Haiti Mission Trip 2017
Haiti Mission Trip 2017
PRAISE THE LORD!!
2017 Haiti Mission Trip was a complete success!!
There were countless SOULS SAVED for JESUS...men, women & children!
* VBS was taught by Gail Bain and Jewels Warren.
* Paul Pecott gave a message to the adults.
* Kim Burks-Polland worked with Dondy Alexis, St-ulysse Ebents and Bervens Berson of Haitian Hope at a medical clinic.
* Becky Hammond was so vital helping me with freight and pitching in everywhere we needed her especially at the Vision Clinic we held in both Monac and Cayhonde. Over a 100 pairs of reading glasses and prescription glasses were donated by supporters and Watchman Broadcasting WBPI (Dorothy Spaulding)
* Katelyn Ketelaar gave a seminar on how to use the seed trays (40 lbs of seed trays!!) donated by Florida Cactus owners Mike and Gordon. Seventeen pounds (17 lbs) of seed indigenous to Haitian region were donated by Hope Seeds.
We distributed 35 of Solar Audio Bible in Haitian Creole...some from Galcom Internation and others from Dr Charles Stanley (Thank you, Brenda Reed Cooper)
We were able to see the completed Psalm139LOVE Cooking Center. We painted a big purple heart and hand-prints from the team, children and others.
For the children, we gave out 358 lbs of goodies existing of backpacks, school supplies, 60 pairs of The Shoe That Grows, children's toothpaste & toothbrushes, baby clothes, boy clothes, homemade girl dresses, children's Haitian Creole Bibles, children's musical instruments and Beanie Babies!!
(Thank you supporters, Neiman Marcus and Domino's Promise Sewing Club)
For the widows, we gave a big luncheon at the Church at Maranatha (Thank you Tammy Jureski), praise, worship, dance and Bible lesson! The widows look forward to these luncheons every year. They know how to have church and they enjoy the fellowship of other sister in-the-Lord they haven't seen for a while.
We met the new owners of a huge garden area that will bless three families because of a portable irrigation pump and hose that was donated! We held two Chapin Living Waters Drip Irrigation seminars ( Thank you Doug Carlson) and gave out Hope Seeds to be able to start them off.
We dedicated the well house in Monac that was generously donated by Jeanette Secor.
Last year, we were able to have a fresh water well dug for that village of 1500+ whom have NEVER seen water from a pipe or tasted fresh clean water. What a blessing! The well covering will protect it from the elements and abuse.
We were able to see first hand the broken well next to the church in Cayhonde fixed!
The Pastor, Wilnot Mercier (Haitian Hope) and myself were able to pump the first gush of water!!
Cayhonde is a village of approx 4000+ people. They had two wells installed years ago but they broke and nobody came to fix. Psalm139LOVE was able to install a brand NEW well and fixed the other two that were broke. Those wells are the only source of water they have!!
We also saw single mom, Mirlande (a new babe in Christ) and her little children, 3 yr old Kervens (severely handicapped) and baby Leyla. We've been fixing up her house with more rock and tin roof. We surprised her this trip with a cement floor and paint. Haitians love painted houses but paint is difficult to buy when you have no money and live hours from civilization.
We also held a dinner for the Board Members of Haitian Hope and their families... plus a surprise birthday party for Borgella Jodelin. He's never had a birthday party so he was pleasantly surprised!
We had house worship one night with Pastor Saul at his brother's house. Two former voodoo witch doctors (Pastor Dabou and Nelson) now saved and serving Jesus gave their testimonies.
I was blessed to have so many wonderfully gifted and talented people on my team. We were all in unity with no drama. They poured their heart out with love and compassion for my Haitian families in Monac, Bohoc and Cayhonde. The Lord truly brought together this team! God Bless each one!
I was blessed to have my husband, for the first time, come on this mission trip with me. I discovered he is a male version of me. ha ha He loved it there and enjoyed all the people and the people enjoyed him too. His heart has grown bigger for Haiti since his eye witness account of the needs there.
A big shout out and a BIG GOD BLESS to Wilnot Mercier (Haitian Hope) for his dedication, love, compassion and hard work being the "boots on the ground" to get much accomplished!
We love you Pastor Wilnot!! It's an honor to serve The Lord with you! Thank you for all you do!
And I'd like to say a special THANK YOU to all our faithful supporters of this ministry. We strive to be the hands and feet of Jesus in Haiti. We cannot do this without you! Please share our page with your friends, your Pastor ,your church etc. We're looking for monthly partners. No amount is too small and much can get accomplished in His Name!
God Bless you and thank you for another successful Mission.
Pictures and videos will soon be coming...we have LOTS!!!
In His Loving Kindness,
