A Big Thank You!! to Jeff and Becky

Categories:

On July 15th we took the Peters to the airport. After completing their two year commitment we were sad to see them go. It was Jeff and Becky who had expressed from day one that they didn’t think we (the Brouwers) should try to go alone, and after two years of working together in Haiti we can say with absolute certainty that they were right. They weathered a lot of transitions with our organization and our family, from the end of our involvement in the orphanage to the addition of Moses to our family.  They will be missed, the kids will miss their teacher and we will miss their wisdom and the countless ways they served. Yet, we look forward to seeing how God uses them as they go home to the States.  No one comes to Haiti and leaves the same, especially after living here. We are confident that God in His wisdom has plans to continue using this period in their lives and the heart for Haiti, its people and its challenges that have been formed during their time here. We also look forward to seeing them again as they promise to visit and as Jeff has agreed to join Hope’s board.

Jeff and Becky had the following to say about their time in Haiti and their ongoing involvement,

We think about four years ago when this ‘adventure’ really began, and we are reminded of the role so many of you played in getting us to Haiti and supporting us. You have encouraged us in so many ways. Thank you for your prayers, emails, excitement, and financial support. Thank you for allowing us the privilege of being a part of this great adventure! Even though our time living in Haiti over, our commitment to Haiti and HOPE Community Project is not. We ask that you prayerfully consider joining us as we continue to support this important work financially, prayerfully, and by volunteering when needs arise.

God bless you both and thank you for everything from the Brouwers and Hope Community Project.

Urgent Appeal for Your Help-UPDATE: Donors Will Match!

Categories:

UPDATE: Several donors have offered to match donations to help us meet our urgent need goal. Dollar for dollar. So far many of you have helped us raise $7,198 toward our goal of $20,000. Thank you! That means we only need $6,400 more to reach our goal. If you have been thinking about giving, now your gift will be doubled. Please consider a donation of any amount and share this with family, friends, and co-workers.

Friends of HOPE, we urgently need your help. As our ministry to children and families in Haiti has grown, our costs have grown.

But our giving has not. We are thankful for those who regularly donate, but right now we find ourselves in a cash crunch crisis due to some unexpected expenses.

We are asking each of you to consider a one-time gift to HOPE. Some of you can give $50 or $100. Others of you can give $500 or $1,000, or more.

Whatever you can do, we will be grateful.

We have even set up a bare bones donation site for this urgent need (it’s free of course) to make your donation experience quick and easy. You can also mail a check. The address is: HOPE, 135 West Adams Ave., Kirkwood, MO 63122.

DONATE ONLINE AT donatetohope.org

Our ministry in Haiti is thriving and growing, kids are going to school, jobs are being created, the clinic has served over 2400 people! Lives are being changed- We don’t want to have to cut back our ministry, but we may have no alternative. Will you help us?

Thank you for your consideration.
