Following the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Haiti on January 12, 2010, TouchGlobal swiftly responded and has continued to send crisis responders to serve in Haiti ever since. We have established a presence and plan on staying here for a long time, so we thought it wise to set up a blog that family, friends, supporters, and teams can check to find first-hand information about life and ministry at the Haitian Queen (the TouchGlobal Crisis Response headquarters in Gressier, Haiti).

This blog will be updated regularly by various team members and staff.

Operation Love the Children of Haiti

Please keep Aaron in your prayers. He is a partner, who we are building the orphanage, The Shepherds House, for. He has malaria and is in the Hospital.

Jasmine and Greg decided to come down to Haiti to start an orphanage a few years ago. They now have 40+ kids who are all adoptable. Walking into their orphanage is different than most in Haiti. There is life and joy there. Since the earthquake, Jasmine and Greg lost almost everything. They are staying on a piece of land and all of the children are in tents. We are helping to build them a few shelters, especially with huricane season right around the corner. Right now, we are building them an all purpose room where they will have school, church and shelter if it storms. Touch Global teams will also go over every tuesday and thursday to play with the children at the orphanage.

This is where they live. There are probably 6 or 7 rows of these tents.

This will be the all purpose room. They started last week.

This is at the end of the second day.

This is it by the end of the fourth day.

  1. Lorey, thanks for sharing. The progress in just two days is incredible--way to keep up the good, hard work. It is good things are coming along so quickly before hurricane season.

    Jasmine and Greg's kids were by far and away the happiest I saw while I was in Haiti. I think Jasmine is a cross between Mother Teresa and Jane Goodall.

    Please keep posting!
