The following article was posted on the blog of Dr. Kerry Reeves & New Vision Ministries in Haiti. New Vision is a close partner of Operation HOPE and they are the ministry that we assist when traveling to Haiti.
Operation HOPE recently received a request from our dear friends New Vision Ministries in Haiti to help find two teachers who would be willing to teach at a YWAM English school in Saint Marc for the 2011-2012 school year.
YWAM has been in Saint Marc for 15 years and has been such an asset to that community and the entire nation. The school is primarily focused on educating missionary children (such as the Reeves' children) as well as providing a Bible-Based English education for Haitian children to equip them to reach out to their own people.
Texas Tech Red Raiders senior running back Baron Batch spoke to campers in July at Camp Extreme in Floydada. Batch is an active member in Operation Hope’s A.C.T.S. - Athletics for Christ Teaching and Services - a bible study for college students.
On May 23rd – 29th 14 volunteers, consisting of a team of doctors, nurses and community members, went to Haiti on a medical mission trip.
A view of Port-au-Prince, Haiti from the plane displays the abject poverty in this country.
Operation HOPE's 5th Annual F.A.M.I.N.E. Banquet was held on July 9th at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center with more than 550 guests in attendance. After months of preparation by such an incredible group of volunteers, we are happy to say that this was certainly our biggest and most successful event to date. Thanks to the generous donations from businesses and individuals from across the Lubbock area, we were able to auction off a incredible collection of art, services, and products all to help the work we are currently doing in Haiti and Iraq.
