Haiti – Orphanage
The challenges and commitment it takes to have a well run orphanage in Haiti is great! Ray and Bonnie VanSlyke are doing a great job. The cultural differences are a challenge. Cleanliness, consistent discipline, spiritual development and a proper diet are important as these children develop.
Ray & Bonnie VanSlyke
Since the beginning in 2007 Ray and Bonnie have trained a Haitian Staff to care for the kids in a cleanly way, cook good food, discipline adequately, teach spiritual qualities and maintain general order. Their jobs are many as they administrate the work. We have room for 30 kids. Right now we have 30.
Our Haitian house parents Jack and Ramonde
Ricardo at 6 months
Our first child was Ricardo!
Our special child Michael or “Mickey”
Our oldest child who survived the earthquake in Port O Prince is Guiviline.
Our youngest and most recent child Jantzy.
Our 30 children.
These 30 children have a chance to make a great impact in the Haitian society. We desire that they grow into Godly Christians who can impact their families, community and churches. Please pray for the school that meets at the orphanage, the staff that interacts with the kids and Ray and Bonnie.
