No Complaining. Just a simple ”Thank You”

IMG_0362
Last week, Prit and I joined our church committee in Petite Anse to meet with our Zone Leaders. These leaders oversee the communities where cell groups are located.
The reason for the meeting was to discuss the distribution of the food boxes which have been sitting in our school’s depot all this time since schools are still closed.
We were in awe as we listened to them share from their hearts.
Not. One. Complaint. was uttered concerning how difficult life is here or the havoc that the Pandemic has wreaked upon a land that was already bearing up under a measure of untold suffering.
All we heard were humble, heartfelt thanks for the funds that Orphans Promise approved for them to hand out to hungry families.
I wish you could have been there, for it was a humbling experience. There was a feeling of awesome reverence in the room – of US towards THEM.
Friday, food boxes (loaded on the back of motorcycles) found their way to each zone leader’s home and then they were distributed among the families that gathered there. There was not enough food to give each family their own box, yet it was free food. We prayed that somehow the Lord would multiply the contents in each bag.
Rehoboth also gave an additional $1,000 to alleviate their suffering, thanks to the monthly giving of our own donors into the feeding account.
Dana – When I send a worker to the marché, it is costing 3x what it used to because the prices have drastically increased. Each time, I wonder how the members of our churches and the average Haitian can even afford to put a decent meal on their tables.
(These are the most basic essentials in life!)
 Food and Water
Yet, even here, staying alive has become a necessity. Thank you, Orphans Promise and friends of Rehoboth, for enabling us to put food in the mouths of both adults and children.
You can help too!
Won’t you become a partner with Rehoboth to help provide this basic need? 
There will be no complaining. Just a simple ”thank you.” 🙂
**Boxes were also sent to our other two church plants in Sainte-Philomène and Belle-Hôtesse which are also a part of the feeding program.

I Want To Be One Of The….

Great news! $19,000 has been raised towards our Solar Panel Project. When we sent out our last update, we had reached our $15,000 goal.

Asking for 15 donors who would send a $1,000 gift to help us finish up this project quickly, we received incredible feedback from folks who wanted to be part of this fundraiser.  One donor wrote……

”Hi Mrs. Adams! Jordan and I felt led to be one of your 15.”

We are amazed at the response we’re receiving and thank each and every one who has given towards this cause.  Now we’re punting the ball to you….

Would you be one of the 11 donors left to contribute $1,000 to our Solar Panel Project?

If you can’t sow $1,000, any gift would be appreciated!

Think About It!

You can be one of those who helped provide electricity for a student so he or she would not have to sit in a class with 80+ degree weather all the while trying to get an education.

We’re Almost Halfway!

We are amazed at the generosity of our friends and donors, especially during this difficult time in our history. We now have $14,426 towards our solar panels. To make our goal for today, we have $574 remaining. That way, we will have raised $15,000 by the 15th which is today! Would someone like to help put us over the hump?

Thanks to all of you who have sown into this fundraiser!

15 by the 15th!

number-15-red-background-hi

Hi Everyone,

We want to thank those who have been giving into the Solar Panel Fundraiser. We now have a little over $12,600 towards our $30,000 goal. We would love to reach $15,000 by the 15th of the month. That’s only 2 days away. Can you help us get over the hump?

If you haven’t seen our previous post about the need for solar panels on this compound, you can check out the link here.

Could I just add one more reason? Our water pressure is not strong enough to flush our toilet. Every time we use our toilet, we have to pour a bucket of water down it to keep it flushed. This is very tiring, not to mention ”time-consuming.” Are you convinced yet? 🙂 No gift is too small!

A Light In The Darkness

 

 

african-990326__480

Hunger. Unemployment. Lack of Medical Care. A Dismal Future. All these describe the land where we live.We have been in Haiti for 37 years. Yet, we have never seen the level of poverty that we see today. Aid provided from other nations rarely reach the average Haitian and now with the Pandemic afoot, Haiti is at an all-time low.  Almost everyone is out of work, the people we live among and work with are suffering from hunger, and nothing is functioning except for a few stores in town.

