Elderly Care Home – Haiti
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father, to visit orphans and widows in their distress…. James 1:27
We began construction of the Elderly Care home in September of 2011 and are now nearly two thirds complete. This home will provide a place for senior citizens who have no one to care for them. There is a great need for this. The medical team meets many people like this and are enthusiastic about completing this home and having a place for these very poor people to live the last days of their lives on this earth. It will also give an opportunity for the gospel to be presented during these days.
A container with the beds and final supplies should be going to Haiti in March. The next step is to begin to raise funds for caring for these poor elderly people. We are looking for those interested in “adopting” a specific person and supporting them with $50 per month. We know that the costs may be more than this so we will need to have two persons supporting one elderly person. We have 20 beds. We will start out slowly and move up as we gain perspective on how this will work. There is much to consider and your prayers are needed.
Your prayers for starting this ministry are needed as follows:
1. Completion of the building. Final funds to finish the building could be $5,000.
2. Haitian staff that have a heart of mercy and are faithful and teachable.
3. Donors to help support an elderly person once it is established.
This is the latest picture of the construction.
