In 2016 First Presbyterian Boone began a partnership with Real Love Ministries in Haiti. During Lent, FPC was challenged to raise at least $5,000 to support the ministry expenses of a ten-person mission team that God calls for the fall of this year.
On March 5, 2017, Michael Sineus, the Executive Director of Real Love Ministries, spoke to us about what God is doing among the Haitian people. We learned of their need for $50,000 to build Real Love Academy, a new school in Lafiteau, Haiti. Michael shared with us that even an unfinished construction project is a symbol of hope for the Haitian’s, because it serves as God’s provision to bring something good into existence. Our efforts this Lenten season will provide them with tangible hope as they continue to pursue and trust in God’s provision of the remaining funds to complete the school.
As of May 1, 2017, we raised: $17,429 ($10,000 to support Real Love Academy and over $5,000 to support our mission team). We collected many hygiene items, various sports equipment, and school supplies that we sent with a team of 12 people from First Presbyterian Church in October 2017.
May God continue to bless the efforts of our small church in Boone, NC so we can have a tremendous impact on His children in Haiti.
The half-constructed building below is supposed to house 155 students Pre-K through 3rd grade. Next year, it will hold even more students as we add 2 more grades. But it can't hold 1 student let alone 155 + until it is finished.
A couple of clicks and some keyboard taps, will have a huge impact...
