The rest of the story, continued from two days ago…
When the “village of the bad people,” Nacou, heard that Haitian Customs Agents had taken our truck loaded with food, they said, “Love A Child feeds all the people of this area and saves lives. If you don’t give them back their truck, we will burn down the Customs building and start a riot!” When we heard that, we urged them, “No, please don’t do that. We will work things out with them.” Our truck and food were quickly released, and now everyone is happy. We are planning a crusade in that area very soon. Being a missionary in Haiti is not easy and it takes lots of wisdom. If you feel God has called you to the mission field, come to our Love A Child Missionary Training Center to the “Regions Beyond.” Our first program starts June 7th and runs through August 2nd of 2015. Be the best for Jesus! Sherry

Thank you for partnering with Love A Child to feed hungry children in Haiti. This little boy is from Good Samaritan Mission in Cite Soleil, which is one of the worst areas of Haiti. He receives a hot and nourishing meal each day at school that really helps him learn. Each month, we share our food with 63 other organizations and ministries. Thank you! Sherry
P.S. Later, l will let you know more about our Mitsubishi truck that was full of food and was confiscated by Haitian Customs Agents. God bless you, Sherry

We had a wonderful week of food distributions with the team from Feed My Starving Children. This organization donates food to us here in Haiti. Our wonderful partners sponsor the transportation of this food from Coon Rapids, Minnesota all the way to Haiti. Once here, it must clear through Haitian Customs and is then sent to our Kingdom Connection Food Distribution Center in Fond Parisien. From our Distribution Center, the food travels throughout Haiti by boat, donkey, on foot, or by truck to some of the hungriest children in the world. See more about this in Sherry’s Journal today!

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!
