JULY 2017

Children in Haiti are looking forward to attending school this fall. Yet only about half of them will be able to attend. For most, help from you is absolutely necessary for them to be able to continue to attend. School will change their life and open the door to many opportunities to bless their family their parents never had.

Thank you for your continued support. We are finalizing dates of travel to Haiti to register these children for this fall’s school year. Please pray for each student and their family for God to especially touch their life this year. If you have not sponsored your student for next year, please let us know before August 1st so we know how many students our supporters will be able to help. So far we are at 60% of last year’s total.

We recently enjoyed a wonderful time of friendship and collaboration in Grand Rapids, MI as we sat around the table and discussed ideas and plans for working with Vine Evangelical Baptist Church. Pastor Joel St Amour and his wife Marie, Jo and Jim Dick, Evelyn Dick and Associate Pastor Daniel Telfort were all present. Some of the topics of discussion was help for Telfort’s daughter Hadassa. Hadassa is disabled and becoming more difficult to care for. She is 6 years old and still cannot stand, walk or talk. The need for either a generator or solar power at Pastor Daniel’s home was also considered. He has money saved for this but still needs the remaining funds to make the purchase. The Clinic is in need of being fully equipped.  We are also considering how to begin a Christian school that will teach the children well.

If you are in the Goshen, IN area, please come to West Goshen Church of the Brethren for an evening of Spirit Filled Praise and Worship. Betsey Long, a Nashville recording artist, will be leading us into His Presence.

We would love to connect with the supporters of Vine Ministry to renew old friendships and make new ones.

We want to share how Vine Ministry is growing. Would you be available to host us in your church or small group?

Our plans are to travel and be available October 22 through 29.

Please contact me at PO Box 967, Goshen, IN 46527 by August 1 so we can begin finalizing plans.
