Pray for Mark Ostrander’s safety today as he travels deep into the mountains where there are no real roads. Mark, Philemon and some of our Haitian workers left at 5:00 AM to do some work on our new church and oversee the construction on our new school being built in Savaan Pit. He will also be checking on the foundation for our newest mountain church next to our new school in Greffin, Haiti. Thank you, David George and your friends for sponsoring the two new churches in Savaan Pit and Greffin!  Faith doesn’t know we don’t have the money to build our school in Savaan Pit! The school was severely damaged by the earthquake and then the hurricane. Love is something you do! Bobby

“For He shall give His Angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.” Psalm 91:11 – Living here in Haiti has brought us in closer contact with both the forces of evil and the forces of good… If you have never believed in Angels, God’s ministering spirits to His children, then you cannot believe in God. Several times here in Haiti in the mountains, our trucks “nearly went over the edge.” Once, I was driving myself with an interpreter up a mountain and my tires on our truck were bald. After crossing a river, I had to make a “straight up zigzag climb” to the top of the mountain on a muddy road. Needless to say, I didn’t make it. I began to slide back down to the edge of the cliff and I hung there with my fingers dug into the steering wheel, scared to death. All of a sudden, “five men” appeared out of nowhere, pushed my truck up onto the mountain and I went “flying” to the top! As I glanced in the mirror, they were nowhere to be seen. They saved my life! I believe in Angels!!! Have a great day and know that “God has His Angels” all around you today!!! Sherry

We just heard about this poor family a few days ago. Look at these precious children. They were so hungry; they were eating dirt and were nearly naked. They were dirty and so impoverished. But, with your help, we have sent them food and clothing, and look what “hope” does! They were so excited!! The Haitians say, “Hope makes us live.” This brings tears to my eyes. This is “what we do.” We are “Love A Child!” Sherry

Mark Ostrander in Haiti

We welcome Pastor Mark Ostrander! He has been here since Monday tearing down the old school in Miracle Village to start building the new one. He is also putting in more air-conditioning inside the Epi d’Or restaurant at the Grand Miracle Market (Gwo Maché Mirak). Mark is also overseeing the construction of our new orphan’s home for Madamn Adeline. Tomorrow, he will be up in Savaan Pit inspecting the construction of our new school there… plus more!! Pastor Mark has been here now more than 400 times! He is also on our Board of Directors. He is a real hero of the faith! We love and thank you, Mark. Love is something you do! Bobby

“Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8 – Is the Lord calling you today? Are you ready to deny yourself, sacrifice, take up His cross and follow Jesus all the way? Here am I Lord, send me. Bobby

Liquid soap for Haitians
06-20-2017 - 5:46 PM
Imagine living in a poor village in a mud hut with a dirt floor and no job. Most people here in Haiti make a living by finding some wood to sell or searching through a garbage dump…
Others have a little “something to sell,” but it is often not enough for food and certainly not enough to buy “liquid soap.” That is a luxury!! So, when we came into this village, again, the kids all wanted to “shampoo their heads” and the ladies needed something to wash with. We have brought boxes of liquid soap for bathing and doing laundry and it was “like Christmas in June!” Thank you, International Aid, for this wonderful gift!!! We still have lots to distribute! God bless your wonderful hearts! Bobby and Sherry Burnette
Native Sun Sports Hats
06-20-2017 - 12:00 PM

We visited another poor village this afternoon and what a big surprise these Native Sun sports hats were!!! These people live in the heat of the sun with very little shade!!! As we pulled up in our truck, some men were “making a fishing net” by hand. When they saw the hats coming, the whole village gathered around!! It was impossible to get all the pictures! We will put these wonderful Native Sun sports hats in all our “sacks of food,” going out all over Haiti!!! Thank you, Native Sun Sports, for this priceless donation given through World Vision. Bobby and Sherry Burnette

Lining Up at the Jesus Healing Center

“Busting at the Seams!!!” Look at the long lines outside the gate of the Jesus Healing Center! You can see what the Security Guards have to do each morning when they open the gate!!! The second photo is part of the line. This is a long line of “pregnant mothers.”  There is another long line of “aged patients.” And, we have two other lines, which include new patients and returning patients. We wish to thank Joyce Meyer Ministries—Hand of Hope for sponsoring our Jesus Healing Center each month!! Blessings, Bobby and Sherry

I love the Haitian Proverbs… They come from the “old timers” who had a lot of wisdom. One Proverb says, “Dirty clothes are washed in the family…” That means, you don’t need to tell everyone “everything.” Don’t spread the dirt around. The Bible says, “A talebearer revealeth secrets; but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.” Proverbs 11:13 There’s nothing worse than “gossiping Christians” who can’t keep their mouths shut and they go around spreading discord. I know some have been hurt by that. Let’s be like the “faithful spirit,” and keep it between us and the Lord. Let’s wash the dirty laundry “inside” the family and take it to the Lord in prayer. Have a great day!! Sherry

Clothing for the Poor Children
06-19-2017 - 4:40 PM

“Clothing for the Poor Children…” I just love the scripture that says, “I was naked and ye clothed me…” When we do this unto the least of the little ones, we are really doing it unto Jesus. Thank you, Sharan Oehlman, for the precious clothing you sent to us for the children! We know it took lots of “long hours” to make them! God bless you, and thank you again from the children of Haiti.
