Update Feb. 19th

All the children attending our schools are so happy. They are all so thankful for the opportunity to get an education.
Update on what has been happening over the last week. We had a team of Dr.'s visit from the States and opened day clinics in our Jacmel and Chabin schools. They had over 2100 visits from people in need for medical attention over a 4 day period. They also provided medicine to each that was in need. For this we are so great full. Thanks Danny for all your hard work in organizing this and interpreting for the Dr.'s.

Construction has started at our Port au Prince location. All things equal the foundation will be completed in 4 weeks.

We just got word the other day that we will be getting a medical clinic built at our Chabin location. This has been a vision of ours for some time but had no idea when it would be possible to have the funds for a project like this. We got word that a church from N.Korea had contacted the Minister of Culture in Haiti of whom I met on my last trip. They advised him they had the funds to build a medical clinic and asked him if he knew of a location this could be built. The Minister knew of our desire to build a clinic at our Chabin location so directed them to us. They will be sending a team of 50 people to construct the clinic in the middle of June. This will provide a much need facility for the people in the mountains to the north of Jacmel. They will also be building a residence for a Dr. and a nurse to live on location. They will also provide all the medicine and equipment we will need for the clinic and the salaries for the staff at the clinic including a Dr. and a nurse. I will have more information on this as time goes by along with pictures as construction starts. We are so thankful to God for opening doors for the precious people of Haiti.

We are in much need of raising more funds to keep the projects expanding in more regions of Haiti. No donation is too small. Call me if you have any questions. 403-502-5925
God bless you... Bob & Linda
