KC people, Thursday, March 7 over the lunch hour, LQVE is partnering up with Kansas City’s premier co-working company, Plexpod, to build some care kits for people in Haiti. If you’ve got travel size soap, shampoo, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, bandaids, and biodegradable plastic bags (no bigger than 3 gallons) let us know! The team will take them down when they go the second week of March.
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!
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...
