New home for the Derosier Family

Joseph Derosier is a farmer from the Griffen area of Haiti. He and his wife have been married for 13 years and they have 6 children ranging in age from 3 months to 13 years old.
The families home was badly destroyed as a result of the earthquake and they have been staying in a temporary shelter.  A few weeks ago, a team came from Alabama to help this family in need, to rebuild their home through Baptist Haiti Mission.  Working along side the Haitian workers this team was able to complete the Derosier's new home.
During this building project there were many displays of Christian love.  Madame Derosier was a wonderful hostess and served the group coffee several times through out the week. During the last day, a team member washed Mr. Derosier’s feet as a message of the servanthood of Jesus Christ and the continued servanthood he hopes will be displayed by this Haitian family. When the house was nearly completed, Joseph Derosier was caught with a big smile on his face. He stated, “I am very happy about my new house.” BHM praises God for the fact that we are able to serve this family by helping them to rebuild.
