Over the past 3-4 months, there have been numerous development projects through our partnering churches taking place in Haiti. Below are some picture updates we’d like to share with you. The beautiful thing about our partner churches is how their investment and involvement happens throughout the year, not only when they are on the ground through mission teams. Through giving, going, praying, and equipping, we are partnering together for gospel transformation in Haiti.
Here you see the continued construction in Desdunes. Their partner church is Bethel Baptist Church in Owasso, OK. Their project included the construction of a church building and security wall and gate around property.
Here is an update from the church in L’Estere, located in the Dessalines area of Artibonite region. Their partner church is Oak Park Baptist Church (Jeffersonville, IN). Their project included expansion and completion of church building, housing for deacon, private and public bathrooms, purchase of adjacent land for well, farming, and chicken coop, and security wall/gate.

Here are some of the children in the orphan school with Pastor Denny and some local school teachers.
Drouin is a recent church plant west of Desarmes that needed a larger meeting space for their school and gathered worship. Through the support of their partner church, Cornerstone Baptist Church (Wylie, TX), they are coming close to the completion of their expanded space!
Pastor Toussaint in Calas had a terrible year in 2016. He was forced out of his house due to local opposition, was an in terrible accident where he was the only survivor, and then lost his temporary home due to Hurricane Matthew. But that is not the end of the story! By God’s grace and through the partnerships of Immanuel Church (Birmingham, AL) and Resonate Church (Madison, TN), the church in Calas expanded classroom space for their orphan school, acquired additional land in the back which allowed our local leadership to build a house for pastor Toussaint and his family.
