Invest in a Brighter Future
for Haiti's People!

All of us at Reformation Hope, who depend upon your support and partnership in order to serve the people of Haiti and the Dominican Republic, thought you would like to know some of the ways that you can invest in our mission this year. We cannot accomplish any outreach, training, or mercy ministries unless God works through people just like you. Thank you all for your faithfulness in praying and in financially supporting this kingdom ministry to our brothers and sisters in Hispaniola.

1.

Bible College Library: As our first Bible college class gets closer to graduation, we have found that we need a good, accessible library to help our current and future Haitian theology students with their studies. We are need of financial gifts in order to acquire more books (new and used) in French and in English and to build bookcases and shelving.

3.

Micro-financing: We are looking for entrepreneurs and business leaders who would like to invest not only their financial resources, but also themselves, into helping Haitians start and grow successful businesses.

2.

New Orphanage Project: It is extremely important that we begin construction soon on our new orphanage facility for our Haitian children in order to meet the Haitian government's current requirements for facilities and for proper housing of the children. Your contribution to this project will help place the building blocks into a new and better home for our children.

Medical Clinic and Fill a Container for Haiti: Reformation Hope is planning to send a large shipping container to Haiti late this summer, filled with important items for improving the capabilities of our new medical clinic. We are now accepting both financial contributions toward the project as well as donations of needed items. We have a list available of the things we most need at the end this newsletter and where to send or drop your donation boxes. In addition we have a second list that contains harder to acquire clinic items. All that we ask is that if you pack a box of items for the ministry, please label the box's contents, and that you include a small donation to help us ship it in the container.

 

Sisters for Haiti Dinner a Big Success!

Sisters for Haiti DinnerThe recent Sisters for Haiti fundraising dinner was a well-attended success, featuring authentic Haitian cuisine. Linda Maphet presented the work of this specialized ministry to the women of Haiti and much needed support for the work was raised. Esther Pierre and Linda Maphet will be returning to Haiti in May for a 10-day trip. A two-year hiatus, during which Linda was caring for her terminally ill husband, has necessitated a re-start for this ministry which has involved building relationships with the women there, arranging for prayer partnerships between American and Haitian women, discipleship through providing encouragement and study materials, and the offering of assistance towards a possible cooperative micro-enterprise.

 

Sisters for Haiti to Develop an Organic Gardening Program

Sisters for HaitiA new Sisters for Haiti initiative offers assistance to women to start organic gardening. This will provide the women with knowledge and tools to grow nutritious food for their families in small spaces using permaculture practices. This practice uses a minimum of tools, no machinery, no fertilizer or pesticides (lowering production costs), and enables growers to build up the soil naturally with compost to provide the microbes and minerals needed for more nutritious and tasty fruits and vegetables.

In contrast, the "Big Farm" agriculture practices strip the soil of microbes, lower the nutritional value of the produce, and induce poisons into the soil which are then widely ingested. The local, sustainable agriculture movement, even endorsed by the U.N., strives to eliminate the unhealthy farming practices and return to a more natural approach to agriculture. Christians, of course, realize that this simply cooperates with God's own design for the earth's ecosystem.

It will take time to teach this approach, as well as to build up the soil, to plant, and begin to reap the benefits, but it is hoped that the women will be able not only to provide more nutritious food and a more varied diet, but also be able to sell the excess, and generate income. In the Haitian culture, it is typically the women who tend to have a stronger work ethic, because of their commitments to providing for their children.

To foster this project, Sisters for Haiti seeks donations of hand tools and heirloom (regenerative) seeds for tomatoes, okra, string beans, legumes and peppers. It is important to supply the Haitians with non-GMO, heirloom seeds that are not sterile, so the women can store seeds from year to year, share seeds with neighbors, and perpetuate a cycle that gives back to families and local communities.
