Over the past year, we have seen our ministry grow in ways that are both encouraging and exciting. Relationships have been built, communities have been engaged and the Gospel has gone forth. Medical clinics have been done and feeding programs have been sustained. Vision has been cast for the future and steps have been taken in the direction God has laid out before us.
For the past year, week in and week out, we have been traveling 45 minutes each way, two days a week to serve in two communities called Marrose and Fond Doux. These are communities that we have been working in for the past 3 years and since having full time missionaries on the ground, our work has become even more intentional. Recently, we were blessed with the opportunity and ability to purchase land in the area of those two communities with the long term vision of building a retreat center for national pastors, lay workers in the church and summer camps for children. While we are working on the long term vision, we need your help though.
Our organization has been renting since it’s beginning and now with land, it is time to start building permanent residences for our missionaries and staff. Right now we are raising funds to build a small house for our single missionary, a house for our missionary family of 5, and 1-2 small houses for our staff members. Along with houses comes the need for a water well (which will be opened to the community) and a fence around the houses. We are looking to raise $150,000 for this first phase.
And this is where YOU have an opportunity to join in the work God is doing. There are 4 ways you can help:
- Pray for us. Pray for the people we are working alongside in building. Pray for resources. Pray for laborers. Pray that all things will go smoothly and that we are yielding to God every step of the way.
- Have us come share with your church, small group, work group or anywhere else there may be people who would be interested in hearing more about our ministry and the need. Also, help us network and connect us with others who you think might be interested as well. We will be taking any and all opportunities as God opens doors! Contact us at email@example.com if you’d like more information.
- Bring teams! We are looking for individuals and groups of people who are willing to give of their time, talents and resources to come and help us build. We can’t do this on our own and if a lot do a little, a lot gets done! Not only will you be able to help us build, we will also incorporate ministry in the area as well! Email us if you’d like to talk about what a team trip would look like and to get that set up.
- Donate financially. There is a cost that comes with building and while the price seems somewhat daunting, we are placing our hope and faith in God and who He will raise up to come alongside of us. If you feel led to invest in the Kingdom’s work in Haiti through Happy Kids International, you can donate here. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us as well.
We all have a role to play. We’ve all been given gifts, talents, resources, and networks. Whether we go, help others go or give because we cannot go, there is a need for what each and every person has to offer. So we’re asking:
