Brought to us by his impoverished grandmother, Edney arrived knowing no English and having virtually no schooling. Yet today the ranks as perhaps our greatest student. Adept in science, math and reading, Edney, is the first to tackle difficult problems. His self-confidence is amazing given his tough circumstances, yet he remains humble and soft-spoken in his accomplishments. He plans to be a doctor, and we wouldn’t bet against him!
The goal of the mission is to provide a safe, nurturing environment for Haitian children who do not have one. Children are cared for medically, nutritionally, educationally and spiritually. They are taught in both French and English, with a goal of achieving at least a high school diploma. Christian prayer and guidelines are a part of their daily life, as is a sense of giving back to the mission though work and responsibility.
