Your donations,
matched!
 
A few weeks ago we decided to  "put our needs out there."
 
With just a line at the end of a blog post we let everyone know that we needed money to purchase land and were hoping to raise $10,000 dollars over the next two weeks.
 
Within minutes of writing that post we received word that a donor was willing to match all contributions up to $5,000.
 
We are thrilled to announce that the $5,000 goal was quickly reached and doubled. A sincere thank you to everyone that made this possible!

Please join us in praying for this family as Marck went to be with the Lord two weeks ago.
 
 
Endless possibilities

In the last two months we have had the opportunity to look at over 30 different properties in the Cap Haitien area.
 
God continues to show us the importance of being patient. We are praying about the right piece of land and are trusting His perfect timing.
 
We ask for your prayers especially for this weekend as we have a very important meeting with a landowner. We are very interested in this property. 

Current Needs

 

We can't always find everything we need in country. We are currently in need of thermometers, medical tape, band aids, and gauze.

 

If you have access to any specialized medical equipment  we would love to know what you have available!

 

Other specific needs include

an otoscope and urinalysis test strips.

 

If you are interested in donating email us at

connect@secondmilehaiti.com

 

We will get you in touch with the next person that will be traveling to Haiti.

**we're absolutely certain God is going to transform lives through SMM. We want to give everyone a chance to snatch a front row seat to watch and be a part of how this story unfolds.**
News from Haiti             12 March 2012
At the time of our last newsletter we were still in the US of A. It's hard to believe that we arrived in Haiti only two months ago.

It's been a remarkable two months. Full of fun and the excitement that comes with returning to a country that has such a strong grip on your heart. There's never a dull moment in the town of Cap Haitien.

Here's an update of what has come from our first few moments here.  
Big opportunities for SMM;
our first visitors. 
 
Last month we enjoyed a visit from two organizations whose mission and goals align with ours in such a way that they traveled all the way to Haiti to explore more! 
 
Representatives from these two organizations have shown an interest in supporting the people of Haiti in two different, but equally awesome ways.
 
 One Globe Fund is a non-profit  humanitarian organization that desires to create medical and educational facilities around the world, thus increasing treatment options for under-served populations. Investing Your Talents  is an organizaion that aims to come alongside individuals who posess the talent and desire to help their own communities by empowering them with the tools and training to do so.
 
We enjoyed hosting these two groups and are excited about  how we can join together to impact lives in Haiti.
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE FIRST TWO MONTHS
 
2009 Ford Ranger, 4x4 Diesel, 4 Door Double Cab 
It is quite the miracle that this deal came through as soon as it did. We are so fortunate to have been able to find and purchase a reliable vehicle within the first two weeks. And at such a great price!
 
Originally, we had planned to purchase a vehicle in the States and ship it to Haiti. But it was as if God whispered "wait" and the purchase was put off until we arrived in Haiti.  This saved us great lengths of time in the shipping and customs departments. 
 
Just as we were blessed by your donations to make this purchase possible, we were equally blessed by the people here in Haiti that came into our life to help us move quickly and confidently through the process. The car was thoroughly checked and test driven by the chief mechanic of the United Nations who even offered to help with future servicing needs.
 
You don't have to have a
             facility to love on people!

We are currently raising money for a mobile clinic we will be facilitating next Saturday in a nearby village. We are excited for the chance to partner with a community church there and to just plain serve people. 

This week donations made to Second Mile Ministries will go towards the purchase of medications and other medical and first aid supplies. We are trying to promote the support of local pharmacies. Not only are antibiotics and various creams extremely affordable, but supporting the local economy is a good way to help the country as a whole.

Early this week we received a donation of $190 and look at all the different supplies we were able to purchase! We would love to have the opportunity to visit the pharmacy everyday this week. Help us make that happen!
