On April 25th, 2010, Sacred Farms inaugurated the establishment of its first feeding station in Haiti. We are delighted to report that the Lord sent us to serve children in one of the poorest and neediest areas in Haiti, a slum near Port-au-Prince, called La Saline.
La Saline is a shantytown reputed not only for recent acts of violence that made the Haitian Capital a very dangerous city, but also for a long history of poverty, killings (it is home to the old Fort Dimanche) diseases and unrest, as well as being the place where the infamous "mud pies" consumed by the poor are prepared and purchased by the population.
Thanks to the faithful support and contribution of our partners, Sacred Farms is making a difference in the lives of countless children in the area with our new feeding program. Every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, over 150 Children, who might have had to settle for a mud pie for breakfast, enjoy a nutritious and delicious cup of AK-100.
It is important for us to also note that 99.9% of your donation goes directly to the making of the AK-100 to feed the children. Through our partnership with Evangelical Alliance of Haiti, led by Pastor Antoine Rigaud, members of the church in La Saline that hosts our feeding station have volunteered their time to prepare and serve the breakfast. They are supervised by the Pastor of the Church, Rev. Jonick St. Fort who works tirelessly to implement the vision of this ministry. We praise and thank the Lord who truly sent workers out into his harvest!
Advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the foundation of our ministry. It is our commitment at Sacred Farms that in everything that we do, our purpose is to glorify God by demonstrating his love to the world.
We are humbled to report that SFM is advancing the Gospel through every feeding. In fact, the children who visit our feeding station are not only served a cup of AK-100, but they also receive the spiritual nourishment they need, through bible study classes at every feeding event.
The fact that our third feeding day falls on Sunday, our Sabbath day, is truly another miracle to us. We never had such plan. The Lord made it this way, when He allowed the inauguration to occur on a Sunday, and we obeyed. Since then, every Sunday thereafter, over 250 children and adults enjoy a cup AK-100 served at the church, with fresh bread purchased from local bakers. It makes a big difference for people who are often unable to afford a cup of coffee before coming to church, and have no hope of having a meal after church. Pastor St. Fort reported that church attendance has been growing steadily, and more and more are giving their life to our Lord Jesus Christ.
We can already say without reservation that through Sacred Farms, our partners are truly advancing the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
We invite you to continue supporting this ministry. We need your help so this work does not stop. The children are counting on us, and so is God.
The Next Step
We look forward to the day when the first "Sacred" farm (corn field) will be in place. We already see signs that our Lord is leading us into that direction.
Please pray for the Lord to open the way to the third mandate He has given us, namely, to Cultivate the Land while preparing the youth to become the next generation of Haitian Sowers.
Also prayerfully consider what role the Lord will have YOU play in setting up a "sacred farm" in Haiti. Your contribution in any shape or form to that end will be most appreciated by us, and surely be honored by God.
We look forward to hearing from you.
