“Love is something you do.” – Bobby Burnette
We thank God for our missionary partners like Keith here in Haiti, who feeds these children and cares for them. They are truly the poorest of the poor. We receive our donated food from Feed My Starving Children and we pay to transport the food from Minnesota to the Love A Child Kingdom Connection Food Distribution Center. This begins with trucking the food to Miami and loading it on to a cargo ship for a 17-day trip to Haiti. The next big obstacle is getting through Haitian customs, which always takes a miracle, and finally transporting it to our Love A Child Kingdom Connection Food Distribution Center. From there, it goes to our villages and schools all over Haiti, our malnutrition clinic, and we also share with 65 other organizations who feed children throughout Haiti. Thank you, partners! God bless you, Bobby and Sherry

The paperwork has just been signed purchasing the land where a new church will be built for Pastor Carmela Gomez in Villa Hermosa. This area is in the La Romana area of the Dominican Republic, and she has been praying for a new church for many years. Wow! This is a spirit-filled praying woman of God! A special thank you to Carlos for all of his hard work, and to David George and his partners for sponsoring this miracle. Blessings, Bobby and Sherry

“Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us…” 2 Corinthians 5:20 – Or as though God was making His appeal through us to the world. Ambassador means the highest-ranking person who represents his or her government/country while living in another country. You are an ambassador of the Lord. You are not of “this world,” and you represent the Kingdom of God to everyone you see, talk to and touch. Bobby and Sherry

Getting food to the poorest of the poor in Haiti is not easy. These families live near the tops of high mountains, sleep huddled together on the ground, walk for miles, and try to grow crops for food. It is difficult for Haitians to grow gardens because of very little rainfall and poor soil conditions. Saint Francis of Assisi said, “Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary use words.” Our “Gospel” is our “love in action.” Bobby and Sherry

We want to thank you for visiting our website because this means you are someone with a heart of compassion for those living in poverty in Haiti. We are Bobby and Sherry Burnette, the founders and directors of Love A Child, Inc. In July 1991, we moved to Haiti as full time missionaries and today, we can say that decision has been the greatest joy of our lives. If you are interested in feeding the hungry, sponsoring a child, building a missions project, or traveling into the “regions beyond” on foot, four-wheel drive, or even by mule or donkey, then this is the mission website for you! We also invite you to visit “Sherry’s Journal,” a cultural diary of life on the mission field of Haiti! God bless you!
