The new healthcare clinic in Belle Anse, Haiti is progressing! MidAmerica Nazarene University is partnering with LQVE, and Heart to Heart, Haiti to make this project happen. Pray for the team of university students who are heading to Haiti this week!
The Story of LQVE is a night of art, worship music, and inspiration with Jonathan Foster and his friends, Wallace and Rachel Fa'agutu. All proceeds from tickets, artwork, and t-shirts will benefit LQVE. If you're in AZ, or in the southwest portion of the country, or really, just anywhere in the Western Hemisphere, put this on your calendar! Tickets at Eventbrite.com.
2018 is going to be a pretty great year for LQVE. We'll continue to support healthcare and education needs in S/E Haiti, and in a brand NEW venture, we're going to be investing in training to help develop ideas for businesses. It's a year-long training session by Haitians for Haitians that will teach entrepreneurial principles and practices. Healthcare, education and wealth creation. We couldn't be more excited about playing a small role in these three crucial areas. You have lots of places you can give as we approach the end of this year, but if you're undecided about who to invest in, consider being a part of the story. We'll need every dollar for 2018! Blessings!
A few years ago, our oldest kid indicated she was feeling like she should prepare to be a medial missionary in a place like Cascade Pichon, Haiti. I thought lots of things, but one of them was, "Ha, I'm going to be spending the rest of my life helping her raise money." We would have been, of course, proud to help her do so.
And then, Jan 1, 2015, happened and she stepped into the heavenly dimension far sooner than any of us imagined. A bunch of very cool opportunites have come our way the last couple of years, but nothing quite like the invitation from my friend Steve Weber at Heart to Heart International who asked if we wanted to support the community of Cascade Pichon by supplying medicines, and hiring a full-time nurse. I thought lots of things, but one of them was, "Ha, I'm going to be spending the rest of my life helping raise money for this."
And so the story goes.
There are lots of places to give these days. Don't stop giving somewhere else, but if you feel led, setup your account at the GIVE section of our Be A Part of the Story page to support the ongoing work LQVE is doing in S/E Haiti. You just never know where life is going to lead...
Trent, Kalyn, Kendriana, Rose, Kara, Marcel, Llamar, Chris, and Cara just got back from the most recent LQVE trip to Haiti! They were there with Shay Foster for a week playing soccer, hacky sack, hanging out with kids, painting, teaching, playing more hacky sack, in the ocean, driving all over S/E Haiti, seeing old friends, making new friends, playing more soccer, teaching nursing skills and more! So much work, and yet they look so happy! Funny how that works.
This is Nurse Maryse. Born, raised, educated in Haiti. LQVE is honored to be partnering with the federation of Cascade Pichon, Haiti, in helping Maryse work full time in S/E Haiti. LQVE started by working on soccer fields, but it didn't take long before we became aware of other needs. After several trips where we served, met with leaders asking questions, and listening, we were presented with the opportunity to play a part in helping solve local healthcare needs. In Sept, 2016, Maryse became the first nurse to work full-time in this remote area of the world. How great is that?
