Announcing Food for Life Haiti Initiative
October 11, 2013
Cast your nets with me. Invest in the future of Haiti.
We’ve been working with our missionaries in Haiti, Bobby & Sherry, for years. You know about the amazing things we’ve seen accomplished with your help and support. In just a couple of weeks, we will be dedicating the 30,000 square feet Kingdom Connection Food Distribution Center they were able to complete thanks to our partners like you.
But we want to do more than feed them. We want to give them a chance to feed themselves. We want to do more than fill their hunger. We want to fill their future. We want to give them Food For Life.
We’re going to help build a 20-acre marketplace called Mache Mirak, which means “Miracle Market”. This marketplace will cost more than $1,000,000 and is truly a miracle, as it will provide an estimated 2,400 jobs in a country that has 85% unemployment. More than 600 Haitian owned and operated businesses will be able to flourish in this safe, clean environment. Their future, the future of their children, of their country, depends on their ability to build a sustainable economy. And, with God’s grace, we’re going to help them establish that.
The day we met with Bobby and Sherry to view the blueprints for this project, a man I had just met days before walked in with a check for $100,000. He said, “Now you only need $900,000”. I believe God wants to rain fish in Haiti. He wants to show up where they least expect it with a harvest. That’s why we’re casting our nets. I know this commitment may sound crazy to some people but when God speaks and says, “launch out into the deep and cast your nets”; they’re not going to come up empty.
Invest in the future of Haiti. Let’s not just give them fish, let’s teach them to fish and help them build a sustainable economy. It would only take 1000 people to give $1000 to fully fund this project. Maybe you’re one of those. Or maybe your not, but you want to do what you can to see the landscape of a nation changed. Invest in something bigger than you can do on your own. Cast your nets with me. Invest in the future of Haiti.
