#GivingTuesday

Happy December to our dear friends,

What a year it has been! Many ups and many downs, but so many reasons to be thankful!

Today is #GivingTuesday. A “global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.”  We wanted to let you know of a couple ways you could bless our ministry today.

Christmas Feeding Program – Some of the families that we were able to bless last year!
  1. Every year we raise money to provide meal packages to our community at Christmas time. Your donation of $25 would provide one family with a package of rice, beans, oil and bullion cubes. This has been an enormous blessing to our community every year and we are excited to do it again!

 Follow this link donation link and choose “Christmas Feeding Program” as your designation.

OR Mail in your donation to the below listed address and include a note stating what the donation is for.

Our beautiful Kids! Renelson, Claudelson, Pedline, Asmalie & Bruno

2. For the second year in a row we have created an amazon Christmas Wish List for the kids in the Children’s Home. We were incredibly blessed by this last year and some people asked if we would be doing it again this year!

Click this link: New Life Children’s Home Amazon Wish List to see what the kids are asking for!

Our current mission vehicle has seen better days!!

3. We have been spending a ton of money on vehicle repairs lately. More days than none ALL of our vehicles are broken down We really need to purchase a more reliable mission vehicle! We hope to purchase a 4-door Nissan or Toyota truck.

You can click this donation link and choose “Mission Vehicle” as your designation.

OR Mail in your donation to the below listed address and include a note stating what the donation is for.

The Estime Family

4. Zacharie & Stevana Estime and their 4 children are our full-time missionaries living in Haiti working as Directors of the mission. With the cost of living getting higher every day in Haiti, they are in need of support.

 If you feel led to give to their family you can follow this donation link and choose “Estime family personal support” as your designation.

5. Maybe you are unable to give financially at this time and we get that! We also know that many people are strapped because it’s tough enough just to get all your gifts purchased.  One way you can bless our ministry is using Amazon Smile. By using the URL www.smile.amazon.com and choosing “New Life Mission – Haiti, Inc.” as your designated mission , a small portion of your purchases will go to us. Every little bit helps!

Thank You for considering choosing New Life Mission – Haiti, Inc. to give towards this #GivingTuesday!

Many Blessings to you and yours this Holiday Season!

“Holed up for Haiti” Fundraiser

This year’s fundraiser for New Life Children’s Home was a HUGE success!

When we had to cancel our normal “Hoedown” event, we have to say, we was discouraged. In years past, this event raises funds to cover a large percentage of our annual budget. But we prayed and we gave it to God. And man, did he provide!

The event brought in more than $49,000. That’s right – MORE THAN 49,000! In the years prior, the most we ever made with this event was $27,000. So to make THAT much in a year like this one (you all know what I mean) was just mind blowing. Our silent auction made about 3x more than it usually does. It was just amazing. It brings us so much peace in knowing how this will allow us to take care of the kids in the best way possible!

We want to take a moment to thank EVERYONE who gave their time to help whether on our committee, with the silent auction or the meal. Without you, this event could not happen!

THANK YOU to our event sponsors!

Preparing for crisis mode…

Since Haiti’s first reported cases back in March we have been semi-quarantined at home with our kids and part of Zacharie’s family. Which means we (the adults) go out as little as possible and keep the kids inside the compound. There’s currently 25 of us living on the compound. Fourteen kids and 10 adults! A little exhausting but we have started the kids on a schedule that helps us to pass the days inside our four walls. (Thank you all for your suggestions on how to create a schedule for the kids!) All staff who do not live with us on the property, with exception of our nighttime guard, are not coming to work. We will continue to pay all our employees as long as we can, but it’s hard to say how long we’ll be able to do that with the increasing food prices, etc. We’ve been going to market once a week, very early in the morning. But the vendors are fewer each time and the prices are that much higher each week. As long as the Haiti borders are closed, we anticipate these prices to continue to rise.

