2012 has been a year of blessings

From Haiti Care Mission
As 2012 comes to a close, it is quite exciting to see what the Lord has done through Haiti Care Mission in the past twelve months.   It has been a year of abundant blessings. 
This year, the ministry has made three trips to Haiti to share the love of Jesus with children and to serve alongside partner missionaries.  During each of those trips, we personally ministered to children with the love of Jesus.  We have had wonderful opportunities to reach out to churches, schools and villages with Christ’s love.
In 2012, Haiti Care Mission has delivered over 13,000 items to children around the globe.  We are very excited about that number. That number represents 13,000 lives touched for Christ.  To us, that number is an indication of how God is using Haiti Care Mission to comfort His children.   We feel very honored and blessed to be part of God’s work in Haiti.
In addition to Haiti, HCM items have gone to seven different countries in 2012. The main focus of HCM is to serve the children of Haiti but when opportunities arise to share the love of Jesus in other countries, we proudly link arms with teams or missionaries.  God has made some amazing connections for us this year and we are grateful.
As we close the books on 2012, we are extremely humbled by the outpouring of support that we have received through new churches and individuals that have joined our team and the number of new sewing groups that have come along to serve with us.  Without the hard work and labors of MANY, Haiti Care Mission would not be an effective tool that God can use. 
Thank you to each one of you who has contributed through your labors, gifts, and prayer support.  We appreciate each of you and look forward to another year of serving with you to bring Christ’s love to the children of Haiti.
Prayer requests and praises
· Praise God for an incredible year of blessing the children of Haiti and beyond.  Over 13,000 children were blessed this year.
· Praise the Lord for the hard working volunteers who create the gifts of love.  The number of sewing groups continues to grow. 
· Praise the Lord for many successful trips to Haiti this year by the Anderson family and others who have left the comforts of home to serve.
· Please pray for God to continue opening doors of opportunity for HCM.  Pray for new ways to serve and new missionaries to partner with.
· Please pray for the Lord to lead and direct HCM through 2013.  This is His ministry and we strive to follow His leading.
· Please continue to pray for the people of Haiti.  They are the focus of this ministry and we pray that they would feel God’s love and presence in their lives.
Thank you for all of the prayer partners.  We appreciate you.

Fall Trip to Haiti

     Last month we had the privilege of traveling to Haiti to personally minister to over 1200 students.  It was a complete joy to meet and encourage these precious children.

     While in country, we were blessed to work alongside veteran missionaries, Pastor Tom and Beverly Brumbley at Evangelistic World Outreach.  After working several days at their headquarters in Port au Prince, we traveled to Petit Goave and Arnoux to meet the children.  

     Our first stop was in Petit Goave.  We spent time with each class sharing a Bible lesson and distributing gifts.  Every child in grades K-6 received a backpack full of goodies, and the children in the pre-k classes received a handmade wooden toy.  The backpacks were all packed with a booklet of the Books of John and Romans (in Creole), a tooth care kit, and pencils.  All of the children were thrilled to receive the gifts of love.

     Next, we headed to the village of Arnoux.  Arnoux is located in the area heavily affected by Hurricane Sandy.  There was extensive damage to the roads on the way to Arnoux but it was well worth the effort to get to this school/church.  We were blessed to be able to meet with every class in the school (pre-K to 9th grade).  Once again, we shared a Bible lesson and distributed items to the students.  Thanks to the efforts of all of the sewing groups, we were able to furnish every student with a gift of love.  The boys were very happy to receive a new pair of shorts or a new t-shirt, and the girls, of all sizes, were able to receive a dress.  We were also given  several cases of  shoes to distribute to the little ones.  All of the students appreciated their gifts and showed great care as they folded the items to store them in their bags.  At recess time, we saw many of them in the play yard wearing their new clothes over their school uniforms.

     We were truly blessed to spend time at these schools with the students.  The smiles we shared and songs we sang together are motivation to keep moving forward and reach more children for Christ. 

     Later in the week, we had one more opportunity to share the love of Jesus with the students of the headquarters school in Port au Prince.  At this school, we met with the classes from pre-K to 2nd grade.  We were able to bless them with a combination of items (dresses, shorts, shoes, hair ribbons, underwear). Along with the items, we were able to share a little message of God’s love.  It was a joy to see their excitement in receiving. Their smiles and words of thanks melted our hearts. 

