Stories of Hope | Many hands make the load lighter

In a month filled with gratitude, we are excited to share these two inspiring stories with you and give thanks to God for all He has done and is continuing to do. Thank you for your partnership. We hope these stories inspire you as much as they have us! 

Last month 120 bags of food were delivered to local Dominican families who were in need. This was one of our largest distributions done in the DR, and two of our North American missionaries were able to be a part of it for the first time. 

“It was such an honor getting to work with our team for the recent food distribution,” said Paige Oberlag. “As we've been out of the country for a majority of this year, it was so sweet to finally get to work with our team again! Things are starting to feel kind of back to normal here in the city, but the need for food nonetheless is still very much present. There's a Haitian proverb that I learned back while I was in Haiti—men anpil chay pa lou—meaning, many hands make the load lighter. What a gift it was to see all the working hands in this process, from the generosity of those of you who gave, to our local staff who purchased, bagged, and counted every item, to pastors who went and prayed with every person receiving needed groceries. We don't always get to see the full process, and we still may never know everything God has been doing through the previous distributions, but what a sweet day to catch a small glimpse and be reminded of His sovereignty and that He is still placing all the pieces together." 


We’re delighted to share that last month, 193 young men and women graduated from our School of Hope in Haiti. While this is something to be proud of in any country or culture, it is particularly so in Haiti, where the majority of people never attend high school, much less graduate. These men and women have worked diligently, motivated by the hope of a better future for themselves, their families, and their country.

Your support of Mission of Hope has changed the narrative for these men and women and their families. With diplomas in hand, they are celebrating what God has done and also what He will do—in and through them.
