Fun with Team

Standard

Last week was an adventure for me. Child Hope had a small team in from California for a “Vin Aprann” Team week.  Which means “Come and Learn”.  I was invited to tag along and really enjoyed some of the new ministries I was able to learn about.

We went to the Apparent Project. They employee many of the local people to work making beads out of cereal boxes, clay and crushed glass.  Each type of bead is very unique and beautiful.  They also have potters who make mugs, vases and other types of dishes.  The type of clay they use is the same type that when hungry the mothers would make clay cookies to fill their and their children’s stomachs.  Much better to be able to use the clay to make things to sell and in turn make money to buy real food for their families.  They have an area of sewing as well. They have a free day care for the children of the workers.Apparent Project

One day we ventured up to Kenscoff and Fermathe. This allowed everyone to see some of the beauty of Haiti.  In Fermathe we stopped and had lunch at the Baptist mission there and looked through their gift shop of handmade Haitian items.

On Wednesday we were able to visit Heartline. This ministry has been here many years and they now focus on pregnant mommas and their babies.  They have a wonderful prenatal and postnatal clinic.  They follow the moms for conception until 6 months after the baby is born to make sure both are thriving.  Wow was I touched by what they do.

    They could sell necklaces in USA and maybe have more money to feed family and children. AMAZIMA sells Uganda ladies necklaces. On Feb 24, 2016 10:39 AM, “Joyfulrices In Haiti” wrote:

  2. Good to hear from you Sharon. Question: From our past inquiries we had talked about our WMU sending funds for a sewing machine. Since your affiliation in Haiti has changed is there still a need for sewing machine? We now have the funds allocated for this but is the need changed since the ministry has changed? Please give some input to this and where now do we send gifts? I know Tommy Wilson has told me to send gifts to our Gambrell Assoc or at least that is what I understood. Praying for us guys as always and hope everything is going well. Love you both, Linda Bishop
