Northwest Haiti

Our Sewing Classes

Men and women are learning to sew in Northwest Haiti.


Our Port-de-Paix sewing class is already in its second year! In our first year, two Haitian teachers taught 10 students (7 men and 3 women) basic sewing techniques using treadle sewing machines. Known as foot-pump sewing machines, these sewing machines don't require electricity, which is perfect since Haiti's power is often spotty.  

We currently have 6 students enrolled in our second year, advanced sewing class.  These students (all men) are learning advanced sewing techniques, and they're already earning extra income for themselves by sewing school uniforms and making alterations. 


Mole St. Nicolas sewing class.


In April 2016, we began a new partnership with Northwest Haiti Christian Mission's Mole St. Nicolas campus to start a new sewing class there.

The sewing class has one Haitian sewing teacher and 15 students, all of whom are women. The students are learning basic sewing techniques.

In addition to learning a trade that will allow them to provide for themselves and their families, they also desire to make an impact in their community by sewing clothes for orphans, and for people who can't afford nice church clothes.

The Praiseworthy Deeds of the Lord


Psalm 78:4 is one of my favorite verses. It says, We will not hide them from their descendants;     we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord,     his power, and the wonders he has done.

What an awesome verse. I think these phrases are particularly powerful...

"We will not hide."

"We will tell."

"The praiseworthy deeds of the Lord."

"His power."

"The wonders he has done."

In this world, it is all too easy to take credit for something you didn't do. For example, this ministry is here today, because of God. Not me. He gets ALL the credit. I get the blessing of being chosen, for some unknown reason, to help bring it about, and I am honored.

And that is why...

I will not hide.

I will tell.

The praiseworthy deeds of the Lord.

HIS power.

The wonders HE has done.

I look forward to sharing with you all that God does through this ministry. To Him be the glory!
