May has ushered in a plethora of things such as new life and the blooming of beautiful flowers. Along with the refreshing occurrences of spring, God has also brought forth a season of breathtaking miracles for our ministry. With each new day it seems like we are constantly rejoicing and utterly captivated with the thought of, “How Big is Our God!” To give you an idea of His amazing hand of provision for the poor and orphaned children in Haiti, and the incredible things that have recently taken shape through Coreluv, I would love to highlight a few for you.
Beginning this month we had an anonymous donor commit to match everything raised dollar for dollar up to 50k. What a way to kick off the month of May! Our Coreluv team has worked tirelessly on everything from organizing 5k runs to the distribution of almost a thousand cans to local children and youth ministries for them in return to fill with spare change. One of our most recent events was a 5k run hosted by a local college group in Magnolia, Texas that brought in over $6,000 dollars. With our matching donor, it will be multiplied to TWELVE! Truly this is a month of MIRACLES for us!
If I could brag on anybody it would most definitely be the LOCAL CHURCHES who have sown so sacrificially into Coreluv! To see entire families (parents, teenagers, children) enthusiastically stepping up to the plate to defend the orphan has blown us away! What a testimony of the bride of Christ exemplifying true religion (James1:27).
Last but not least, we are in the planning stages of building our first orphanage from the ground up. Three miles outside of Gonaives, Haiti in a remote village called Myan lays approximately 12 acres of land that was miraculously given to Coreluv. Currently the local village people walk for miles to collect enough water for their families each week. The first thing we would like to do on this new land is dig two water wells. This would mean water not only for Coreluv’s future orphanage, but for the community of Myan as well. What a HUGE impact we could make in this city! Myan is also in need of a school, a medical clinic and most importantly a church where the GOSPEL of Jesus Christ can be introduced! Because of our May fundraiser, we will be well on our way to providing these resources and restoring hope to this impoverished area. Just a week ago my husband Mike received a random phone call from a couple who “heard from a friend of a friend” that Coreluv was in need. I LOVE when God works this way! The conversation ended with their commitment to donate the finances needed to build one of the wells in Myan. Because everything raised this month is being doubled, they in turn will provide for not one but TWO water wells, exactly the number of wells we need! Isn’t God amazing! I LOVE how ‘faith building’ this journey has been for us!
Please continue to pray and rejoice with my family and the Coreluv team in the incredible power of God as we prepare to rescue many children and reach an entire community with the love and saving power of Jesus Christ!
