Pictured here, children in our HOLD Home Orphanage enjoyed a special celebration and meal with Pastor Exante!  Pastor Exante, one of our primary ministry partners in Haiti, recently visited our HOLD schools and Orphanage in Port de Paix.  He was there for the annual crusade, which was a very successful event!  Students in our Haiti schools are gearing up for testing that will take place next month before their summer break.  And residents in our Orphanage continue learning and growing everyday.  With 18 now in high school, needs continue to grow.  Continue praying for Haiti and all of our brothers and sisters there.  Gang violence in the capital city of Port au Prince grows more prevalent causing further problems for those who live there.

In Jamaica, at our Jamaica Christian School for the Deaf, 99% of their students have now returned to campus!  They have successfully revived their vegetable garden and are already enjoying the fruits of their labor.  Many staff members have left, creating much more work for those that remain; please pray for continued provision and the ability to hire more teachers!  At our Victory Christian Fellowship preschool in Jamaica, funds were raised to purchase a couple of new computers.  Thank you to all who gave to make this possible!

Students at Kairos in Guatemala are still preparing to return to school in person.  And the school is looking to grow their campus!  With property available nearby, they hope to expand their campus upon students’ return.

Thank you sponsors for all you give!  Your donations and ongoing support make the ministry of HOLD possible.  Thank you for your generosity!

Gratefully in His Hold,
