As we celebrate Thanksgiving I wanted to tell you all of how thankful I am for your generosity towards our mission and for your love of God’s poorest of the poor.

We are now building a medical clinic and a loving home for the forgotten elderly of Haiti and we couldn’t do it without you.

As we give thanks this week, I want to send you a big THANK YOU for your support.

God bless and have a great Thanksgiving!

– Sean Forrest

Yes, Catholic Digest met Haiti180. Well, pretty much, anyway. You see, the popular magazine first met our Haiti180 ministry last year … when we were Mission Haiti.

But I digress.

They highlighted the 10th anniversary of the mission in their “Love Your Neighbor” section last December, publishing an interview with Sean in which he shares how and why this whole mission began — and where he sees it going. Check out Sean’s comments in the link … It’s a great read for all of you who love Haiti180 and believe in what we’re trying to do.

Less than a year after this article appeared, it’s so exciting to see where we’ve come, as the medical facility is now well underway and a new project — the elderly home Kay Martina — is in planning. We even have a new name and renewed focus, as we work hard to do our part in turning around this poor island nation.

And through it all, something never changes: God continues to amaze us with His grace. As Sean says in the interview when asked what he would consider his highlight on this journey:

“It would have to simply be God’s faithfulness to the entire project. We have a dedicated, loyal team of staff and missionaries, but we are at the mercy of the Lord—and we live in grateful awe of how he continues to provide for our every need.”

Whether we are Mission Haiti or Haiti180, we are called to love and serve. And to be grateful, for God is ever faithful.

Peace & Blessings … Lynn

Music and ministry just go together here at Haiti180.

So it’s no surprise that a recent Christian music festival topped off our summer and provided the perfect launch pad for our new name and renewed focus.

Haiti180 made its debut at Soulfest 2013 … where Sean had some awesome stage time, leading the candlelight prayer service and giving inspiring performances at the top of Gunstock Mountain, at a cool after-hours stage, and in the festival spotlight on main stage.

And the Saturday-night collection for our ministry allowed Sean to teach thousands of people a song in Creole, with the help of Katie, Manno, and Brother Delord from our Haitian team. Being high up on the mountain during that time, I was totally overwhelmed by the thousands of singing voices swirling around me — and by the incredible generosity of people who often chased us down to give us their donations for Haiti180. I can already see that village elderly home being built in my mind!

Here’s a glimpse of the performance time …

Throughout the festival, volunteers — ministry team members, our children, and our dedicated friends — staffed the loud and bustling tent from early Wednesday morning until close to midnight on Saturday. We sold T-shirts, bracelets, and CDs, while giving away Haiti180 tattoos (our youngest helpers were the stars of this effort) and sharing LOTS of information on how people can join us for mission trips or contribute to the effort from the States.

Check out the action in the tent …

It was a time of grace. A time when we opened our hearts and souls … and showed thousands of people that Haiti is there inside.

Peace & Blessings … Lynn

As you can probably see, we have rebranded our efforts from Mission Haiti to Haiti180. We have made tremendous progress in Haiti with a new school, a new church, and a busy orphanage taking care of children in the countryside of Haiti.
