Mary's Musings

Christmas Addition-December 2015

Merry Christmas!!

As I reflect on Jesus' birth, I think of Jesus, no longer a baby, returning one day soon as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. This brings joy to my heart but also a urgency to spread this good news to all. Our project in Haiti, has been showing Jesus' love by building relationships, meeting daily needs, and planting LOTS of trees for future sustainability.

Year in Review

I am in awe of the accomplishments that were achieved this year. Here is a sampling:

*Built cement block fence around land *Completed tree nursery

*Established group of 50 farmers *Bi-monthly farmers meetings

*Planted 20,000+trees *Hosted community awareness meetings

*Dug a well *Purchased oxen and plow

*Started producing moringa powder *Hosted two teams

*Weekly kid's bible study *Weekly women's bible study

*Daily staff devotions *Provided farmers with tools, seeds, and training

*Employed 5 Haitians *Attended ECHO conference

All of these accomplishments are possible because of your financial support, your prayers and your encouragement. I am truly blessed to be God's hands and feet in Haiti. To say it's challenging is an understatement. I remember the saying that God doesn't call the equipped. He equips the called. 1 Thessalonians 5:24 "He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it." God is faithful and will give me whatever I need to complete the task I have to do, for His glory. Thank you for walking besides me in this journey.
