What We Have Been Doing in Haiti

As some of you have seen on our Facebook page, Haiti has been having a  lot of celebration for new beds coming! Here at Sweet Sleep we thought that you would like to know what we have been up to in Haiti:
Beds on Boats – A new Dr. Seuss Book

         A couple of weeks ago 105 beds were delivered BY BOAT to the orphans on the island of La Gonave, Haiti by Sandy Lake Wesleyan Church! The orphans are at the Okipe [Oh-kEE-pAy] Co-Op which is headed by Mme Soliette, who for the past 6 years has been caring for over 70 children. Okipe provides “hope for their future through loving care, food, clean water, shelter, clothing, and physical/spiritual/vocational training.”

    An Old Bed

          We also recently provided 16 beds for Source of Life Ministries! The orphans at Source of Life are provided with “a Christ-centered spiritual foundation, a good education and life-sustaining food, medical and emotional support.”

          Please be praying for both Okipe Co-Op and Source of Life Ministries to continue to be able to care for the fatherless. Pray for strength for their leaders and that the children they care for are soon placed into loving homes.
         Speaking of a loving home, we have some great news! Ron, our Sweet Sleep Staff Member in Haiti, recently adopted a four year old girl into his family! Please be praying for Ron and his family as they integrate this little girl into their world.

         All of this is part of our 13in13 Movement where Sweet Sleep will provide beds, nets, and Bibles to 13,000 children around the world this year! Our total so far this year will be announced March 31st, so be sure to like our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter if you want to be the first to know! It is a very big goal and maybe even a little crazy, but God loves it when we give Him a chance to REALLY show His power!
