Since our first visit to Haiti five years ago until now, we have seen God do amazing things. It has been exciting to join God at work in this country. He has expanded and blessed our ministry beyond human dreams. We not only have the Children’s Home, but we also have eight church schools, a Medical/Dental Clinic, invaluable Church partnerships, and a Mission Home which houses almost 40 mission teams per year.
The Lord guided us to a group of sixteen children living in a tent in Jacmel, Haiti in 2010. It was clear that Children’s Hope was to step out in faith and provide a permanent home for these children. Now we have an ideal property which is home to over forty children. We have an outstanding staff, led by our Orphanage Directors, Ken and Maria Peters, who nurtures, provides and loves these precious children. The Children’s Home is central to fulfilling God’s command for us to care for orphans.
After serving in Jacmel, the need to help the local churches provide much needed education became apparent. God clearly led us to several pastors and their church schools. Currently, we are helping educate over 850 children. These students, who would otherwise be unable to attend any school, now receive a quality education, a daily meal, uniforms, school supplies and biblical instruction.
The physical/medical needs seen in Haiti are great, and adequate medical care is scarce and expensive. We prayed that we would be able to help meet the medical, dental and spiritual needs of our neighbors. Through dedicated supporters and construction teams, we are delighted to report that the Medical/Dental Clinic opened in early 2015. The clinic is equipped with six treatment rooms, a pharmacy, a modern laboratory and staff.
Mission Team Ministry
God has drawn hundreds of people and dozens of churches to serve in Jacmel and Jeremie each year. Teams are able to share the Gospel in Haiti in a variety of ways. Team members become the hands and feet of Christ as they provide medical/dental care, construct buildings, assist local churches, conduct vacation bible schools, do evangelism, help in the church schools, and build relationships with Haitians. The Lord has used these short-term missionaries and our wonderful Hosts, Scott and Allison Payne, to make a tremendous difference in countless lives in the name of Jesus
We want you to be a part of our work in Haiti as well. This may be through prayer, sponsoring a child at the Children’s Home, providing financial support for ministry efforts or being part of a mission team. The work in Haiti is financed through child sponsorships and donations. We invite you to partner with us however the Lord leads.
