BREAKING NEWS: All Americans, including non-emergency Embassy personnel, are ordered to leave Haiti. (July 27, 2023)


To all the donors to Vine Ministry, we say THANK YOU. 

We are generally unable to acknowledge each and every gift at the time it is made; however, each gift to Vine Ministry is received with gratitude and carefully put to use to further the mission work in Haiti. Your gifts, of any size, are put to Kingdom use, blessing the Haitian people through the ministry of Vine Church. Know that each of you is a valued part of this ministry; we appreciate all you do, and the sacrifices you make to support the ministry, and we are blessed by your prayers.

Student Support

Student Support for the 2023-2024 school year has been forwarded to Haiti. Pastor Daniel and others will be registering the children and young people for school, providing them with their funds, and praying for each child. Sometimes a meal is served. In past years staff from the US could travel to assist with the distribution, but that is not currently possible. School Support Day is a big deal as we register each student and try to capture their photo to share with you, while they patiently wait their turn in the line of 200+ students. Pray for the safety of this year’s distribution.

July Church Visit

July 9th I had the privilege of sharing a message at the James Creek COB in James Creek, PA. I was grateful to Pastor Harvey and Kathy Wason for their hospitality. The congregation was open to hearing about Haiti. They have supported both the general fund and students for many years. This year at the conclusion of the service they presented me with a check to cover their regular two school students PLUS enough for two more students. Praise God!!
