In order to live and work in Haiti we are greatly dependent on the gifts and financial support of friends and family … or even generous strangers.
While we work with Heartline Ministries, we will be living entirely on support for all of our routine expenses. Our regular expenses will include things like food, utilities, medical, transportation, as well as maintenance, and travel expenses.
Despite the poverty in Haiti, the cost of living is actually quite high. As a small island, much of the products used in Haiti must be imported (which adds to their cost). Items such as food, household goods, medicine, and gasoline are shipped into Haiti from around the world.
If you are interested in donating to help support us while we are in Haiti, you can do that in a couple different ways:
1. Automatic withdrawal donations: Print & complete the Automatic Withdraw Form.
2. Send a check: Mail your check to: Heartline Ministries, PO Box 898, Sunnyside, WA 98944. Donations need to have our name noted on the check.
3. Paypal donation: Monthly or one-time in the amount of your choice. If you have trouble or questions, please email Allison at [email protected]. Note: Donations made through this PayPal will incur a 2.9% fee which is covered by Heartline.
*Heartline will provide a tax donation receipt for all of these donation methods.
It is an extremely humbling thing to be dependent on the gifts of others for your daily support. As we felt the Lord drawing us to Haiti, we looked hard for ways to avoid having to ask people for money. But the fact is that there are very few jobs in Haiti that pay enough for our family to live with even a very basic level of health, safety, and comfort. Without the ongoing support of people who believe in the work we’re doing, we would be unable to serve in Haiti. We believe that God has called every believer to be serving in missions. Some will go … and some will send. For this season in our lives we believe that God is leading us to go. We are trusting that God is leading others to help send us with their financial gifts and prayers.
