A Very Eventful Month

   It has been another very eventful month for us at Haiti Care Mission and we are ready for more. Interestingly, the month started with a trip to Haiti and is ending with the packing for a trip to Haiti.  We are so grateful for these opportunities and, although it can be very chaotic and crazy, we would not change it one bit of this mission-filled life.

     The first event of the month was a short work trip.  Lance and Lemuel, a fine young man from our church, traveled to Haiti during the first week of the month on a trip with a two prong purpose.  The first purpose was to update and rewire a school/church compound in Arnoux.  The second purpose was to transport items into Haiti for our March trip.  It is very helpful for us to have an extra opportunity to get more items into the country in order to increase the number of “tools” that we can use during our trip. 

     With all of that said, I am happy to report that their trip was successful on both fronts.  They were able to complete all of the electrical work, which included moving wires from a tree, which was the current electrical pole, to the building/generator shack.  They also ran wire to the new team building on the compound.   In addition, they transported over 400 items into the country.  We thank God for the protection over them while they worked and for guiding them to complete all of the tasks before them. 

     The next major event of this month was the opening of a new shipping avenue for HCM.  Through a partnership with a Haitian pastor, we were able ship over 600 items and a much needed portable generator into Haiti in sea container.  This new partnership will provide us with another great way to serve the children of Haiti.  We are confident that God will take these items much farther than we could possibly do on our own.  We are so grateful for this new opportunities.  We have been praying for ways to serve more children and to reach further corners of Haiti so this is the answer to this prayer.

    The final event we have been working on this month  is the preparations for our trip in March.  We will be leaving this week for our annual spring trip.  We are looking forward to visiting  five new locations. It is always fun for us to see more of Haiti as well as meet more of the precious Haitian people.  We will traveling for three days to remote locations in the south.  In addition to the days of traveling, we will be spending several days working in Port au Prince.  Please pray for us next week as we strive to take full advantage of every opportunity God places in our path.

     We are humbled to see how God is enabling Haiti Care Mission to grow.  Thank you to all of the hard working volunteers who are creating the items of love.  We can only do the work of sharing the love of Jesus with the children of Haiti with your help.  We are also indebted to all of our faithful financial supporters.  You are the backbone of this mission and you are giving us the ability to serve God’s precious children.  Everyday, we thank God for each of you.  Your sacrificial giving of time and resources is a blessing to many.

Praises and Prayer requests

    · Praise the Lord for a successful trip for Lance and Lemuel.  They were able to accomplish all of the electrical work.

· Praise God for our newest sewing groups and for donated materials to keep the projects rolling.  We are always amazed at how God provides the right people, the right materials, and the perfect timing.

· Praise the Father for His ministry of Haiti Care Mission.  He is leading and directing this ministry.  Pray that we heed to His voice and follow Him alone.

· Please pray for our March trip. Pray for safety, protection, health and favor every step of the way.

· Pray for the new churches and schools that we will be visiting.  Pray that the Lord prepares hearts to receive His love through us.

Thank you for faithfully covering HCM in prayer.  We appreciate all of our prayer warriors.

We were blessed to bring Uncle Paul with us on the trip.  Thanks for your hard work, Paul.
