410 Bridge - Haiti
Haiti is the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, with 80% of the population living below the poverty line and over 80% unemployment. Just 2 hours north of Port-au-Prince(Haiti’s capital) is Chadirac, home to a beautiful mountainside village of 2,700 people. The majority of the population is made up of subsistence farmers. There are very few schools in the area, with only 10% of the children in Chadirac enrolled. Although many in the community attend a local church, they are still involved in voodoo and other local religious customs. Through our partnership with the 410 Bridge, we have been able to develop a long term relationship with the village of Chadirac. In this remote mountain village Bridge partners have helped to provide a school for the children as well as build relationships that will be nurtured over time to hopefully lead to spiritual, and economic growth within this community.
Chadirac “graduated” from the 410 Bridge program, and we were able to go and celebrate with them. When we first went to this community, they did not have clean water. People had gotten cholera from drinking the water that flowed from the top of the mountain. Many of the children were not able to attend school. The people of the community were unable to borrow to invest in their farms or small business ventures due to high interest rates.
All of this has now changed due to the partnership The Bridge (and a few other churches) had with them. Look at the number of students at the school that was built! The teachers in the school live in the community now instead of coming from the town at the bottom of the mountain. They have clean water. Over 1,500 people are in savings groups that make micro loans to each other and take care of each other during times of crisis. Discipleship is happening through storytelling in the mostly illiterate adult community. And they have started fish farms as a community and as individuals to help pay for the school on an ongoing basis! The Bridge will miss the beautiful people of Chadirac but we are excited about where God is leading them and will keep praying for them, knowing that they are also excited about where God is leading us and that they are praying for us, too.

Innovative Missions- Sri Lanka, Jordan, & Turkey
Jordan & Turkey: Through our partnership with Innovative Missions, we will be traveling to the countries of Jordan and Turkey to work alongside organizations who are ministering to Syrian refugees living in the country. Along with sharing the gospel this team will be focusing on trauma counseling with displaced families.
Roman Relief Project- Romania
Through our relationship with Romani Relief Project we are able to partner with a Roma (gypsy) church in Mociu, Romania, a very poor village in Northwest Romania. The Roma people are the most disadvantaged minority group in Romania, with over 90% of them living below the poverty line. Frequently they are denied the opportunity to secure housing, education, and employment. They are modern day Samaritans. While in country we are able to share the love of Jesus by helping with basic food and necessities, making repairs to homes so that they are more adequately prepared for the brutally cold winters. Our biggest point of support is with the local church. We work alongside them to help them lead their churches to meet the needs of the community they love.
