Heart of God Haiti: August Update

Heart of God Haiti

The Ream Family Joins Heart of God Team in Haiti

We are pleased to introduce to you Eric and Elisabeth Ream as part of the expanding mission in Haiti.  The Ream’s came to us through Pastor Paul Burress of

Eric & Elisabeth Ream
Eric & Elisabeth Ream

Victory Church in Rochester. Eric and Paul were roommates in College who developed a lasting friendship. While in Haiti last year, Eric came to meet the Heart of God mission team; we soon found our vision and purpose were identical and their work would further our agenda in Haiti to include pastoral training, evangelism, micro-financing, and more. Through much prayer and discussion, we welcomed Eric and Elisabeth as part of our ministry team.

Please take a moment to learn more about Eric and Elisabeth and their awesome family on their blog at Also watch for updates by the Ream’s on our main ministry blog at You are invited to send them a note welcoming them to the Heart of God Haiti team using their new email addresses:



They will be happy to hear from you and would welcome your words of encouragement.


Meet Nadine

At 13 years of age, Nadine is one of our oldest girls. Her mother works at the Center and her two younger sisters, Nerlande and Bianca, live here as well. Nadine has a beautiful singing voice and is often heard leading the kids in worship from their beds at night.  She is a fast learner. Among other ways, her quick learning abilities present themselves in the classroom. She has been picking up English consistently since the beginning of the year and her pronunciation continues to improve.

One of her favorite parts of English class is when she gets to do puzzles or look at books, especially the “Little Critter” books. She laughs hysterically at the illustrations.

Nadine has amazing hair styling abilities. She often braids her sisters’ hair in interesting patterns and designs. It is easy to see Nadine working in a beauty salon someday but she would thrive in college and eventually the professional world.

How You Can Help
Erin has worked closely with Pastor Justin to identify the most urgent needs at the Center.  The main one is completing the roof to prevent rain from flooding the hallway into the bedrooms and bathrooms and to cover the porch area making it useful during inclement weather.  It will take $1000 to cover labor and materials for a 4 day project in order to complete this priority project. We are sharing a couple other priority projects which, when completed, will give the children and staff dry living quarters, access to flush toilets, easily accessible reserves of water and more. 

  • Roof over hallway and porch:  $1000
  • Completion of bathroom:  $1500
  • Cistern repair and spigot:  $750

If you would, please prayerfully consider what God would have you to do partner with us on these much needed improvements to the Children’s Center in Haiti.  Thank you so much for your partnership!

Ream Team Dream Machine Fundraiser

Can you imagine being in Haiti with a family and expanding ministry responsibilities without a vehicle? If you’ve not been there, it may be hard for you to imagine. Just think piggybacking on motorcycles (motos), being crammed in the back of a pickup truck with several other people and/or animals (tap-taps), finding someone you can hire to drive you where you need to go, or simply walking. That’s been the way of life for the Reams. Without complaint, they have accepted this as part of their call to Haiti as missionaries. They are truly amazing!

Time has come, however, for them to have a vehicle. The breadth of their work in Haiti continues to expand and depending on public transportation, rented or borrowed vehicles, etc., has come to an end. They desperately need a vehicle.

Based on their needs, they have looked at all their options and have found a source for safe vehicles that will meet their needs which sets our goal at $8,000 for them to purchase a vehicle. It’s reasonable. It’s feasible. It’s doable with your help!
