Vine Church in Haiti is preparing for their 30th celebration!

We rejoice over new believers in Haiti. God is always moving.

Difficulties and Challenges abound in Haiti. But God - Is Present

Thank you for praying for Haiti - letter from Pastor Daniel Telfort

Merry Christmas! Vine Church is set to begin a New Year!

Special Zoom call coming up in January. Although Haiti is struggling, the church remains strong.

Three things to be grateful for in Haiti: School begins, Earthquake relief, and Clinic expansion.

Vine Church reaches out to family members suffering from the earthquake in southern peninsula of Haiti. Students will return to school for 2021-2022 school year.

Haiti continues to need prayer.
Please let us know when you want us to come and share with your group.

We love to hear from you. I have made it easy by providing a simple two minute survey.

This month we would like to feature a dear woman who has been a support to us since the beginning of Vine Ministry. Nora Garber Richy has a heart for people who aren’t blessed as we are.

Her passion to help those in Haiti was first stirred when she heard from LeRoy and her cousin Evelyn about their ministry calling. She could trust Vine Ministry that what she was told was happening was true.

Thanksgiving may be the most profound holiday we celebrate. On Thanksgiving Day, we remember and celebrate that which has been key to bringing blessing into our lives and those around us. That key is a thankful heart.

Greetings friends from Haiti. We arrived in Port-au-Prince last Wednesday, August 21. Our car was very full since we brought in 4 full suitcases of medical supplies for the Clinic. We must have looked unusual with the back of our car filled to the top with luggage. We were stopped by the local police twice on the way to our hotel. They were pleasant, checked out registration and license, then sent us on our way.

Vine Ministry Newsletter ǀ AUGUST 2019

Pastor Daniel sat down with me and shared why it is so important for kids to be going to school in Haiti. If you are new to sending kids to school in Haiti, this will be very informative.

The deadline for Student Support is August 1st and quickly arriving. Last year we supported 200 students. This year I would like to be able to send 220 students to school. Our graph (on the right) is growing slowly. So far, we have 130 students supported. On August 21 we will be leaving for Haiti. Please sponsor a child before it is too late. We want to be prepared in advance for the kids.

I wanted to tell you about one of our students. His name is Mozart. Since 2004 Mozart has been supported by friends of Vine Ministry. He was in 2nd grade and 9 years old at the time. Not every student begins school at age 6 as we would expect in the States.

Daphly is in her third year of nursing school at University of Notre Dame of Haiti.

MAY 2019

Last year we made an effort to bring change by sponsoring over 200 children to go to school.
Each year a child returns to Vine Church for registration. Learning comes easy to some. To others not so easy. In every case, we are partnering with them for a better future.
Don't let this opportunity go by without giving a small gift that will reap life-long

One of the most common disease encountered at the Haiti Clinic is infection. Recently a patient came to the Clinic and was diagnosed with a lung infection. Quickly, the staff transferred this patient to a specialized center to treat this type of infection. The doctors continue to follow up insuring the patient is continuing with treatment.

Vine Ministry Newsletter ǀ March 2019

Happy New Year to you all as we look to a bright future in Haiti. 2019 is brimming with the possibility of greater impact in this cherished country. In 2018 Haiti has experienced more political turmoil than it has in many years. This could be an opportunity to worry and fear about the future or (and I would lean more toward this “OR”) it is an indication that Haiti is ready for greater break through to becoming the prosperous and elegant island that God has always intended it to be.

From Vine Ministry to you, your family and friends a Very Merry Christmas and an exciting New Year, full of promise, blessing and rich abundance. Whether you are young or old, experienced or just starting out may the Peace that passes understanding cover you and live in you this Christmas season and New Year.

Thanksgiving is a time of thoughtful reflection and giving thanks for everything God has done this last year. Looking back over 2018 there are many things for which we are grateful, especially two.

The first being the purchase and installation of an amazing Sonogram machine. Along with this medical equipment was the critical training of the doctors at the Clinic to use this machine in their practice.

Within the last year, a very talented Haitian dentist, Dr. Noel, has established her office at the LeRoy Dick Clinic. Tools and materials are not easy to purchase in Haiti and often Dr. Noel must travel outside the country to keep her dental office supplied. A local retired dentist, Dr. Russell Gilliom, has taken a deep interest in her work. Dr. Gilliom asked her what she needed. He and friends of Blue River Church of the Brethren purchased most of what she asked for. I was able to take these with me to Haiti on my last trip in August.

Another record-breaking year registering students for the school. The first day we processed over 90 children. Myself, Tim (my son), Gislene, and Mirjo all worked together.

I am encouraged seeing the partnership between you and the families of Vine Church changing lives through education.

It was exciting last year as we entered these four children into our program.

It was the first time the Clervil children were supported through the gracious giving of our friends of Vine Ministry. We can’t thank you enough.

I am so excited to be flying to Haiti in a few weeks! The best part of my job is to be the delivery person between you and these wonderful families as you make school possible for their children.
