Our Goal

The goal of Haiti Care Mission is to share the love of Jesus with the children of Haiti through handmade items. Each hand sown item is made to help every child know that they are precious in His sight. Pinless cloth diapers, pillowcase dresses, and sleeping mats are used as a means of sharing the Gospel of Jesus with the children and families of Haiti.

October Updates

     Welcome to the Fall season….which for us is time to start preparing for our upcoming trips to Haiti.  We currently have two trips planned for this fall.  One in October and one in November.

     As a normal part of our planning for big trips, Lance always makes a trip to Haiti alone one month prior.  He usually travels alone and makes the final preparations for our upcoming trip. This helps us in two ways.  First, he gets all the details arranged for when the girls and I arrive, and secondly, he brings several extra pieces of luggage into the country to help us be able to bless more children on the following trip.

     This October will be making one of these types of trips but with an extra element. When we started to plan this trip, we were given an opportunity for Lance and our pastor, Pastor Randy Burt, to lead a pastor’s conference for 3 days in Anoux, Haiti. There will be approximately thirty pastors attending the conference and we are praying that it will be a wonderful time of refreshing.   Pastors in Haiti rarely get a chance to receive additional training or times of encouragement.  These men are doing an incredibly challenging job and they have very few opportunities to step away from their churches for a few days to be refilled themselves.  Please pray with us that this conference will be a great time of encouragement, anointing and equipping.  We pray that they will leave with new tools and fire to do the Kingdom work in a very difficult nation.

    Along with the work at the conference, Lance will arrange all of the details for our trip in November and deliver many of our items to Haiti for us to distribute. 

     Please join us in praying for many aspects of this trip.  Pray for God’s protection as they travel.  Pray for God’s favor from the time they leave Venice to the time they return. Please pray for wisdom to preach/teach the words that these pastors need to hear.  Finally, pray for great weather during their trip.  

    Thank you for your faithful support of Haiti Care Mission.  We are grateful for every prayer spoken, every kind word of encouragement we receive, every financial gift given and every  hand made item for the children.  Together, we are making a difference in people’s lives in Haiti.  
Prayer requests and Praises
  Praise the Lord for God’s provision for this ministry and our family. 
  Praise God for items that arrive just in time for packing for the next trip.  God’s timing is perfect.
Prayer requests
   Please pray for the fall trip to Haiti.  Pray that each pastor who attends the conference to be full of expectation.  Also, please pray for the safety and protection of all who are traveling to the conference. And finally, pray for God’s words to be spoken through the speakers to refresh and renew these pastors.
Thank you for praying for us and this ministry.  We appreciate your prayers.

Summer Projects

  This summer seems to have just rushed by us.  We were very blessed to have lots of family time this summer.  We enjoyed weekly trips to the water park as well as a short trip to Arkansas for a niece’s wedding. We feel very blessed that we can work together and set our schedule to spend lots of time with our children.

     This summer at Haiti Care we spent a great deal of time doing inventory and organizing the items we have on hand.  We are very pleased to see the balance of items we have for upcoming trips, but are ready for more items to come in.  We are always amazed at how God refills our shelves after each trip.  It is a wonderful thing that we can never out give God.  He is constantly replenishing the inventory through new sewing groups and more deliveries. 

     Another summer project for us was to recreate a set of teaching manuals for a chapel/Bible program in Haiti.  Our friend, Bev Brumbley, who created the Bible program asked us to “fix” these manuals during our last trip, but they were quite worn out and they need more than just a “fix up”.  They needed a facelift.  (It is important to note that the original manuals were printed in 1982 and have been all over the countryside of Haiti in the backpacks of the traveling teachers.) 

    With the help of the computer and a friend who did all the translation work, it was a creative journey to recreate these manuals.  As a teacher, who lives in a country of abundant resources, it was important to me that these Bible teachers have what they need to spread the Gospel to their students.   The project is not quite complete but we are in the final editing stages.  When the editing is complete, we will create the final copies with the gift of resources from New Life Church.  We look forward to delivering the books to Haiti during our November trip.  

    Our final work of the summer is the planning of our trips for the fall season.  Lance will be traveling to Haiti in October and we will be making a week-long trip in November.  If you have items you would like us to bring to Haiti, please plan to have them shipped to us by the end of September to allow time for packing.  Thank you for your faithful support of Haiti Care Mission. 

 Prayer Requests and Praises

· Praise the Lord for the connections and relationships God provides for Haiti Care. 

· Praise God for new sewing partners.  We are also excited to see how God brings new workers into the field.

Prayer requests

· Please pray for us as we start planning for our fall trips.  Pray for wisdom and God’s timing for each trip.

· Please pray for all of our sewing partners.  Pray for God’s blessing on them as they use their gifts to serve His children. 

· Please continue to pray for God’s favor and wisdom in all we do as we serve Him.

Thank you for praying for us and this ministry.  We appreciate your prayers.
