This is Dimelia. She has been with us since she was about four-years-old. She was severely burned when she was young and could not move her neck or lift her arms. Dimelia is a gorgeous young girl who has undergone several tissue release surgeries. She is doing much better and will be coming “home” to us here in Haiti on November 16th! God bless you, Sherry

Jean Edwouard, one of the children here at our Love A Child Orphanage, broke his leg today while he was playing soccer. After he got to the hospital here in Haiti, they discovered his break is closer to his knee and he will need surgery. He would like to have your prayers for his recovery. About seven years ago, we rescued Jean Edwouard from life as a restavec (slave child). Sherry

We were expecting 30 Haitian pastors to attend our Seminar for Love A Child Pastors. Then 100 showed up! Five minutes ago about 50 more people showed up! We have to provide food and sleeping accommodations for all of them, so we just keep adding food to the pot! That’s Haiti! Sherry

These precious children in the poor village of Le Tant now have a beautiful school, thanks to our partner David George and his friends. Now another miracle has happened thanks to Senior Pastor Doyle Hart and Lead Pastor Elaine Britt of the Academy Cathedral in Inglewood, CA. A kitchen, a food storage area and an office will be built right next to the church that will feed the school children. Thank you everyone who helped with this project. This is another miracle!

Baby Elijah is still in the hospital here in Haiti, but doing much better. He will need to have his shunt changed when the group of neurologists returns to Haiti this weekend. Our Medical Administrator, Barbara McMannis, was in to see him and talk to the nurse about his progress. We will see what his future holds after the team of neurologists examines him. Elijah was left outside our front gate under some bushes about five months ago. Thank you for all of your prayers, 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!
