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 over six years, we asked people to pray for a new adoption law for Haiti. In November 2013, it was finally passed and took effect. This began a much needed reform for adoptions in Haiti overall and allows for better control of the entire process.
The main building project continues to be the gueshouse and all the associated work required to ensure it is built per the plans and in the most effective and efficient manner. Pray for the safety of all who work on its construction as it many times means working on scaffolding and ladders on building's second floor landing, which is already high off the ground.
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.
