The Haitian Lutheran Mission Project has merged with Mission Haiti in Davie
FL in order to continue serving the Jeremie District of Haiti. Over the past 16 plus years, your
donations provided food, clean drinking water, new/clean clothing, eyeglasses, medical
attention, medications, school supplies, school buildings, desks, vehicles and friendship to the
Jeremie District. Please keep in mind that your entire donation to the Haitian Lutheran Mission
Project (now Mission Haiti) is spent to meet the needs of the very poorest people in Haiti. The
funds are not sent through a third-party organization and there are NO administrative costs.
The teams pay their own travel expenses and all of the board members are volunteers. We
pray for your continued support. Please address all donations to: Mission Haiti, 3850 S.
University Dr. #290171, Davie, FL 33329. Thank you. ~Sue Gross

Below is an excerpt from a letter that we received from Trinity
Hope our partner in Haiti. The entire letter is posted on the bulletin board.
God provided a way to expand the feeding programs in Haiti during 2021. By his grace and
blessings, we are now providing a noon meal to over 50,000 children, teachers and cooks in over
240 Christian schools throughout Haiti. As a dedicated supporter of the work we do, you are truly
making a difference in the lives of these children. Thank you for helping us feed these children in
both body and soul.
