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!

In the Classroom


It has been an exciting week here at the ministry! The sewing classes started on Monday, and we couldn't be more excited! We are very impressed with our teachers (shown in the picture above) and our new students. Here's a few pictures of our students on their first day of school. They start each day with (1) hour of classroom instruction, and then (2) hours of hands-on sewing time. As you might imagine, we need all types of sewing supplies for the hands-on portion of our class - scissors, thread, tape measures, fabric, etc. We are purchasing the sewing supplies in Port-au-Prince, which helps keep the money in the Haitian economy. Interested in helping us stock our sewing classrooms? Visit our Needs page to learn how a donation in any amount can make a big difference to our students.

We look forward to all the great things God will do through this sewing program.

To Him be the glory!

First Day of School


I am thrilled to announce that today is our first day of sewing classes! We have 2 teachers, 3 women and 7 men in the class. We found out that tailors are in high demand in Port-de-Paix so we hope to turn out a few more!

The class is divided into to two groups. One group comes from 7- 9am. The other group from 9-11am. To be fair, they will switch times every other day.

It has been so exciting to watch this ministry unfold over the past year. God has been faithful, and all the credit goes to Him. As the Haitians say, "Bondye bon," which means, "God is good!"

I'd like to extend a special thank you to everyone who has prayed and financially supported this ministry. We are still looking to cover the cost of (4) of the machines and supplies. If you'd like to help us, please visit our Donate page to learn more.