Zacharie and I have been thinking how we can best serve our community during this trying time. Studies are showing that they expect the worst of the virus to hit Haiti in July. There are currently 310 cases and 20 deaths in Haiti according to https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/. With Haiti’s very poor health system its hard to say how accurate that number is. But here is our plan:

  • Hand out reusable masks – The president is currently requiring everyone to wear masks when in public. We are looking at a cost of $3/mask. We would like to have a local seamstress make 300+ masks to hand out to people in our community.
  • Hand out Food Packages – $30 would allow us to provide a family with a rice, beans, and oil to last a couple days. We would love to donate to as many people as possible in our community, but we plan to start with folks from our local church which is about 40 different families.

If you feel lead to give to this cause you can:

  1. Follow this link: https://secure.egsnetwork.com/donate/48F73DAFD9194BF
  2. Click “new life mission haiti inc general fund” as your designation
  3. Put in note field that the donation is for “covid19 assistance”
  4. OR you can mail in donations to: New Life Mission – Haiti, Inc., 420 E. Fulton Street, Ephrata, PA 17522. Please attach a note saying what the donation is for!

Thank you for your kind consideration. We know this season has not been easy on anyone and we appreciate the support we continue to receive during this difficult time!

Another need…

Our kiddos at the children’s home are in need of some new clothing. It blows my mind how fast we go through clothing here, but when you play hard in the sun outside all day then handwash your clothing, it wears out quick. It is difficult to find the right sizes here or in good condition for the right price so we are reaching out to ya’ll to see if you maybe have things to donate or would be willing to purchase for our kids.

Here are our clothing requests:

  • BOYS (size medium, large, XL or adult small)
    • Underwear, size medium and large (new)
    • Socks, boys shoe sizes range from 5-7
    • T-shirts or tank tops
    • Athletic shorts, cargo shorts
    • Dress shirts (long sleeve or short sleeve) or polos
    • dress pants
    • Belts
    • Boys ties or bowties
    • Light hooded jacket or sweatshirt
    • Jeans or light sweatpants
    • Sneakers adult size 5,6,7, or 8
    • Dress shoes adult size 5,6,7, or 8
  • GIRLS (sizes xs,s,m,l)
    • T-shirts & tank tops/camisoles
    • Shorts, skirts, bike shorts,jeans, or leggings
    • Socks
    • Underwear (new)
    • Light hooded sweatshirt or jackets
    • Dresses (for play or for church)
    • Headbands or barretes (new)
    • Shoes/sneakers/sandals kids size 13, 1, 2, 3
  • Other needs:
    • Basketball (2)
    • Over the door hooks or wall hooks
    • Bins that fit under bed (10)
    • Birthday supplies (balloons, streamers, napkins and plates of any colors) *to keep on hand

*I want to say this in the nicest way possible… We appreciate donations so very much, however many times clothing that is donated has been well loved and have holes and/or stains. So we are asking for lightly used clothes that have a lot of life in them yet as we have to spend money to ship them to Haiti and we want it to be worth the cost! Thank you for understanding.

To coordinate donation drop off you can contact our admin assistant Nancy at 7178693537 or newlifemissionh@gmail.com

Here’s a photo of our silly crew. Thank you SO very much for your support! LOVE YA’LL!

COVID-19 in Haiti with added some positivity…

You heard it right, the dreaded virus covid-19 (is it supposed to be in all caps? I don’t know. But I don’t want to give it that much power over me) has arrived in Haiti. There were two reported cases this past Thursday. The president responded by shutting down schools & business, placing an evening curfew, and asking for people to only gather in groups of 5 or less. As many of probably can guess, Haiti is not prepared for a pandemic. With a majority of its citizens living on $1-2/day and an already extremely poor medical system – the repercussions of coronavirus could be catastrophic. The people of this country have been through so much, with 2019 being one of their toughest years yet due to a corrupt government and political rioting. One thing that gives them happiness and hope is their it-takes-a-village mentality. They spend their days helping each other get by – cooking, cleaning, gardening, bathing – you name it, they do it together. So telling them now you can not go to church or you can not leave your home – it’s not adding to their already existing financial troubles, it’s stealing their joy. So please pray for everyone in Haiti’s health and for financial provision, but also for their hearts and minds, to not lose hope in a time of so much unknown…

My initial response was “this is being blown out of proportion” to “woah maybe it’s not” to “it’s the end of the world” to “God, it’s yours.” I’m taking a lot of comfort in Psalm 91 (especially verses 14-16) so I’m going to leave that here for ya’ll…

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”

 Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
 He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
 You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
 A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
 You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.

