We are a mission in Haiti that cares for children. Our children live in the mission. We provide food, water, medical and an education. We are a Christian mission house that loves our children with all our heart. Every day the kids are growing stronger and are truly blessed. Some were abandoned by their families others lost both parents. We are they're parents now. We wake up each morning to the sound of music playing. After morning prayers the children start they're day with great anticipation and are hopeful. They know each day they have food and water. Can come to talk to us about anything. They dream, laugh and play. They study hard preparing for their future. We help nearby neighbors and our community. Our children have learned musical instruments and painting. All our so smart and love to learn. They are all strong in the Christian faith. We are making a positive impact of their life. We are a mission of a great dream to continue having a strong impact of love and hope to the kids and community of Haiti.  To continue to provide our children with their daily necessities physically, mentally and spiritually. This is a great work and calling that God has placed for us to do. It is our lifelong work, passion and calling from God.


Haiti is a beautiful country that needs love and encouragement.  We need help to continue to bless our kids and our community. For our kids to become stronger and to become great leaders in Haiti. Before the kids came to us in Mission Light of Life our kids had no hope. They felt as though they just existed but no life. Some were on the streets begging for food. Never went to the doctor. No education. Everything has changed for the better. They are well cared for now. Loved, safe and have hope.

Our mission and one of our goals is to help bless more children and families hungry and the poverty. We would like to build a bakery that can provide jobs and help the community. and homes, shelter for families and poverty


To encourage and be a place of love, hope, and support to those in need. To continue being a blessing to work by Faith.

We are thankful for everyone's prayers, love and support of Mission Light of Life . God bless you all and your families.

Thank you
