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.

Building Relationships

We just returned on Friday from another successful trip to Haiti.  This trip had a very different agenda than most trips but it was very productive in many ways.

    The main purpose of this trip was not to do ministry work with the children.  This trip was about building relationships.  We had a very unique offer to travel to Haiti to meet new missionaries and meet with church leadership.  We are very grateful for this offer and it turned out very well.

     During the trip we met with several long standing ministries in Haiti.  We were able to share our hearts for the country and hear about how we can come alongside them to better serve the people of Haiti.  We also had some very significant meetings with church leaders and we are looking forward to seeing how these new open doors will develop into future ministry and trips.

     Additionally, during the trip we met with a longstanding partner who was able to meet with us at the airport and pick up several packages.  Through this delivery, we were able to bless the children of his churches with over 375 items of love.  On Monday, I received this thank you note from them, which expresses that by Sunday, all of the items were already in the hands of the children.
Dear Lynn and Lance,
Thank you very much for the gifts for the churches. Yesterday I went to Fonds-Parisien and Fonds Dieu to give the clothes and you know they were very excited.  Saturday, I took clothes to Athis and they were very happy also.

Again, thank you.  It was a blessing for the children.
Pastor L.
We were very happy to know that within 5 days these gifts were already in the children’s hands.  Praise God for this connection!

     During one of the visits with a pastor from Haiti, we became aware of the dire conditions in one area of the country.  The pastors from that area gave us a report that there are no crops growing any longer in that area. Therefore, there is no food or income for the people.  It is a very serious condition and many are being affected.  They will need approximately $5000 to get this area through this crisis.  With the proper funds, they could feed the people there and help them make it through until the drought is over or they can find a way to bring in irrigation for the future crops.  If you would like to make a donation towards the relief efforts to help this area of the country, please contact us and we will give you more information.

     Overall, the trip was a huge success in many ways but most importantly, the trip was a success based on the relationships that were built.  We believe that the work of ministry has always been and always will be about relationships.  Relationships were important to Christ and they should be important to us.  We value each of you for your relationship with us.  Whether through donations of goods, financial support, or prayer, we are grateful for your relationship with Haiti Care Mission.  You are a huge part of every life that is touched through this ministry.  And, we thank God for you
Praises and Prayer requests
· Praise the Lord for new relationships and opportunities.  We were blessed to meet many new missionaries and visit new ministries where we will soon be connected.
· Please pray for Haiti.  There are areas of severe drought in Haiti, where the local pastors are crying out for help for their families and their children.  No crops means no income and no source of food.   If you are interested in helping with this specific need, please contact us.  They need approximately $5000 to help feed the people of this area and bring irrigation to the crops.
We found some friends in Zorange.
