Blankets for the poor
05-17-2017 - 10:42 AM

It is so wonderful that our Love a Child Partners go to all the trouble to send handmade blankets, layettes and more for the children here in Haiti. We were recently in a very poor village, and look what joy these gifts brought! Thank you Lutheran Missions Attic Workshop! They loved the blankets and the layettes! God bless you wonderful people!! You are “angels” to the children of Haiti! Sherry

“The Race is On…” Have you ever watched the Olympics on television, or a high school match of athletic runners? They are all “in the race to win,” and everyone is watching them. These people are athletes and they would never “run” with anything that would slow them down. They also know that “everyone is watching them.” “Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which does so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.” Hebrews 12:1 – Remember, we are in a “race” until death, or until Jesus comes…and “all eyes of the world are on us.” Let’s not carry any “weights” in this race. Have a great day! Sherry

Our recent visiting organization, the New York Dream Center Team, helped us distribute food and Bibles to a Voodoo village where we have been working for several years called Despeezo. The elderly woman in the picture is the mother of the big “houngan” (witch doctor) in this village. The people really loved the Bibles, which were donated by Pastor Dickow, of Life Changers International Church! The people of Despeezo said, “We’re thankful for the food, but we really needed the Bibles!” Thank you for helping us feed the people, both physically and spiritually!

“And the young man went away sorrowful…” (Matthew 19:21-22)
Jesus told this story in chapter 19 in the book of Matthew. He was talking about “riches possess you,” rather than possessing riches. Jesus told the young man, “If thou wilt be perfect, go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me. But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful: for he had great possessions.” It is not a sin to be rich, but it becomes a sin when “riches possess us,” as they did this young man. God bless you who are blessed and give to the poor, and God bless those who “have nothing,” and yet, give all. Have a great day! Sherry

Blessings for Despeezo

What a wonderful blessing for the “Voodoo village” of Despeezo to receive new Creole Bibles and food!!! The Creole Bibles were purchased by Pastor Gregory Dickow of Life Changers International Church, and the food was donated to us by our friends at Feed My Starving Children. The team that distributed these was the New York Dream Center Team, and Love A Child partners “sponsored the transportation” all the way here from the States, and got everything released from Haiti Customs and finally transported here to Love A Child! When we all “work together,” we can get the job done!!! And as the Haitians say, “you cannot eat okra with one finger… you need the whole hand!” God bless you, and we love you all! Bobby and Sherry

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5 & 6 – Sometimes in our life we have to follow the Lord into situations we don’t understand, trust Him and He will direct your life each and every day.

Special guest speaker at Fond Parisien
05-14-2017 - 12:54 PM

We had a guest speaker in our Fond Parisien Church this morning. I kept thinking, “He looks just like TONY,” who is responsible for our Love A Child schools and our Child Sponsorship Program! It was TONY! He preached so well and with such an anointing that three people received Jesus.  The one in the middle is one of our employees, Frankie the painter! God uses “whom He will!” God bless you! Sherry
