AMG partnering to bring hope in Haiti.

By November 8, 2006

Haiti (MNN)–A short term mission team planted seeds for AMG International’s Alicia Hatton says they worked with a partner church that runs a 700-student school in the town of Grand Basin, about 30 miles from the Dominican Republic border.

When they arrived, it was evident the rural town was also in need of a clinic. “We worked with not only the medical clinic, but also with the children that were in the school.”

The school was made up of some of the neediest children in the region. Their visit had a huge impact on the kids. “We visited each one of the classes at the school and we told a Bible story. We did crafts with each class. We passed out toothbrushes and talked about taking good care of your teeth. With each one of the classes, we shared the Gospel of Christ.”

Hatton says the children were receptive to the hope of the Gospel…receptive to the point where they’re planning a follow-up trip as early as March 2006.

The need for discipleship with the local church stems from the response to the Gospel. “Many of these students are not Christians. They have not accepted Jesus Christ. It was very important for us to share the Gospel with them in every single class and give them an opportunity to respond.”
