Haiti Update

As days pass with no food, desperation in the remote  mountain villages increases.  The torrential rains and destroyed homes add to the problem. Without help from the government or major organizations, the help that you are sending became the first and only aid for the hundreds of people that God has allowed us to reach. With so many houses destroyed from the hurricane, many people are seeking shelter in nearby caves. Gardens, trees and animals are wiped out, making the main food sources unavailable.

We are continuing to distribute food directly to the people in the unreached areas by boats and trucks. Thousands of people are still waiting in desperate conditions. We must all pray for national attention from the Haitian government and Washington.  As the rains continue, exposure and hunger grip the lives of thousands of people without their first handout. If you could just see how grateful the people that we have been able to reach are. We have already distributed  over 25 tons of food and 200 tarps. With God's help, we will be sending our Haitian builders out with tin and supplies to secure damaged buildings that we can use for receiving stations when trucks of food, supplies, and container contents arrive.  We have begun sending workers to mountain tops to take a census on families and number houses for distribution.  Many people are still missing.  This is truly a national crisis and we need prayer that national attention will come to these remote isolated  parts of Pestel.
Please visit or call our office at (561)868-5005 to donate funds or to find out about our Pack-A-Box program.

The drop off containers in Lake Worth, FL will be available until October 30. After that date, we are requesting that the Pack-A-Box donations be shipped to the flight companies listed on our website at We will continue to collect funds to purchase food and supplies in Haiti as we have been doing. We distributed the supplies that have arrived in Haiti so far and we are ready for the other container shipments to arrive. We appreciate your donations! There is so much to be done. These are a few pictures of food and aid distribution in the areas that had not received any help until we arrived. It was difficult to leave so many people with so many needs. It has been raining every day and without tarps, thousands of people must live without a roof over what is left of their homes. We appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for keeping us in your prayers.

Hunger in the Mountians

The hunger here in the mountains of Haitiwhere the winds of Hurricane Matthew were the strongest is beyond anything that we had imagined. It looks as if there was a nuclear explosion. Until now, their tears and cries have been unnoticed by the outside world. We are the first to arrive in these unreached areas where the people are living in survival mode. God has helped us through some dangerous roads. Although we have security with us, we have been safe and have not needed it. The roads that we have been driving on in the mountains have been very rough. Many of the roads seemed impossible to travel on and are in need of a bulldozer to clear the way, but we pressed on to get there. Today we are in the mountains of Pestel and tomorrow we will travel to the coastal villages. Thursday, we will go to three mountains that people say are flattened by the storm. We are told that the people there are desperate for help. No help has been to the places that we have been and are going to. The crops and trees are barron. We are setting up major distribution points for the masses and going from house to house when needed. The crowds are so desperate for food and tarps. There are thousands stranded due to houses being destroyed or missing roofs. The churches that could have been used for refuge are destroyed also. It rained all night last night and people slept out in the open when they could not find cover. We are estimating that 5,000 tarps are needed ASAP. Pestel is unrecognizable. It is terrible to see the people that you love suffering to this extent. All of the work that we have done in building centers is gone. They are so grateful for this food that we purchased in Port-Au-Prince with donations. It is giving them hope. We are encouraging them and and letting them know that God has not forgotten them. We met with Dr. Philip and his plea is to get food to three extremely high mountains. We are sending for more food and having people come down from the mountains and haul it up. This will take them hours through the mud, but we cannot get our vehicles there. We badly need a helicopter to bring food and supplies.  Dr. Philip said that 30 people have died from the storm in this area and an additional 6 have died of Cholera. There are 6 more people here with active Cholera. His concerns are of possible epidemics of the Flu and Malaria. We are leaving for Caye la Salle where they are in serious need of food. We will then go to Jeanbouline and send for people to come from the mountains that we cannot reach for food distribution.  NO major organizations are here and we are going to contact some immediately when we return to Port-Au-Prince. Many of these people will die of hunger and disease if we don't get more national help. 

We cannot thank you enough for your continued prayer support. Now that we know the needs first hand, we are posting a revised list of much needed items. Please consider donating funds, food or supplies. The supplies can be dropped off at the locations on our website at You can donate there also. God bless each and every one of you.

