Dear Loved Ones,

 … When he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked Him…  Luke 17: 15-16. (NIV).

 Greeting. Let us introduce you to Mrs. Lumenia and mother of four children. The husband left her with small children. We first came in contact with Lumenia in 1999 when she was a maid for a family on our university campus. 

One day she was sent to deliver something to Kihomi. As women, they engaged in deep sharing. Lumenia opened her heart and poured all her life struggle. While away from her children, those kids were always sick and this situation pained the poor mother. Kihomi continued to pray and to support Lumenia who finally decided to return to her village.

This return was a turning point in Lumenia’s life. She started making a garden to feed her children and gave them much needed love. Their health improved. Even though her struggle continues, she is much better off today as she has learned to struggle with her children.

God has blessed her and those children are now becoming responsible persons. One is a nurse, two are teachers and a fourth one is a third-year agriculture student in a university.  

Lumenia remembered all the advices and the support she received from Kihomi.  Almost 18 years now, she brought her a home raised Turkey.

Thank you for walking along side in this endeavor of helping the helpless of our society.

 Yours in Haiti,

Nzunga & Kihomi


Dear friends,


This journal illustrates much of how missionaries make a difference.  They can do little about overall picture of a country but they do make a difference one person or family at a time.  They have been laboring in Haiti for over 20 years and this is only one of the many they have positively affected with the love of Christ.  I image like Jesus healing the ten of leprosy and only one came back to thank him, they experience the same thing.  However how great is the ones who remember what was done for them and are grateful. 

We are grateful that they can have this impact because you sacrifice your resources that allows them to be there.  Thank You.


Grace and Peace,
