This past weekend (25-27th) the North West district in Haiti held its first ever children's camp at the Bouflette church campus. Hundreds of children from across the north west came to hear the life changing message of Jesus. They sang worship, played games and gathered late night around a big bonfire and on the final day visited a local beach, (most for the first time) for swimming and sand. All the children received a full meal every day of the camp, this perhaps doesn't sound much but for many of the children of this region, a meal everyday is a luxury they dont often enjoy.

Their are so many stories of hearts turned toward God and I look forward to sharing many of them in the future. A big thank you to Grace and Peace church of Oceanside for partnering with True Shepherd to provide transportation, security and food for all. It really cant be overstated the impact this will and does have on the children. To have something that is purely theirs, set aside for them to enjoy and participate in, is truly life changing. With the tough currcumstances of life, children dont get what we in USA take for granted. Many of the children have to work hard, collecting water etc to help their families survive the harsh environment. It’s great to see these children honored as loved children of God.

 What a blessing for the children to gather, learn about God and His love.
