Our Opiege Ministry Mission Team visited the school March 25-31, 2018 and we can report much progress is being made. Just in the last twelve months the Ministry has been able to share God’s love by providing:
April 1, 2017 – February 28, 1918:
1. School uniforms issued for each child. (Sowing by Sewing Ministry, Haleburg, AL).
2. Textbooks were provided for all students in the school. (2017-18 School Term).
3. A water collection system was installed.
March 2018 including the Mission Trip:
4. 11 boxes of school supplies requested by the teachers was delivered.
5. New desk units each seating 3 children were built.
6. Each student received a gift.
7. Each student was presented a CrossTalk tract which was used to teach the gospel. CrossTalk is an interactive tool provided through Student Discipleship Ministries. Importantly this tool is written in Haitian Kreole.
8. Initial supplies of over the counter pharmacy products to be used for first aid was delivered.
9. 4 duffel bags of clothing for children in need were delivered. (Sowing by Sewing).
April 1, 2018 and going forward:
10. During the March trip the team staked out the corners of the proposed building for the school and church. Team members also met with a contractor in Port-Au-Prince to discuss the building. It is expected remaining funds for the Phase One Budget will be met in the next few weeks. Once the funds are on deposit we will begin the much-needed building.
11. We hope to expand the school lunch program. (Requested by the teachers).
12. We will continue to provide support for the teachers at the school.
13. We hope to build more desk units. We would also like to build work tables for the pre-school children.
14. In addition to the school effort Hope Here International Ministries also works with the church in Opiege by helping provide Bibles and literature needed for evangelism in the village.
All the work completed and provided is due to God’s blessing and provision. He has made it happen through friends such as you.
