This cutie is Mackenson. We found him in the village of Covant while conducting a Mobile Medical Clinic. He was severely malnourished, and the skin on his little arms was splitting open. He would have died if we had not brought him back to our Love A Child Children’s Home. We made sure he received three hot, nourishing meals each day along with lots of hugs. He has been with us for about five years and was doing very well. He was going to school and learning to read and write. A few months ago, he left for school and while there he had a stroke. He was taken to the Jesus Healing Center, and our medical staff stabilized his condition, and then he was transferred to a hospital for additional medical treatment. He was there for a week or so and then came back home and has been receiving physical therapy since his hospital stay.

We are thrilled to let you know that he is now walking and talking! He has also started to use his arm again, but he still has a long road ahead of him! He will continue to receive physical therapy at a hospital in Port-au-Prince each week. We continue to see daily improvements. He has started going back to school and is doing “what he can.” Thank you, partners, for changing lives in Haiti. Bobby and Sherry

When God blesses us, He expects us to share with others. God may speak to you to give to someone who is not a Christian, or someone who is a Christian, but He always wants us to bless those who are doing good. We share our food with 92 other organizations that are feeding children, just as we are. We do this on a monthly basis with other missionaries. These children are being cared for by TLC Barefoot School. God bless you. Sherry

As you may remember, Alvin Jonsley was brought to our Jesus Healing Center months ago, with his eye “bulging out.” We had scans done and found out that he had a large tumor near his brain, which reached all the way to his eyes. We found a hospital and some wonderful doctors to take care of him, and he had surgery, but they could not remove the entire tumor, as it would have cost him the sight of his other eye. We just found out that he will be in the States for chemotherapy for a year. His cancer has spread to his spine. While there, he is enrolled in a school program. Please continue to pray for Alvin Jonsley. Bobby and Sherry

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:16&17 – I remember when I was younger, this message and scripture were preached all the time. The church looked for the coming of the Lord! It seems like now, I hardly ever hear of anyone preaching on the coming of the Lord. Oh Lord Jesus, come quickly! Jesus may come today! Bobby

We wish to thank MAP International for their wonderful donation of medicine that we recently received. We also thank International Aid for their donation.

This morning, Kaeli and I, and our driver Philemon are going to Hinche, Haiti, to visit the training center for Midwives! It is the best in Haiti!  We will spend the night and travel tomorrow morning to the area where there is an existing Birthing Center so that we can learn from them, on how to run and operate our new Love A Child Birthing Center! More news tomorrow! God bless you. Sherry

“And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.” Jeremiah 18:14 – Having a rough time while having that “clay spirit” of yours rearranged day after day? Does it seem that you take one step ahead and two steps back? Does it feel like “everyone else is getting blessed and you are not?” Well, join the club! We all go through this… The trials and tests are part of the clay refining that the potter (Jesus) does with our lives. However, no matter what you face today, you are in the best place possible…in His hands! Everyday, He is molding you and making you because He loves you! Have a great day, and remember, “We’re not the potter. We are the clay!” Sherry

Thank you, partners, for helping us continue to help feed hungry children here Haiti! God is so good to give us friends like you. Our friend, Karen Bultje, who runs Coram Deo, is feeding these little ones. She feeds a lot of children and also those who bring their babies for surgeries. God bless you, and thank you, partners! Bobby and Sherry

This sweet girl is Jessica Loseau, but everyone calls her Ada. She was born in Port-au-Prince. Her parents, Ana Jean and Fane Loseau were lost at sea when they tried to reach the United States in search of work. Their aunt cared for Ada and her brother Raphael, and sister Bianca, but she was no longer able to feed them. We heard about these little very young children and knew we had to save them. We brought them to our Love A Child Children’s Home where our children welcomed them. Ada is growing up to be a wonderful young lady. She studies very hard at school and is doing really well. She loves to read and enjoys dancing. Ada also loves going to church and praising the Lord. We can’t wait to see how the Lord will use Ada’s life. Thank you, partners, for helping save another child in Haiti! God bless you. Bobby and Sherry

Here is a note from Rad who oversees our Sustainability Projects:

As part of our Agricultural Extension Sustainability Training project, the village of Peyi Pouri just got two “Arborloo” compost toilets for the community. The Walhalla Rotary Club sponsored this community sustainable development project, which provided both a rainwater catchment system and these compost toilets. Here we see Wilner and the ATC staff training the people on the use and benefits of composting toilets as a way to improve sanitation and hygiene while providing a great way to grow beneficial trees at the same time.

The idea is to use the “Arborloos” (a re-locatable compost “latrine”) over shallow compost toilet pits. The dry material in the tub is how you “flush” a compost toilet – the organic material covers the waste, helping it to decompose into beneficial, safe compost. Composting safely and effectively reduces the human waste into useful products. Once the pit is full, you move the Arborloo to another location and plant a tree in the first location. The trees grow very quickly because they now have their own source of nutrients from the compost! Centuries-old “new” technology! You can see how happy the people are to have this improvement for their village. This project is an example of our “Appropriate Technologies” section of the ATC training center. A modest investment into villages like this makes a huge and beneficial impact on their well-being. A huge “Thank You” to the donors who sponsor these kinds of sustainability projects for our neighbors.
