StoriesTestimonies about God's work in Haiti
Claudette was in the first group of girls that found rescue in Freedom Global Outreach when its doors opened. She grew up in a poor environment and was not given the chance to attend school. But the Bethesda home provided for her welfare including the opportunity to attend a school that sits adjacent to the orphanage property.
Claudette had a determined attitude to succeed in her education. During her first year of enrolment she completed the curriculum requirements for the first, second, and third grade. At the end of the academic year the school acknowledged her achievements and she was given the award as Student of the Year.
Samantha, Sangelica, and Micheca
After the devastating earthquake that shook Haiti in January 2010, many children were left without their parents. Freedom Global Outreach was able to provide rescue to three sisters, Samantha, Sangelica, and Micheca who lost their parents that day. Their family operated a successful business in Port-au-Prince but after leaving for work the morning of the earthquake, the parents did not return. The sisters along with one brother were taken under the care of their aunt in a remote mountain village, but inadequate care resulted in these children being afflicted with malnutrition, severe rashes and skin diseases.
Pastor Martinez and his wife Emma –- who oversee the ministry of the Bethesda Girls Home –- were made aware of their poor living situations. By God’s grace the three sisters found rescue in the Bethesda Girls Home and their brother was brought into an associate boys home. When the three sisters arrived at their new home, the oldest sister Samantha said, “I feel like I have my life back”.
Rebecca’s parents died in the 2010 earthquake when she was only one year old. She was brought to the Freedom Global Outreach home in Jacmel Haiti six months later. The house parents in Jacmel soon observed serious health conditions in young girl that realized were a result of abuse incurred before she was brought to the care of Freedom Global Outreach.
Her condition was serious enough that it required significant medical attention. She quickly received three very delicate but successful operations. After receiving this medical care, the parents now see that Rebecca is healthy, happy, and thriving in her new life at the girls home in Jacmel.
