Hi friends and family,
We had a great weekend with Jonathan Hall,from Foursquare Missions. As always, he encouraged us all with his energetic enthusiasm. He flew into Haiti just for a quick overnighter on his way to a convention in Brazil. Thank you Jonathan. That meant so much.
Pastors Steve and Kim Cecil invited us to go with them, because their church, Journey Foursquare of Madison, Wisconsin, along with several other Foursquare churches, support this orphanage. The people of these churches have given sacrificially over the past 2 years to feed and clothe these children, visit them and build structures to house them. I never cease to be amazed at the dire poverty we see the Haitians experience. Although, the Cecils and their partners have spent around $30,000 in the past 2 years to improve the conditions at Faith Orphanage in Jacmel, there is still so much to do. They were out of rice on Tuesday, and that means that basically, they will be out of rice until someone buys it for them. Pastor Emelie , his wife and family take care of these orphans with very little means of feeding them and taking care of their basic needs. It was such an honor to visit with Pastors Steve and Kim and encourage them in the good work they are leading and giving vision to, We were able to assess the urgent need, and the best part is, we had the funds available through the Foursquare Haiti Relief & Compassion to buy 4 big bags of rice, oil and some other supplies. We committed, on behalf of Foursquare Haiti Relief, ongoing aid to Faith Orphanage, as we receive containers of food and supplies. Thank you so much for your prayers and generosity.
John & Debbie
