A message from the Rev. Sam Owen, founder of the New York Haiti Project, with Good News from St. Luke’s School & Church in Martel, Haiti!
Good News from St. Luke’s School & Church in Martel, Haiti! For three years, Christ Church Sunday School has donated their Haiti Fundraiser proceeds to building and starting this school in the little town of Martel, Haiti. Photo is from St. Luke’s School first day in their new building, just last week! The Rev. Sam Owen was there and sent the attached report:
I am eager to share stories with you of our trip to Haiti. Mr. Laurent Louis, a farmer and resident of Martel, told me that many people in Martel believe that we have been sent by God to help them. Perhaps he’s right. I think they have been sent by God to help us.
Thank you to all who kept us in prayer last week. I could feel your support.
I wish you could have been there, to see the joy and hope on the faces of the children as they started their first day of school. Click here to see a clip showing the school in Martel. We hope to put together a short film soon. Stay tuned.
Below is a summary of our trip. For those who want more detail I am attaching a longer version.
Once again, thank you for your support. Your prayers and presence and material support mean more than you know.
The Rev. Sam Owen
