What is Child Sponsorship? Quite simply said…it is HOPE! If you follow our blog for any amount of time you will see firsthand what it is and how it works through the personal accounts we will be recording.
It is easy to get involved and easy to make a difference! By sharing a monthly gift (currently $30 for an individual student or $125 for an entire school) you can give a child in a third world country the opportunity to receive a Christian education including a uniform, books and supplies. More importantly you can give a child HOPE that they can rise above their present circumstances as well as the true HOPE that can only be found in Christ! In many cases schools remain open simply because of the sponsored children in attendance. For more information, visit this link: http://www.acworldrelief.org/sponsorships/
Waiting for school to start! Some have walked several miles!
On our recent orientation trip to Haiti we visited seven schools and also witnessed two lunch programs in progress. We will share a few special stories from those visits in future posts!
Everything is finished off in a hurry!

I am so excited for the adventure God has called you to as you serve Him in Haiti! Having been to Cayes 4 times and volunteered in the child care office I have a taste of what you will be doing. I love it that I can picture the area where you live and know Tim and Joan so well and a few others who you will be working with.
I wish you the best as you transition into your new life there!! May God bless you abundantly as you glorify Him in your service to the Haitian people. Looking forward to hearing more about how things are going and what you are doing there! Take care!! Love, Marilyn

Thanks for your encouragement! The biggest thing facing us is learning Creole when we arrive or we won’t be effective. We can’t wait until you come see us! We are staying in Tim & Joan’s lower level for now.

Hey Walders, thanks for sharing your blog with us. Know that we have added you to our prayer list, and we would still love a pic for the bulletin board! 😉 Looking forward to hearing of how God uses you in His kingdom work in Haiti!