     We feel very blessed to have these opportunities to share the love of Jesus with these precious children. It feels like each trip we take that we take you, our supporters and sewing groups, with us.  You are a huge part of what we are able to accomplish.  Thank you for supporting us and the work of Haiti Care Mission. 

     We pray that each of you has a blessed Christmas season and you take the opportunity to share the love of Jesus with those around you.

Prayer requests and Praises

Praise God for His protection and blessing over us as we traveled to Haiti this month. 

Praise the Lord for all of the people who contribute to this ministry.  Together, we are making a difference in many lives for Christ.

Please pray for the people of Haiti.  May their hope  and strength be multiplied.

Please pray with us for the missionaries we are in relationship with. Pray that the Lord would bless them richly for their acts of sacrifice.

Please pray for us as the directors of Haiti Care Mission.  As we enter year two, we pray that we would hear from God and follow wherever He leads.

 Grace and Hope had fun making friends everywhere we went.
 Teaching a lesson in Petit Goave.
 The pre-K class was so cute.  This is why I love my job. I get to love on them.
 Lance gets into the action of distributing items and meeting the older students.
 At recess time, the kids came out wearing their new dresses.
We had the opportunity to take this boat on a ride across Lake Mirogoane after a full day of ministry.  Haiti is beautiful in so many ways.
Thank you for all your prayers.

 Merry Christmas to all!

Trips, Trips and Trips

     It has been another very busy month for us and for Haiti Care Mission.  God has taken Haiti Care Mission to new places this month and He has also opened more doors.

     The beginning of this month, Lance led a team of eight people to the country of Guatemala.  The team stayed very busy. They went on door to door medical/evangelism visits, they helped lead evening worship services, they worked with the local church members to build a church and they distributed dresses and clothing.  It was a wonderful opportunity for all and a great chance to share the love of Jesus with the children of Guatemala.  Lance said that the children and parents were very grateful for the gifts of love. 

     The end of this month, Lance and Pastor Troy French took another trip, but this time, they went to Haiti.  The purpose of the trip was to complete the electrical work on a cafeteria and preschool at the headquarters of Evangelistic World Outreach in Port au Prince.  The Brumbleys, the directors of EWO, were our hosts for our last trip. We have been greatly influenced by the work they are doing.  Lance felt a very strong call to return to Haiti this fall to help them with this project, and he was very blessed to have the helping hands of Pastor Troy alongside him.  During the trip, the men brought several hundred items into the country, which we will distribute when we return to Haiti this month.

     In between these two trips, we have been very busy making preparations and packing for our family trip. We will be bringing over 1400 items to distribute to the children. Due to the recent storms, we are not sure which areas we will be traveling to but we know we are willing to go wherever God directs us.  Our prayer is that God will lead us to the places where He needs us to go.   The needs of the people of Haiti just became more intense so we pray the timing of our visit will bring hope and comfort to those we can reach.

   Many of you are probably wondering how the country of Haiti has fared from Tropical Storm Sandy. The pictures in the media tell the story.  The storm has caused a lot of damage.  The people in the south were the most affected. There are many who lost their crops (that is, their only source of income and food for their families) and some have lost their homes.  The flooding has caused major problems with travel and getting help to the areas that need it.  The country will be entering another period of rebuilding and repairing.  Please join us in praying for the people of Haiti.  Pray that God will fill them with hope, strength and joy as they face this challenge. 

Praises and Prayer Requests

Praise God for His protection over Lance and the teams as they traveled to Guatemala and Haiti last month.

Praise the Lord for partnerships and connections.  Again, this month God has brought us into new relationships and opportunities with churches and missionaries.

Please pray for the people of Haiti.  Tropical storm/hurricane Sandy has done a lot of damage to the country.  Pray for laborers to help rebuild and strength for the people who have lost everything again.

Please pray with us for a friend and her team that is traveling to Ecuador this month. They will be doing VBS activities and taking HCM items to share with the children.

Please pray for our family as we travel to Haiti for 8 days this month.  We covet your prayers for divine health, protection, and strength; as well as prayers for God directed opportunities.

Please pray for more monthly supporters to join our team.
As always, thank you for your faithful support and prayers.
Be Blessed, Lynn and Lance Anderson and family

Haiti Care Mission update

     This month we decided to combine our family newsletter with the Fall edition of the Haiti Care Mission newsletter.  We hope you enjoy reading about all that is happening.

