Published January 8, 2015 – Categories: Caring for Orphans, Family, Haiti, LSM, News, Uncategorized

There always seems to be a lot going on at LSM. Our staff puts in great effort to maintain day-to-day operations, grow our programs and dream of new and exciting ways we can further change children’s lives. This week is no exception. Here’s just a hint of some exciting things happening in Haiti this week:


Welcoming Home

Published December 15, 2014 – Categories: Caring for Orphans, Family, Haiti, LSM

This week, we welcome 24 children home. 


24 vulnerable children who have been abused, rejected, abandoned, orphaned and forgotten are going to walk into a Home of Hope and leave those words and that identity of hopelessness behind. Because in this home, they are going to hear different words from their new mom and dad: words like acceptance, love, family, hope… future.


Orphan Sunday

Published October 29, 2014 – Categories: Caring for Orphans, LSM, News, Uncategorized

This Sunday (November 2) is a globally recognized day for one very special reason: the orphan.

Where it all started:

A local pastor in a poor rural village in Zambia asked his struggling members to joyfully give to care for the orphans in their community. That day, an visiting American watched as those people gave what they could – a little money, a bit of food, even their own shoes. That day not only changed that American’s life, but would transform many more to come.

I don’t know about you, but this weather makes me want to curl up with a cup of hot cider and a good book. Here’s a few books that I’m excited to read this fall.



First Thoughts in Haiti: A Vision Trip

Published September 25, 2014 – Categories: Caring for Orphans, Family, Haiti, LSM, Uncategorized

This week, we’ve got a group from Holland Heights Church in Michigan visiting our work in Haiti. They’re experiencing many “firsts” and we’re so excited for the impact that it’s having in their hearts. Their church sponsors one of our Home of Hope families – and among learning about Haitian culture and witnessing a much different lifestyle, they’ve also been able to spend time with the family they support.


Here’s a few things they’re saying about their experiences so far:

A Glimpse at our Staff in Haiti

Published August 26, 2014 – Categories: Business, Caring for Orphans, Haiti, LSM, Uncategorized

We couldn’t say enough good things about the staff we have in Haiti. From our office staff, construction teams and Ranch workers to the counseling and pastoral roles others take on to care for all the needs of our families – there are big, incredibly challenging roles to fill. God has certainly blessed us with passionate, Godly people whose hearts are tuned to the work at hand.


VBS Day 5 (Sunday)

Published August 18, 2014 – Categories: Caring for Orphans, Family, Haiti, LSM, Uncategorized

Sunday was celebrated at the Cancer Redemption Church with all 16 Homes of Hope and visitors present. What a powerful day. This was the first Sunday that the Cancer Redemption Church held a service. Many of the homes shared songs, the new Pastor gave a moving sermon and we joined together as we thanked God for so much in this place.


VBS Day 2

Published August 15, 2014 – Categories: Caring for Orphans, Family, Haiti, LSM, News

Part of the week at VBS is split into different speakers that come and share on a variety of different topics. It’s a fun way to communicate some important messages and bring in different, well-known faces. And so as we started the second day of VBS, we launched it with some great breakfast and a talk.
