A Difference is spelled….YOU

Seventeen years ago, I headed to Haiti for the first time. Our MOL compound was nothing but an empty piece of property and a vision. In the small community of Jolivert, the men had no jobs, the children were hungry, typhoid and malaria were common. Since that time, that empty property has been transformed, jobs have been created, children are being fed and typhoid and malaria are almost non-existent in our community.   An entire community has been blessed.

Thousands of lives have been transformed not only physically but spiritually as well. Our medical clinic is thriving and is 100% Haitian run in country. All these years later, the clinic finally brings in enough income to pay for medicine and staff at the clinic. Our goal has always been to help the Haitian people help themselves.

IMG006In the meantime, we have programs that have not, and never will reach this goal – to be self-sufficient; we strive to reach the poorest and those most in need. We pay for teachers because families can’t. We pay for roofs because without them widows and their families would be living in mud.

Our general fund pays for these and many other expenses; Haitian taxes, vehicle expenses, generators, solar equipment, and maintaining structures at the compound. These are all necessary for ALL of our programs to remain operational.

 

We are seeking 100 ministry partners to sign up to support MOL for one year with a $25 monthly pledge. This breaks down to only 82 cents a day!

What would your $25 a month do?

  • Pay a teacher’s salary for an entire MONTH
  • Buy a 50 pound bag of Haitian Rice to feed the hungry
  • Buy 5 sheets of tin for a roof
  • Keep MOL operational so that we can continue to reach those in need

We also have 2 medical professional students that we are training who will come work at Clinique Jolivert when they are finished with school.

Wilgunes is in medical school. His tuition is $2600 a year. He has several years left.

Saltane is in nursing school. Her tuition is $1,200 a year. This is her last year.

Missions of Love excels at showing God’s love to the Haitian community, but the reality is that we’ve never been great at fundraising. Please pray and consider supporting MOL.

You can mail a check, pay thru PayPal or our Secretary Pat Duarte can set up monthly draft withdrawals. You can be a monthly Ministry Partner or make a one time contribution. The key is YOU! You can make a difference!

In Christ’s Love,

Amy Wolf

Evangelism Update

Evangelism  – Pastor Julien Loute has been associated with Missions of Love for over 20 years. He had been doing evangelism in the homes of the people surrounding Jolivert. During these years he has taken missionaries under his wing, taking them to remote places in Haiti to spread the Gospel of Christ. Over this 20 year period, Apostle Julien has planted 20 churches, some of which he has taught young men how to build churches, installing pastors and teachers in place. Many time American Missionaries has taken of up the mountain in the Army Truck with Apostle Julien to see what is needed for different churches. Most of the time Pastor Julien has walked to many of these places, which some are many days walk.

Two years ago, one mission group decided to present the Apostle with a motor bike. Missions of Love helps our pastors with conferences and revivals. This money comes out of our General Fund. If you would like to help with the Evangelism program, any amount would be greatly appreciated. It takes about $2400 to set up a church, with walls and roof and wooden benches. There is no padded seats.

This was the first site of a church Apostle Julien planted in the mountains of Haiti, there now stands a large block church with many members. This was mostly Voodoo country and now because of the work of people like our missionaries and pastors like Apostle Julien, Christianity is on growing rapidly.

Dental Clinic Update

From Barbie Porter –  I have a special prayer request I’d like to ask you to take upon your heart in agreement prayer with me. As most of you know, The Lord allowed Ralph and I the honor of seeing a new dental clinic built in the sands of Missions Of Love in Jolivert, Haiti, a mission we dearly love and believe The Lord has sent us to. From the time of the first round of dental donations, April 28, 2012, till the start of the new building in Haiti, January 10, 2014, till the last coat of crippie (stucco-type finish) was on December 19, 2014, it seems God has commissioned this project by providing countless provisions, timely shipments, a quick build and a beautiful building.

However, it breaks our hearts to see this new dental clinic sitting idle. Will you please help us pray that The Lord will send godly, caring, mission-minded dentists, hygienists, and dental assistants to comprise dental teams for Missions Of Love dental clinics in Jolivert, Haiti for this year? And, likewise, that God will provide a godly Haitian, Cuban or other, dentist, hygienists and assistant, as local staff for ongoing, dental care?

The residents of Jolivert area truly need dental care and have suffered long without it. Thank you so much for your prayer support. God Bless You!

Tonya’s New House

Thank you to Nancy Bukovnik and her group of friends from Ohio!!  Tonya and her family have a house to call their own.  Tonya has been blind for many years and it’s difficult for her to find work.  Her husband Neville does yard work for the mission.

Her original house leaked and was starting to fall over.  Tonya was frequently sick and it was believed that was in part due to the mold and mildew from the leaking roof.

The family did not have adequate shelter until Nancy and her group of friends stepped forward and help sponsor this new home.  What a blessing for this family!!

Adult Literacy Program Update Dec. 2014

MOL’s Adult Literacy Program is headed up by our dear Ms Nancy Bukovnik, who is a retired nurse . God has given her a deep love for the Haitian people, and in return they love her also.  God has used Nancy to do a mighty work in Jolivert and surrounding mountain areas.