The exchange rate is mounting almost on a daily basis. Today $1 US = $20.80 Haitian. When Prit and I look at what we spend just for the needs of our own home, we have to ask ourselves – how in the world does the average Haitian live? I even shared an article in another post which warned that Haiti is in danger of facing a famine. But, here’s some GREAT news………

Thank you, Orphans Promise!

Orphans Promise allowed us to use the monthly funds for April to distribute to the members and families of our local churches. The Pastors distributed the funds to their cell groups who in turn blessed each family with money to buy their own food in the marché. Some cell groups bought the food themselves and separated it among the families.

News is trickling back to us from all the churches about these families. I wish I could relay to you the elation of these brothers and sisters whose burdens have been temporarily lifted. Can you imagine the satisfaction they receive – especially in watching their children fill their stomachs?  With others’ help, we have been able to temporarily assuage their hunger. Rehoboth also had the capacity to lift this burden by giving $1,000. This is because other wonderful donors who support our ministry sow regularly into the feeding fund. Many thanks to these wonderful individuals.

Check out this link and see what Orphans Promise is doing all over the world!   Orphans Promise

Thank you Orphans Promise and our own donors for being a light in the darkness to our people!

10 Reasons YOU Can Make A Difference!

sun-9006693.jpgIt’s 86 degrees in Cap-Haitian today! It’s too bad the beaches are closed due to the Corona Virus. If we had air conditioners here at home, it would be more tolerable. We’d just ignore the heat outside and sit back, put our feet up, and read a good book. Unfortunately, our generator is not strong enough to carry the strength of an AC, so floor fans and ceiling fans will have to suffice for the moment ….. and cold baths! Living on a tropical island is not always a paradise as some may think. We are praying for rain! 

How would you like to help us raise some funds for new solar panels? Our goal is $30,000 and we already have over 1/3 of it raised – $10,600! We’re $19,400 short and every gift counts!

10 reasons why having panels in place would make our lives more tolerable!

  1. Help our elementary  and Bible students here on our compound to study better with cooler air in their classrooms. The other side of the compound has no electricity except that which comes from the city. This is very sporadic.
  2. No electricity means an inability to communicate with our family, friends, and donors. Having internet connects us with the outside world.
  3. All meetings and events scheduled will not be interrupted by a power outage.
  4. We spend a whopping $350 a month just on diesel fuel. The $350 doesn’t include money for oil, battery water, and an occasional need to call our electrician in case our generator is overworked. The money could be best used elsewhere.
  5. We could eventually provide a computer lab for our Bible school students. Maybe we could even move to online classes therefore inhibiting a Pandemic or anything else from ever closing down our schools again.
  6. Solar panels would enable us to purchase a refrigerator and freezer to start a small business and put people to work.
  7. As we add other rooms to our two mission houses on the compound for visiting teams or guests, we could provide them with a cooler place to stay.
  8. Since pumping water into our cistern requires electricity, we would be able to pump it when it’s needed instead of waiting on the city current.
  9. I may actually be able to use my crock pot that was given to me years ago!
  10. Last, but not least, we can get a good night’s sleep and not have to endure the insufferable heat.

Just use the ORANGE donate button or send a check. There is information below that tells one how to do so. Your giving would mean SO much!

Celebrate With Us! The Two Are One!

 

94386704_2558964687703110_32065603061678080_n.jpgDue to the present circumstances with the Pandemic, our plans have totally been changed. We were due to fly to Portland, Oregon, to attend the wedding of our son, Gabe, and his beautiful fiancé, Ciara, on June 20th. No matter how they tried, it was just impossible for them to make plans with the uncertainty of the times. With everything shut down for now, Gabe and Ciara decided to go ahead and get married and celebrate with family at a later date.

Prit, John, and I watched the beautiful joining of these two lives on our laptops from Haiti which took place in their pastor’s back yard. Although the sound was in and out, we did get to witness their vows and becoming one. We are so happy for them!

Most of you have seen this on our facebook pages, but just in case you didn’t, we present to you Mr. and Mrs. Gabriel Christopher Adams and welcome Ciara into the family fold. We are incredibly happy for them and look forward to a grand reception when we’re back stateside. We definitely plan to make up for the moments lost this coming September, Lord willing. If you would like to watch their wedding, you can visit gabeandciara.com. Would you remember also to pray for them as well for their new life together? We know that would mean a lot to them.
