Senior 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 on June 2, 2014 we had our first two widows arrive to be in the home. The next day another lady arrived. All three were chosen by Paul Romeus and the leaders of the Limbe church because of their situation. The Bible tells us that we need to care for true widows, or those who have no children or family left. All of these ladies qualify. Since then we have added another 5 residents. One lady passed away in December 2015.

It is great to see them sitting, visiting and enjoying the new comforts around them. The had their first shower and were heard laughing and talking. With 3 good meals a day we hope they will be provided for in a way they are not used to. Devotions are held every morning which has included the gospel. Several have come to salvation through Jesus Christ. One man, Mondesi was brought from the “poor house” where he was near death. Today he is very happy and thankful to be in the home. He has also believed in Jesus.

We have 20 beds. We will start out slowly and move up as we gain perspective on how this will work. The Haitian staff, lead by Durat Jacquelyn, is handling things very well and things are clean and neat. Jason and Nikki Nebola helped start the home and trained Jacquelyn. He is very trustworthy with finances and has proven to have a heart for the Seniors.

Recently the property has added, chickens, vegetable garden, fruit trees, goats and a new shaded sitting area. It is a beautiful place and we thank God for what He has done.

Your prayers for this ministry are needed as follows:
1. Jacquelyn and Edmond as they lead the ministry.
2. The people that God would want to have in the home.
3. Adjustment and learning to take care of these people from another culture.
4. Donors for 9 more Seniors for the future.
