Dear Friends, 

It is so good to watch God at work in Haiti!  We have seen Him raise up a team of dedicated Haitian servants to accomplish His purposes.  We have the privilege of partnering with them.  And we are so THANKFUL for you also, who partner with us through your prayers and financial support.

Norius Petit-Frere is the director of our school ministry in Haiti.  He and his wife Linda have four sons, ages one, three, five & seven.  Norius has a sensitive heart for his people who are constantly going through trying circumstances.  He travels to each of our 31 schools every week and does a great job of overseeing the administration of those schools.  He also keeps his eyes and ears open for areas where God is at work and where another school is needed.  Continue Reading →

Dear Friends,

On our last day in Haiti, before leaving for home this past September, Glenn, Philip & I had several things to do in Port-au-Prince.  Because we didn’t know our way around this city of over two million people and Pastor Diogene was busy with other responsibilities, we needed someone to guide us. So Pastor Diogene enlisted Garry Charles for this job.  Garry’s English is very good so he also did the interpreting for us for some business transactions.   He knew the city and took us exactly where we wanted to go.

Garry is a young man of about 25 years old.  He comes from the Tricotte area but has been in Port-au-Prince for several years while he completed his high school education.  He is now attending a mechanic trade school specializing in auto electronics.  He will complete this training in about six months and then plans to start his own small business.
