Haiti, Latin America & the Caribbean
Ministry Focus: After working in Ivory Coast for nine years, the Charbonneaus felt called to Haiti in 1996. They began a church for children and youth, where weekly meetings are held. The average attendance has been 1,400. Children walk long distances to attend these services. They play games, worship, and hear God's Word. After being fed spiritually, the children receive a meal of pasta or rice and beans, a national dish. The Charbonneaus also started a branch of the ChildCARE Plus sponsorship program in Haiti. As of July 2016, approximately 650 children were sponsored. Their goals include giving the church to the nationals and reaching thousands of children for Jesus.
