Gonaives, Haiti Team

Buried Alive
A Haitian man lay buried under cement blocks after a house crumbled on top of him during the 2010 earthquake that devastated Port-au-Prince. The man was heavily involved in voodoo. But in the sobering reality of that moment, he called out to Jesus for rescue. After being pulled from the rubble, he announced "I'm done with the things of this world. Now I am a Christian."

Raised to New Life
Haiti has experienced more than its share of hardships, but God has not forgotten its people. He's using MTW to help show His mercy and build His Church through our response to disasters and our long-term commitment to rebuild communities. Since our work in Haiti began, we've helped plant two churches. And we're actively training national leaders through seminary and theology conferences. Near the Docine church, we've started a school for impoverished children. The 250-plus students are finding sponsors through our ONEChild ministry. Near the Gonaives church, plans are underway for The Gonaives Children's Home, a home that will help rebuild the lives of children, many of whom beg for food on the street. God is using disaster and hardship to show His mercy to the Haitian people and to raise them up to new life in Christ.