 If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”

Psalms 91

I know it’s easier said than done – but I’m choosing to live in thankfulness instead of fear. When fear overcomes me, I look up and give thanks to my King for all he’s done and will do for me. I’m finding peace in knowing that my future in CHRIST is NOT unknown. Give it to him and you will be rewarded with a sense of peace that surely surpasses understanding. Because ya’ll, this pandemic is straight up craziness and this world needs JESUS!

As for us, we are attempting to quarantine. Trying to entertain 9 kids – lots of coloring and movies and snacks and a scavenger hunt so far… As we said, we appreciate your prayers!

In more positive news….I wanted to also share with you an update about our different ministry programs. Even with all that is going on this past year, we are happy to share that we were able to continue on and see so much growth in our community…

“Cindy’s” Medical Clinic

Medical Clinic

The foundation was poured two weeks ago and now the walls are almost finished! We’re so excited! The clinic will have an exam room, dental room, pharmacy and lab as well as the waiting room. We are still in need of about $10k to totally finish the construction. If you feel lead to give to this project please click the link ( https://secure.egsnetwork.com/donate/DBB12EAA55424A1 ) or visit our ‘donate’ tab for more info. And of course, we covet your prayers as we move forward in this project. This is a huge need in our area, but more than anything, we can’t wait to see how this project furthers Gods’ kingdom. New Life Mission Medical Clinic will be named “Cindy’s Clinic” in honor of cofounder and friend Cindy Zimmerman.

Gardens

Our first cherry harvest!

Our gardens are thriving! After 3 years of waiting we finally have cherries which make awesome juice. We continue to have a ton of plantains, hot peppers & papaya. We also had a great yucca root (or cassava as some call it) harvest and were even able to sell quite a bit at market as income for the children’s home.

Microfinancing

Microfinancing is defined as a financial service for individuals or small businesses who lack the access to conventional banking and/or related services. New Life Mission – Haiti, Inc. recently began working with people in our community of Charrier who own small businesses (ie. charcoal making, restaurant, small boutiques, etc). We have a small committee of members that discusses the reliability/ credibility of the participant. If they are approved, we provide them with a small business loans. Each participant signs a contract and provides a witness. So far our loans have ranged from about $500-1000 with a repayment period of 5-10 months with a 10% interest rate. All interest collected goes back into the microfinancing fund to be able to provide more people with loans. As we move forward, we are researching into methods of how to grow our program into providing business education for our participants while at the same time, sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. We currently have 9 small business owners in our program.

Child Sponsorship Program

These three (Asmalie, Renelson & Pedline ) all need school sponsors!

Our child school sponsorship program sends over 60 kids to school each year. An annual donation of $300 pays for their tuition, books, and uniform. We have 5 children in our program who are in need of sponsors. If you would be able or interested to sponsor a child for the 2020-2021 school year please call or email us.

We know this is a difficult time for many, but if God lays it on your heart to bless our ministries you can click the “donate” tab or mail in donations to the address listed below. We thank you for all your support and just know we are praying for you guys too! Let’s band together in Christ and get through this – even if we are standing 6 feet (or more) apart.

Hello from Haiti!

I (stevie) woke up this morning to find out that our electrical lines were cut (again) from protesting towns who are demanding they receive electric as well. I mean, I get where they are coming from, but they sure aren’t making it easier for the rest of us! Also, we haven’t had running water in months during this dry, dry season and I gotta tell you, I’m really tired of carrying buckets. On top of all that, we have a truck stuck in the port (for multitple, what seem ridiculous reasons) in St. Marc that has our diapers, wipes, soap, toothpaste, etc for the next 6 months. Needless to say, I woke up with a poor attitude. And I can imagine some of you reading this, who might be stuck in quarantine in the states, might find yourself in a similar state.

There is a verse that I remind myself and others of CONSTANTLY….

