Thank you to all who have been praying for our ongoing project in Haiti! Currently, the leaders in Haiti are preparing to host a large scale summer program for 300+ children. With so many children attending, our prayer is to be able to help cover the cost of an iron vehicle gate to provide safety for all those in attendance. This project will cost between $1,350-$1,550.
If you would like to financially support the building of this gate, you can make a donation through our website at: 4achild.org/donate/

Please join us in praying that each child attending this program would come to a saving knowledge of the Lord! ... See MoreSee Less
