Wow!!!!! God sure does love a cheerful "giver" Over the last few months I have witnessed what its like to be blessed when you give with purpose and without haste. We always talk about Traveling with House of Hope and "share your gifts and talents" This is one way I continually get to witness our friends, "travelers" express pure joy after sharing their gift with the children and the community we serve. When you have a gift weather it's being a great teacher, mother, pastor, nurse....whatever. When you enjoy what you do, and you get to teach, mentor, or coach another person it brings joy to your heart. It happens to me almost daily! The really cool part is I get to share the experience with so many folks!!! The work we do and life we live as a community in Haiti, has transformed many lives. Both in the US and in Haiti. Sometimes folks can not travel with us, but want to be a part. Here are just a few ways we offer for you to get involved. The opportunity to Sponsor one of the children in our Orphan Care is ideal. This is a unique relationship between you and your Sponsored child. Offering love, support and guidance. In hope of meeting one day and the guarantee of a life long friend. We currently have children who would LOVE for you to Sponsor them today. The children understand the program and are grateful for the help and the opportunity to have a relationship with you. We hope you consider this Holiday Season Sponsoring one of the beautiful children in our Orphan Care, and become part of our family. Another way to get involved with PHoH if you can not travel with us is helping out or hosting a fundraiser. We are always in need of funds to help with feeding and caring for the basic needs of the children at House of Hope and Hope 12:21. Please contact us and we can give you a host of ideas, or we welcome any suggestions you may have in helping to raise funds and awareness of our Core Programs.
Our community we serve in Haiti Montrouis and Lanzac area, was spared any major damage and loss of life due to Hurricane Matthew. The southern part of the Island was devastated... Please continue to pray for and support the efforts in helping those affected by Matthew. The power of prayer is enormous! Thank you to everyone who kept our community and all of Haiti in their constant prayers. Thank you, also to the many of you who took the time to call me personally and ask about our children, their caregivers, our Partners and their families in Haiti. The outpouring of support financially was a true blessing because of folks like you who believed in the cause and gave generously. I am grateful to have been able to be a part of the combined effort to assist those who suffered in the Hurricane.
I wanted to take a few minutes this morning and share a few things with you today about "Cheerful Giving" it really does the body good.... and heart..... Not to mention God loves a cheerful giver! Thanks again to each and everyone of you for your love and support! Have a blessed and beautiful Sunday and a great week!
For the love of Haiti.... AF
