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.
In 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,