     Over the past three months, God has been using Haiti Care Mission to pass the message of Jesus’ love to LOTS of children.  As we sat back to reflect over the past few months, we were really amazed to see the number of items that have been received and shipped recently to the children of Haiti and beyond.

     In the July newsletter, we challenged sewing groups to consider making a few new items.  We are very pleased to report that boys shorts, backpacks and large-sized dresses are coming to the mission in large numbers.  Several groups have been working on these items and we are really excited about beginning to distribute these new items.  We already have missionaries who are asking for the items so we know they will be well received.  Thank you to each group that took on the challenge and started working on these new projects. 

     In total, over the past three months, we have received over 4500 items at the mission headquarters.  Over seven hundred backpacks (both hand-made and custom ordered) have been shipped to us, and are now in the hands of Haitian school children. They will be a huge blessing to the students as they start their school year and a daily reminder of God’s love.

     We have also received hundreds of boys shorts, large-sized dresses, sleeping mats and hand made wooden toys.  We are very blessed to have a constant supply of boxes being delivered to our front door.  Every box we receive  ignites our heart because we know that each item holds the opportunity to share the love of Jesus.

     As we looked over the number of items we received, we thought it was also important to report the number of items that have been placed in the hands of children in Haiti and beyond.  Over the past three months, Haiti Care Mission has shipped 4700 items to children all over the world.

     We have been sending items via several different methods. We have reduced shipping costs dramatically as we have been using more efficient methods of delivery.  For example, over 2000  of items have been delivered via sea container with a partner ministry.  Others have been shipped directly to the missionary using Agape Flights, and still others are being delivered by short term missions teams. 

     Lance will be leading three of these trips in the next three months.  One team will be going to Guatemala with 1000 items to share with the children in the villages.  The other two trips will be to Haiti; one in October and one in November.  As a family, we will be together for the November trip.  During that trip, we plan on ministering to children in several churches and schools.  We are really looking forward to the opportunity to personally distribute these items and share Jesus with the children.

     We have also had several other short-term teams take items to the mission field.  They have shared Haiti Care Mission items in Peru,  Costa Rica, and Kenya.  We are very excited about these opportunities to share with children all over the globe.  These tools are so important to sharing the message of hope with children and we embrace these chances to share them with teams who we know will use them to teach the children about Jesus. 

     Thank you to all of our sewing groups who have been faithful in producing these beautiful gifts.  Our prayer is that the seeds you are planting into the lives of the children will produce an abundant harvest in the Kingdom.  We are very blessed to have fellow laborers linking arms with us to reach His children.  

Prayer Requests and Praises

We know that a good prayer covering over a ministry will make a huge difference.  Please join us in praying for these requests:

· Please pray for the Lance and the teams he is leading as well as the Anderson family as they prepare to travel to minister to the children.

· Please pray for people of Haiti as the tropical storm season continues.  Pray God’s hand of protection over them and His help in rebuilding after Hurricane Issac.

· Please pray for the needs of Haiti Care Mission.  Pray the abundance of God will overflow the resources of this ministry.


· Praise God all the hard working and helpful hands that provide items for this ministry.

· Praise Him for all the ways He leads the way for Haiti Care Mission.

 Thank you for all your prayers.

September Praises and updates

Our God Provides

    One of the most exciting and invigorating parts of our mission is watching how God provides for the needs of His children.  We are so blessed to sit in the front row and watch this happen time and time again.  Over the month of August, we got to see our God at work once again.

    You may remember that at the beginning of the summer we put out a request from a missionary for backpacks.  She has received items from Haiti Care Mission before and asked if we would present the idea to our sewing groups.  She needed 600 backpacks for the beginning of the new school year.  We really appreciate the boldness of this missionary to ask for what she needs.

    As the summer progressed, we had heard from several sewing groups that were interested in making backpacks but we had no actual commitments of the number of backpacks each group would make.  So, we waited and anticipated that God would provide….and He did!  This week, we packed up 600 backpacks to ship to Haiti.  Praise God!  He has provided for more than enough. 

     The handmade backpacks are amazing.  The ladies who made these backpacks poured love and prayers into these works of art.  Each bag is unique and each carries a special blessing to help these children remember that God loves them and they are special. 

     In addition to the homemade backpacks, we had one sewing group that had extra resources but were short on time, so they purchased backpacks for this project.  They had the front of the backpacks printed to say “Jezi renmen ou” so all who saw them would read “Jesus loves you.”  This group is very committed to helping us and we are grateful for their contribution. They made an investment of their resources and we know they will be blessed for their  gifts.

     Jehovah Jireh is the name of God found in Genesis 22:14 when God provided the ram for Abraham when he was preparing to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice.  We are not facing this same situation today but our God is the same, yesterday, today and forever.  We believe that our God is Jehovah Jireh and He is the provider of all of the needs of our family, this ministry and the children of Haiti.  We are blessed to be witnesses of His provision on a regular basis. It is our hope that others will see God as their provider.
And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah-jireh. As it is said to this day, In the mount of Jehovah it shall be provided.

Genesis 22:14 ASV


Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever.

Hebrews 13:8 NKJV

Praises and Prayer requests
Praise God for His provision of backpacks and helping hands to make them.

Praise the Lord for the missionaries that are working hard in Haiti to touch lives and bring hope.

Please pray for the people of Haiti.  As the tropical storm season is in full swing, we pray that God’s mighty hand will protect Haiti from future storms.  Also, pray for strength as they rebuild from the storm damage from Tropical storm Isaac.

Please join us in praying for Haiti Care Mission.  Pray for new partnerships and opportunities to share the love of Jesus.
We are grateful to have a powerful prayer team who prays over our family and this ministry.  Thank you for your prayers.
Hope was baptized this month.  We are so proud of her commitment to live for Christ.

August Updates and Prayer requests

      To say that we had a blessed trip to the Midwest is almost an understatement.  Our trip to the Midwest was really quite incredible.  We had plans to receive items for Haiti Care Mission.  We had plans to visit with churches and share our vision for Haiti Care Mission. We had plans to update our supporters and share our stories from Haiti, but we were not prepared to be blessed as much as we were.  Everywhere we went, we were showered with love, gifts and blessings. 

     We started the trip with a stop at Harvest International in Ocala, FL.  We have been partnering with Harvest for previous shipments and they were ready to receive more items to ship to Haiti for us.  This is a really great connection for us.  Harvest International has missionaries in Haiti and has been shipping to Haiti for 20 years.  They are a rich resource of information for us as we look at new ways to ship to Haiti for less cost.  We are very blessed through this partnership.

    Our next major stop was in Chicago, IL.  The Macedonia Tabernacle Baptist Church ladies have been sewing for Haiti for 2 years but did not know how they were going to get the items into Haiti.  Then one day, they found Haiti Care Mission on the internet and we became connected.  We were thrilled to be able to stop and meet many members of the church.  They treated us to a great lunch and time of fellowship.  They produced over 500 dresses and collected many other items which we will take to Haiti to distribute.

     We were very happy to spend several days in Wisconsin with family and friends before we moved on to Iowa to speak at several churches. We were eager to share how God is using Haiti Care and where He is taking this ministry.  Each church blessed us with new items for the children and we were very humbled by their gracious reception of us.  We made several new connections and even watched as God made connections within the churches through us. 

     Throughout the trip we had the privilege of seeing many friends, supporters,  and family members.  We were never short of people who treated us to a meal, took us on fun outings, or had a place for us to stay.  We were blessed that every need was met in abundance.  The girls were thrilled with the number of people who took time to talk to them about Haiti or spoil them with a little extra something.   We are grateful for all of those who came out to meet with us and encourage us.  We are honored to be in relationships with people and churches who see God’s vision for the nations and strive to be a part of it. 

     Overall, we traveled for 21 days, covered 4500 miles, spoke at 6 churches, and collected over 3000 new items for the children of Haiti.  That is what we call a BLESSED trip.

Praises and Prayer requests

Praise God for safe travels this last month.  We spent 21 days on the road and we felt His protecting hand.

Praise the Lord for a very successful trip for Haiti Care Mission.  The mission has 3000 more ways to bless the children due to all the hard work that was done for the children of Haiti.  We are grateful for all of these Kingdom workers.

Please pray for us as we press forward to serve the children of Haiti.

Please pray for the people of Haiti.

Please join us in praying for open doors for Haiti Care Mission.  We are always looking for new opportunities and new ways to serve .

Thank you for your faithful prayer support.  We appreciate each pray that is lifted up for us.

Please let us know how we can be praying for you.

