There is a brand new future waiting for 12 vulnerable boys.
Recently, Pastor Wilfrid Remonvil, our Haitian Home of Hope Director, joined us in the Midwest to talk about this new Home of Hope in LaSource, Haiti.
Just one month prior, Pastor Wilfrid stood among the ramshackle huts that pepper the Haitian countryside, deeply saddened at the terrible conditions many children in his country are forced to live in. Through much prayer, searching and interviewing, our Haitian team selected 12 vulnerable boys to be a part of this new LaSource family, where their lives will take a dramatic turn.
Pastor Wilfrid has also already worked with a young couple who have a heart for God. Jean and Emise have been selected to be the new Home of Hope parents at LaSource. They are now fervently praying that the arrival of their precious new children, 12 boys they will call their sons, will become reality.
You can come alongside this new family as an ongoing family sponsor to ensure these boys will never again have to go through another day without the love of a mom and dad, or suffer through the night with an empty belly.
(minimum monthly gift of $35/month.)
Please prayerfully consider how you can partner with us to transform the lives of these precious children!
This past weekend, over 200 youth gathered in Bluffton, IN to make new friends, inspire one another, and help several organizations with service projects. It was exciting to see so many passionate young people learning to make a difference, and then putting what they learned into action in tangible ways. We were thrilled to have some of them come to learn more about Haiti, including how they can make a difference right from the heart of Indiana!
After learning about Homes of Hope and seeing some of the real difference LSM is making in these children’s lives, the young men and women had a chance to write out personalized prayers for each of our Haitian children!
Sometimes there are stories that hit you square between the eyes. Polly’s* is one of them.
Only a few years ago, Polly stood here with her uncle who was caring for her in front of his hut. Falling apart, dirty, barely providing relief from the elements, the hut was no place to be raising an orphaned little girl. He knew it. And he wanted more for her. But on his own, there was no way he could do anything.
This Saturday – March 5!
A million details. A thousand thanks. Hundreds of kids helped. One unforgettable evening.
These numbers serve as a powerful reminder that when we pull together, big things happen. But none bigger than the impact on the hundreds children who will be reached as a result of LSM’s Annual Benefit Auction.
Is God calling you into a greater personal commitment to care for orphans? Being well-supported in your ministry will encourage, strengthen and equip you for the day-to-day journey.
Here are five organizations producing great content and resources that can help:
“Seeking justice begins with seeking our God who created justice.” —Bethany Hoang, Author of The Justice Calling, Advisor for International Justice Mission
Saturday, February 20 is the World Day of Social Justice—a time to promote freedom, equality and hope, and to take action to help eradicate poverty and support the dignity of all humans, especially the forgotten children on the fringes of society.
As you reflect on this today, spend some time with God considering how He might use you to bring justice to the world’s most vulnerable.
