We're a non-profit, Christian organization committed to meeting the spiritual, physical, and educational needs of impoverished families in Haiti.
We desire to see future generations of healthy, educated, self-sustaining Haitian communities, living with integrity and striving to make Jesus famous.
To see our vision become reality, God has called us to focus our efforts on these 4 directives.
OUR GUIDING VALUES
As we minister to the people of Les Anglais, these guiding values lead us....
1. The Gospel of Jesus Christ should be both demonstrated and shared verbally, not just one or the other.
2. Relationships are critically important, especially among Christ's Global Church.
3. Developing men and women who can provide for their own needs, and growing self-sustaining communities is the best way to help ease the poverty in Haiti long-term.
4. Food, clean water, shelter, education, and an opportunity to "be a kid" should be afforded to every child.
5. Living a life of integrity is not optional, if we are to offer God His proper glory.
For several years we served throughout Haiti spreading our efforts in many different locations. But in 2010 God called us to put down roots and focus our energy in a single region. We now concentrate serving in the remote region of Les Anglais, located at the western tip of the southern peninsula. It's a bumpy, eight hour drive from Port-au-Prince. Les Anglais is situated on the southern coast and is surrounded by huge mountains that run right up to meet it's beaches. Compared to the U.S., it's a primitive area, with no public electricity, no phone lines, and no running water. Many of the hard-working families farm or fish to survive. Les Anglais is by no means the "easiest" place to serve, but we feel tremendously blessed that God has called us to serve here, and we are very grateful for the depth of the relationships that we've developed over the years...it's these relationships that fuels our passion to continue investing here. Focusing in one area has allowed us to be part of truly changing lives.
In the 4th chapter of John, Jesus is talking with his disciples about the will of The Father and finishing His work. Making a farming comparison, Christ challenges them... "As you look around right now, wouldn't you say that in about four months it will be time to harvest? Well I'm telling you to open your eyes and take a good look at what's right in front of you. These Samaritan fields are ripe. It's harvest time!" We are grateful that God has called us to Les Anglais to work the fields so we can bring in a harvest for the Father's glory!
