God's Answers to our Prayers
Children from all over Haiti show up at our gate needing help. Some of them tell us fantastic stories of how they found GLA. We see God's hand in the lives of these children from the very beginning.
In the last year, we have started working with an American adoption service called Bethany Christian Services. Bethany has a special program to find homes for children with special needs. Because of their hard work, we have found homes for many of our children with special needs that have been with us a long time. Now, these children have a chance to develop and become part of a family that will love them for who they are. Our prayers have surely been answered when we started working with Bethany Christian Services.
Even during the worst times in Haiti, our volunteers have been faithful about coming and serving the children. We have all been safe and able to carry on the work of seeing the children well cared for and have all of their needs met. God has watched over all of us at GLA.
God answered all of our prayers when the President of Haiti appointed Mme. Gabrielle Beaudin as the director of IBESR. Mme Beaudin has a large heart for the children of Haiti and is working with all of the orphanages to study the dossiers and give IBESR authorization for the adoptions. We give a big Hallelujah that God answered this prayer!
We raised the $250,000 USD needed to purchase the land for the new building site for the orphanage in less than 4 months. We were overwhelmed even thinking about raising that much money; but, to God it was a small amount in the overall plan for the building fund. Together our prayers and hard work paid off and in the summer of 2007, we will start to build the new orphanage on 4.12 acres located in Fort Jacques, Haiti.
