Since the last update we managed to collect about 57 metal
chairs with writing arms on them. 17 of them will go to Pastor St. Luc and our school. The rest of them Donna will be
providing to other schools that need them.
This summer we also received some used fire department equipment. Not pretty, but definitely usable. This will be going to
Pastor St. Luc who will be seeing if he can start the first fire department in the town where our school building is located.
Donna has been holding this stuff until her truck heads down to Florida to make a shipment to Haiti.
She has spent the last several days loading the truck and it will leave for Florida tomorrow, October 1st
, 2013. A big Thanks to everyone that has
helped us get this equipment together and a special thanks to Pastor Donna Raati and Zoe Life Christian Center of Angora for moving it to
where it is needed in Haiti.
We are looking for between 15 and 20 iPads or other e-tablets that are set up for use with cellular
3G Internet access. We actually need 15 and would like to have 5 spares to cover any failures. They should have
good-sized screens and be bright as the sun in Haiti is BRIGHT! If you can help with these, please give a call.
This summer Pastor St. Luc had a speaking tour here in the U.S. and managed to spend some time with my wife and I here
in Minnesota. While he was here, we introduced him to river fishing. Here he has caught his first fish dinner. He
also caught some Walleye Pike for a dinner on another day. It turns out he is not only a natural fisher of men, but a
natural fisher of fish as well. It was nice to see him relax for just a bit because it seems like he works 24/7 on his ministry
|He is providing the use of a new building for
the school in Mirebalais. He continues to be a strong supporter of the project and is our go to for anything that we need. With his help I believe that we can find almost anything over in Haiti.
When necessary, he may even be able to assist in securing a larger
building for use as the school in the future should the school grow and need to expand. We really appreciate his help.
Planning and fund raising continue here in Minnesota. We still hope to be able to open the school in the first half of this year, 2013.
We continue to search for funding sources for the schools setup and operation. We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has
come forward to help move this project forward by providing the use of their facilities, their funding, their skills and time. You are proof that
people still believe that an education is vital to a persons or nations success or failure.
