David Livingstone was probably the greatest missionary ever to work in Africa. Right before he died while he was bleeding profusely, he got out of bed, got on his knees, folded his hands and said, “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.” His heart and organs were buried under a tree in Africa. His body was carried for eight months over the shoulders of natives for one thousand miles to Zanzibar, and then transported by boat to England where he was buried in Westminster Abbey.

“An Empty Sack Cannot Stand.” This is a Haitian Creole Proverb that means, “When you are hungry, you cannot stand, think, work or learn.” School children cannot learn on an empty stomach, they need food. Thank you partners for feeding so many thousands of children each day. These children attend one of Pastor Wilson’s schools and receive food from Love A Child each month. Some of the food that you help sponsor from the States to Haiti goes right here! Thank you so much and may God bless you! Bobby and Sherry

The real blessings of the Lord come when we open our hearts to the “cry of the poor.” These precious children go to Christian Light School here in Haiti. Imagine how happy they are to receive this nourishing meal when they come to school each day. This is why we are so happy to be able to share what we have with others, because “hungry children cannot learn.” These children are being cared for by one of the missions with whom we share our food called the Christian Light School! God bless you! Sherry

Jesus told the young lawyer two things that you must do to inherit eternal life. I gave you the scripture from Luke 10:27 yesterday morning. The last part of the scripture says that we should love our neighbor as thyself. The lawyer asked, “Who is our neighbor?” Please read Luke 10:25 through 37 today. This is a pearl from the Word of God. Bobby
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!
