The Center for Refuge Orphanage, sponsored by Ministry In Mission , has a new well thanks to a grant from the Lutheran Womens League (LWML) Northern Wisconsin District
During a trip to Haiti, in the first part of May,2017, Jackie Rychel of Ministry In Mission (MNM), Rev. Ross Johnson of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) and Rev. Paul Toulotte, Southern District President of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Haiti (ELCH), met with Water for Life in Les Cayes, Haiti. Water for Life is an awesome organization whose headquarters are in Kalona IA. They provide well drilling throughout Haiti LCMS Disaster Response used their services to drill many wells after Hurricane Matthew.
The LWML Northern Wisconsin District grant provided enough money for two wells. Rev. Marky Kessa Southeast District President of the ELCH and also Mayor of Jacmel Haiti designated the second site in the Jacmel Haiti area that was in need of clean water.
The pictures below were taken during the May 2017 meeting with Water for Life where MNM contracted for the well to be placed at the Center for Refuge Orphanage. The actual well digging photos were sent to MNM by Roussemie Lucien, the administrator of the orphanage.
