Hope for Honduras

Posted by & filed under Central America, Child Sponsorship.

Children are so precious in Campamento, Honduras. They have so many needs, but there is so much hope! We wanted to share these two photos with you from a recent trip! Barbie Jones holds this eight-year-old child who is unable to walk, talk or see. But he gives the best hugs in the whole world. His family needs a lot of extra help to take care of not only this child and his special needs but also several others. They are so graciously trying to raise these kids, but they need some help. – Even when the children don’t have special needs, they still need food & education. Bobby Moore, our Vice-President, shows how wonderful these children are. SPONSOR A… Read more »

I Have Another Daughter

Posted by & filed under Child Sponsorship, For Sponsors, Guest Posts, Haiti/Caribbean.

We’re excited to share this firsthand account of a sponsor meeting their child with you. Casey Coston is a longtime child sponsor and a campus minister at Ole Miss University. Do you know why I wanted to travel to the small village of Benjamin, Haiti? I have another daughter there! Let me explain. Benjamin is only 40 miles from Cap Haitien, a large city on the northern coast of Haiti, but it takes at least 4 hours to drive there due to very rough roads. This year it took 7 hours. The scenery is breathtaking. The jungle is dense. And the rivers are wide. While the trip is always tough, this year it was even worse. At one point, we… Read more »

As we have communicated, CRF is moving in the direction of obtaining Place of Joy in Cap Haitien, Haiti. It will be the biggest facility that we have. Currently, it is a sad place where children have been abandoned with no food and no supervision. We are trying to change all that. But Place of Joy is much more than a place with tremendous potential—it is full of children with tremendous potential. Find out how you can help us bring joy back to Place of Joy! This is Jeffery.  He is a 12 year old street kid who one day was riding his bicycle and bumped into a car.  The driver got out of the vehicle and slammed Jeffery on… Read more »

How Close is Your Water?

I’m never been more than a few minutes from clean water where I live in Amarillo. Usually I’m only a few seconds from clean water that is free for me to drink. And yet I hear people complain about water all the time. They think that the free water doesn’t taste good enough. So they go and buy bottled water that probably cost more per gallon than their gasoline. But in Labelmere, Haiti—there is no clean water close, and there is none to buy even though you couldn’t afford it if there was. Dorvil Djounio, one of our CRF partners in Pignon, recently went to Labelmere and took some of our short-term mission group from Mississippi with him. It’s over a… Read more »
