How One Man’s Generosity is Changing Children’s Lives

Some words just can’t tell the whole story.  There are hundreds that given generously to help make an impact on the people and communities of Haiti alongside Elevating Christian Ministries.  Macho Cruz and his family are just one of them.

They generously donated the funds needed to build a bread oven in the school at Lascahobas, Haiti where ECM has partnered in feeding 200 kids daily at the school.  This area is in desperate need of nutritional food, clean water, and sanitation.  Pastor Rodney Decamp has sacrificed his personal resources over the last 10 years to help build the school and launch the church that meets on the same property.  His humility of heart and focus on the Kingdom of God is so evident in his actions.

When Macho Cruz reached out to see how they could support the efforts of ECM in Haiti as a family, the Bread Oven project was an opportune need and so they said “yes”.  With their gift the bread oven was built and used at the end of the school year and now the school will begin the 2017 fall classes with another level of nutritional support for the community.  We are also working with Pastor Rodney to explore income-generating opportunity to help support the school including a local market investment and a bracelet assembly facility.

This is all part of the impact of a “yes” from the Cruz family.

ECM has also had the privilege of building a kitchen around the Bread Oven and the church which sits next to the school.  It is with grateful hearts that we are able help bring the love of Jesus and begin to work a sustainable solution to the poverty in this area alongside Pastor Rodney Decamp. 

Thank you to all those who partner with us daily in bringing the Hope of Christ to Haiti and beyond!
