From Haitian Christian Outreach
As I stood on the side of the mountain in remote SE Haiti, there was an excitement in the air. School had just started and over 500 kids packed themselves into their seats in our school in Seguin. Excitement over a new school year is always fun! For me, the day was made even better knowing that these children would receive a hot meal made possible by the IDES HOT grant that we received from IDES! As food was distributed to the kids, the smiles were enough to crush any person's heart!
The IDES HOT grant has not only been tremendous to our 2,000 students in our 6 schools in SE Haiti. The grant has also allowed us to be the hands and feet of Christ in Peredo and surrounding communities throughout the summer by providing food for the VBS programs that have packed over 300 kids into our tiny church building. Many of these kids have never heard the Gospel and definitely don't get a meal every day of the week! The HOT grant has helped us reach out in the name of Christ to hungry and hurting kids throughout SE Haiti.
Thank you, IDES!
