“Change for Change”

  “The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.  Your steadfast love, oh Lord, endures forever. 
Do not abandon the work of Your hands.”  Psalm 138:8
Dear Beloved Friends of the Mission:
It’s an unforgettable moment when a child captures the vision of making an eternal difference.
“Change for Change”
What is it?  It’s a fun filled and simple financial challenge whereby loose change is saved during the summer months of July and August to help provide necessary school supplies for the NHMI student body of 900 children.   Note:  In a country where over 70% of the population is functionally illiterate, our commitment to a purpose filled Christian based education is vitally important.
Who does it involve? Kids of all ages … young and old, VBS, Sunday School classes, church families, etc.
How will the money be used in Haiti?  To purchase school books, educational texts, chalk boards, chalk board, drawing tools, meter sticks.  Also, every school in Haiti is required to update their learning centers with French dictionaries, national encyclopedias, maps of Haiti, world globes and world maps.
As one church actively involved their VBS in the “Change for Change” initiative last year, this is the testimony of 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!”
