From jaws of death to hands and feet of Christ
MISSION: HAITI 2023 is not a short-term mission. Climbing For Christ’s New Generation, a group of about 35 young Haitians, have continued the ministry started by Climbing For Christ from 2005 to 2013.
Climbing For Christ has been providing instruction, prayer, and support in the mountains of Haiti since 2005. The New Generation took over where we left off in 2014 with our financial support and ongoing advice.
Medical mission: Visible to God
Climbing For Christ’s New Generation (Haiti) conducted a medical mission to the mountain villages of Kalimet and Majon. “People were very happy to receive our work teams. They came in large numbers to wait for us. Everyone considered our presence there a miracle.” Most had never seen a doctor. Those who had told horror stories.
Ascending into chaos
Haiti is synonymous with crisis. Lawlessness (kidnapping, carjacking, armed robbery, gang violence), a dysfunctional government, civil unrest, fuel and food shortages, and rampant COVID-19 already had Haiti tagged “Level 4: Do Not Travel” for outsiders and was a hellhole for its population of 11-million-plus. Chaos would be a step up in Haiti. But our work goes on.
A loo with a view
Toilet, water closet, baño, loo, squatty, privy, latrine. Everyone needs a place to “go,” and too often in the mountains of Haiti that place is wherever you happen to be when so moved. Imagine schools in four villages with more than 400 students and no bathroom facilities. Messy. Not any more, thanks to latrines built by C4C's New Generation.
Coming to America – again
Gilbert Lindor was rescued by God from the jaws of death in 2007 when Climbing For Christ sent us to find a young boy with a badly broken leg in the mountain village of Gentilhomme, Haiti. Gilbert lost his leg but found salvation in Jesus. Today, he is a young adult supported by C4C.
The work goes on
What God started through Climbing For Christ from 2005 until 2014 has been restarted by a New Generation of workers.
