Many people who have participated on a Men for Missions short-term team to Port-au-Prince, Haiti, have visited the children at the One Mission Society-related Christian school, College Mixte Evangelique de Gressier, and witnessed the poverty-stricken area. In an effort to alleviate the children’s hunger, One Mission Society created a feeding program through the SHEEP ministry in the school to supply one hot meal during each school day. Before these meals were being provided, some of the students were having trouble focusing on learning due to hunger. This school meal may be the only nutrition the student receives for the day.
For just 49 cents a day, a Haitian child can be fed at school each day. College Mixte Evangelique has just over 200 students. It costs approximately $100 per day to feed everyone in the school, which equals about $3,000 for six weeks.
Jesus shares, “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?...“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me’ Matthew 25:37-40.
Your generosity can greatly impact a Haitian child and the community. Would you help us share God’s love to the unreached in Haiti? To give a gift of any amount to the SHEEP feeding program, send your gift along with your next OMS gift, send to One Mission Society * PO Box 1648 * Monument, CO 80132, or give online, using project #408188.
Please pray with us for God’s provision of food for the hungry in Haiti.
