2018 Year in Review
Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support for the children of Haiti. We know without your support our mission would not be possible. Every day we are making a difference in the lives of the children of Haiti through the Word of God, education and nutrition. 2018 was a record-breaking year that brought forth many positive changes and challenges. God has given us more opportunity to educate, feed and share His love with the least of these in Haiti. We would like to thank all our school sponsors, donors, short-term missionaries and prayer partners for their support.

Updates from Mission Teams
Thank you to our teams from Chesapeake Christian Fellowship, The Wisconsin Group, Love Alive Church and Trinity College for making a lasting impact in our ministry in the last quarter of 2018. The CCF team from Davidsonville, Maryland helped with several service projects including painting at our newest school Lacey Lee Christian Academy and our new Schools for Haiti office. They also gave out over 150 pairs of shoes to the local communities. The Wisconsin Group lead a team to help with community ministry and food distribution at a local church. The Love Alive Church team from Baton Rouge, Louisiana came to witness our ministry first hand. They returned home and immediately announced our new partnership to their congregation. The Trinity College team from Trinity, Florida made a lasting impact by imparting training into our teachers and principals. They conducted four workshops with over 100 teachers in attendance. Each of these teams have served in a way that has ongoing results after they return home. We are overwhelmed with the humble servant’s heart of each team member.
We want to recognize every team who served in Haiti in 2018. Thank you to Grace Family Church, SEU Tampa, Chesapeake Christian Fellowship, Celebration Church (Jacksonville), Harvest Church, Love Alive Church, Prince of Peace Church, The Wisconsin Group, Berkley Prep Team, Trinity College, TEN Performance Team, Perry/Fernandez/Hunt Family Team and all those who served on Vision Trips in 2018.
