2016 is here! and we would like to especially thank our church family, Valley Family Church, and our partners – Airline Ambassadors International and Mission Love Seeds  – as well as everyone of our supporters and contributors who supported our work last year. So much was accomplished in 2015! Would you like to find out what exactly? Read on…

A Christmas Story

We’d like to introduce Chestaline (on the left). Chestaline was one of our newcomers last year at Kominote ti Fanmi Nou. She came from the outskirts of Haiti and this Christmas experience was the first real Christmas she has ever experienced.

She was so in awe at the gifts that were given to her that she didn’t know how to act – all she could do was smile and laugh! In her own words, “I am so happy I found a real family where I feel loved”.

Our 2016 Resolutions

We have big plans at Diakonos in 2016, and we’d love to let you in on what our top 3 New Year’s resolutions are …

*Buy a school bus or a passenger van to help transport our children to and from school and their doctors appointments.
*Build the new home where the children of Kominote Ti Fanmi Nou de Diakonos can live comfortably and safely.
*Build a chicken coop to help the children  increase their protein intake.

Valley Family Church

We want to give God praise and thanks for Pastor Jeff and Pastor Beth and our extended family at Valley Family Church for sponsoring our 2015 Christmas party. The kids ate, drank, danced to the DJ’s beats and played games – and let’s not forget the delicious cake. All of them had such an amazing Christmas experience! Thank you!

Mission Love Seeds

What a beautiful thoughtful Christmas blessing from Mission Love Seeds who made it their goal to provide a Christmas gift to the children of Our Small Community of Family in Carrefour, Haiti. Thank you for the beautiful table cloths, matching paper goods and cutlery for our Christmas party. And thank you SO much for facilitating the gift drive for the children!

THANKS (Ten Hugs And Nine Kisses)

We are SO grateful to our amazing team of volunteers and the incredible work they have done to help us accomplish so many things in 2015. Many thanks to our volunteers who put “boots on the ground” to help with all the mission trips — Art Day Celebration and Back to School! We couldn’t have done it without you!

With all of the fundraising efforts, we distributed notebooks and other school supplies to Sapotille School and Kominote Ti Fanmi Nou de Diakonos. We were able to fix our water tank, buy a stove and freezer, and the generator is also now fixed so the children can do their homework at night!

Our NEW Website Debut...

We are so excited with the launch of our newly redesigned website! Have you seen it yet?

If you haven’t, go take a peek. The snazzy look and enhanced navigation is the hard work of our Marketing Director, Sherry Martin-Peters.

Our Art Director, Vlad is diligently working on creating a snazzy, new logo – soon to be revealed! Stay tuned… and please feel free to send us your feedback!
