The Results Are In!
Donations were still coming in this week from those of you who normally support and attend the golf outing. Words cannot express how grateful we are for your generosity. Many things have been cancelled this year, but your giving has not been, so thank you! With the final donations from this week, our total for the event was just over $8,300. This covered close to all of the rent of the boys' home for the year. WOW! Thank you again to all the individuals and businesses for your generosity and adaptability in 2020.

In January we welcomed two new boys into the Love and Grace family. Please consider sponsoring these boys and making an impact on their lives. We have registered them both in school and they are adjusting nicely. We are grateful and joyful in the Lord as He continues to bless us with the resources to be able to take in those who desperately need help.
About Love and Grace Ministries
Founded in 2009, Love and Grace Ministries helps boys who have been orphaned in Haiti or whose families cannot take care of them to provide an upbringing that will shape them into caring, conscientious adults. The home started with five boys and we now have 22 well-adjusted boys of all ages.
Sadly, it is the country’s children which suffer the most in the wake of terrible circumstances and natural disasters which makes the need for a boys home even more necessary. Knowing that the children of Haiti are in need of extra love and support, Love and Grace Ministries came to the island to establish the boys home where they can feel cared for and safe.
God has provided us with two buildings we are renting - our Boys Home and our Bridge Home. They are located in a quiet neighborhood outside Port-au-Prince where the boys live. The homes are located close to their school and church. To keep their homes operating smoothly and to ensure the boys' well-being, we reach out to the surrounding community to provide stable jobs for Christian staff members to hire. Our staff is also actively involved in helping the boys grow in their faith.
Besides housing, we also provide the boys with food, medicine and access to education. Our goal is to give them Christian values with a hope for the future, and the kind of knowledge and skills that will help them lead Haiti’s next generation of leaders.
To provide for the children of Haiti a home where they will be cared for with the utmost kindness, love, and respect. Our primary goal is to reach boys from this nation for Jesus Christ and create a brighter tomorrow for Haiti by raising up the next generation of Haitian leaders today.
We want to provide a loving home for these boys so they will come to know our Lord Jesus Christ.
Our Statement of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God to all men. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. II Timothy 1:13; 3:16-17, II Peter 1:20-21, Psalm 12:6; 119:105,160, Proverbs 30:5
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that these three are co-eternal and of equal dignity and power. Genesis 1:1,26,27; 3:22, Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, I Peter 1:2, II Corinthians 13:14
We believe that man was created by and for God; that by man's disobeying God, every person incurred spiritual death, which is separation from God, and physical death as a consequence; and that all people are sinners by nature and practice. Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:3-6, Isaiah 53:6, Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:1-2
We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal, imminent return. Matthew 1:22-23, Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-5; 14:10-30, Hebrews 4:14-15, I Corinthians 15:3-4, Romans 1:3-4, Acts 1:9-11, I Timothy 6:14-15, Titus 2:13
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and that all who believe in Him and confess Him are declared righteous because of His sacrificial death and are, therefore, in the right relationship with God. Salvation is God’s gift to man. Man can never make up for his sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can man be saved from sin's penalty. Romans 5:1; 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 14:6; 1:12, Titus 3:5, Galatians 3:26
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the bodily resurrection of everyone who has lived, the everlasting blessedness of those in right relationship with God, and the everlasting punishment of those who have rejected God's forgiveness in His Son. John 3:16, I John 2:25; 5:11-13, Romans 6:23, Revelation 20:15
We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and that all true believers are members of his body, the Church, with equality across race, gender, and class. Ephesians 1:22-23; Corinthians 12:12,27
We believe the ministry of evangelism is a responsibility of both the Church and each Christian. Romans 10:9-15; Acts 1:8; Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Peter 3:15