Haiti Update

Hi everyone, we haven't wasted a minute today going full speed utilizing every staff Member and volunteers, going In all directions, even  to the D.R. Border to pick up a truckload of medication we are so grateful for purchased and coordinated by IFJ. We were able purchase tons of food and 200 tarps, and also sent a huge truck with 200  boxes of food yesterday and water with our Haitian staff. The truck broke down but all working out. Tools for clearing roads were sent to Jeremie as well as Pestel last week, preparing some isolated areas especially in the mountains to get  in to distribute. Our supreme goal and prayer is to reach the In-reached in the Hard to reach areas with life saving food, medical, and clean water, and also identify Where the Cholera areas are not yet reported. We have Dr, Steve Schroering, am Orthopedic surgeon from our BOD. He  brought large suitcases of casting material that Dr. Philip requested. Another team just leaving left various over the counter meds.  We've had both Toyota land cruisers serviced so all in all we will be  leaving tomorrow with four packed vehicles, and Hugh trucks of food  going ahead. We know that God has placed his angels of protection  over all of us as well as over all of this precious food and supplies.  Please keep this entire work team in your prayers. The phone calls begging for assistance are critical. Our only desire now is to reach them quickly.  We couldn't be doing Any of this without your love and sacrifice. Just wanted to give you  an update before we leave as we never know if any communication is available.
Many Blessings, Miriam

Tuesday, January 12, 2016


It's been a rough couple of days for those of us who received the news about Jacques. He was a shining light to all of us, but now he is a shining light in Heaven. He is singing and dancing and praising God with unspeakable joy. He isn't out of breath or struggling to breathe. Each time God blesses us with a new child, we know that we have been "touched by an angel." You couldn't come in contact with him or experience him in worship without being changed. Watching him was like being lifted up to heaven itself!

Jacque was found abandoned at General Hospital when he was three years old. He was termed "grossly malnourished." He had severe Pulmonary Tuberculosis, severe asthma, and a very large tubercular cyst on his neck that would later have to be lanced. He came to New Life when he was about three years old and we put him on a TB program for 15 months. He made great improvement quickly due to meds, good care, love and affection. This can be the greatest medicine of all. What a blessing it is to see children like Jacque who come into New Life so broken emotionally and physically, begin to run and play and throw their little arms around you to return that love. There aren't enough words to say thank you to God and to all those who make it possible for broken and hurting children like Jacque to come through our gate and be transformed.
I wonder just what Jacque went through for the first few years of his life to reach such a horrible condition. I wonder about the days and nights of hunger when his little frail body coughed up blood and was filled with fever. I wonder how alone and forgotten he felt with no one there. No child should ever suffer this pain, but there are many who do. Social services continue to give us so many abandoned children. Most of them are severely crippled, sick and hurting on arrival. I could tell stories and show photos that would keep most people awake all night. We have received kids found in the
dump, those dying of severe malnutrition, and those with many other desperate conditions. The pain that they suffer is unspeakable. New Life was birthed as a rescue center, therefore we have had to deal with so much death over the years. Our ministry began in the mountains in bringing back children whose lives were hanging on by a thread. Many of these children died on the way back to receive medical help. Some passed away in the hospital, but most lived because of New Life and the loving nannies and people who care and embrace each one of them with God’s love. Jacque was so happy and he made others happy too, but we must not ever forget that many of the children at New Life are still in the process of healing and others carry the pain of their past and the results of the lack of care or immunizations that they didn’t receive. Although they shine with joy, some will never walk or talk. Jacque carried the terribly scarred lungs and severe asthma that would follow him throughout his life and cause him to struggle to breath even with doctor visits and breathing treatments.

Jacque couldn't talk very well, but he could communicate with everyone. Much of the time he lived in his own world. He went around checking on each person and “reporting" on anything that he felt needed attention. Often, he would ask for a passport to go to the U.S. One day we told him that we needed him here at New Life to administrate since he did it so well. He was so proud and we had a make believe ceremony and gave him a badge, a play phone, a pen and paper. He was constantly on the phone carrying on conversations that were so real to him. Sometimes I would ask who he was talking to and he would say Sherry or Daniel. He handed us and many visitors daily reports that only he could understand and then he would stand proud as we would commend him on his great job, sometimes rewarding him with treats. I remember seeing him out in the water on one of our beach trips. In front of him was a line of children waiting for him to baptize them. One by one, he would dip them in the ocean and then raise them up. After they would catch their breath, he would motion to the next child that it was their turn. I am convinced that this made God smile. I can't speak enough about how this young man would get lost in worship or the countless times that I can recall him dancing, praising God with all his heart and lifting up his voice and hands to the Lord.

