A Haitian Creole Proverb says, “Those who share their food never eat alone.” When you and I share our food with hungry children like these, the Lord will make sure that you and I will always be blessed and we will never go hungry. Look at these precious little children with their full plates of food! Thank you, friends and partners, for “sharing your food!” Sherry
P.S. These sweet children are being cared for by our friend Judy Hangels. We share our food with them each month.

Baby Elijah, who was abandoned at our front gate four months ago, was suffering with very severe malnutrition. He later developed meningitis and a hydrocephalic head. In this photo, he is being loved and cared for by our oldest Love A Child children to help stimulate him. We are waiting to see if his new seizure medicine is helping any more than the previous one. He is very fragile. Sherry

Today we welcome Jesse Ostrander and two men from Pastor Mark Ostrander’s The Mission Church. They have come to work on the Grand Miracle Market and have a very long “to-do” list. Robert de Vries and our Haitian workers will be working very hard with Jesse and the others this week. Metro Management is doing a great job preparing the Grand Miracle Market for all the vendors to sell their products. Love is something you do! Bobby

“Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. Say not unto thy neighbor, Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.” Proverbs 3:27-28 – I woke up at 3 AM this morning with this scripture burning within my heart. I know that I am supposed to share this Word with you on this Monday morning. Bobby

Franky is the little Haitian boy in the middle. His mother died from a reaction to a bee sting, and his father died of a knife wound. Franky would have died too, had some friends of ours at Mephibosheth House, with whom we share our food, not rescued him. Now, he is eating the food that you help sponsor each month. God bless you, and God bless our friends at Mephibosheth House. We all work together to feed the hungry children in Haiti. Blessings, 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!
