Today we welcome Pete and Denise Roberts from Harrison Poultry, Inc. in Georgia. Pete has worked with chickens for 50 years. He is here to help start the Haitians off on the right foot on how to raise chickens for their Haitian Chicken Co-op Program. Pete knows more about chickens than anyone alive! Well pretty close to it! Bobby

There is a big difference between a desire and having a true calling to be a missionary. If we only have the desire, then when it gets hot, everything goes bad, and voodoo powers are all around us, one may weaken. When money is tight, there is death, starvation and emergencies every day; the desire will leave you very quickly. One who has the true calling of God to be a missionary will not be stopped. “Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall…” 2 Peter 1:10 – Do you have the calling?

It is just now getting quiet (thank you Jesus) after the big “Birthday Bash” here at our orphanage. We celebrated “three months of birthdays” that we got behind on, and also lots of kids who made “highest grades” in their classes. It was loud, noisy and lots of fun. The little boy I am holding is Kevenson, who suffered from severe malnutrition. He is staying with us for a while. He is so cute and spoiled by the girls! Good night! Sherry

This morning, the first 500 one-day-old chicks arrived at the Chicken Co-op here in Haiti! Thank you to Mike Welch, Larry, and our friends at the USAPEEC International Poultry Development Program. Very soon the Haitian people who are working in the Chicken Co-op Program will be able to put hundreds of chickens in the Grand Miracle Market each week to sell. Helping Haitians help themselves! Love is something you do! Bobby

So, you want to be a missionary? Are you willing to leave your friends, your loved ones, and the conveniences of living in the U.S. or the country where you now live? Are you willing to take up the cross, sacrifice all, and are you willing to serve and not be served? Are you willing to say to the Lord, “Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8 – Click here if your answer is yes. 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!