Over the last the last several months he seemed to be struggling more and more, but he never stopped smiling, helping out or worshiping. He was such a part of all of our lives and it's difficult to imagine New Life without Jacque. Today, he is singing and worshiping in the presence of our Lord. Thank you Lord for the pleasure of caring for this precious angel of 23 years. It's not easy to loose a child, but God has taught us that He alone knows what is best, and if Jacque's life had been prolonged, perhaps the suffering of trying to breathe would have become unbearable. We don't have all of the answers and we grieve his absence terribly, but we also celebrate his joys now. We have learned that some of these children are only loaned to us for a season of hours, days or years and it is a privilege to love and care for them. Today was very difficult for us all and for me personally. I pray that God will continue to help us more than ever to rescue more and more children. I pray that He will bless each person that helps us to rescue and provide for theses kids. When we left for the airport just before Christmas, he reminded us that he wanted a passport and that he wanted to be adopted. He is in heaven now; adopted into the family of God. We will see him again some day.

We will be making a trip to General Hospital soon. We will go to the abandoned children ward that would make you cry. There are aisles and aisles of children crying and crying in very small beds with their hands tied to each side of the rails. Each one of them is hurting and needing someone to care. There are many more Jacques waiting to be rescued and loved. He is in a better place. Others are waiting for hands to pick them up and tell them to hush their crying. We love you and are taking you home.

Miriam and all of us at New Life.

Update about the drought and what we are doing to help

There has been so much joy and excitement at New Life this week and so many wonderful blessings. After a powerful prayer meeting, we sent a team to the mountains of Pestel to build a third feeding center and a large cistern that will hold 7,500 gallons of clean water. The long drought destroyed food crops and left thousands sick from drinking from green and brown water holes. The rains are now falling and bringing life again. It has been a long, hot, heartbreaking summer. We are so very grateful for the response to our plea for the water projects, food and medical supplies that have been saving lives. The urgent prayers of the people were answered. The malnutrition pavilion centers and a large center are being built. So far, they are in seven remote villages and are saving many lives. Our only doctor for 115,000 people showed up today to pick up the funds to fix the health centers generator. It has been broken for weeks. There are no lights at night for the many patients there. Thank God for the angel that provided. They have no medicine or gloves. We will be sending $1,000 of meds with him. This is really needed each month. He said that many mountain areas are in bad medical condition and desperately need help. Thank God for Dr. Philip. He won't give up trusting that the Moline clinic and the hospital will be a reality one day on the ten acres that were donated. Until then, we will continue to feed the many malnnourished kids and elderly people in 7 areas. We will also send a nurse out to each of those villages periodically and work from the building that was once used for making peanut butter before it closed down. We will soon build a big brush arbor with benches. Many patients walk hours and some all night with the sick. The clinic will be open two days a week with Dr. Philip and a nurse. This is 35 miles away from the health center. Our team, headed by Ricky Baines and Jude Tharp’s team, will work at two construction sites for water, and then paint the Jeanboline church before heading back this weekend. Pastor Ralph Sawh from Trinidad will teach over 100 pastors in Joligebert and then move to Jeremie for the second seminar. We hired a large truck and asked the team of pastors to go to Pestel to pray over the 10 acres with us. Thousands of lives can be saved when the hospital is built. We have buried enough children and parents. Although we will continue to do so, enough is enough. We need your prayers. We have the engineer’s plans broken down into phases.

Back at New Life, kids are kids. They are excited about Christmas. Last night we spent hours together planning skits and songs, crafts and decorations. It's so wonderful to hear the kids playing and singing and just having fun like kids should do. They are healed and happy. Thank you Jesus and each one who makes this possible.

