2017–2019 Mission Grant: Christian Eldercare Home in Haiti — Ministry in Mission; $100,000 fully paid

nullLook at what’s happening in Jacmel, Haiti! Construction is underway for this home for the elderly!  The foundation is complete can “settle before the rainy/hurricane season.” The home will be completed by the end of 2018 or beginning of 2019.  Mission teams are scheduled to build the walls: Shepherd of the Hills from Appleton, WI is to help in April; teams from Concordia Seward, the Iowa West and Ohio Districts in May; and teams from Kent State University, Lutheran Campus Ministry, and other Ohio churches in July.

LWML Ohio District President Jeanne Schimmelmann, LWML Ohio District President, is presenting a check for $50,000 to Jackie Rychel, Founder and Grant Administrator of grant #10, Christian Eldercare Home in Jacmel, Haiti.  Jeanne shared, "It was such an honor to present this check to Ministry in Mission. After hearing Jackie and the others speak about the lack of services and assistance for the elderly in Haiti, I knew this money was certainly going to have a tremendous impact on improving the lives of those elderly people. Ministry in Mission is certainly reaching out to the lost and forgotten and sharing God's love with them." 

Jaclyn, Grant Administrator for Christian Eldercare Home in Haiti, says she’s working with other Recognized Service Organization partners for help to train the Haitians in Eldercare, help in collecting and shipping of furnishing for the elderly, and with other groups that would donate bedding, blankets, and other humanitarian supplies.

Thank you for making possible a safe, caring, and healthy home for those elderly Haitians that have out-lived their families where they can have clean water, beds, food, and care while also being fed nourished with the Gospel.
