Today, Pastor Harry delivered food to two orphanages in Haiti. These offerings of beans, rice, pasta and cooking oil were not just “bonus” meals for the orphans; these orphanages were desperately in short supply of food for the children. Give Me Shelter Ministries – our contributors – bought $500 worth of food for the orphans that will feed dozens of children for weeks. We can’t thank you enough for your continued support to be able to provide services for the needy in the name of Christ.
We are supporting a Christmas Celebration in Haiti this month for a hundred children at Pastor Harry’s church, Premiere Eglise Baptiste De Savanne Blonde.
UPDATE 12/12/10: Praise the Lord, funds have been raised for this event! Continue reading “A Christmas Celebration in Haiti”
Update 12/12/10 – Unfortunately this trip has been cancelled for volunteers. Kenny will still go to Mexico to deliver the 1000 pairs of shoes, but it is too dangerous down there with the drug gang violence to take volunteers. Please keep Kenny and his family in your prayers as he makes the trip.

The volunteers of Give Me Shelter Ministries and First Baptist Church, Ft. Walton Beach, leave FWB Christmas night at midnight. Would you like to join us to celebrate Christmas in Mexico and help us deliver the shoes to the children and families?
We’ll arrive in Laredo Texas the 26th. We will be staying at Primera Iglesia Bautista Church stateside; we will travel back and forth across the border each day. We will deliver the shoes and food at two locations: Pastor Felipe’s church and Pancho Villa colonia. We will be in the field the 27th and 28th, leave Laredo mid morning on the 29th and spend that night in Houston. We will get up early the morning of the 30th and head to FWB.
The cost is 90.00 per person. Each person is responsible for meals to Mexico and back to FWB. The 90.00 covers all transportation and meals while in Texas and Mexico and the cost of the hotel room in Houston.
Anyone interested should contact Kenny via email or 850-496-7398.
