Christmas Letter from Père Vile
Dear Brothers and Sisters and Friends,
Christmas is a special time to wish happy holidays and a happy new year to those who are dear to us. It is one of the magical and wonderful times to express our gratitude toward all those who have done good things for us. Aware of your love for the people of La Gonâve and the impact of your ministry in their life, I would like on their behalf, in this special season of rejoicing, to say THANK YOU and wish to all our sister churches, every one of you, your families, and all our friends and benefactors — a blessed Christmas and a very Happy New Year 2022 full of happiness.
Beloved brothers and sisters, know that you give meaning to our life; you are part of our life. Where we feel abandoned by the leaders of our own country, particularly on this seemingly abandoned island that is la Gonâve; where we feel alone with the challenges of daily life, you always show yourselves available to us, as sisters and brothers in the Lord. Because of you, all the ten (10) existing schools in the partnership still providing good education and the employees are monthly and regularly paid. A new school, a middle school, is under construction in Palma and we are making great progress with hope its doors will open the coming summer. The Bill Rice clinic provides health care service in Nouvelle Cite and through mobile clinics in the remote areas too. Other activities or programs such adult literacy, goat, microcredit……are also operational. Thousands of families survive because of you. Thank you for all of this and for all the gestures of love you have shown towards us. God bless you and Merry Christmas to all of you!
La Gonâve, Haiti
