Welcome Mark Ostrander
09-19-2017 - 5:02 PM

We welcome Mark Ostrander to Haiti today. He has come to Love A Child more than 400 trips now to work so hard! Here he is today standing by John Eddy, the head of our great Haitian construction workers. They are standing in front of one of the new school buildings in Miracle Village, which Mark designed and built! Pray for Mark’s son Jared who was put in the hospital today. Mark will be flying back home early in the morning to be with his son, and with his wife, Evie. Please pray for Jared. We will give you an update tomorrow. God honors prayer! Bobby

baby Joshua
09-19-2017 - 8:00 AM

The baby who was abandoned at our front gate, (we are calling him “Joshua,” for right now…) is doing a little better. But he will be transferred to another hospital either today or tomorrow. That hospital is L’hopital de Nos Petits Freres et Soeurs, which is the best hospital in Haiti for babies and children. They were full the other day, but they should have an opening today or tomorrow. “Joshua” has no more diarrhea, but continues to vomit any milk or baby food products. He is still on IVs. There will be a wonderful pediatrician at the hospital where he is being transferred. We should know more in a couple of days. Sherry

“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?” Jeremiah 32:27 — When I was two weeks old, my mother went insane, and they took her away for 21 years to an insane asylum. On the 21st year, there she was watching Oral Roberts on TV one morning and the Lord instantly healed her while she was praying! I believe in the God of miracles. Look for your miracle today! There is nothing too hard for God. Bobby

Tomorrow morning early, Sherry and I will leave Haiti en route to the Joyce Meyer Ministries Women’s Conference in Saint Louis, MO. We can’t wait! We will be returning right back to Haiti. Wonderful news: Last Friday, we unloaded our shipping container that we had just cleared from Customs. We were thrilled to see our Ultrasound Machine with a printer! Thank you, Joyce Meyer Ministries Hand of Hope! Tomorrow, they will be installing it in our Jesus Healing Center. All the staff, doctors and nurses are so thrilled! Thank you again Joyce Meyer Ministries — Hand of Hope for this wonderful donation!! Bobby

“I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them…” This is what David, the shepherd boy said to King Saul. David, a young man, probably about 17, was about to go out to fight the “nine foot tall” giant, Goliath. Saul had given David his own armor to put on to fight Goliath, but David said, “I cannot go with these; for I have not proved them.” 1 Samuel 17:39
This armor was heavy and David had never worn “someone else’s armor,” but he had used a sling and a stone. He knew they worked, because he had killed a lion and a bear with them (and probably a lot of things). What works for someone else, may not work for you. God has already given you the things you need for the work He has called you to do. You don’t need to use “someone else’s armor!” You have been through trials and “you know what works!” You have used “what God has given you!” If God has given you a “good sling and a stone” that works, that’s all you need!! Have a great day, and “use what God has given you!” Sherry

Update - Madamn Adeline's Orphanage
09-17-2017 - 7:23 PM

Today, we visited Madamn Adeline’s Orphanage! It is even more beautiful than the pictures! She was having Church, outside, on the porch. The children are not moving in until we can get their furniture (bunk-beds, tables, chairs, curtains, and more), and we hold the Dedication! Bobby and I had tears in our eyes. What a “miracle” in the middle of “nowhere!” All because a praying woman “went up on the mountain to pray” every Monday, that God would give them a home! Thank you, Lord! Bobby and Sherry

This morning, Bobby and I and Philemon, one of our Haitian workers, are leaving for Fond Michelle, to visit the new orphanage, which we built for Madamn Adeline and her children. Special thanks to Dr. Pat, Debbie Click, and their friends, for funding this beautiful orphanage “in the middle of nowhere,” and special thanks to Pastor Mark, his son Jesse, Jean Eddie, and the Haitian crew, who worked endless hours… And, thanks to Elizie, and the Haitian team, who made many trips, and worked overtime, painting it! What a huge job this was!!!! Now, we only lack the bunk beds, and tables, and chairs to furnish the new orphanage. Be looking for pictures this afternoon! God bless you, Bobby and Sherry

Double portion!! “Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.” 2 Kings 2:9 — We need a double portion of God’s spirit in our lives today! Oh Lord let it be! Bobby

 

 

Workers still painting
09-16-2017 - 7:39 PM

At 6:00 PM everyone is still painting!! One little girl said, “My school will be ready,” she was so happy! The Haitian crew and our boys are all hard workers! The school will hold 600 children. Thank you again Joyce Meyer MinistriesHand of Hope for giving the money to build the entire school. Love is something you do! Bobby
