Missionary Bobby Burnette had a vision from God. It was several years ago, while walking on the undeveloped land that had been donated to Love A Child.
At the time, he was praying to God for guidance. The Love A Child ministry had been given a huge parcel of land, but how were they to use it to best serve God’s kingdom? Looking over the many acres of scrub, he suddenly had a vision of hundreds of brightly colored houses. He saw beautiful homes on streets lined with lush gardens.
Bobby was confused. He guessed that God was instructing him to build houses, but he had no idea where he was to find the people to live in them! All those years he waited, confident that God would eventually provide the answer.

In response to this disaster, and with the generous support of many dedicated donors, Bobby’s vision from God was realized with the construction of Miracle Village. We are thankful to our many partners and friends who helped turn Bobby’s vision from God into a bustling community full of hope. Special thanks to Kingdom Connection’s Pastor Jentezen Franklin and Joyce Meyer Ministries’ Hand of Hope for sponsoring the construction and furnishing of the houses in Miracle Village. With this backing and the hard work of hundreds of volunteer mission teams, we cleared the land, built roads, as well as erected the homes, a school, and clinic. Love A Child has created an entirely new way of life for families living in Miracle Village.
After months of living in tents, the people of Miracle Village
now have beautiful, safe homes…
Miracle Village is a subdivision of more than 500 fully furnished single-family homes built on land originally cleared for Camp Hope. The village has quickly grown to include a permanent church for villagers to worship and praise God. Happy children run around the playground and study at the school. After months of living in tents, the people of Miracle Village now have beautiful, safe homes and can learn how to provide for themselves.
To encourage Miracle Village residents and other Haitians to embrace this new lifestyle of self-sufficiency, Love A Child has introduced them to several sustainability initiatives. These Haitians are learning to supply their own food by raising fish, chicken, and eggs. Hope Seeds, Inc. has donated seeds for each family to grow vegetables in their own garden plot. Love A Child has recently completed construction of a massive Marketplace that provides jobs and food security to many Haitians throughout the region. We are also in the process of tearing down our very first school that was built over 30 years ago and rebuilding it so when the school year begins the children in the area will have a safe new school to attend.
