The Elder Care Home in Beaudoin Haiti took large steps to becoming a reality in the last two weeks. The missionary team doing work during the final weeks of January 2017, started clearing the banana trees on the land adjacent to the Center of Refuge Orphanage, the site of the new elder care home. The trees will be replanted elsewhere. Pastor Marky Kessa will oversee the construction and boulders were delivered to start the foundation. The Elder care home is one of the first that we know of in Haiti. Thank you Lutheran Women’s Missionary League for you support.
On Friday Feb. 2, 2018, Jeanne Schimmelmann, President of the Ohio District Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, presented a check to Jackie Rychel, President of Ministry In Mission for $50,000 . This represented the first installment of the $100,000 grant from the National Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, for the construction of the elder care home.
