Crawl, Walk, Run

Posted by Maria Douglas on

We started our partnership with Pastor Tingue and Breadfruit Creations 3.5 years ago, in conjunction with our ReachGlobal missionaries in Haiti. It was centered around his vision to reach out to women in his community and build skills in the areas of sewing and crochet in order that these women...

But God....

Posted by Maria Douglas on

The last two days have been full!  On Monday, the men on our team went to our GlobalFingerprints site in Jean Jean.  My husband Jeff was able to meet with the girl we sponsor which was a meaningful experience.  The men were supposed to visit our partners at STEP Seminary in Port...

In Times of Trouble

Posted by Maria Douglas on

Our team of 6 arrived here in Haiti on Friday, Jan 18.  It was a different experience to drive through Port Au Prince in the dark with tons of traffic; on foot, car, bus, tap tap (public transport) and motorcycle.  We left MN at 5 am and arrived at the Haitian Queen guesthouse in...

Thanksgiving

Posted by Maria Douglas on

We opened our sessions with the crochet and sewing students with prayers of thanksgiving shared in the group. And, indeed, this week we have much to be thankful for! We ended the day with all of our pompom kits completed and a majority of the crocheted hats as well. All of the remaining crochet...

We Lift His Name on High

Posted by Maria Douglas on

We opened up our morning session with the sewing and crochet students in prayer and asked for personal prayer requests. What a sweet time of communion as we both prayed for each others' needs. Then we sang "Lord We Lift Your Name On High" as we did our Prayer in Motion routine. It was so...

A Little Piece of Heaven

Posted by Maria Douglas on

Today was encouraging, with a bit of discouragement thrown in. On the encouraging side, many of our crocheters came back with completed hats! That is the true mark of learning; when students can perform without the teacher looking over their shoulder. One of the ladies, Madame Suze, was so...

Sing a New Song

Posted by Maria Douglas on

Our team attended Pastor Tingue's church this morning and were we in for a treat! It was International Children's Day and the church was decked out with red and yellow decorations including balloons, fancy red curtains and chair covers with red bows. All of the kids were dressed alike based on...

Hallowed Be Thy Name

Posted by Maria Douglas on

Yesterday our small but mighty team of 4 (Bonnie, Cyd, Julie, and Maria) arrived in Haiti in an uneventful manner, which is just the way we like it!  Today, we taught the crochet students to make a new product – a Tunisian crochet hat. They learned new stitches and skills and most...

Hospitality

Posted by Maria Douglas on

Our team visited the village of Jan Jan where we have Global Fingerprints child sponsorship. The trip included a ride through a dry river bed amidst lovely scenery of mountains and lush greenery. Dave Matthis from ReachGlobal once referred to this place as "the land that time forgot". My husband...

Vision

Posted by Maria Douglas on

Our team has been very busy so haven't posted the past few days. On Thursday, many women at the sewing school finished their second "for sale" bags and beamed with pride as we praised them and took their photos. The smiles were priceless. This week has been such an encouragement to us since past...
