Sheep Program- Mahotiere
We are very excited to share that the sheep program has expanded to another location. A few months ago we started across the valley in Bouflette, where we were able to give twenty animals away, then, at the Nazarene church in the community of Fond Latanier we gave another 14 animals. The program has moved onto the impoverished village of Mahotiere. To recap the plan: We ask each Haitian church and its board to come up with names (families and individuals), who are in most need amongst their members. True Shepherd provides a female ewe to each of these families and they in turn will be trained to care and tend the animal. The first lamb will be given back to the church as the first fruits and an offering to God. The second lamb will be theirs to own, third back to the church, etc. Tomas and his assistant (Ericles Dorsin) will facilitate breeding with the ram and the male lambs will be sold.
In consultation with the District Superintendent we are prayerfully looking for our next Haitian church on the district to share this blessing with It. God willing we will extend this program across the region to all 60+ churches.
If you or your church is interested in joining us in raising funds for this Sheep Program click here and select "Sheep Program" from the drop down list. Each church of 15-20 animals costs approximately $2,000 or an individual sheep for a single family is $100, either way the impact is huge.
