"Praise the Lord, Praise the Lord, O my soul." Psalms 146:1
October 22, 2013 was a beautiful and exciting day for Brother Tom Dorsey, Brother Higgins, and Sister Anita as they left from Charlotte for a 15 day stay in Haiti. Flights were great and the trip from the Haiti airport to the mission house went well. The 30 barrels that were shipped earlier arrived at the mission house on the 25th. Nothing was lost or damaged.
A missionary from Tennessee, Bro. Mike Spence, was at the mission house and immediately stepped in to help get everything sorted, loaded and to the proper destinations. While there, they visited in 4 orphanages, taking food, clothes, shoes, and other supplies. Food and supplies were sent to 2 other orphanages. Several pastors and church congregations, all at the missions house and the many individuals and families that visited were blessed as well.
They visited in homes, praying for the sick and for the many needs and sharing God's word. The highlight of our trip was finally getting to see what God had provided in the Les Cayes Area MISSIONS OF LOVE SCHOOL. Under the leadership and provisions of God, this school was built and furnished in 5 months and is debt free- TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
We do have a few finishing touches to be made. The land was donated by Bro. and Sis. Dupuy (Vilarson's parents). There are 237 students from K-3 through 4th grade enrolled, 8 teachers (all Christians), 3 cooks, 4 workers and a gate keeper. Brother Vilarson Dupuy was installed as Administrator of the school and was ordained as the Shepherd of the flock at the school and in the community. His wife, Mirlene (Baby) was installed as Director of Education. This is a Christian school and the Word of God is being taught. Missions of Love School is the only school in the area and the only school to offer a free education to the children and adults as well. One meal a day is also provided.
We are asking you as an individual, and as God lays it on your heart, to give to help feed these children and workers. This is the only meal a day that the majority of the children get. The feeding program alone is $1500.00 per month and the total budget for all of the expenses is a little over $3000.00.
We ministered in several church services, including one held in the Dupuy home due to lots of rain. Our main goal is to reach souls for Christ.
God has opened a door in the Appalachians of Virginia and West Virginia. We plan to take a 26' UHAUL up on Dec. 12 and stay through Dec. 15 to help sort and give out the goods. If you would like to go, please let us know soon so we can share the expense with you.
We give God the praise for all that was accomplished on this trip. We want to thank every church congregation, every individual, every business and every organization that helps and prays for Missions of Love Ministries.
We are a charity, non-profit, 401 c3 approved ministry. Looking forward to sharing what God has done and what He is doing in Haiti and elsewhere. May God bless you and may you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and a blessed Christmas.
Your Missionaries To Haiti,
Anderson and Anita Higgins
