THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING JACOB'S WELL HAITI!
In 2011, our Executive Director, Mark Thornton, took a friend up on an offer to travel to Haiti for a week to work with local Pastors and spend time with the children and staff at a couple of orphanages north of Port Au Prince. That trip and the people of Haiti had a profound impact on Mark's life. After nearly two years of prayer and a second trip, Jacob's Well Haiti became a reality. One of the pillars of our Ministry is simply listening. After speaking and listening to some of the local Pastors, we realized that the needs in their communities weren't all that different from the needs in Lincoln. They want their kids to have an education. They want people in their neighborhoods to have food to eat and safe water to drink. They want to work. We're going to do our best to help and we hope you'll join us in that effort!
Jacob's Well Primary School currently has 550 children attending and is employing 25 people from the community. What a great thing that is happening!
WE still need 60 COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIPS OF $50/MONTH to keep the school going!
