Story number 3 for 26 Aug 2003

(Haiti)–Haiti continues to struggle to resolve its three-year-old political troubles. The efforts, though, have resulted in more poverty and continued want. That paves the way for a ministry, ‘For Haiti With Love’ to respond. For Haiti’s Eva DeHart says they recently held their ‘Christmas in August’ party. The money raised funds the actual Christmas party in Haiti, which enters 16-years this year. “There’ll be anywhere from 700 to 1500 there on Christmas day. They’ll all get a full meal, they’ll all get something brand new for Christmas that is something that they would like, instead of something that they need for survival.” More than just fun, DeHart says the whole party moves toward ministry. “You’re celebrating Messiah’s birthday, and you’re doing it in a way that really illuminates His love in a very tangible way.”
