The House That Love Built

May 22 2014

Editor's note: This is based on the Mother Goose nursery rhyme entitled "This is the House That Jack Built."

Bon Repos means “Good Rest” in Creole. This is an ongoing project for Men for Missions. Teams from all over the world are helping to build 30 homes for the poorest of the poor in Haiti. However, the Homes for Haiti project is more than just building homes, it is sharing the love of Jesus with the Haitian people who help with construction. It is a love for Jesus that compels Men for Missions to mobilize teams of laypersons to go to Haiti and turn lumber and concrete into homes built with love.

Carl Poynter, a regional director for Men for Missions, recently returned from Haiti. In his recent prayer letter to supporters he said, “As we shared morning devotionals with the Haitian crew we worked with, two men made a decision to accept Christ into their hearts; this was the greatest blessing of our trip.”

Are you looking for an opportunity to use your hands and heart to build a house with love for the poorest of the poor in Haiti?
