Help Us Help Haiti

In February of 2014, Todd and I will be traveling with a team from The River Church to St Louis De Nord, Haiti.  We will be working with the Northwest Haiti Christian Mission to continue their mission to bring people out of spiritual, physical and social poverty and demonstrate God’s love to all. Here is some of what we will be experiencing:

The Miriam Center houses 40 plus special needs children who are orphaned.
The Nutrition Program allows parents to bring their children for meals daily at the mission.
An Eye Team will be traveling with us to Haiti and will be performing eye exams, fittings for glasses and even cataract surgeries
The Gran Moun is a place for elderly people who are unable to care for themselves.

We have been told never to make plans when you go to Haiti but instead keep your hands open, your heart tender and your spirit ready to serve in whatever way possible.  The four ministries mentioned are just a small portion of all of the things we, as a team, will be exposed to.  More than anything, Todd and I want to be the hands and feet of Jesus as we build, feed, repair and love on the Haitian people. We also have a special young man whom we have sponsored for three years now that we can’t wait to wrap our arms around!  Ti-Franz was in the orphanage when I first met him in 2010, but now he is living in a placed called House of Moses for young men and women.  We can’t wait to see what God is doing in his life!
Together, Kim and I must raise $4000 in order to go.  We realize that we are facing a HUGE fundraising task but we believe that if others will partner with us, we can do it! Please consider being a part of our journey to Haiti!  All donations are tax deductible and will help us change lives. Somehow. I think ours will be changed just as much.

In Christ,
Todd and Kim Porter
