Grandview's Haiti Mission

The mission started with a challenge to build a church in a third world country. A challenge that many thought was impossible for a small Cowley County country church. That challenge, made by Pastor Samuel Lee to his congregation at Grandview United Methodist Church in Winfield, was in 2008.

God and Pastor Lee eventually led Grandview to Haiti and 60 orphaned children at Big House Orphanage. The Mission, to positively change the lives of Haitian children, in turn, has also positively forever changed the lives of the congregation of Grandview. Several years later, we now have 80 plus Haitian children as an extended family.

The Grandview missions have been involved with two organizations called "Living Water for the World" and "Solar Under the Sun." Grandview is teaming up with these two organizations and other mission groups from around the USA to install solar-powered water filtration systems at several sites in Haiti, including the Big House orphanage. By providing clean water to these communities, the children of the orphanages and the local residents have a much better opportunity to live healthy lives in the light of the Lord.

Recently, Grandview is assisting a new farming organization in Haiti called PHF (Planting for Hope and Future). This organization was founded by one of our Haitian friends, Frantz Dorcel Ady, whom we had hired as an interpreter on previous mission projects. God showed Ady a vision about helping his country. Ady is implementing that vision and PHF is changing the way farming is done in Haiti. Utilizing drip irrigation, polyculture, and other farming techniques, the crop yield has increased dramatically as well as creating many jobs. See the H4H newsletter link below for updates. H4H (Harvesting 4 Haiti) is an organization in Ohio that provides financial assistance to PHF until the project farms become self-sustaining.

Grandview is blessed to have a God who gives strength to do His work and a community of people to support these missions.

Psalm 31:2,6,12-17,24

2 Incline your ear to me, rescue me speedily! Be a rock of refuge for me, a strong fortress to save me!
6 You hate those who pay regard to vain idols; but I trust in the LORD.
12 I have passed out of mind like one who is dead; I have become like a broken vessel.
13 Yes, I hear the whispering of many -- terror on every side! -- as they scheme together against me, as they plot to take my life.
14 But I trust in youe, O LORD, I say, "You are my God."
15 My times are in your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies and persecutors!
16 Let your face shine on your servant; save me in your steadfast love!
17 Let me not be put to shame, O LORD, for I call on you; let the wicked be put to shame, let them go dumbfounded to Sheol.
24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all you who wait for the LORD!
