Haiti (MNN) ― With all of the political unrest and lack of progress in Haiti, the work of For Haiti With Love is a positive witness.
Among their projects, building the Pilgrim Houses. It's a project that first began with helping a needy family into a home, seven years ago.
The Pilgrim Lutheran Church of Indianapolis, Indiana was behind the first project. It was built, dedicated to the Lord and given free of charge to a homeless family all in August 1998.
As it is, most Haitians can come up with a little land, but will never be able to put together the money to build. Their land plus volunteer labor plus help from groups like FHWL will bring in the needed materials.
When it's finished, instead of a cardboard or plastic lean-to, there's a nice concrete block home with concrete floor, wood trusses and corrugated metal roof.
Funds are now in hand for the 15th house. Putting a family in their own home is a witness not only to that family, but also to the neighbors, that God cares about them.
