Threadgill: July 2017

In the past 30 years, Fishers of Men Ministries International has seen God move in amazing ways in the lives of the Haitian people. There have been challenging times, most recently the horrific earthquake in January of 2010 or the devastating hurricane, Matthew in October of 2016. These catastrophic events were an opportunity for FOMM to be the hands and feet of Christ to bring aid and comfort to hundreds of hurting people who needed to know they were loved and not alone. With the help of our friends and partners, who responded in love financially or with their time to come to Haiti to be a part of the relief efforts, Fishers of Men Ministries Int’l, was able to help rebuild homes and churches for the areas of the island that were destroyed by these natural disasters.

FOMM has planted 60 churches throughout the nation with Church On The Rock Port Au Prince our main church with an attendance of 6,000.  FOMM has planted multiple schools throughout the nation of Haiti including 4 bible schools.  Our mission is to educate and prepare the next generation to be godly citizens of His kingdom and future leaders who will make a difference in their tomorrows. The Lord has orchestrated an opportunity only He could have done with The Discovery Channel for Morning Star Christian Academy, located in Port Au Prince which we are thrilled about. In the upcoming months we will be working with The Discovery Channel to integrate their supplemental curriculum into our classrooms expanding our scope of education to digitally bring the world to our students using laptops and projectors. We are in the process of raising the money needed to purchase the necessary laptops, projectors and screens.

FOMM started a feeding program through our schools to provide nutritious meals to nearly 3,500 children, five days a week for ten months a few years ago. This outreach continues to grow past our expectation and we are always looking for new friends and partners to help provide the means to feed these hungry children. The Lord is using this outreach and many others like our annual Mardi Gras Crusade and Haiti Kids Christmas to reach so many people young and old with His love and truth. It has been an honor for our ministry to serve these wonderful people.

Every year we host several teams of short term missionaries from all over the US and Canada who have a heart to serve the people of Haiti. Some teams are medical, some are hold youth rallies and some come to minister during the Mardi Gras Crusade. If you would like to see what life is like on the mission field and have a heart to serve we would love to have you.  Our website, www.fomhaiti.org, has more information regarding short term missions. Be sure to check it out if you are interested!

We look forward to the future with excitement and anticipation of what the Lord has for Fishers of Men Ministries Int’l. We cannot do what the Lord has called us to do in Haiti without our friends and partners. Thank you for helping us make a difference and take a Nation for Jesus. We know this is good ground to sow in. We are standing and believing for you a 100 fold return on all you have and will sow into this ministry.

God Bless you~