July updates and Prayer requests

     It is hard to believe another month has passed by.  We have been very busy this month with many activities both as a family and in the ministry.

     We have spent a lot of time this month preparing for our trip to the Midwest.  We have several stops to make on the way so we are working to coordinate all of the details. We will start the trip by dropping off several hundred dresses with a ministry in northern FL that is filling a container for Haiti.  And on another part of the trip, we will be sending diapers to West Virginia to be loaded in a container for another ministry.  The best part of these partnerships is that they take the items and ship them for free for us.  These are amazing partnerships from God and we are blessed to be in a relationship with these organizations.

      We are very excited that we will be picking up close to 2000 items for the mission during the trip.  Sewing groups in Iowa and Illinois have been waiting for us to come and receive these items.  We are really looking forward to meeting these hard working groups and thanking them in person.

    We also look forward to meeting with our support team.  We have many pictures and stories from Haiti to share with all of you.  We hope you will make the effort to come see us in Iowa City for an open house or call us so we can get together in either Green Bay or Clear Lake.

     Between packing and planning, we have been busy preparing a dress sizing guide.  During our trip in April, we realized that we had a very inadequate method of sizing the dresses.  When we were in the field trying to distribute the dresses, it was hard to organize the dresses and distribute them efficiently, so we have developed a much simpler method of sizing.  We hope this will make the distribution easier for the missionaries and for ourselves when we are back in Haiti. 

     As a family, we have been busy as well.  We  all took part in Vacation Bible School at our church.  Grace and Hope did an amazing job as worship leaders.  They had a blast singing and dancing.  It is a joy to see them in their “zone” praising God.  Lance served as our “back up” man who was there to fill in the gaps.  I (Lynn) helped in the leadership of the week.  As a way to motivate the kids to learn their Bible verses, I allowed the kids who memorized all 5 verses to throw water balloons at me on the last day. They took it very seriously and I got soaked.  It was a very fun and eventful week. Praise God!  

     We have also been busy enjoying summer vacation from school.   It is quite an adjustment having the whole family here in our office/home.  We are very grateful that our girls understand the mission and embrace it.  We enjoy having them work by our sides.

Prayer request and Praises
Praise God for the response to the need for backpacks.  We have 2 groups already started on the project.

Praise the Lord for His provision. He is always providing for us. We are constantly amazed at His ways.

Please pray for us as we travel this month.  We will be working on raising funds and developing new sewing groups. Pray for open doors and hearts to respond to God’s call.

Please pray for our sewing groups. Join us as we pray for the blessings of the Lord to be poured out in their lives for all the work they do for the children.

We are grateful for all those who faithfully pray for our ministry.  We hope to many of you soon in the Midwest.  Thank you for partnering with us.

June updates

     This month we have been working hard to process all the new information we received during our trip to Haiti.  We learned so much and we are spending time finding the best way to meet some of the new needs that were shared with us.

     One of the new needs is that of shorts for boys.  While it was wonderful to give dresses to the little girls and share with them,  it was very hard to see the boys and not have much to give them.  We did share some candy and stuffed animals with them so no one went home empty handed but it was made evident to us that there are needs for boys shorts as well as dresses for the girls.

    We took down a few pairs of homemade shorts for the boys to check for proper sizes and styles.  In the future we want to be able to bring something significant for every child, so we are now starting to open up the sewing groups to start making boys shorts.  The boys shorts will mainly be for play since they wear pants to school and church, so the style needs to be relaxed and comfortable.  Anything that resembles a type of athletic short will work well.  If you are interested in making boys shorts let us know so we can have an idea of how many are being made.

     We also found that we have a need for dresses in larger sizes.  The pillowcase dresses are a good fit for most school children, but, in Haiti, some children start school later than 5 years old.  Therefore, when they reach 6th grade they can be as old as 15 years old.  We need dresses that will fit young women, not just the school girls.  The girls in the schools and churches we visited were very happy to receive the new dresses we had for them but some will be wearing them as long-style shirts instead of dresses.  They were happy to receive the items but next time we want to be able to give them something they will be able to feel comfortable wearing.

     The third need that was revealed to us was a need for drawstring backpacks.  With school starting in the fall, we received a request from one missionary for 600 backpacks.  We really hope we can find some sewing groups that would take on this project.  The children need something very simple to take their things back and forth to school.  They do not carry much to school but it would be great to share the love of Jesus with them in a very practical and tangible item.   If you would like to take on this project, please give us a call.  We would really love to see each child at this school receive a backpack to start their school year.

