LOCAL CHURCHES

The ministry of HHH is primarily done through the local church and we presently partner with 13 community churches.  This ministry, other then the typical church activities, is also done in the following manner:

  • Pastor and Youth Conferences - One of the greatest needs requested by our Haitian friends is for Biblical training for their pastors, church leaders and the youth.  Christ Covenant Church of Raleigh, NC has led bi-annual training conferences since 2006
  • Bible camps - Various communities typically have a summer Bible Camp for their youth. Older youth from the Children's Home are selected to lead these camps.
  • Adult Literacy - Many of our churches offer an adult literacy program using the Bible as the reading text. This has helped church members grow spiritually and has been an effective outreach for reaching their communities with the Good News!
  • Elderly Food Assistance - Through collaboration with Rise Against Hunger, our churches distribute packets of food to the elderly. New Revelation Churches prepare food and have special services for the elderly in their communities.
  • Education Assistance - Secondary school youth who serve in their home churches qualify to receive assistance with their school tuition. HHH typically assists students up to 80% of their university tuition.

EMERGENCY RELIEF

Sadly, Haiti has encountered many disasters and our relief efforts are all done through the local churches. As our church communities walk through the disasters with their own families, they also eagerly serve one another.   

  • October 4, 2016 Hurricane Matthew made landfall in southern Haiti. Our churches sent a 15 member team made up of ministry leaders, school directors and skilled carpenters to deliver food, distribute supplies, pick up debris, and reconstruct damaged roofs. Our churches pooled resources to purchase needed supplies to assist their neighbors.
  • January 12, 2010  A 7.0 earthquake hit Haiti, killing nearly 300,000 people. Though our communities experienced only tremors, over 133,000 people were estimated to have moved back to our area from the capital. Haitian and North American churches partnered together, delivering hot meals to the patients and family members in the hospital, filling their prescriptions, providing hygiene items, and offering comfort. Churches rented or constructed homes for families that returned to the area. Schools accepted students who had relocated to the area, and our homes accepted about a dozen children who had lost their parents in the earthquake.  We offered scholarships to 81 relocated young adults to attend classes at our vocational school. We collected medical supplies that were forwarded to another agency for distribution.  
  • September 2008  Hurricanes Hannah and Ike hit our region in the same week. Our churches assisted by immediately distributing cash to over 650 families to purchase basic essentials and food and constructing many homes for families over the next few years.  
  • Spring and Summer 2008  Hunger hit our community due to failed gardens and rising food prices. We purchased a large quantity of rice and our church leaders delivered it to the families most affected in our communities.  
  • September 18, 2004  Hurricane Jeane devasted our area and over 3,000 people perished.  We assisted more than 200 families, sent a medical team and also provided the building supplies needed for 40 families to construct new homes.
