 Love- A-Child, Rad Hazelip and has been to a 3 week intensive agriculture seminar at the Love a Child facilities in Fond Parisienne.


 This summer we will be sending him to “ chicken School”as well and are waiting for Rad to give us the dates of the next training.

Eventually we want to start our own chicken farms so this training will be invaluable to the ministry .

He shares his knowledge and works on building the Chapin Living Waters Drip Irrigation gardens and tends to the nursery where our veggies grow from the seeds donated to us by Hope Seeds in Bradenton . 

Richard

Garden Keeper


What can I say about Richard except that he is AMAZING !! When I first met Richard I saw him running to GRAS Li Garden to meet me and when I got my feet dirty he immediately began to wash them with water ! And the whole time he did it, he was smiling. I was so humbled. Wilnot then told me that Richard was responsible for going up the side of the neighboring mountain , cutting the wood down and bringing it to the garden and put the fence up! This was no easy feat and there was no pay. I didn’t even know anyone had done this for us. He just enjoyed being in the garden everyday and helping out .

I knew then that we needed to hire him and he’s been such an asset to our team. He is doing what he loves and getting paid for it so he can now support his wife and 3 children of which I’m the godmother to their little girl Chardeline. 

Madame Elimane

Widow's Helper

Madame Elimane is one of the sweetest women I have ever met. We love having her in our team. She receives a monthly salary plus a $50 monthly stipend ( for food and soap)  for two widows, Madame Concilia and Madame Misilia,  by cooking food 3 times a week, fetching  water at the new well and washing their clothes at the river.


These two elderly widows are completely alone with no family. They've been relying on the help from their neighbors who are just as poor and with families.


 In Haiti there is no government help, no Medicare and nowhere to turn to if you are elderly with no family.  I've seen the two widows Madame Elimane takes care of and they are so grateful with the one of them practically knocking me over from hugging me so much when I saw her this last trip.
