“Change for Change”


 It’s an unforgettable moment when a child or an adult captures the vision of making an eternal difference. 

 “Change for Change” is a fun filled financial challenge where anyone and everyone can save their loose change to help provide necessary school supplies for the NHMI student body of 1,000 children. When school in Haiti begins in October, the money will be used to purchase school books, chalk, chalk boards, drawing tools, meter sticks, and more.  Every school in Haiti is also required to update their learning centers with French dictionaries, encyclopedias, maps of Haiti, globes, and world maps. In a country where over 70% of the population is functionally illiterate, it is vitally important to be committed to a purpose filled Christian based education for our elementary school children bringing about an eternal change in their lives.   

As one church has actively involved their VBS in the “Change for Change” initiative, Pat Polo (lead pastor’s wife) shares her testimony about their involvement:  “Our VBS kids LOVED bringing their change, knowing it would be sent to help children in Haiti.  With power points of the Haiti children, our kids could actually “see” who would be helped and allowed them to capture a vision of ministering to others. One of the highlights of each evening was to see how much was collected!”  (Old Union Christian Union Church, MO)
