A big thank-you goes out to Loving Orphans Global for letting me partner with them!! If you would like to donate to my work in the beautiful land of Haiti you can go to or simply text the words with the message being the dollar amount. It is simple, secure, and tax-deductable. Thank-you to everyone who is helping Acts 26:18 become possible. I will be in Haiti tomorrow!! Excited to see what all the Lord has in store. Praying for guidance, clarity, and the open doors to make disciples! God is good. His will be done.

Assuming you spent nothing to build your house and you spend nothing to maintain it then you could choose to buy utilities. Electricity (if it’s available in your town), running water (which you have to have a well and pump for), and garbage services (only available in big cities), is $20 a month. You have to feed yours
