Day 2 Haiti Journey of Transformation: another incredible day for our Haiti/Aus/USA team with beautiful, humble families, leaders, the Paint Gang getting Light Auditorium ready for our opening day of our Libellule Training Academy Sewing School, and most importantly... the children of Love Community Home who sent their love to all their sponsors and to our very-much-missed ambassador, Michael James Crossland! (“Where’s Michael?” the most-asked question). Such a joy... definitely pulls at the heart strings! Lives being transformed.
Love you always,

Day 1 Haiti Journey of Transformation: with full team! Can’t express the gratitude that John and I feel to spend time with these amazing, loving, caring team members from Aus, USA and Haiti. There was more that filled today than we can possibly show... we laughed and cried and visited homes and prayed and painted...and laughed more! Ben visited the mums with Belval Yndjy and Alyssa and I and our awesome driver, Nelly... these mums were told by Ben that are now being invited to start their first training at Libellule Training Academy... in our Big New premises!!! Haha! God is so good! John and Robin and Laurie painted, and painted again(😆) the new building. We saw first hand God touching lives as Mums and families, in one-room homes, with few pieces of furniture but always offering us the best to sit and share.... hear that they were invited into training that will change their lives.... due to the support of From Zion led by Ben and Jasmin (back in Aus...love you Jassy)... very humbling! A blessed day!
Be blessed and honored,
The FP Team <3

Bouvier Mountain community, a six-hour trek deep into the mountains behind Haiti’s capitol of Port au Prince, can be described as a microcosm of all the ills of Haitian rural society: rampant poverty, endemic unemployment, illiteracy, non-existent public services and schooling, and families trying to eke out an existence through simple farming amidst often unsanitary living conditions. Smoky air fills thatched residences. Many Haitians do not have access to electricity or gas stoves for cooking. Most families cook using biomass fuels such as charcoal that release harmful smoke into the air. They often cook inside their unventilated dwellings or temporary tents where this harmful smoke is trapped. According to the World Health Organisation, Haitians suffer many of the highest rates of cardiovascular diseases and cancer in the world. We are pleased to share that we have an incredible staff that has dedicated so much of their time to making this school run smoothly and effectively. We want to introduce you to them!
Hello Beautiful Souls!
We just wanted to first say "thank you" for all that you do! Also, every year for us has been a step in the right direction, and this year has been nothing short of amazing faith steps and progress! This month specifically, has already been and will continue to be a blessing, not only to our charity, but to the wonderful people in Haiti that we aim to help support. It's only right that this is the month where we start our blog so you all can keep up with what we are doing and how your contributions have helped.
Thanks again and we love you,
