From For His Glory Adoption Outreach:
"We are pleased to announce the 2nd Annual "Hike for Their Home." On July 18th, at 3:30 am, a team from Cheyenne Mountain Resort is dedicating themselves to hike the 14,000 ft Pike's Peak in Colorado Springs, Colorado all in the name of the children and families of Maison des Enfant des Dieu orphanage in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. Last year the group hiked and helped with the rent of the facility. This year they are even more excited to help with the purchase of land and the building project for the orphanage."
I am late on this post as the event that I am talking about actually happened last Saturday, BUT anyone can donate to the cause at any time by going here: http://www.forhisgloryoutreach.org/hike_for_their_home.
It is all about raising money to build on the land that has been purchased in the countryside so that the Maison des Enfants de Dieu orphanage in Haiti can have a new home. But not just any home, a faith filled community where the children who cannot be adopted can be raised in a setting where they will receive love, education and life skills in safe building structures outside of the city center. To hear the details as written by the orphanage director himself go to Pierre's blog at http://www.forhisgloryoutreach.org/pierre_s_blog
Here are pictures that we took of the current orphanage facility which they rent, the first shows the building which houses the infants and toddlers and the second is the building that has school rooms on top for the older children and sleeping rooms on the bottom:
Here is a bridge being rebuilt in the street just outside the door of the orphanage, the previous bridge fell below during the earthquake. On the other side of the bridge is piled of accumulated garbage since the earthquake.
Now here is the land that has been purchased to build the new community. There is much work to be done but it is promising and hopeful that with the help of many it can happen.
