Hunger Challenge!

Pray for Mission of Hope International

Our friends, Lex & Renee, have returned to Haiti and have “hit the ground running” with renewed strength for ministry.  We are thankful to them for taking time to meet us in Miami to move supplies around before entering the shipyard, and then helping to negotiate a quicker shipment of the bus and trailer.  Check out their ministry at www.mohintl.org

JAARS Team Recap

Men worked on building a sound booth for the Youth Ministry, while the women organized supplies and helped with future crafts, making copies and shredding.  We visited the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte midweek, and got to meet many missionaries that shared amazing stories of service in other countries.

Mission USA Celebration Dinner

Almost 100 people were in attendance at the annual dinner to celebrate the works of God during the past year.  Pastor Bob Heier and his wife, Sally, from Lehigh Acres, Florida were the featured speakers, along with Todd McKenney and Fred & Sandy.  We are so grateful!

Bus and Trailer have arrived!

Miami Shipyard.  The morning of October 30th, Fred & Sandy, Lex & Renee, the bus, pickup and trailer all arrived at the shipyard!  Thank you, Jesus!  The items are scheduled to board the ship around the middle of this month and will be in Haiti by the end of the month!  Thank you to everyone who gave, prayed and loaded!

Pill Bottles on Bus!

God continues to use the Haiti Bus in mighty ways!  Bless Back Worldwide, who sends medical mission teams to Grand Goave frequently, needed to get empty pill bottles to the Mission of Hope clinic.  Melissa, with BBW, was talking with a teammate in Haiti and he said, hey, I hear there is a bus headed this way.  Through Renee, Melissa got Fred’s phone number.  We agreed to haul the bottles in the bus.  Guess where BBW is based?  Charlotte, NC.  Guess where we are?  Waxhaw, North Carolina at JAARS, about 45 minutes away.  This morning, October 25th, Melissa brought 10 huge bags of bottles to us at JAARS with much appreciation.  God is great!

Propane Stoves for Haiti

For teaching cooking and baking to young students for future jobs after graduation.  Our German friends, Holger and Sigrun, will spend six months in Haiti overseeing the training.  These are propane stoves — two of them — to teach more in a short amount of time.

Haiti Mission Trip

February 6-13, 2018

Please pray for the team.  The group is complete at 20.  Team photo coming soon!

Haiti Bus departs October 22

The Haiti Bus is full of nutritious meal packs and will be pulling a trailer filled with dental equipment and kitchen stoves and other baking and cooking equipment and supplies.  Mission USA is donating one of its trailers so that all the items can be delivered.  Additional shipping and port fees will be incurred because of the trailer.  If you would like to donate towards these expenses, please send tax-deductible donation to Mission USA, 544 Taft Avenue, Barberton, OH  44203.

Blessing Buckets heading to Houston

204 Blessing Buckets and over 200 cases of Bottled Water are on their way to Houston!  Thank you, RiverTree Lake Christian Church, for being the collection point this past month.  Families from RiverTree and others in the community filled the buckets with much needed items for Hurricane Harvey survivors.  And many thanks to Heaven Sent Ministries for transferring everything to God’s Pit Crew which has the semi-trucks to haul it all to Houston.  Thank you, everyone!

Hunger Challenge – HUGE SUCCESS!!!

On Saturday, Sept 30, over 200 people packed almost 70,000 meals for the hungry in Haiti and locally.  It was an amazing day of service to the Lord as people joyfully put rice, soy powder, vitamins, minerals and dehydrated vegetables into plastic bags that were sealed and placed into boxes.  Each box was put in the Haiti Bus which will be leaving for the ship yard in Miami at the end of October.
