Getting Ready to Head Home

Our team of missionaries wrapped up their trip today and will be heading home tomorrow. Much of the day was spent tending to last minute issues as well as requests from NVM’s permanent missionaries and coordinating to keep the school in Onaville on track for it’s September opening.

Thankfully, there was also some downtime for our team and they got an opportunity to rest and pack prior to making the early morning trip to Port-Au-Prince for the flight back to the States tomorrow.

Please join us in praying for the team’s safe return to their homes throughout the United States! We’ll let you know when they’re safely on the ground here in the States!

VBS Support and Laying the Gravel Foundation for the School

Today, the team traveled back to Onaville and had the opportunity to support another missionary group with their Vacation Bible School. They led the congregation of kids in songs. They sang Soon and Very Soon in English, Jesus Loves Me and Love Lifted Me in both English AND Creole. What a treat!

After the praise portion and while the team from the other missionary group conducted the rest of VBS, the team laid the gravel foundation for the school.

Late this afternoon, several team members had the opportunity to walk to Chambrun this afternoon to spend time with an extended family unit that the interns from Nehemiah Vision Ministries and Richard have developed a relationship.

Oh, and there was food prep. Tons and tons of quartered peanut butter sandwiches! Yum!!!

Building Desks and Benches for the School

The EVM mission team was busy yesterday working on the new benches and desks for the school. Thankfully, prayers were answered and enough raw materials were delivered to build 8 desks/benches yesterday. We appreciate your prayers!!

As you can see from the photos, this is not your average build job as each desk and bench frame is welded by hand. The welder is a local Haitian man who has worked with our partner ministry, Nehemiah Vision Ministries (NVM). When not working as a welder, he is learning to speak, read, and write English with the help of one of the NVM interpreters.

Once the frames are welded, they are painted, drilled and then the required wood is added to complete the job. It is tough, but important work. Without these desks and chairs, the children would have try and learn while sitting on dirt and rocks.

Prepping the Temporary School Tent

The EVM Missionaries traveled to Onaville bright and early to clean up the grounds under the tent for temporary school. They moved rocks, broke up large stones, and removed all the rubble from the site by wheelbarrow. They also made repairs and improvements to the tent. The sides of the tent will be replaced later in order to provide better protection from the rain and wind.

The morning work was finished quickly. The combined energy of the EVM team and the local Haitians was truly awesome – God was truly in the middle of the efforts! Afterwards, the team hiked up the side of the mountain overlooking Onaville, led by Anna, an intern in Haiti. The coolest thing was local kids from Onaville who joined the adventure and hiked all the way to the top. The team could see the future school site from there and prayed over the town.

Please continue to pray for the team and the timely delivery of materials for the bench and desk construction!!


Young EVM team members are making friends all over Onaville! A mission of love!!

Praise and Worship in Onaville!

Early this morning, our missionaries traveled to Onaville to attend the worship service. Pastor Pierre preached a very powerful message from Mark 10. It’s amazing to feel the spirit of God even when you understand none of the words! It was awesome to see how much the Haitians participate in services and how neither time nor heat bother them as they worship the Lord.


Tomorrow they will head back to Onaville to clear the grounds for the temporary school site. They also were able to see desks and benches to be built for the school.



It’s very hot in Haiti, please pray for everyone to stay safe while working out in the heat!

Tomorrow morning they will travel to Onaville bright and early at 0700 to participate in their Sunday worship service! Please pray for our missionaries to use their God-given gifts as they serve the Haitian people and start the first of many schools built by EVM in Haiti! Be Blessed!

Graduation Day for ESL camp

The EVM Mission Team had a glorious day in the Lord at Onaville! We were blessed to close out out the 2-day ESL camp with over 60 new students bringing the total to over 175 children participating in classes and today’s graduation ceremony!! We opened with the children singing, “This is the Day” and “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands.”

Sister Isabella shared her inspirational testimony of life as a child in a Caribbean country and how she accepted Christ during a similar crusade led by missionaries. At the conclusion of her testimony, the Haitian children were given the opportunity to accept Christ into their lives. Over 25 children came forward to accept Christ as their personal Savior! Glory to God!!

To celebrate the conclusion of the wonderful camp, we prepared for what turned out to be a festive fellowship celebrating the success of the children. We were blessed by a special dance ministry featuring a group of young ladies who attended the camp and then stayed behind each day to learn the routine. The excitement and sense of accomplishment was very evident on their faces!  The graduation ceremony was a blessed event! ALL of the children received a graduation certificate and a goody bag to take home. It was an exciting time for both the children and EVM Mission Team!



Our amazing interpreter team was crucial to othe EVM Mission Team’s ministry in Onaville! Valentina,
Nicky, Joshua, Jacson and Juvenal…the Fab Five!;

Second Day of ESL camp

Today, we taught English as a Second Language in Onaville for 112+ children ages 4 – 14. In our classes, we worked on numbers, days of the week, months of the year and sang, “This is the Day that the Lord has Made.” We taught the children “Father Abraham” and practiced “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands” for the graduation ceremony tomorrow! Sister Sherwanna also rehearsed her dance team for the ceremony! The day ended with all the children getting a candy treat!

Tomorrow, Sister Isabella and the team will host a graduation ceremony and a celebration for our beautiful children! Pastor Massion, the School Head Mistress Madame Yvette, Jacson and our interpreters – Valentina, Joshua, Juvenal and Nikky – have been key to our success teaching the children English and helping them learn about God’s love. We prepped treat bags and certificates for the children and a little something special for the teachers! So excited for tomorrow! ‪

First Day of ESL camp

Today in Onaville, the EVM Mission team hosted an English as a Second Language (ESL) camp for 50+ children ages 6-12! Sister Isabella led the team and we all worked with the children with the crucial assistance of our four Haitian interpreters! The children were so excited and enthusiastic!

We taught in English “Jesus Loves Me”, introductory phrases like “I am Bernard. What is your name?”, numbers and colors, “He’s Got the Whole World in His Hands”, and John 3:16. The children put together a craft reflecting God’s hands holding the world! The children sang “Jesus Loves Me” trying to out sing their friends in other classes. So sweet to hear them sing!

Later in the day we walked to Chambrun with Pastor Gami to see the home EVM is building! The foundation has been laid and we look forward to seeing the progress that is made this week.

Worship in Onaville, Haiti

We had a wonderful service with Pastor Massion and his congregation at the church in Onaville this morning! Minister Richard Green preached and Pastor Gami interpreted. It was definitely a Spirit-filled worship service all to the Glory of God!! We let the congregation know we were happy to be in fellowship with them, sang “He’s got the whole world in His hands” and introduced the team! The congregation expressed their love in hugs and blessings after church!!

We spent the afternoon getting to know our team members…what an awesome group here on the ground in Haiti! Later in the day, we prepared for English as a Second Language camp tomorrow. Sister Isabella blessed us by teaching us the ESL approach and gave us a short lesson in Creole 101!

Finally, It is pouring rain with a thunderstorm and lightning! First major rain event since last October! During devotions, we prayed for a temperature drop and rain! God is so good!!
