BENEFITING: ASBURY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
Dear Family and Friends,
This Spring, Edmon and I have decided to take the opportunity with our church Asbury UMC to experience firsthand the work of Hearts and Hands for Haiti (HHH). Asbury has formed a partnership with HHH to support the development and homes in the small village of Sous Raille, Haiti. Last Christmas Asbury raised over $110,000 that allowed the school in Sous Raille and 4 additional schools to operate a full year. We’ll be doing the same this Christmas.
On March 26, 2014, Edmon and I will be traveling on the first full Asbury team to observe and participate in the work of HHH in Sous Raille and other areas of Haiti.
Proverbs 14:21 says, “He who despises his neighbor sins, but blessed is he who is kind to the needy.” The Lord calls us to help our brothers and sisters in Christ, and our church has seen a need in the people of Sous Raille.
Hearts and Hands for Haiti is an organization that strives to “In obedience to the words of Christ to love our neighbor as ourselves, we partner with Haitians in the area of Gonaives, Haiti giving care to children and families in need.” You can learn more about HHH by going to their website at www.heartsandhandsforhaiti.org.
We’re sharing this to ask for your financial and prayerful support. We’re seeking prayers for our group and its safety, our ministry, and the people of Sous Raille, Haiti. With this opportunity to share the love of God and experience the hospitality of our Haitian friends comes to an estimated cost of about $3,000.
We appreciate your support and can’t wait to tell you all about how we’ve been
blessed by this experience!
Paula & Edmon