Please pray for us for provision. We are believing God to feed three orphanages and the community children all on different days at Christmas time. These are kids that would never know that it is Christmas. All of our kids volunteered to choose something special of theirs to give away and to serve the kids at the other orphanages. That sure made mom happy!

I received a first hand report about the drought situation in the mountains in Haiti. We were hoping that the recent storm had brought some relief for water. I'm happy to say the the news is good for Fond Verette. The storm brought the much needed rain and temporarily helped this city. For the Pestel region, the news was not so good. The reports saddened us. The news came from our workers who just arrived back and the pastor’s wife who brought Max to us. She was so discouraged as she told the story of the continued despair that has worsened as they received no rain, but the violent winds from the storm took the roofs off of many homes and destroyed crops, huts and many animals, bringing hunger to an all time high there. We spent much of today organizing eight locations to feed children and the elderly. Thank you to those who provided. We are making plans to build more community cisterns in preparation for the rain. This area of 115,000, is where so many of our children have come from. We really love these people and feel their pain. We look forward to the sustainable projects that God has placed in our hearts as we trust Him for the means that will bring life changes to so many. May God bless each one who remembers what missions is all about and for those who give knowing that “But for the grace of God, there go I." 
Blessings, Miriam and New Life family

Back at New Life

I can hardly explain the feeling of being at New Life after a long day and having the children run up to you with open arms and big smiles. The stress of the day just melts away when those little arms wrap around you. Reality soon sets in when you remember that both generators are down, the internet isn’t working, and we have over 120 kids starting school next week! There is so much hustle and bustle and excitement in the air. Just imagine preparing so many kids for the school year. They all need uniforms, books, underwear, shoes, etc. The list goes on and on! Thank God for the teams that come throughout the year and leave some of these items for us to use for school. Our bookkeeper, Karlene saves what is given to us for starting school. Thanks to each of you who have given donations to help with education. We are constantly praying for God to supply the needs of raising all of these children. It can be overwhelming at times. Several children have arrived at New Life this week. One of them is a boy that we lovingly call “Little Max”. He is two years old and both of his parents have died. He really needs our prayers. He has severe malnutrition and is constantly vomiting. He is in the hospital at this time. His grandfather is in poor condition and he is trying to raise two more siblings in the mountain village of Pestel.
Thank you so much for partnering with us and for the love that many of you have for our children and ministry. -Miriam

A team of New Life workers just returned from the mountainous areas affected by the drought. They were led by John Clark, Pastor Seide and Pastor Lyonel. The grief stricken team arrived back at New Life, saying that the half has not been told about the horrible conditions of the drought. They did, however, bring back good news about how very thankful the people who are recipients of your prayers and support are! The drought has reached the point of panic and has taken the lives of many. Because of your support, we were able to send trucks filled with water and tons of food, clothing and supplies to Pestel, bringing relief to literally thousands in the worst areas of Fond Verrette, a village with over 50,000 people. This outpouring of help has truly been the hand of God working through the hearts of His people. The people in the drought stricken areas have been praying fervently for God to send help! Community prayer in the villages is resulting in many people giving their lives to the Lord. We are all glorifying God for this miracle! In the colder mountainous areas of Oriani and Miguel the trees and brush have dried up.
It was described to us as miles and miles of barren desert. You can imagine the scene as hundreds of desperate people brought as many buckets and containers as they could carry, hoping to fill them. We continued to pass out life giving food, water and supplies into the night and began again the next morning at 6:30 am. We distributed over 7,000 gallons of water and 14,000 more gallons will be handed out this week. These villages are still suffering from the damage done by hurricane Cindy three years ago. Homes, churches and other buildings are down because they lack the resources to rebuild.

Because of your monetary donations, we were able to build two cisterns in Oraini where they have not had a sustaining rain in almost three years! We are building more permanent cisterns in other villages in hopes that rain will come soon. Keep praying for rain! We are cleaning, repairing and filling a 7,000 gallon cistern that has not had water in it for years. We have so much work to continue to do. We are trusting God for esources while evaluating long term solutions. We will keep you posted with more details and photos and ask that your prayers and love gifts continue. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! If only each of you could be here to see the reaction of the people when the water trucks and food supplies arrive. The provisions that you are sending through our ministry are saving lives and souls!
