John Wesley Child Survival Program

My newest project with Compassion is to sponsor a child survival program.  Mine is the John Wesley Child Survival Program in Cap-Haitien, Haiti.  
Cap-Haitien is a city of about 500,000 people.  I received a letter from the pastor of the John Wesley Church in Cap-Haitien.  He says the community is “chaotic … vulnerable to epidemics, natural catastrophes.”  I can’t begin to imagine living in a place like this.
In the Child Survival Program, the children are “provided health care and food.”  The Program also organizes “activities for them, endeavoring to help them develop spiritually, socially, cognitively, and physically.   The parents are educated on how to better take care of their babies.  They learn how to read and write and other skills that will enable them to generate income in the future.”
The pastor’s name is Denor Rosemond.  Please pray for him, the people who work with him, and the children and their parents who are being helped by the program.  It seems a hopeless situation, yet I know that God can save them.
