Many Haitians feel blessed if they own a Bible, and it is unlikely that each family member would have their own.
In my home growing up I remember Bibles, Christian magazines, books, and in particular a 10-volume set called “The Bible Story” that contained about 2,000 pages of stories. Undoubtedly, these resources helped to form my understanding of God and His Word.
We are thankful that we were able to give all our preschool through eighth graders a Christian book at the start of the school year. Some of the books are simply for reading and discussing—like “Pilgrim’s Progress.” Some are Bible stories, and this year we found a fourth grade Bible curriculum covering the giving of the law in the Old Testament. Our Bord-Mer fourth grade teacher, Samuel Saint Louis, says that he appreciates using the curriculum because it is well written and it̓s helpful having the pictures to show the students while teaching the material. We now want to buy library books for each school in Haiti. Thank you in advance for your generous donations to purchase these books. ~Rachel DeTellis
