Dear Friend,

As we approach the holiday giving season, UMC #GivingTuesday is an opportunity to celebrate the spirit of cheerful Christian giving by making an online donation to HAITI CHILDREN PROJECT through The Advance. When you make an online donation on December 2 you will unite with others to give back! It shows the world the transformational power that can happen in one day . . . when Methodists are united.

Last year on UMC #GivingTuesday, United Methodists collectively raised a record $6.5 million online through The Advance. We received many donations, and thanks in part to those gifts, we were able to provide for the needs of these special children in Haiti.

As always, when you give to us through The Advance, 100 percent of your gift directly supports our ministry; overhead costs are covered through other channels.

Please make an online gift to HAITI CHILDREN PROJECT on 12/2 UMC #GivingTuesday. at www.umcmission.org/give

Thank you so much for your faithful support. We hope you and your friends will join us by making a generous online gift online on December 2.

Grace and peace,

Janet & Wade McGuinn

Wade and Janet McGuinn made a recent trip to Port-au-Prince, Haiti to visit with (7) seven of our university students in the Next Generation Program. This is what they had to say about the trip:

Our visit with the students was encouraging and informative. They continue to amaze us with their ability to succeed, in spite of their circumstances. We enjoyed dinner together and discussed some things that we could help them with. Dieuces Chery shared with us that he is very homesick. He said that he hasn’t seen his family in a very long time, since moving to PAP for school. We asked him to give us a budget how much it would cost to travel home to Jeremie. In response, he told us that it is $40.00 for the, approximately 6 hour, bus trip to his home. While we focus on their education, we realize that keeping their spirits up, can go a long way in their ability to be successful in school. One of the students, Yvon Sarah, who does not have a sponsor, shared his concern for his ability to continue school. I told him that God knows of someone who can help, we just don’t know who they are yet. In anticipation that God would meet his needs, he wrote the following letter (his English is very good):

Hello, my name is Yvon Sarah, I am Haitian. I was born in Roseaux. My birthday is 27 March, 1991. My father is dead when I was still a little boy. Now, I am a student at University Quisqueya. I am studying engineer since 2012. I would like to graduate in civil engineer, so I would be very happy to have you as sponsor. I am so proud that I am a student of Next Generation. I would like to thank you for the donation you give to Next Generation. I pray God to keep you well, to protect you and bless you.

Love for you, Yvon Sarah
