Praise God!

Praise God! Because of so many of you giving generously, our matching grants were met this Christmas season! Your gifts have multiplied and will continue providing vulnerable children with stable families, child development resources and even higher education and job opportunities as adults.
Because of you, once desperate children can do more than dream of better futures … they have the resources to live their dreams! And, through your example of selfless service to others, they can become leaders in their own communities to help the next generation do the same.

LSM EXISTS TO SERVE THESE VULNERABLE CHILDREN, AND WE ARE EMPOWERED TO DO SO BY YOU – NOT ONLY AT THE END OF THE YEAR, BUT THROUGH EACH SEASON.

Thank you to every one of you who makes this incredible, life-changing work a reality.
There is much more to do in the coming year, and we can’t wait to see how God continues to use your heartfelt generosity to help the world’s most vulnerable children.

HERE’S A FEW WAYS TO START OUT THE NEW YEAR: 

1. Become a Prayer Partner. (We want to know how we can pray for you too!)
2. If you didn’t get a chance to give this Christmas, you can donate here. 
3. Consider becoming an ONGOING FAMILY SPONSOR this year and join a specific family in Haiti or Ethiopia!

The Best & Blessed of 2016

2016 has been a formative year for LSM both inside and out. Through the incredible programs launched, schools built and disasters navigated, we have emerged stronger than ever, with you at our side and a humble thankfulness for all God has done.

 

In 2016, we were so blessed through your partnership to:

 

Child Development - Welsh School1. Open a brand new school in Welsh, Haiti where over 200 children from two of our Home of Hope families, as well as boys and girls throughout the local community, are now attending! The school was dedicated in June and, ever since, it has been a powerful source of outreach in a desperately poor area where many children have never before had access to an education.

 

 

 

 


laptops2. Launch exciting new resources in our Child Development program in Haiti! Through the generosity of our donors, we were able to meet and exceed the $40,000 matching challenge for our Summer Newsletter with all the funds going to Child Development.

Among other things, this allowed us to provide laptops for all the kids to help with schooling! Dominique, our Chantal 1 Dad is now the tech/computer advisor for each Home of Hope to ensure they know how to use their new tools effectively for school and research!

 

 

 

 


Ethiopia 3(1)3. Launch new programs in Ethiopia to expand our reach to more vulnerable single mothers and their children. These programs are PREVENTING some of the atrocities that we have worked tirelessly to bring healing to in the past. Through these prevention programs, at-risk families are empowered to succeed with the financial, educational and emotional support they need, all with the support of the local Ethiopian evangelical church.

 

 

 

 


hurricane4. Rally around our staff, families and local communities in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew in the Les Cayes, Haiti area. Not only were we able to repair several damaged LSM buildings and property, but through your giving, we were able to reach out into some poor, totally devastated areas and provide food programs, sheet metal for roofs and much more.

 

 

 

 

 


That’s certainly not all. Read here for more of the incredible ventures God led us through in 2016.

 

All of this is done with a powerful, clear end-goal in mind – something we strive to keep front and center in everything we do. We believe that as these vulnerable children are empowered to grow into self-sufficient adults, they will go out and transform their communities and culture for Christ.

 

What a powerful thing to work towards together: the expansion of Christ’s Kingdom through the “least of these.” Every child we serve is a part of this vision. And we pray that it’s part of yours as well.

 

We are so excited for the ways God will use LSM—and especially all of you—to make this a reachable goal in 2017.
