Sponsor a child in Haiti!

Sponsor a child in Haiti:

We have recently received photos of children who require sponsorship in Haiti.   To view the children's photos please visit Mission International's sponsorship site where you will see all of the kids from our projects in various parts of the world who require a sponsor.   You will also see details of other projects which might be of interest.

The Project:
Haiti's capital Port au Prince and the surrounding districts have recently been destroyed by a very powerful earthquake leaving the nation reeling.   As a result there have been many orpahned children adding to the many there before due to previous tropical storms and the like.  Mission International's partners in Haiti, led by pastor Rolex Poisson, is working hard amongst the kind of children we want to help and has requested Mission International to assist with sponsorship and projects in order to help them.

Can you help?
Haiti needs help across the baord.   Mission International is not an aid agency and so cannot intervene in the rescue and clean-up after the earthquake, however we have a role to play in the support of the poor.   With your help we can make sure that children who are in need are given the kind of care and support that will allow them to grow up feeling loved and cared for.

To support the children of Haiti please use the giving options on the right hand column of this page.   Your help no matter how much can make a difference where it matters.

News from Haiti:

Good News from Haiti!
Today (Sunday 17th January 2010) we heard news that Pastor Rolex in Haiti is fine and well.   We are now in communication with him to discuss what we can do to help in the process of rebuilding his precious country.   Mission International will be gathering support to help support orphaned children, put in place income generating projects for affected families and to take steps to support those who are in need in all sorts of ways.

Please help us help them!
If you can help in any way it will be so much appreciated by those who are in great need.   The big disaster relief organisations will do their work of dealing with the aftermath of the earthquake but Mission International has also a role to play in the longer term helping in the rebuilding process.   If you can financially support this effort in any way at all please send your support to us using the options on the right hand column of this page.

More News!
We will post further news here when we have it, in the mean time please pray for the people of Haiti, in particular for the churches, many of whom are very poor and dont have the resources to respond to the many who are in need.

The Hope Centre kids had a very special Christmas this year.   The sponsors from the UK donated a pot of money which was to provide a Christmas party for the children in the centre.   Pastor Leonard however saw that many children in the surrounding homes are so poor that they were going to miss out on Christmas while the Hope Centre kids were having a party.   It was agreed that an invitation would be extended to some of the poorest children to come along to the Hope Centre Christmas party, in the end 114 children attended in total, 72 village children came along and of course the Hope Centre kids too.   Everyone had a wonderful day, a very special Christmas Day indeed.

The Month of 'Movember' has been added to the fund-raising calendar, well, at least for 2009 since in Movember 2009 a charity fund-raiser was organised by friends of David Henderson to raise some support for the work of Mission International, the group of lads (for obvious reasons) grew facial hair below their noses in keeping with the international fund-raising events (see the following link)   In all the group raised £75 which will be used to support the poor in the developing world.

Movember Madmen!

The Three Moustache-eers pictured above were responsible for zany fund-raising escapades around the city of Edinburgh where they live and work.   Thanks to the lads and to those who sponsored them.

Your sponsored event:
If you would like to do a sponsored event for Mission international, please get in touch with us so we can provide you with what you need.

Seasons Greetings from Mission International

The message of Christmas:
The work that Mission International carries out amongst the world's poorest people in never so much brought into focus than it is at this time of year.   The Christmas message, of a wonderful Saviour who came to earth to reconcile mankind to God and who called men to follow him in serving the world, is still fully true today.   The support we receive from generous hearted people around the country is welcome here in Mission International's office but so much more welcome to those who receive support in terms of a project, or just a meal on Christmas Day.  (Please visit our various projects from this page to see how God has blessed so many during the year, the blogroll is on the right hand column of this page).

Thank you!
We all, volunteers and recipients alike, want to say a huge thank you to those who have selflessly supported those in need, who have gone on a team or who have prayed for us.   We need you to know that what we do would not have been possible had you not joined with us in this way.

May God bless, you for your kindness, hard work and commitment to the work, we pray that this Christmas will be the best ever for you as you experience the Saviour on the Saviour's Day.