I have told you these things so that in me you may find peace. In this world you will have trouble. But TAKE HEART! I have overcome the world! John 16:33

God knew this season was coming. He knew this year would be hard for us. But (and I have to repeat it to myself regularly) TAKE HEART because he’s got us. I’m not going to find peace in this earthly situation, that’s for sure. So I’m going to lean hard into my heavenly father who promises peace when the world lets us down again and again. Our problems are temporary but our God is ETERNAL! So I encourage you all, take heart and find rest in Him. It’s the only way we’ll get through this! Lift your eyes above these mountains and you’ll see, help is coming.

So we have had a busy couple of months and I (Stevie) have been slacking on providing you all with updates. I am starting to schedule “office” hours for myself to be able to better keep up in the future. Please pray for me because finding time with 9 kiddos ranging from 15- (almost) 8 months is not easy!

Because I wrote such a long update, I’ve decided to break up it up into 3 blog posts throughout this week.

Our family returned to Haiti on January 5th, almost two months after our original planned date to return home. There was continued rioting and road blocks in Haiti and as we got close to the holidays ticket prices were astronomical. So we decided to wait and were rewarded with added family time and an affordable flight home! It is so nice to be back in Haiti. In January we had 2 weeks of teams that came to serve with us. They came to help, but also to just be here and support us as we move forward without our dear Cindy. It was a sweet time. They helped do lots of projects big and small around the children’s home property, played with our kids, entertained us with laughs and farkle, and gave us encouragement in a time we needed it most. We love you guys. Thank you for your willingness to serve!

In other news…

All of our kids at New Life Children’s Home continue to do well and thrive.

Showing off their crafts after our weekly bible class.
Bruno, 15; Renelson, 13; Pedline, 8; Asmalie, 8; Claudelson, 13
(plus Abe & Moses)

We celebrated two birthdays so far this year. Asmalie turned 8 on January 15th and Bruno turned 15 on March 3rd. Being able to provide them with their first ever birthday cakes was really special. With three of our five kids only coming within 2 weeks of our departure in May, we hadn’t gotten to spend a lot of time with them. Our time since we have been home has been so sweet and it’s been fun to get to know their personalities.

Our female houseparent, Eloude, helping the kids with their homework.

As summer approaches and the kids will be off school, we are looking to create a day to day schedule for our kids. This is intimidating to me, Stevie, as we have kids ages 8 months up to 15 years old and I’m not sure what would be best to serve each child. If you have experience with this and would like to help me work on this, please let me know! Any and all recommendations would be appreciated! Please email us at newlifemissionshaiti@gmail.com

Claudelson was the first child to join us at the home in February 2019.  He came from a place where he was given very little attention or direction, and had no education up to that point. His mannerisms were similar to that of a toddler. He started school last March however has struggled the entire time to retain any of what is taught. The teachers have left him behind in class as there is no individualized schooling or special education in any school in our area. He also continues to be difficult to raise and does not seem to respond to any form of discipline. I would really like to talk to a child psychologist to discuss more of the details of his behavior, and to people with special education experience for recommendations on his schooling. If you are that person or know someone who could help, please email us. Thank You in advance!

We wanna give a shout out to everyone who blessed our kiddos with Christmas gifts! They were elated and play with them every single day! Thank you so very much from all of us!

We have been in need of a well for quite some time. There is water from a spring up in the mountain that is turned on 2x/day but during the dry season (which is now) it sometimes will not come on for days at a time. Also, there is not enough pressure to have running water so we’ve been carrying buckets of water to do everything – shower, cook, wash hands, etc. We are also in need of two additional wells on our other properties. I have contacted several organizations over the last couple of months to see if they would be able to come & dig a well for us but many of them do not travel out our direction. I finally got a hold of a mission near Port au Prince that said they would be willing to consider helping us because we are in need of several wells. They are very busy so it will be 2-3 months until they can come survey the lands to determine if they are able to dig. Please pray that they will be able to help us out!

For Christmas 2019 we had our second annual Christmas Feeding Program. A donation of $25 provided a family in our community or Montrious with a meal for the holiday. We were incredibly blessed and blown away by the generosity of our supporters. We were able to provide more than 400 families with a Christmas meal (double what we were able to give last year)! We were thanful for the opportunity to have our kids in the children’s home help pack the bags to give out and remind them the importance of giving back! Thank you ALL so much for your donations!

Please come back to our blog tomorrow for another update! Let us help you pass a little bit of your quarantine time! 😉
