Mission: Haiti

More children going to school

JEANTILHOME, Haiti (Oct. 24, 2066) — The number of children attending school in Jeantilhome has grown to 128 in three weeks. “They come from Jeantilhome and the (mountainside) around Jeantilhome,” our Haitian missionary Miguel Guante reported.

Photos below show students learning math. Miguel also is teaching younger students letters of the alphabet and how to spell by having them look at a newspaper, find a letter, and then use scissors to cut it out. “Sometimes they have to find the letter and use the colored pens to make a circle around the letter,” Miguel said.

Climbing For Christ purchased blackboards, notebooks, pencils, pens, and other supplies for this new school, which is held n the church that the Lord brought us to Haiti to build.

School is in Session

JEANTILHOME, Haiti (Oct. 3, 2006) — Miguel Guante, Climbing For Christ's missionary to Haiti, is using his experience as a teacher to plan studies for the teachers who are now working with 92 students in Jeantilhome's first school. Classes are held in the church that the Lord brought Climbing For Christ members to build in this mountain village. There are three classes for the children, who range in age from 5 to 21.

The Word

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you and watch over you.” — Psalm 32:8


Helping Hands

More school supplies are needed, including balls for students to play football (soccer) and volleyball. We also are in the process of building an additional 10 benches (at a cost of $75 per bench for materials and transporting those materials to Jeantilhome).

Some money also is needed to pay the teachers. Would you like to help? Send a tax-deductible donation to Climbing For Christ, Inc., earmarked “Mission: Haiti.” Mail your gift to:

Even more students would attend classes, missionary Miguel Guante said, if they had school clothes. “Many of them still do not come to the school because they have not dress and shoe,” Guante reported on Oct. 10, 2006. If you would like to help these children, please e-mail info@ClimbingForChrist.org and put “Mission: Haiti” in the subject line.