Nancy Bukovnik Literacy Class Report

Jackson and Blaud have reported that 12 adult literacy classes began in September.  These classes are scattered throughout the northwest of Haiti, using teachers who live in the villages.  As people learn to read and write in Haitian Kreyol, they are also taught about the Lord Jesus.  At the end of the year of study, each student will receive a Kreyol Bible. 2014 marks the 8th year of this outreach.

Five additional literacy classes have recently begun in Gonaives under the supervision of Pr. Juanito Genada.

It is a privilege to be involved with Sharing the Gospel in Haiti.

Nancy B.,   MOL director

literacy

This is one of the literacy classes. Some of the lady’s here were fitted with glasses from Dr. Asa’s Eye Clinic free of charge, so they would be able to see to read.

Being able to read and write is a great blessing to those who were never given the opportunity of education. Many wanted to take the class so they could read their Bible. If you would like to donate Bibles for the literacy classes, they are $8.00 each. We will also inscribe a message to the graduate if you like.

Dr. Bob’s Fall Report

Fall Clinic Report
Gentlefolk:
If you are one of our ministry partners, prayer partners or have gifted MOL in one way or another over the years, you deserve to know how certain prayerful goals of our mission have come to fruition over the years, thanks to you and to the Grace of God. In this issue, I’m happy to report on one of our most sought-after of these goals: the education and job-opportunities afforded many of our neighbors in and around Jolivert. One of the earliest obstacles we encountered in developing our hugely successful clinic at Jolivert was the local citizen’s complaints that we were not hiring locals, but were bringing in Haitian professionals from other areas. The problem, of course, was that there simply were no trained medical professionals in the area at that time. We immediately saw the need to make the education and medical training needed to operate such a clinic available to as many of our neighbors as possible, so this became a priority long-range goal for our directors.

I’m most pleased to report that we’ve now put two young men through medical school and several men and women through nursing training. Our first graduate to get his medical degree was Dr. Louissaint Louis-Sez, who has now worked at Jolivert and has himself become one of our directors. He is temporarily in the States working on his licensing and credentialing needs and has devoted himself to being a major player in the operation of our clinic and leadership with MOL for years to come.

Our second graduate is Dr. Daniel Loute, a son of our good friend, Pastor Julian Loute. One of his daughters, Julie has also received her RN degree. Both of these fine young Christian professionals are currently employed at the clinic.

Another neighbor next door to our clinic, Jelines Lazard, is an especially bright young man who has received his RN degree and is now the nurse in charge of our medical outreach in the surrounding mountain communities where MOL serves hundreds who due to age or disability cannot come down to the clinic. He and others from our clinic make regular visits to these remote areas. We have great expectations of Jelines due to his exceptional leadership potential.

Another outstanding “local product” is Guerby Odin,a trained and certified lab technologist who also operates our Eye clinic under Dr Asa Talbot’s supervision. He treats hundreds of eye problems each month. All of these young folks will be contributing to the health and welfare of their people for many years to come.

Our latest project is helping Wilguens Belizaire through med school in Port-au-Prince. I should note here that a medical degree can be obtained in Haiti for a tiny fraction of what similar training would cost in the U.S..

His annual tuition, for example, amounts to only about $1500 in U.S. dollars.. Still, this is $1500 we don’t have in our General Fund, and Wilguen’s future in Medicine depends entirely on help from folks like you. If we had a few more partners willing to donate $25 to $50 per month toward that goal, we could draw a huge sigh of relief. But of course, any gift no matter how small, is always hugely appreciated. Thanks, God bless all and have a wonderful coming holiday season!

Triplets are 13 months old!

One of the first things that I, with Christophe, Dr. Louissaint and Dr. Joe did on our recent trip to Haiti was to visit this family that MOL has been supporting. This family was brought to our attention by our Outreach Clinic workers.

10609415_10153113901303858_2219640063927499489_n

 Living in a very poor, rural area of Beard, this family had 10 children and then the mother gave birth to triplets! The father was injured and could not work and could not feed his family. The children were not in good health. Medical treatment was immediately given and is ongoing.

10625146_10153114102668858_922650599941625126_n

Thanks to Reflection of Christ (ROC) life group, we have been able to commit to 2 years of support for the triplets. In these pictures the triplets are 13 months old. We have fed them, gave medical care and now on this day we were able to introduce them to a Living God, the one who made it possible for their children to have food.

The father told us of the god he served and all the sacrifices (food, chickens, goats or anything that will bring in money) that he had to give that god. In return this god might give him a number to play the lottery. The four of us began to witness to him and his family about Jesus Christ and how he was the sacrifice for all man kind.

10629853_10153114104448858_1810786685026200808_n

We prayed with all the family including the grandparents and uncles. Around 20 people live in 2 small mud huts. The babies are covered in mud and the other children do not have clothes. As we were leaving the man said to us that he wanted to learn more about our God, and would like to go to church on Sunday. Christophe contacted a pastor in the area and I talked to Soldat (Disciples of Christ) who will visit them and find some clothes and shoes for them.

family

Much is still needed for this family. MOL can help by sending Haitian workers, but without the help of our supporters we cannot. Donations are needed for Evangelism. We have Haitian teams that are able to get into the mountains in places where Americans cannot go. They will spread the gospel, give Bibles, health care, clothing, and build churches. All this takes money to send these evangelist and pastors out to tell the good news. If you would like to help with our Evangelism Program, please contact me or send a donation to:
