Haiti Testimonies

Since February we have been looking at the book of Acts, and the theme has been "Send Me." My prayer for this series has been that it would awaken within each of us a desire to live out the great commission here and around the world. That we would see that we have a role to play in the expansion of God's kingdom as a church and also as individuals.

Acts 1:8

8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

James 1:27

Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Our Mission

We were able to work alongside David Wine at his orphanage in Bon Repose, Haiti. Haiti has been devastated by natural disasters and as a result has a high percentage of orphans. David's mission is to raise these children in a Godly environment, and through them to positively impact this beautiful island nation. Here it is in his own words.

Our Mission Statement

We believe hope starts with Jesus.

Our mission is to improve lives through Christian growth, humanitarian aid, and educational resources and assistance. We believe that help starts within the heart by accepting Christ. We believe that no one should be hungry, without clothing or shoes. We believe all should have the opportunity to read and write.

David has been working to fulfill that mission since 2013 when he started with just a couple of boys. He now has 32 sons and 17 daughters, and hopes to be able to open a special needs home soon. You can learn more by going to www.blackandwhiteforjesusministries.org/
