Your help is still needed for Christmas gifts to children in Haiti
by Lourdes Valladares

Merry Christmas, or "jwaye Nowel" in Haitian-Creole to all of our friends! During the hustle and bustle these days, let's not forget this Holy season, thanking God for sending us His Son Jesus. 

Please read on as we need your help in making this Christmas a very special one for children in Haiti.  Our current project in partnership with Love a Child is to provide gifts to the students of Miracle Village School in Fond Parisien, Haiti.  I first introduced this project via our newsletter in the early part of this year and again in our October newsletter. (Note:  You may also skip the background and just scroll down to where you see this sign (*) to learn how you can help right now!  Thank you)

The dolls (pictured above) and soccer balls are on their way to Haiti, all 307 of them, for the children of the new Miracle Village School (October 2011 newsletter, New School opens). We thank the donors from the bottom of our hearts that have given $1,620 so far toward the gifts.  We are, however, needing an additional $1,080 to cover for the remainder of costs of the soccer balls, dolls, shipping fees from the manufacturers, and fabric and miscellaneous supplies that were used for sewing the dolls' uniforms which are just like the ones the girls wear! (see photo below).  But like the founders of Love a Child Bobby and Sherry Burnette often say, "Faith doesn't know that we ain't got the money!"  So ahead we went and ordered the full quantity of dolls and soccer balls by faith as the shipment needed to leave our office by mid-November (which it did!)  Many, many hands took part in making this possible; too many to mention at this time. (I don't want to leave anyone out, but you know who you are and we thank God for you). Frank and I drove to Fort Myers last month to drop off the gifts, where LAC prepare their ocean containers for Haiti. I don't doubt for one minute that Sherry already has a team of volunteers waiting to inflate all 150 soccer balls as soon as they arrive! beautiful girls 3 But, friends, we're still short of funds. 


(*) We are asking that 122 persons reading this newsletter can each donate $10.00 to reach this goal.  Your gift is tax-deductible and of course, you may donate more as your special year-end gift to help us continue reaching out to the children of Haiti and we will provide a receipt for tax purposes. There are various ways you may donate.  If you have a Paypal account, you may send funds to our email, you may call our office at (727) 526-2578 to donate via credit card, or you may mail your check to Project Child, 3133 49th Street North, Saint Petersburg, FL  33710.  Please help a chilboy with tire toy cropped 2d like the boy pictured here and imagine his joy when he receives his own soccer ball this Christmas! My heart broke when I took this photo this past October. Help us to start the new year debt-free so that we can continue doing God's work.  Thank you, and have a blessed Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ!

Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 



Project Child was founded in 1999 by Frank and Lourdes Valladares after they were called to service in the Dominican Republic in the island of Hispanola for 11 years.  Though the geography of their service has changed to the western part of the island (Haiti), they believe that their calling to service goes beyond any circumstances or stormy seasons of ministry. This newsletter is dedicated with fondness to the children of Casa de Luz, Santo Domingo, DR.
