In 2004 St. John’s started supporting the ministry of Pastor Mioche in Bouyahah and Pingnon, Haiti. Since then, we have supported the Pastor Mioche’s ministry financially and by sending clothing, household items, school supplies, and more. We also played a large part in constructing a building for a school in a very remote part of North Central Haiti.

In 2013, ten of St. John’s members visited Haiti. Our goal was to raise $10,000 for the first phase of the school building. Thanks to St. John’s generosity and commitment to this ministry, we raised $23,000. Phase One consists of three classrooms and a kitchen. Construction on Phase Two has begun and continues whenever funds become available. Phase Two contains enough classrooms so that all the children can be out of the elements, as well as an administrative room and a secure storage room. At school, the children receive a hot lunch; many times this is the only meal the kids get all day. The 2013 mission team also provided medical care to the village, taught bible study to the children, had a women’s bible study, and taught young men how to build solar panels.
