My boy, Hillaire

About twenty years ago we began sponsoring, along with our daughter’s family, a baby boy  in Haiti at the Ebenezer Glenn Orphanage.

He’s all grown up now and what a fine Christian young man he is! After high school he went on to become a lab technician. He is still at Ebenezer Glenn Orphanage and works in the health clinic there. I’m so proud of him.

He’s lived at Ebenezer Glenn Orphanage all these years. I finally got to meet him when I went down in 1993. We were both so excited and thrilled to finally meet in person. We spent as much time together as possible and we both cried like babies when I had to leave to go back home.

It’s very rewarding to sponsor financially and pray for a person over the years and finally see them as productive, Christian adults.

    How lovely to know what has become of Hillaire. It is nice to see him at work in the lab and to know that he is giving back to the orphanage that raised him.
