One challenge as a ministry is the weeks in between trips. Needs outside of those financed by sponsorships and designated giving arise on a regular basis. There are recurring expenses such as supplies for the mission house (sheets, towels, light bulbs, cleaning supplies, internet access, fuel for the generator) and vehicle expenses (fuel, maintenance, tags). There are also medical expenses especially with the children at Bon Repos, costs for gifts and parties at Christmas and for other occasions for the children at Guitton and Bon Repos, and continuous requests for special help feeding children, providing emergency relief and supporting the ministry of the local churches. Because of these needs, the financial burden of keeping the ministry moving forward is always a challenge. This holiday season we are asking our friends to consider a one-time gift to help bridge the gap from trip to trip so that we can continue to minister to the people of Haiti throughout the year.
Our goal this Christmas is $100,000. This is a lot of money for any one person or organization to give, but if every person who has been blessed by the Haitian people would give $100 to $1000 we would far surpass our goal and be in a position to look at additional facilities for Cepres, Kamitan or Royal and even be prepared for the doors that God has yet to open.
You can make a gift online at www.smihaiti.org or you can mail a check to SMI Haiti, 8327 Haggard Ct., Martinsville, IN 46151.
We also are offering an opportunity to share the vision of SMI with your friends and family who might invest in the ministry. If you would be interested in hosting a dessert fundraiser in your home please email us at email@example.com for more information.
Please prayerfully consider partnering with us as we continue to share the good news of Jesus.
