Without this orphanage, many of the children would be starving on the streets of Port Au Prince.

Pastor and his family not only provide daily basic needs for the children, but also make sure that they all attend school and participate in his church. 

The Mission Committee is thankful for your continued support of Pastor Widelson and his orphanage in Haiti.   Our congregation's generosity has enabled us to support the Pastor since 1999.  Also, a special THANK YOU  to everyone who has donated to our mission trips to Haiti

The #1 goal of the HAITI MISSION is to provide support for the children living at Pastor W's orphanage in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
