In the spring of 2018, Albright Church came alongside our Haitian partners to partially build a secure enclosure around a 10 acre piece of property owned by the AEM (our national church partner in Haiti) that up to this point has been used solely for housing guests and medical staff for the Gens de Nantes Clinic. What is the big deal you might ask? Well, an enclosure is a wonderful blessing! In the hands of a young man with an agriculture degree and a BIG vision and desire to move his community forward, an enclosed property is a HUGE BLESSING.
A young man with an agriculture degree, training in Farming God’s Way and experience in growing rice to sell at market, he continues to grow in His gifting. As the enclosure construction progresses, He is already developing the vision for next steps. He desires to use the property to build learning plots, and begin training local farmers. Hernso understands the need to diversify crops and to work to increase the health of the soil for greater growth. He desires to teach and encourage his community that they can grow more than just peanuts!
We pray that God will continue to raise up others in the community alongside Hernso who will be willing to work the land, teach others to do the same, and be a leading voice for agricultural development in the region of Gens de Nantes. The land has so much potential, but needs much work and care.
We praise God for raising up leaders like Hernso in the community, who want to see their community move towards greater food security, and who recognize the potential of the land God has provided. It is wonderful to come alongside in partnership to support local leaders who are bringing vision and hope to their community as they follow Jesus.
Please pray for Hernso, pray for others in the community to catch the vision for this property, and pray that together we will continue to steward the resources God has given us in Haiti, and in Canada well so that He would be given glory through our partnership!