   With the growth of Haiti Care Mission, we expect to see changes in the needs on a regular basis.  It is our desire to meet the needs in whatever way we can.  If you are interested in helping make these new items, please give us a call so we can give you more specifics.

June Praise and Prayer request....
Praise God for His hand on this ministry.  He is leading the way for us to serve more children.
Praise the Lord for new sewing groups.  We added 3 more sewing groups to the ministry this month.
Please pray for us as we prepare to travel this summer to promote Haiti Care Mission and raise funds. Pray for doors to open and hearts to be willing to respond to the needs.
Please pray for the people of Haiti. Pray that they will hear and receive the message of Jesus.
Thank you for your faithful prayers. Please let us know how we can be praying for you.

Blessings and happy summer, Lynn for the Anderson Ministry team

Our Blessed and Productive Trip to Haiti--Thank you God!

   This month has been amazing for us.  We spent the first part of the month preparing our luggage, our itinerary and our hearts for our first family trip to Haiti.  We prayed, packed and planned.  Every moment of preparation paid off as we experienced a very blessed and productive trip.

    From the time we arrived in Port au Prince to the minute we left, we submitted ourselves to God’s plan.  Our main objective of the trip was to bring in Haiti Care Mission items and share the love of Jesus with the children of Haiti, but God had plans to bless us as much as we could  bless others. 

    Our hosts, Rev. Tom and Bev Brumbley and Pastor Lamartine and Patricia Liberus gave us several opportunities to do just what we planned to do. We traveled to 5 churches/schools in their ministries.  It was a huge blessing to distribute the items to the children and tell them that Jesus loves them.  They helped us learn a little Creole and translated for us so we could communicate with the children.  It was wonderful to see the joy on their faces when they received a dress, toy, pair of shorts or candy.  They were very grateful and we shared many smiles.

    During our trip we traveled extensively throughout Port au Prince and surrounding areas.  We went to Ti Goave, Meyer, Fort Parisen, Fort Dieu, Las Cahobas and Fort Jacques.  As we traveled, we saw the beautiful countryside, the in town traffic, the enormous amounts of people, and the devastating poverty.  We feel blessed to have had wonderful hosts who patiently answered all our questions and gave us feedback about our mission and how we can serve more effectively.

     In addition to focusing on Haiti Care distribution, we also were able to help with a few small projects.  We helped to deliver a generator to a brush arbor church.  This will be the first time the church and pastor’s house will have any source of power. Lance loved the opportunity to work with a “man toy”.  He also helped on Saturday to get the construction team started on pouring a floor of the new kitchen at the EWO headquarters school.  Since the earthquake, a small car-port has been the school kitchen and the children have been eating in the classrooms or play yard.

      On Sunday, we traveled to a church in the mountains where Lance had the privilege of sharing from God’s Word.  It was an honor to speak to the church. They are a very faithful group of believers and they have endured so much.  Our prayer is that they will continue to walk in faith and share their hope with others.

    We were very blessed to have our girls travel with us.  Grace and Hope really enjoyed the trip.  They commented quite a lot about how beautiful Haiti is.  They never complained about the living conditions of the people, they did not look down on them and they were never afraid.  They lovingly embraced the chances they had to interact and spend time with the Haitian people.  When we started our trip home, they both agreed that they would like to stay longer and return soon.

  We have much more to share but we will save that for when we are with you personally. 

This month's praises and prayer requests....
Praise God for His protection during our trip.  He watched over us and took very good care of us.
Praise the Lord for the missionaries we stayed with in Haiti.  They taught us so much.  God really blessed us with their friendship and partnership. Please pray for increase in their ministries.
Praise the Lord for clear vision.  He showed us many things while in Haiti that will help us improve Haiti Care Mission.
Please pray for us as we lead Haiti Care.  There is so much to be done.  Pray that we will stay focused on the important things.
Please pray for the people of Haiti.  They are very strong people but they live in extreme poverty. Most of the tents they are living in are worn out. Pray for protection during the rainy season.
Please pray for the missionaries we partner with.  They are serving in a difficult country.  Pray for strength and God’s favor in everything they do.
Thank you for your faithful prayers. Please let us know how we can be praying for you.

Thank you for partnering with us.  
Blessings, The Anderson Ministry team
