Yet another full school bus has been delivered to Monarch Shipping in FL at 9:15am this morning by Mark Gillette- for shipment to St. Marc, Haiti full of donated clothes, food and medical equipment.
Thank you to so many who donated time, money, and supplies to fill the bus this year!
Thank you to Kidz Corner in Brookfield, PA for many many summer clothes and shoes they set aside for the children in Haiti.
Thank you to UMCOR warehouse (a Methodist denomination relief center located in Mechanicsburg, PA) for several pallets worth of essential supplies.
Thank you to CMTS (Christian Missions Technical Support) for all the necessary paperwork, including registration, title, bill of sale and insurance.
Florida next week and delivered to Monarch Shipping for overseas transport to St Marc, Haiti.
Thank you to friends at Genoa Baptist Church in OH as well as many other donors for making the $7,000+ in expenses for this project possible! We hope to be able to sell or rent the bus once it is in country to cover it’s own costs and become an ongoing sustainable income for Daniel Jean and his family at “Divine Ministries”. TeamOne:27 has sent over a dozen vehicles to Haiti for this purpose over the past 6 years.
The Team from West Lawn (PA) United Methodist Church is serving in Haiti this week. One of the highlights was getting new bowls for the kids’ mealtimes. ”We went to a local factory today and but 120 enameled bowls for only $140 USD. Incredible! They should serve meals to the kids here for many years”. [Mark Gillette]
Here is an adorable video of the kids singing “Happy Birthday” to their “Daddy” Daniel Jean… caretaker to approximately 200 orphans!
Here is the new roof in our Les Cayes property where we are partnering with Daniel Jean to prepare a compound to care for orphans in the region with a guest house for the many helpers that come through. The second and third video shows a solar powered water treatment system that has been offered for our work and the site where we are planning to install it when funds are available.
Here are some videos narrated by Mark Gillette of the medical clinics hosted by our friend and fellow traveler Susan in Haiti late last month. What started as a basic checkup for our own children in Daniel Jean’s care, quickly swelled to include a local orphanage in Port Au Prince and ‘everyone’ in the neighborhood of our Les Cayes facility.
