Summer Time

Summer is officially in full swing here at BHM.  Although we may not be sitting by the poolside with a cold lemonade, we are enjoying every minute of the work the Lord is allowing us to be a part of.

After the January 2010 earthquake one of the missionary homes on the property experienced a great amount of interior damage.  The house needed to be gutted and rebuilt from the inside out.  This has been a large project that has been worked on by several volunteer teams, as well as people on the mission.  Now, more than 2 years later, the house is nearing completion.

BHM would like to send a special thanks to Dan Doerksen and Will Todd for taking two weeks of their summer to build cabinets for the house.  This was Dan’s fifth trip to Haiti serving with us, and Will’s second.  During their stay, Dan was able to reconnect with his sponsored child and family.  We look forward to posting completed house pictures in the future.

It would hardly be summer without summer camp.  BHM's camp ministry is in full gear for the summer!  Crossings Ministries, partners of BHM's camp ministry, have just finished their third week of student camps in Haiti.  Students from the U.S. came and participated in construction projects on the camp property to prepare the grounds for Haitian students this summer.

Their afternoons were spent leading VBS and serving in the community.  There have been SEVERAL first time decisions to follow Christ due to these events.  The gospel message is penetrating throughout the communities of Haiti this summer.

The churches of Haiti have a variety of programs and plans for students in the summer months.  Pray for the leaders of these churches as they seek to engage their communities with the gospel.  Pray for the many children and students who will be a part of these activities all summer long.  Pray for BHM as we desire to assist the churches during this active time.

Students eagerly anticipating a great afternoon of VBS.
