C4L interns sharing the Gospel with special needs children in HaitiThank you for praying for our Cause 4 Life interns who have been serving this week in Haiti at two churches and a special needs orphanage. We’ve received a great report from our Internship Director who writes from Haiti: “These orphans with special needs are rarely visited, but we’re here to show Christ. We’ve been sharing the gospel through songs, skits and crafts, expressing God’s love through a much needed warm embrace. You should see the joy on the children’s faces!” While in Haiti, the interns are providing training in special education and occupational therapy to caregivers at the orphanage as well as teachers and parents at two churches. Many families affected by disability don’t yet attend church, but the team is helping the churches reach local families by providing the very first special needs classroom in Haiti! Please continue to keep the interns in your prayers as this life-changing experience confirms their call to serve children and families affected by disability!

Joni I loved your post about the Interns in Haiti working with children with special needs. I would like to encourge you to blog and maybe interview people with learning disabilities. I was dignosed as being developmentally delayed, i had delayed speech and could not talk, i had delayed motor skills, I process things and I learn slowly. Doctors and teachers said i could never learn and that there was no hope for me in ever learning. I had some excellent special education teachers, that taught me well and were patient with me, just like these interns are doing with these precious children created in God's image in Haiti. Thank you for these encouraging Blogs and post!

Dear Joni, James 1:27 came into my mind while reading your update. "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this:to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world."(NIV) JAF is doing a excellent work in Haiti.
