Haiti Love and Faith Ministries was incorporated in 1984 by a small group in Kansas. Since that time, people have joined together across the United States in prayer, sponsorships and donations for the God ordained purpose of helping Rev. Joel and Doris Jeune care for orphaned girls. Two houses were soon outgrown. A new 8,800 square foot home was completed in 1991 which can house up to 65 girls. Meeting the expenses in a home of this magnitude is a constant challenge. Each girl needs a place to sleep, good food and water, ways to keep clean, clothing, medical, dental and eye care, and general supervision. Providing each girl with a Christian education is very high on our list of priorities. These needs are met through our sponsorship program.
We encourage the girls, from our Home, who graduate from high school to further their education by attending a trade school or a college. In this way, they will be better equipped to work in Pastor Jeune's ministry or in a vocation that will support them. The Lord has graciously provided the funds necessary for post-secondary education through faithful donors.
After the Earthquake:
The Haiti Love and Faith Girls Home suffered great damage to the buildings. The Guest home on the property completely collapsed, half of the church building also collapsed. The girls are all safe and accounted for, although scared to enter buildings. It has been recently told to us by Dr. Mica that some of the children are getting skin infections and perhaps getting run down.
