THE WELL NETWORK GETS A NEW NAME
As God is expanding our ministry a new name reﬂecting thefocus of the ministry has been adopted
When we started our ministry in Haiti we partnered with veteran missionary Bob Jones atRoyal Palm Children’s Home. This close knit environment allowed us to become familiar withthe language and culture, as well as understand more possibilities in Haiti. While working hereour hearts have been moved to do more. Moving into 2012, we began exploring opportunitiesto expand our ministry beyond Royal Palm and to partner with other ministries here in Haiti.In Haiti about 50% of the population is children. Many of these children are in need of food, clean water and basic medical care. Last week I went on an exploratory trip with anotherHaitian ministry to evaluate the needs of a remote area in the mountains. This location is abouta 10 hour drive to the middle of nowhere. Nearly100,000people call this place home. Rainwater is the only source of water for the villages located there. Its elevation is too high todig a well and there are no rivers or lakes in walking distance.Without water there is limited food and most of the peoplelive on yams and plantain. Most of the children have wormsand are malnourished, many also have tuberculosis. We areexcited about the possibility of bringing a medical clinicand feeding program to this area. Many great ministriessupplies items such as rice and beans for distribution butit takes someone to connect the resources with the peoplewho need it and that’s what we are doing. Please considerpartnering with us on a monthly basis so we can continueto connect resources to the people and save lives!
