WIDOWS MITE MINISTRY
Jesus lives in the forgotten. He has taken up residence in the ignored. He has built a mansion amidst the ill. If we want to see God, we must go among the broken and beaten. There we will see Him.
Our Widows Mite began after a visiting medical team observed many widows weak, malnourished and in poor health. Their stories were heart-breaking. Many went days without food and fainted frequently. Compounding the problem, the widows were elderly, blind or disabled and had no way of supporting themselves. A response was needed!
Each widow is visited in their home hugged, listened to, encouraged, prayed for and given a promise “we’ll be back”. We support widows in the villages of Minoterie, Belladere, and Thomazeau. Our program provides food to alleviate their physical hunger, fellowship for their loneliness, medical care and hope through Jesus Christ to relieve their sorrow. In addition, we have provided: clothing, shoes, blankets, shelter, Bibles, chickens, goats, sewing machines with fabric– you name it we have collected and sent it! As our resources grow, we are addressing other needs that our widows have, like housing and access to clean water
Monthly support is $25 to help provide the basic needs of our widows/widowers. It takes 2 supporters for a total of $50 to provide food for an entire month. Widows with children may need more. You may follow our ministry on Facebook at Widows Mite Haiti for updates and other ways that you can participate.
