In America, the month of November represents a time of harvest and Thanksgiving; a time to reflect on the blessings we’ve received over the past year and give thanks for all the joys in our lives. 2015 has been a year full not only of blessings at Christianville, but also of progress and change as we restructure to better connect you in serving the people of Haiti. We apologize that through our transformation, we have not communicated to all of our friends and supporters as well as we should. So, we wanted to take this opportunity to share with you how your contributions have been used through our reorganization to further God’s mission for Christianville.
You have questions; we want to help. Here’s How…
All of this is for your benefit. And as God’s grace reaches more and more people, there will be great thanksgiving and God will receive more and more glory. – 2 Corinthians 4:15
Child Sponsorships Change Lives
School’s In Session! Our four schools started classes in early September. The great news is that we have 1,444 students enrolled to date and the number continues to grow! Praise God as he helps us to educate a people – enrich a nation! This growth however has placed a greater demand on our Child Sponsorship Program and the operational budget needed to run the main LaSalle campus and three satellite schools. Currently, we have only 375 active child sponsors and are looking for additional sponsorships to help fill the need for the other kids who count on Christianville for their Christian education, daily meal and medical care.
Mission House Gets a Fresh Look
We’ve also been busy making improvements on campus this past year too. The Mission House (Old Guesthouse) underwent a guest room refresh. With updated bathrooms, freshly painted rooms and a deep clean, this house is the perfect place for teams to grow and serve together. And we can’t forget to mention the culinary school where now all meals are cooked in a modern kitchen and served in a new cafeteria where guests can relax and share stories from their day in air conditioned comfort while being nourished by food prepared by our students.
Plan Your Mission Trip to Haiti
Are you looking to plan a mission trip or just want to visit as an individual or small group in 2016? We can assist in planning for your next trip to Christianville Haiti. From making your reservation to choosing a project in which to invest your time and resources, we can help you with the details and ensure your time is well spent serving as God has called you to do. The summer months are nearly full so don’t wait to book your trip. If you have a flexible schedule, consider Spring or Fall as great times for mission work in Haiti. Needs exist all 12 months of the year. By considering a visit outside of the summer months you can help to meet those needs year round.
Your contributions and steadfast support has helped us continue the ministry of Christianville. We thank you so much for your dedication to Christianville and the Haitian people and look forward to continued partnership with you! Please enjoy the below video see more of your support in action.
