Lifelines for Haiti
“Merci!” from the Jeans and Josephs of Haiti!
We have received the names and profiles of the families St. Paul’s is helping through the Lifelines for Haiti agricultural program. Back in March, a special offering was collected and matched by the Outreach Committee to support this initiative. We were able to support not one but two families in this program!
The Jeans and Josephs have collectively planted hundreds of trees and crops on their land. To prevent soil erosion that has been prevalent in Haiti, they’ve terraced steep inclines as necessary. Through Lifelines for Haiti, these families are also receiving agricultural training. The agro-forests they’re developing will help to increase the families’ incomes and work towards preventing environmental degradation in Haiti.
As we are actively corresponding with the Jeans and Josephs, we are asking St. Paul’s to submit well wishes, questions, prayers, drawings, or other correspondence to the Outreach Committee. We will pass these along via Lifelines for Haiti so that they will reach the Jeans and Josephs.
Thank you for your generous and continued support!
Crystal McCollough, Outreach Committee Chair
