The generosity of St. John’s has enabled Pastor Mioche to secure thousands of meals for the people of Haiti! 9,504 packages of fortified rice and beans, where each food package can feed up to 4 children and 2 adults.
“After two days getting stuck on the road, the truck has finally made it to Pignon last weekend from Grand Goave. We just want to send you these pictures and let you know that we have the food in Pignon. We want to thank you for helping with this project. We are preparing a distribution and will update you again later on. Thanks again and may our Father be glorified in all of this.”
Pastor Mioche has presented us with a great opportunity to provide thousands of meals to needy families in Haiti …
Greetings to you dear friend of Christ,
We pray this finds you well and in good spirit. We just wanted to make you aware of a need that we have to transport some food donated to us from Grand Goave, South of Haiti to Pignon. This food will be a great blessing to many students and church families this Summer. We are calling on you because St John has been a great partner with us in the past. You have helped us already with food shipment, purchases of Creole Bibles, raised funds for the Haiti mission trip in 2013 when we started the school in the village of Bouyaha, you have donated backpacks, dresses and lot of school supplies to this ministry. We estimate the shipping cost will be around $700 to get 9,504 packages of fortified rice and beans and some peanut butter also to Pignon. Each food package can feed up to 4 children and 2 adults, depend on how hungry they are. What a blessing to help so many who are struggling this Summer.Thank you again for considering our request and may our Father continue to bless you as you impact more lives for the kingdom. Blessings.
This is a great way to leverage $700. Where else can you make such a difference in the world with just a few dollars? You can donate at St. John’s (designate for Haiti) or by contacting Emilie Lushinsky at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Construction of the Bouyaha school has taken a giant leap forward! The generosity of St. John’s continues to change lives. Funds collected in honor of Pastor Marie’s ministry at St. John’s provided the boost to move the construction of the additional wings forward. It is humbling to see the progress in just a year. It was a year ago when we traveled to Haiti and witnessed the ground breaking. There is much to be thankful for. Please keep this ministry in your thoughts and prayers, as there is much more we can do.

Incredibly thankful to be the beneficiary of these blessings in honor of Pr. Marie ‘s work at St John. We praise God for the progress on the school building this past week and this week and we thank you so much for your support. Enjoy the pictures.
Third week of work on the school building in Bouyaha. Walls for the 4 classrooms almost done and get ready for a new roof. We have the walls of the administrative block half way done. A year ago, you guys started it all. Glory to God and thank you for giving us some big smiles. Have a great week.
Classes begin Sept 2 and the “Friends of Christ” Christian School of Bouyaha will be ready!
Pastor Mioche writes … “One of the big goals for us this summer was to get our three new classrooms ready for school before September 2nd. We are glad to report that we are almost there. We got 40 benches made, tables and other chairs made for the kindergarten classroom. We also bought 3 desks and office chairs for our teachers. We are now putting the final touches along with a new hardboard ceiling to protect against the heat. The parents and children are all excited. We are thankful once again for St John Lutheran Church of Kasson, MN and Pleasant Hill Christian Church of Raymond, IL for their combined efforts in building these classrooms. We still have over 100 hundred students without proper classrooms in a hangar. We are in need to build another set of four classrooms, a principal office and a library/computer lab. We are also praying to establish a clinic in the village to meet the basic health challenges there.”
