Many of you know the devastation and poverty of Haiti either by news reports, the scenes from the devastating earth quake in 2010 or by traveling the country with me and Stepstones Ministry International or other ministry groups. It has been said the only thing that can change a country is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and Education. We at Stepstones believe this statement and are striving to build up church leaders through training conferences and by providing education for 350 students taught by eight teachers a little village called Drouin. We, as a 501(c)3 nonprofit, rely on donations from individuals, churches and businesses to help us meet the needs of the tasks to which we are called. As we transition out of Summer Break and back to the routine of school and hopefully soon Autumn, so is Haiti. With this transition happening in Haiti and our call to build up church leaders to share the Gospel and to provide education in Drouin comes great need of financial resources. We have two pressing needs as we move into this portion of the year. The first is resources to pay our teachers. The teachers are paid $125.00 per month and we are in need of people to help sponsor four teachers. Sponsors can contribute any amount either as a onetime gift or on a monthly basis. The goal is to raise commitments from sponsors that total $500.00 per month. The second pressing need is to raise $7500.00 to provide Creole Study Bibles that contain a simple concordance and commentary. We will be hosting a Leadership Conference the first week of October for 150-200 pastors and church leaders. Most of the pastors and leaders don’t have a personal copy of the Bible. We would like to present each participant a new study bible as they arrive for the conference. This one act of compassion will assist the pastors in their personal growth in the Lord as well as help them become better students and proclaimers of the Word. Would you please join us in praying for and sharing the pressing need of these resources? All financial contributions and sponsorships are tax deductible and can be made payable to Stepstones Ministry International and sent to P.O. Box 1988 Center, Texas 75935.
