(by Mike Taylor of Encompass World Partners & Three Strands' on a recentmedical trip to Haiti jointly with Caribbean Vision Ministries)
Our team of 12 Americans and 5 Haitians were able to meet some of the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of over 350 people. A very high value for Three Strands' teams is to pray with as many patints as possible, and we did just that on this trip.
Stories of abuse, fear, addiction, and hunger were common place for our prayer team. Words cannot describe the positive reaction of people when our pastoral team took interest and prayed with them. Several people asked Christ to become their personal Savior. I like when our teams experience eternal results!
HOUSE OF HOPE ORPHANAGE
The children at House of Hope Orphanage are cared for by wonderful staff people who truly love these 40 kids. The Director, Pastor Abner Joly & his wife & three children, live among these children almost 365/24/7 seeing that their needs are met. Because of our staff and God's provision these children really do see HOPE in an often hopeless society.
And we have some wonderful people who help to provide the financial needs of the children by sponsoring a child for $30.00 each month. That amount of money doesn't cover the cost of operating the Orphanage but it really does help in providing for the needs of the children. We have 15 children at this time who are not sponsored and we would appreciate it if you would consider sponsoring one of our children.
House of Hope Orphanage provides for each child: housing, food, medical care, proper shower & toliet facilities, an education, clothing, spiritual training, adult oversight & supervision, and a place to worship. We also have a farm (garden area) and a rabbit project. We are also working on vocational training for those at an age to leave House of Hope. Your sponsorship of one of the children will yield great results for an average of $1.00 per day. To sponsor one of these children visit: houseofhopeorphange.org and click on the sponsor tab and click on Cap Haitien and you will see a photo & bio of each child and the children who need sponsors. Thank you for your partnership.
We are also praying for ten "Give Them Hope" Ministry Partners in 2013. For a gift of $1,500.00 you can make a real impact for the cause of Christ and for the care of the children of House of Hope Orphanage. These funds will be used to assure the ongoing successful operation of House of Hope, provide funds for needed projects, and help with vocational training for our older teens. You may send "Give Them Hope" funds to: Caribbean Vision Ministries, PO Box 18317, Panama City Beach, FL 32417.
