God's Answers to our Prayers

  • Children from all over Haiti show up at our gate needing help. Some of them tell us fantastic stories of how they found GLA. We see God's hand in the lives of these children from the very beginning.
  • Even during the worst times in Haiti, our volunteers have been faithful about coming and serving the children. We have all been safe and able to carry on the work of seeing the children well cared for and in having all of their needs met. God has watched over all of us at GLA.
  • For six years, we have asked people to pray for a new adoption law for Haiti and it was passed and took effect in November of 2013.  This will totally reform adoptions in Haiti and allow for better control of the adoption process.
  • The building projects have moved along well with two staff houses, a shop, storage barn, six Toddler Houses, and a school all built for the children.  We hope to move the older children to Fort Jacques to live sometime in November 2014.
  • We have expanded our ministries in the last few years.  We have also needed more staff to run the programs and God has sent several families to Haiti to help us.
  • God has provided sponsors for the children housed at GLA from closed Haitian orphanages.  Pray that we can continue to find sponsors to help cover these additional costs of the childcare.
