Operation HOPE and Breedlove Foods, Inc., a Lubbock-based humanitarian relief organization, announce today a collaboration to provide critical food aid for Hurricane Matthew victims in Haiti. We are joining forces in an immediate effort to raise funds to send a 20-foot container including 450,000 servings of Breedlove’s fortified food blends to the Saint-Marc area.
Although I haven't had a great deal of contact with Jarred Minefee since he headed to Haiti 12 days ago, he was able to post a handful of fantastic images online that I would love to share with you. My original intention was to wait until I was able to get more of a story about each of these images, but I realize that many of these are too powerful to be left alone until then. Within the first couple of days, Jarred had the opportunity to be involved in a crusade in Montrouis as well as a beautiful baptism service the next morning.
Operation Hope would like to thank our corporate sponsors that helped make our trip to Haiti a success! Whether it was thru fundraising, gathering donations, selling t-shirts, sorting or whatever, we couldn't of done it without YOU!!!
Our hats go off to Accolade Home Care/Hospice, Aim Bank, Caprock Discount Drug, Covenant, Dupree Elem., 4Him Promotions, Freebirds, Dr.Patricia Arledge, Trinity Church, and UMC.
On May 23rd – 29th 14 volunteers, consisting of a team of doctors, nurses and community members, went to Haiti on a medical mission trip.
A view of Port-au-Prince, Haiti from the plane displays the abject poverty in this country.
The following article was posted on the blog of Dr. Kerry Reeves & New Vision Ministries in Haiti. New Vision is a close partner of Operation HOPE and they are the ministry that we assist when traveling to Haiti.
Operation HOPE recently received a request from our dear friends New Vision Ministries in Haiti to help find two teachers who would be willing to teach at a YWAM English school in Saint Marc for the 2011-2012 school year.
YWAM has been in Saint Marc for 15 years and has been such an asset to that community and the entire nation. The school is primarily focused on educating missionary children (such as the Reeves' children) as well as providing a Bible-Based English education for Haitian children to equip them to reach out to their own people.
Although we generally hear stories of pain and despair coming from Haiti, we were able to see something in the Haitian people that many may not expect - hope.
Operation HOPE is excited to announce that we will be returning to Haiti for a follow-up trip from our previous trips in January and March of this year.
We will be taking a team of 22 to Haiti June 20-26, 2011 consisting of medical, education and community volunteers.
