Equipping the Next Generation of Christ-centered Leaders

A Letter from our President Sept. ’14

Many people have given funds and even traveled on a mission trip to help construct “Ebenezer II”, Mission Possible’s Haitian Creole language church in Barahona, Dominican Republic.  You may recall that much of the construction costs have been provided by Haitian church members.  We are proud they have taken it upon themselves to have “skin in the game”.  There is some North American support, but much of the funding and most of the work has been Haitian / Dominican through this cooperative partnership.

These pictures will give you an idea of the progress on the Ebenezer II Creole church.

Thanks for your support of this ministry.

A Letter from our President Aug. ’14

The following report comes from Pam Macke who led several medical teams to Haiti.

 

“We met Elson at Mission Possible’s Degeance school in February.  He had fallen out of a tree and broken his leg three months before.  The stitches from leg surgery at a Haitian clinic had been left in the entire time.  To continue healing, Elson’s leg needed further medical attention.  His mother could not take him back to the clinic because she did not have the money.  We were able to provide the needed attention.  Elson’s medical situation also brought awareness for the need to educate our Haitian leaders on how to provide basic first-aid care to the students in their communities.

 

“We may sometimes ask ourselves, ‘Are we really making a difference?’  Elson would say, ‘yes!’  Today he is freely walking without his crutches!”

 

Thank you for being a part of Elson’s life.  He is pictured here.

 

Grateful,

 

 

Kurt Bishop, President

A Letter from the President – July ’14

You may be aware that teacher training is somewhat rare in Haiti.  To legally teach in elementary school (up to 6th grade), a teacher does not need to have graduated from high school.  A high school teacher needs only a high school diploma (but no teacher training).  Although many teachers have some formal teacher training beyond high school, it would be rare to encounter a teacher that has a 4-year college degree.

Impact from the Field

Over the past four years I have spent 14 weeks in Haiti with Mission Possible teams. Each year I am amazed by the work that is accomplished. Just like the five loaves and two fish that Jesus multiplied and fed the 5,000 (Luke 3:9), He multiplies our efforts, energy, skills, money, and time…
