The Intern vs. Village Champion soccer game is one of the many joyful events of the summer. A little friendly competition is always fun, but what is so great is that this soccer game reflects the friendships formed from working alongside each other this summer to better serve and bring life transformation to every man, woman, and child in Haiti. Our Village Champions and interns are incredible and we appreciate their faithfulness to the Lord!

This week, as our interns were in Leveque, they met a group of Haitians worshiping on one of the hills. They discovered the group was from a village two and a half hours away and that two years ago they felt God calling them to travel to Leveque every Wednesday morning to pray over the community! This photo shows the view from where they pray. 615 homes have now been built in Leveque for families displaced by the earthquake. What an amazing example of the Lord's faithfulness!

Want to know what Church Advancement REALLY looks like? Last week our friends from First Baptist Church, Jacksonville went into the village of Simonette and visited families, doing Community Health training and sharing the Gospel. Each green dot represents a story of life transformation! Our Haitian Village Champions and pastors now have data on each of these families to use to continue to meet their physical and spiritual needs. Now THAT'S taking ownership of your community!

Hey everyone, we would like you to meet Jacques, Jean Louis, Frenel and Jean August. These four men are our amazing Village Champions from Simonette. Every morning they get together to pray. They pray for their village, for their families and for the people of Haiti. These men are seen as leaders in Simonette and are the first people that get called whenever something happens in their village. They work as a family and by doing so, they are able to reach every man, woman and child in their village! We are so proud of them!
