About Haiti

Haiti, also known as the Republic of Haiti, has a current population of over 9 million people and is the size of the state of Maryland.  The current language is both Haitian Creole and French, with French mainly spoken in schools.

The Haitian people have struggled for years.  Historically they have struggled against the French for their independence, which they gained in 1803.  Politically they have struggled as they implemented a brand new constitution for our citizens to live and elected more than a dozen governments.  Religiously they have struggled against the chains of Voodoo.

Today, Haiti ranks 154 out of 177 countries on the United Nations Development Program’s list of human development.

Haiti is in the western one-third of the island of Hispaniola between the Caribbean Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean. This small, tropical country is west of the Dominican Republic and is south of the island of Cuba.

Many missionary have been making the difference for Christ in our country. We add our voices to theirs. We desire the message of love, hope, and forgiveness of our Lord to cross over the mountains in order to help reach the unreached for His glory.

Join us as we work to bring the Hope and Light of Christ to this nation whom we love.
