The Lord has supplied the funds to build “seven houses” for “seven families” who live in the garbage dumps of Haiti. As you may know, we have been working in the garbage dumps for some time now, feeding all the people each month. We have taken “three large families” from the garbage dumps and put them in new houses that were sponsored by our partners. We have also been able to give jobs to some of the family members.

Now, we have the funds to build “seven new houses” for “seven poor families” who live in the garbage dumps. Because we are building several projects right now, we are scattered thin and need your help. We are looking for a team of volunteers and would prefer that some have building experience. We need others who can help carry boards, do nail work, and learn. Let’s get these poor families out of the dumps. They break our hearts, especially the children. Let’s work on some dates that you may be able to come. You can respond on Facebook or call the Fort Myers, Florida office and speak to Rad at (239) 210-6107. “Love Is Something You Do!” Bobby Burnette

“The Hairs of His Head Began to Grow…” Judges 16:22 (Continued from yesterday)
Now, we see Samson, his head shaven, captured by his enemies and blind. They put his feet in fetters of brass and had him grinding corn like an ox. They made fun of him. Now, he was nothing, and he had nothing because of disobedience. I believe as he began to repent, all that time he was “grinding in the prison,” the hairs of his head began to grow! Listen, it’s never too late. Samson repented. I believe he wept, and his “hairs on his head began to grow!” You know the story. They had brought him out before thousands of Philistines to make fun of him and Samson quietly prayed, “Oh, Lord God, remember me.” And God did. Samson took hold of those huge pillars, one arm around each and pulled the “house down” killing over 3,000 Philistines! God could have turned His back on Samson, but I believe that “God’s Spirit came upon him one last time.” The Spirit of God is precious, and God is a merciful God, but “obedience is better than sacrifice!” Have a great day!

IT’S SUMMER TIME!

All of our children from our Children’s Home are out of school for the summer! It is a big job keeping them all busy and making sure they are learning lifelong skills! Each child has a different desire, and we do our best to help them fulfill their dreams! Below you will see Daniella and Hannah working in our Mobile Medical Clinic filling and labeling medications. Colin and Lionel love working at our Tilapia Fish Farm! Today they were given the task of cleaning out one of the tanks! Job is the one you see holding the chicken! He is working today with the chickens and learning how to give them proper care! Christian is working in the garden planting new vegetables and cleaning out the weeds! Kenson, who is under the truck, is learning all about becoming a mechanic! This is what summer is all about! Our kids love to work and learn new things! We are so proud of them! Blessings, Kaeli

“And he knew not that the Spirit of the Lord had departed from him.” (Judges 16:20) (Part One)
I think if someone were to ask me, “What is one of the saddest verses in the Bible?” I would have to say “this one.” Samson had been dedicated to the Lord from his mother’s womb and God was using him to conquer the Philistines. But Samson disobeyed the Lord when he married Delilah, who was sent from the devil to trap him. He told his secret to her, and she called the Philistines in to cut his hair.
I can see him now, when Delilah yelled the third time, “The Philistines be upon thee.” He thought, “No problem, I’ve got this.” But, the Bible says, “He knew not that the Spirit of the Lord had departed from him.” King David said, “Take not thy Holy Spirit from me.” Psalm 51:11 – Today, if you sense the Spirit of God in your life, and you know He is there, begin to praise Him. If you ever lose the Spirit of God, you’ve lost everything. Sherry

Update on the Birthing Center
06-17-2018 - 4:05 PM

Our Haitian Construction team is working very hard to finish our Birthing Center for poor, pregnant Haitian mothers. This Center is also a Teaching Center to teach Haitian women how to care for their babies, as well as prenatal, delivery and postnatal care. We wish to thank Mark Ostrander and his son, Jesse. They work very hard overseeing the construction projects, such as Madamn Adeline’s orphanage, this Birthing Center, housing for the poor, and many other projects. A Haitian Creole Proverb says, “With a lot of hands, the load is not heavy.” We want to thank the Lord for Mark, Jesse, our Construction Crew and our wonderful partners, like you! May God richly bless you. Bobby and Sherry

Handmade Hats for Children

We take many things in life for granted, because God has blessed us so, so much. Haiti is such a poor country that something like a hat is such a treasure! Loraine Tucker, one of our partners, sent us caps and even handmade baby bonnets! Everyone was so happy! Thank you, Loraine! God bless you. Bobby and Sherry

Sherry and I want to wish all the fathers a “Happy Father’s Day” today. May we be godly fathers and godly husbands. Psalm 103:13

I had promised to share with you on how to know the perfect will of God from a wise, old prophet who gave me a word of wisdom many years ago. He told me that life was like a jigsaw puzzle. I would move around in the puzzle of life falling into a square hole but not fitting there. I would fall into a rectangular hole and would not fit there. He said the time would come when I would fall into the perfect fit in the puzzle of life. Then I would know this is where God’s perfect will is! I love studying Ecclesiastes Chapter Three all about the timing of God in our lives. Bobby

Clothing for the poor Haitians

Children are the future…
These little children are Haiti’s future. Having a new, clean dress means everything to these little ones! Thank you to Dorothy McCune, for these beautiful handmade dresses! “For I was naked, and ye clothed me…” God bless you. Bobby and Sherry

How can I find God’s perfect will in my life? God has put a still, small voice into all of us. If we pray and listen to that still, small voice, He will lead you to His perfect will. “But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law.” Galatians 4:4 — In Ecclesiastes Chapter Three, Solomon talks all about time. “A time to every purpose under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 — Many years ago, I asked a wise, old prophet of God, “How do I find and how will I know when I’m in the perfect will of God?” He gave me an answer that changed my life forever. Tomorrow morning, I will tell you, and you will remember what I said years from now. Bobby

Update on Natalie
06-15-2018 - 8:20 PM

We don’t know if you heard the story of this little cutie, her name is Natalie, and she is very sweet. When Natalie Norvil was less than a year old, her father brought her to our Malnutrition Clinic because she was terribly underweight and so thin. Natalie’s mother had passed away, and her father couldn’t care for her. She had to stay at the Malnutrition Clinic for quite a while until her health improved. We looked for her father, even in his remote village, but we never found him. We brought Natalie into our Love A Child Children’s Home where she became a member of our big family of Haitian children. She was given three hot, nourishing meals each day and her brothers and sisters carried her around and hugged her all the time. She feels lots of love from our big family. Natalie is getting a Christian education, she is very smart and loves going to school. She likes to sing with her sisters during evening devotions. This little girl’s life has been changed because of our Love A Child partners. Thank you all for loving Natalie. “Love Is Something You Do!” Bobby and Sherry
