A Very Difficult Season

Haiti is in a very difficult season. Inflation is out of control. Hunger is prevalent. Political jockeying is ungovernable. Protests and looting are plenteous. The government has a debt of about $150 million to fuel suppliers that it cannot pay, and fuel has often been impossible to find in the country over this past month. A gallon of gas that sold for about $2.50 in the pumps previously, was selling last week on the streets for upwards of $12 for a partial gallon. People are suffering and the consequences are harshly impacting the youth and children throughout the country. (AP Photo) Many schools have not been able to function yet this school year. We are so grateful that school at

Teaching, Healing, Feeding

MOHI students definitely have a sense of school pride. Early on they are already becoming confident in their knowledge and understanding. Above all, they are learning to trust God in every situation, knowing that He is GOOD and has GOOD plans for their lives. The students are keeping our dentists very busy these days, but they don't seem to mind. They are grateful for the ability to help these youngsters. Hats off once again to Lifeline Christian Missions for sharing their beans with us. We just picked up another 2000 pounds! At a time when so many are suffering in hunger, this gift will help fill many little bellies. Our students in St. Etienne are enjoying the beans, as well as food f

Good News Today

We started out the week in Haiti with a great nutritional boost for our students. Protein sources tend to be expensive and therefore there's often a tendency toward iron deficiency - especially among children. Our annual peanut butter drive enables us to supplement the nutritional intake of our students, as well as clinic patients. Please be a part of the peanut butter drive this month! Jars can be dropped off in Gardner, MA (192 Pearl St.) or Manchester, CT (World Wide Lighthouse Missions, 723 Main St.) If you don't live nearby, we found that Amazon has peanut butter for as little as 12¢ per pound. Order through Amazon Smile, designate your preferred charity as Mission of Hope Internatio

School Days Again

In the midst of a major fuel shortage throughout the country (and the protests that accompany such crisis in Haiti), we had a great turnout for the first week of school. Monday began with a student assembly where the students were introduced to their teachers. Here Professor Ronald is leading his 6th grade class out at the end of the assembly. Each morning begins with a time of singing and prayer, followed by the raising of the Haitian flag. Here are some more pictures from the classrooms. We're grateful for Dr. Kaylah Holland's presence for the beginning of the school year. She's working hard on developing her Kreyol capacity and coordinating next steps for the schools. Dr. Holland has s

God's Provision: Spirit, Soul, & Body

I hope you are enjoying a long, Labor Day weekend! In Haiti it's back to school tomorrow (Sept. 2)! We always feel the last minute crunch as school prepares to open, but this year seems harder than most. Inflation in the country has made it so difficult for parents to obtain the necessary items for the start of school (shoes, socks, hair elastics...). Would you join us in praying for God's provision for these families? We had a great time with our teaching and school administrative staffs this week, as Dr. Kaylah Holland coordinated a Professional Development Seminar for them. Not only did the MOHI staff benefit from this, but even a local judge and the dean of a university in a nearby
