Where we are and where we are going!!!

We will be going back to Haiti on the 16th of Mar. and returning back to Canada on the 1st of Apr. If your interested in going on a short term mission trip to Haiti we have room on this trip. Contact me ASAP.

The government of Haiti have offered us some land in the north part of Haiti near the Dominican. We still have 16 locations we want to open before we start a school in this area but we will go to have a look at the location in March. They will transfer the land over to us. This is a huge breakthrough.

Where we are at the present time is that we have 22 schools in 16 locations with 3300 students. Some of our schools are used for three functions and sometimes four when missionary Dr. use them for medical clinics. For example our Chabin location has an elementary school, a high school, and an adult school. Our Jacmel school is an elementary school, an adult school and a bible school.

I am excited about some of the things that are starting to come together. For example we have been granted a certificate from the Haitian Government as a Public Recognition Organization which gives us special privileges for shipping things into the country. While we are waiting for the paper work to get done they have give us a permit to start as soon as we are ready.

If anyone reading this would like me to come and make a presentation to your business, school, church, family or foundation please drop me a note from my contact information.

"Thank you for making a difference" We are just getting started.
