APRIL 2017 NEWSLETTER

Last month during our extended stay in Haiti, we distributed over 100 shoes from The Show That Grows to the children who live in Belo, a small village on the mountain top of Fonds-des Negres, located in the South of Haiti. Other recipients of the shoes also included the children of Sapotille Family Home in Port-au-Prince, and those from Kominote Ti Fanmi Nou de Diakonos in Carrefour.

We give God glory for another successful distribution which was the water filtration systems donated by Healing the Children. This distribution had such a positive impact on the villagers of Belo who were very happy to have an opportunity to drink clean and safe water.

A JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES BEGINS WITH A SINGLE STEP

This past March was an amazing month for Our Small Community of Family. We took another small step towards our corporate vision as we continue with the transformation of the children’s home which was both exhausting and exhilarating.

Thanks to our wonderful NGAs (Next Generation Ambassadors) who raised over $5,000, we were able to execute the following projects:

Project #1 – Re-roofing of the house

We now have a new roof with no more leaks. This was the main purpose of the NGA’s fundraising and it will contribute to our Godchildren’s safety.

Project #2 – Electrical rewiring of the whole house

Some of the walls were torn down and we rewired the entire house with new wires and we installed the Solar Powered Generator donated by Dr. Sabrina Tassy from St. Phillips Church and Schools. Now the children can do their homework after the sun goes down and, they can also enjoy having electricity on demand.
