Wonderful Progress in Haiti

Wonderful Progress in Haiti

 

 
 
Dear partners, family and friends,

July 2010 - Heart of God Haiti

 

We are thrilled to share with all of you the wonderful progress that has been made during the past two months with our team in Haiti.  We were able to move Pastor Dicksent, 7 other adults and 51children into a secure compound in Port au Prince.  As you may remember, 19 of the 23 children that have been receiving medical care for the past three months in Guadeloupe. They oined the others at the compound on July 3rd bringing the total number at the compound to 74 children and 12 adults.  The remaining 4 children continue their stay at Guadeloupe as they are not yet well enough to travel.  We are now certified as an orphanage rather than a children’s school.  However, all the children living at the compound will continue to receive daily lessons and regular schooling.

We have been able to secure a contract with World Vision and Food for the Poor to provide enough food for everyone at the compound for one year.  What a tremendous blessing this is!  There is now enough food for the children to eat three meals a day – something they have not had for quite some time.  The regular meals are helping the children to quickly regain their strength.  

Our monthly budget provides water for everyone living at the compound ($450/month) as well as salaries for the 9 teachers, 2 security guards and a doctor caring for the children ($1,025/month).  In addition we cover the cost of electricity and internet service for the compound as well as cell phone fees so we can maintain communications with our team ($200/month).  Additional food supplies will be needed for the children from Guadeloupe that have recently joined the compound.  This will average about $400/month going forward.   We are looking for individuals who would be willing to provide monthly support to help us meet these needs.  

Life is slowly returning to normal for these children as their physical needs for food, water and a safe place to live are now being met.  The change is evident in the messages we receive from Pastor Dicksent.  The “old” (pre-earthquake) Pastor Dicksent has finally returned.  The desperation and fatigue that was always present in his emails and phone calls since the earthquake has been replaced with joy and praise. 

We wanted to share with you some of his most recent emails so you can read his uplifting messages. Please take a moment to read them exactly as we received them (see below); we have not edited the emails for grammar or spelling. 

Thank you to all of you for your continued support!  Without you, none of this would be possible.
