Love in Action

Viewing ministry through the lens of relationships, Gospel, and hope, Haiti Awake is focused on community, church ministry, and economic development in the Tabarre area of Port-au-Prince.  Recognizing that we do live and work in an economically-impoverished community, we often engage in purposeful outreach in order to show Christ's love in action and further Gospel-centered interactions.

In keeping with our purpose and mission, this Christmas we will be providing special encouragment to some of the people in our community who are most vulnerable.  We will do this through the distribution of Christmas gifts which will ease their burden and be practical for the lives they live. 

We invite you to share in blessing them through sponsoring some of the gifts below.

UPDATE:  Through your generosity, another family was added, everyone below is fully sponsored, and everyone will also be receiving beans.  Glwa pou Bondye!

Karwine

Meet Kerwine Dorcelie

Kerwine Dorcelie is a young lady who used to live just a few gates down from our mission house, but now she is homeless and unemployed.   Further, Kerwine has been plauged by a chronic skin condition for nearly 7 years.  We have prayed with her, we have taken medical team members to visit her, and we still have no answers.  She continues to suffer day after day after day.

Two years ago she became a believer, but she rarely goes to church because of her health and because of the social stigma that is attached to her appearance.  When she is able to attend church, she attends Nouvelle Alliance  Church.

A goat, rice, and oil are wonderful gifts to give this Christmas because rice and oil are daily staples and a goat is like a bank account.  As a person invests in the goat through feeding it, the person knows they have something for the future.  

Helping Kerwine is Community Development. She is a fellow believer.   She is our neighbor. She is our friend. We love her and want to bring some joy to her this Christmas season.

Please join us in blessing her with the gifts below. 

Update: Kerwine is fully supported for Christmas.  Glwa pou Bondye!

Meet Moliere Mervil

Mervil is a 69 year old man who is a member of Patriarche Baptist Church, the same church many of our staff members and our children attend.

He recently became a believer and now wants to do the right thing by marrying the woman who has been his common-law wife for many years.

Meet The Jean Robert Masso Family

 

Jean Robert Masso's family lives just down the street from us.  Jean Robert is a builder.

This family is so dear to our hearts because the children always come to our neighborhood Bible schools and have been a part of our community ministry to children since the very beginning.  Many of our short-term team members probably remember the girls, especially Kenny, as she has a large personality.  According to their mother,  they learn a great deal from the Bible school.  

Helping this family is Community Development. These are our neighbors, our friends, children to whom we are teaching God's Word.   We love them and want them to see that love in a tangible way.
