Dear Loved Ones,

Greetings. This Thursday March 28 is one of those memorable dates in our ministries in Haiti. It was the wedding of Moise Mildride known as Minouche to Mr. Eberne Logis.

Moise Midride is an orphan that has been living with a friend to her deceased mother since she was a small girl. After high school, Moise did not know what to do with her life. She did not have a solid financial support to afford the college studies. We encouraged her to study Business and engaged ourselves to financially support her studies for the four years.

 I had the privilege of teaching three classes to the girl when she was a freshman. Since then we have monitored her progress.

 After her college graduation she needed to find a job. It was not easy in a country with few opportunities. Luckily for her, a job opened at the eye clinic and Moise accepted the position. She has mastered some computer skills and helped the eye clinic with financial administration.

 When the missionaries from Avoca Baptist Church in Indiana came, Moise Mildride was the one who learned how to record patients in the computer.

 On behalf of all those girls we have supported and continue to support, we say to all of you" Mesi Ampil". Thanks a lot.

In Haiti,

Nzunga & Kihomi  



Dear Supporters,

 Missionary work can sometimes seem like lots of work and little reward.  However on occasion you get to see the outcome of you efforts in a meaningful way.  The education of girls is one of the most important things that can be done to improve lives in developing countries.  Here is one story of success.  What wonderful pictures of the start of a Christian marriage. 

 Kihomi laments often that God keeps sending her bright girls and she does not have the resources to help them all.  Did you know that you can put a girl through a year at the University for $1500?  I guarantee that you will get a great return on this investment in the Kingdom where we are supposed to put our treasures.  Mesi Ampil.

In His Grace,
