LOCATION: Haiti, Latin America & the Caribbean
TRANSFORMATIONAL IMPACT: Our passion is to see children healthy, well-nourished, educated, and serving the Lord.
MINISTRY FOCUS: God gave us a mission to invest into the lives of children. The well-being of children is central to my ministry. As traditional gender rolls are highly enforced here, it’s common to see boys in the streets, often in rags, looking for an occupation, while girls stay at home to complete housework. Young girls are extremely vulnerable to sexual abuse, as they are raised to be submissive and overlooked. Children often live with only one parent or an aunt or uncle who does not have compassion for them, and their houses are frequently without electricity, leaving them vulnerable to the scorching heat.
Through your partnership, we have built a school and a church. The school, sponsored by Child Care Plus, a branch of ERDO, welcomes nearly 700 children a year from kindergarten to grade 13. After graduation, many pursue higher education due to the impact made by qualifies, devoted teachers. Our school welcomes children and young people from 4 orphanages, including boys and girls from the street. We want to begin investing in community welfare by partnering with other schools to provide quality education and care to the children within the region. The church has become a haven for the children within the community, providing care, security, and resources for them and their families.
YOUR IMPACT: Your partnership will provide children with an education, access to safe spaces, and mentorship from a host of loving believers. By experiencing the love of God, we will launch these children to a brighter, hope-filled future.
MINISTRY HISTORY: In past years, we have served in international evangelization efforts, and we pastored a church in Quebec.

We have been in Haiti for 26 years.
