Tlucek Family: Haiti



 Our Primary Goal: To faithfully share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, through words and actions, to each person (especially each child) who enters our gates

 Our Mission: Maranatha Children’s Ministries was established to serve and minister to children, in the name and power of Jesus Christ, to bring glory to God.

 Our Vision: To provide an environment which will nurture the development of hope, joy, love, mercy and grace in each child’s life; for the healthy development of family and community relationships, future educational and career opportunities, and service to God and others

 God has given us the beautiful challenge and privilege of serving just over 150 students in our school this year. He has provided our needs: Oodles of eggs, cases of bananas, gallons of milk, cases of mac-n-cheese and spaghetti, bags and bags of oatmeal, gallons of honey, tubs and tubs of tomatoes, carrots, avocados, pineapples, and hundreds of pounds of ground beef, chicken legs, peanut butter, rice and beans. Not to mention $5,000 worth of French curriculum. We are SO GRATEFUL that GOD continues to make a way for us.

 We.thank God that He has given us this opportunity to serve the children of Haiti together with Him. We are grateful that He has given us YOU - our friends and family - to minister together with us. Thank you for the many ways you have cared for our families, employees, and the little ones who God has sent our way. We thank God for YOU!

 With much love,

 Byron, Shelley & Sue, Joseph, Benjamin, Dominique and Isabelle Tlucek
