Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.” James 1:27
As a young man in his late teens, God impressed upon Michael’s heart the desire to help the people in his home village of Minoterie and other parts of rural Haiti. Out of this vision, Real Love Ministries International was born. From a small rental house to our main campus that sits on a former garbage dump and our new mountain campus, God has raised up a place of love and hope for many!
RLMI has had the privilege and blessing of partnering with churches and other Haiti-based ministries along with churches and individuals in the United States to equip Haitian-led ministry in several rural villages. Presently our core ministries are our Orphanage, Transition Program and Widows Mite. Due to the recent rise in gang violence in Haiti our Real Love Academy, Real Love Medical Clinic and Word of Life-Real Love Church are currently suspended. It is our prayer that we will one day soon resume and grow all our ministries.
In addition to supporting the work of these ministries our visiting Mission Teams (when it is safe enough to do so) assist our Haitian staff with ministry to prostitutes, prisoners, evangelism, outreach initiatives, pastoral and discipleship training and construction projects. Clean water projects and economic sustainability projects are also a part of our expanding vision to positively impact Haiti with the Real Love of Jesus!
