Strong Tower Haiti
Caring for Orphans in Jesus’ Name
Strong Tower partners with the local church in Caracol to care for orphaned and vulnerable children in their community.
A New Family for Ermanot
Dalla lived with her grandmother in Caracol where they were members of the Church of the Redeemer. When Dalla was five, her grandmother became ill. As her illness progressed, she began to talk with Pastor Payot about Dalla’s future. Dalla and her grandma began to visit Strong Tower together, spending afternoons with the other girls, playing and having snacks. When her grandma passed away, the church leadership brought Dalla to her new home where her new family was waiting for her with open arms.
A New Family for Ermanot
Ermanot was 13 years old when Brenda first met him at Vacation Bible School in Caracol, Haiti. She gave him her Bible because he had a desire to learn to read and speak English. Prior to going to Haiti her grandson, Kinser, told her God was going to show her a young man that needed to hear Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” She believed this young man was Ermanot so she delivered the message from Kinser.
Ermanot is now 19 years old. He is a crew leader for VBS and serves faithfully in his church. Last summer Ermanot showed Brenda the Bible that she gave him years ago and the pages are nearly worn out from use. Kinser and Ermanot have formed a relationship through videos, letters and occasional phone calls. Even though they have never met their hearts are joined in Christian brotherhood and Brenda looks forward to an opportunity for them to meet face to face someday.
Life at the Strong Tower Family Home
Because God’s design for children is the family, Strong Tower embraces a family-style model of care in our residential program. The orphan home is a duplex facility, with each side able to care for up to 10 children. 19 girls who once were lost and alone now call Strong Tower home.
Daily life at Strong Tower includes giggles and playtime, homework and singing, picking fresh vegetables from the garden, and caring for the animals. The girls enjoy church activities, especially choir and Vacation Bible School.
The girls will not age-out of care. They are family…and they are in their forever family.
Caring for All of Caracol
Orphan care is community care. When families are healthy and strong, children thrive. Family strengthening initiatives are continuing to be developed to help children and families stay strong and stay together.
Strong Tower partners with Meds and Food for Kids to provide healthy snacks for 400 children at the local school. Can you help? A gift of $24 provides a nutritious snack for one child for an entire school year.
Strong Tower hosts Vision Trips, Medical and Dental missions, Vacation Bible School, Construction and Maintenance missions. Prayerfully consider missioning with us. Your skills and your heart are needed.
“Pure and faultless religion is this, caring for orphans and widows in their distress …”
