Friends of Mission Haiti:

We are sending this newsletter to inform our ministry partners that Pam has made the difficult decision to step down as Mission Haiti's CEO and resign from the board of directors.

Pam started Mission Haiti from scratch. She has lived in Haiti off-and-on for 20 years. We all have unbelievable respect for the work that she has done. There is no such thing as replacing someone like Pam. We will however continue as a ministry. As a matter of fact, the board and staff of Mission Haiti feel called by God to build and expand upon the work that Pam has started. The board of directors has expressed tremendous support for the missionaries that are on the ground here in Haiti and for the staff and youth of the mission. 

With Pam’s departure, I, Tim Mulder, have been named the Executive Director of Mission Haiti (America) and Paul Perissien has been named the Executive Director in Haiti. We have an unbelievable leadership team in Haiti consisting of Lubin Dorsaivil (Evangelism), Gertrude Chery (Orphanage), and Renald Boursiquot (Construction and Transportation). All have expressed their support and continued service with the mission. 

Pam always says there is no such thing as Mission Haiti without the work and support of our volunteers and donors. You are an important part of that team and we hope that you will continue to support Mission Haiti. 

Please help us wish Pam all the best. We will miss her very much. 

Thank you and God bless,
Tim Mulder

Child Sponsorship

Child sponsorship is moving forward in full force. Over 2,000 students sponsored. Wow!

Our individual sponsorship provides children with an education, school supplies, deworming and for many the only meal they will get for the day. 

Interested in sponsoring a child or know someone who might be? We cannot do this without support from generous folks like you.
