THE TRUCK IS OUT OF CUSTOMS!!
Our team members, Chris, Bob and Cory joined Pastor Micler the third week of February to help take care of the remaining logistics for getting the well truck out of customs. After waiting for its release for over a year, the well truck is out!!
We created the Hope Campaign to anticipate the ever-changing needs of the Bethesda community. Currently, we are looking for funding to fulfill our goal of drilling two wells by the end of 2018.
Future projects include air strip, food tunnels, infrastructure, clinics, church building, and more. We also have dire medical and clinical needs, and we hope to provide a full-time nurse at Bethesda by the end of the year. Contact us if you’re interested in supporting the Hope Campaign.
30/5 Campaign Update
The need is great. Our goal is simple. When we raise $3,000 a month, we will be able to fully fund the current needs of our Bethesda school. Contact us to find out how you can help us meet our goals.
Pray that we are able to see 2 wells drilled this year “in the name of JESUS!”
Pray that physical water would improve living conditions, but that the Living Water of Christ would change hearts and lives
Pray for Pastor Micler (currently on the ground in Haiti) and Rosiane (working in America)
Pray for Doug Lundeen (missionary and pilot from New Beginnings, serving out of Port au Prince, currently in the US)
Pray for our growing team of supporters who are committed to praying for, giving to, and serving this cause
Pray for funds to come in to provide for a full-time nurse at Bethesda
The well truck has been officially released from customs!!!
Our school is now providing education to 207 students

We have acquired ownership or use of different needed vehicles: –Black pickup truck – For use on La Gonâve –Bulldozer in Anse-à-Galets – Although it needs repairs, we have permission to use it as long as we need it.
Every first Monday at 7:00pm, we meet together to discuss, create and execute plans to continue our mission of being the Hope for Bethesda. Throughout the month, teams meet to discuss fundraising, social media platforms, and to pray.
Looking for an opportunity to volunteer your time and talents? During the window of June 16-30, 2018 we will be taking a team to La Gonâve, Haiti. We will be working on different projects, but most importantly, we are bringing the Hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those in need. Please pray and consider joining us.

I have been going to Trou-Louis, La Gonâve, Haiti since 2007. On my first trip there, I was 12 years old, and I didn’t know what to expect. I just knew that my parents spent a lot of time (practically months) praying and crying about going, so it scared me a little. There was so much that I had yet to learn about God, but I knew there was something important about what needed to be done in Trou-Louis.
That summer, I made many friends. I couldn’t fully understand why my friends didn’t have better shoes with such a harsh ground, or why they had to walk miles to get water. I couldn’t fully understand why they didn’t go to school. But we had a lot in common. We loved to laugh and play games, and I loved them.
I have gone back to Trou-Louis six times since 2007, and each time I went back, one of my friends had had a child and another friend was pregnant. This was because the government fed families depending on how many children they had, and parents would claim their grandchildren as birth children of their own to get more food. One of my friends died from Typhoid Fever. He was such a happy person, always smiling despite the circumstance to which he was born. But a lot of my friends became really active in the church and some of them wanted to pursue their education.
There is a need and God saw those forgotten people up on that mountain – it’s why he sent my parents up there. I can’t wait for the day when the rate of teen pregnancies drastically decrease because food has drastically increased, or for the day that water is ever-abundant. I look towards a day where clinics are readily available and hygiene is so well taught and practiced that Typhoid Fever is no longer a threat. I believe that God sees a day like this in the near future because things are already starting to change. Hope For Bethesda is going to make a difference. We just need to make ourselves accessible to be used by God.
Hope for Bethesda could not continue its mission without the support of people like you!! Please share our story and help to spread the news, and let’s continue working together to make a difference in Trou-Louis, La Gonâve, Haiti. (Pictured here: Pastor Micler and Rosiane Louis – Founders)
