It was just twelve months ago that Eastside Baptist Church began the early steps of the establishment of New Horizon Home. Over the next few days, I’ll share some of the early stories and pictures.
I’ll start here with our visit this time last year.
When Steve McMullin and I arrived in Port-au-Prince, Haiti we met the landlord of the home we would soon begin renting from, Mr. Touze. Mr. Touze met us at the airport with Alex, our director. We quickly discovered the willingness of Mr. Touze to help us.
His driver, Ronnie, would escort us through the city to buy beds and food. Mr. Touze’s friend met us one night to build a kitchen table for the girls. Mr. Touze was willing to let us use his internet connection and computer to Skype Alex regularly in those early establishing days.
Soon after the starting of the home would be the start of our school, New Horizon School. Then eventually the first worship gathering of New Horizon Baptist Church.
We will always bless the Lord for the friendship and kindness of Mr. Touze.
