Every where we turned, both on the journey to Mapou Village as well as on our trip back to Port au Prince, we saw evidences of the work and ministry of World Vision. Mile after mile there were schools, wells, homes and other aid provided by World Vision.
Our family has loved being a part of the work of World Vision, through our family world vision nights and in our gift-giving. We’ve given aid like chickens, ducks, building supplies, a share of a well, seeds and agricultural training. It is exciting to have a specific need to fill, and I love the way it helps my children understand how to “be Jesus” to the world.
The village of Mapou, where we stayed for eight days, is extremely primitive. Before World Vision came to the village the villagers lived in homes like this.
Four years ago World Vision came to the village and built each family a house.
The villagers of Mapou now use their old homes as kitchens.
It is thrilling to get to see the work of World Vision while I was in Haiti.
It could not be missed.
Here are a few ways you can get involved in the ministry work of World Vision in Haiti:
- Give building supplies
- Give $100 worth of food with $25
- Continued relief and support of those affected by the earthquake
