So many things planned for this upcoming trip in June. All of which I pray will spread the gospel news, while helping our dear friends in Haiti become more self sufficient. My biggest fear is that of the American economy collapsing, and us not able to support our brothers and sisters in Haiti. Our mission is to help stabilize this with the Good News, and also the education of supporting themselves. In Haiti, this means being able to feed yourself and your family, send your children to school, and some how have a safe roof over your head.
This trip we have things planned to disciple to the teens of the village of La Digue. We are hopeful we will be able to provide a Haitian Creole bible for each teen girl we will be studying with. (25-30 is our goal) We are hoping to put together something fun and something practical for the girls too. Nail polish, hair accessories, feminine hygiene pads, soaps……
We will also be visiting with the widows at the compound when they come for their weekly meeting. This is such an inspiring time for me, and these women helped to change my heart over 2 years ago. We have in the past been able to gift them the gospel of John, soaps for their bodies, handmade washcloths, soaps for clothes and dishes…. We will put together a bag for them again this trip too…. soaps and washcloths again for sure..
We will also take a day trip to Real Hope For Haiti, and while there we will deliver supplies, medicine, and birthing kits. The team we are joining from KY is bringing a doctor along on this trip, and he may have the opportunity to help out in the clinic that day.
Sherry (my mother in law) and I have one major goal that we hope to accomplish this trip, and that is to build some key hole gardens.

We would love to start with the first garden at the home of our employee Talloway (from the family in the woods) We would put this garden together at his home, with his help, learning how to build it and maintain it. We hope to put a second garden at the home of another family in need, with Talloway present again so that he will have all the skills he needs to build these gardens. This way when we leave, he can help other families to build their own key hole gardens. The materials are easy to find and save until you have enough to build a garden, with the only expense being in the plants. Our prayer is that these families will then help their neighbor to build one and so on…….. Eventually having plants to share with the family that you are helping to build their own key hole garden.
7:10 will need to purchase the materials to put these first gardens together. We have estimated the cost to be about $52.00 per garden. This would buy manure, black dirt, cinder blocks, and chicken wire. Would you be willing to sponsor a garden, or part of a garden?
