Restoration Farm Construction has Begun!

One of the primary goals of 1013 Missions is to help bring One Family Foundation (church, orphanage, and school) to self-sustaining independence, while improving the quality of life and future prospects for the community One Family serves.  Our major project this year is the construction of our Restoration Farm.

We are working with Pastor Kesnel to take an unproductive plot of land and restore it into a working farm that will grow produce, sustain a small herd of goats and a chicken coop.   The fruits of this farm will be used to enrich the diets of the children at One Family Children's Home, while providing the older children with the opportunity to develop the skills of farming, including selling these fruits in the market.  In a country with little industry,  life skills such as these provide the primary source of income for many Haitians.   Additionally, we pray the farm will eventually include a housing facility for the oldest children exiting the orphanage, but not yet ready for life on their own.

This week, thanks to generous sponsorships from An Orphan's Prayer and Community Christian Church Lemont Campus, construction on the farm has begun!  Please pray with us for the success of this project; that it may honor God and serve his people.  If you'd like to be a part of this project, you can make a donation through the PayPal link on the right.
