There are many areas in which we endeavor to assist Sister Phyllis and our Haitian brothers and sisters. It has been our joy and privilege these many years to serve! We look forward to the years ahead with great anticipation and trust in God’s continuing help.
Keeping Our Eyes On Jesus, Our Hands To The Plow!
CHRISTMAS for HAITI 2017
Providing Christmas Gifts for Children in the Church/School Facilities
We are again trusting to send 25,000 Christmas gifts this year!
“How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights.”
The Children’s Home was started for 13 children who were orphaned after their parents drowned while attempting to reach the U.S. by boat. Since that time, the home has housed and reared 100s of children. These children are being brought up in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.”
While growing them up in the Lord, they are also receiving nutritional food, health care and sound education. There is also a Children’s Home being established in the northern village of Pignon. This home has been almost fully supported by the Church in Germany.

And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Pastoral Leadership Conferences
Hosted at The Mission Center in Saintard, Haiti
God has raised up, through Sister Phyllis’ labors, over 250 churches throughout Haiti! In keeping with Scriptural instruction, “…not neglecting to meet together,” she hosts Leaders every two months at the Mission Center in Saintard.
The pastors come from all over Haiti for “a time of refreshing” and to be equipped to lead their villages. They receive instruction, bible teaching and love God and one another through precious times of worship. The testimonies of their experiences encourage each other in the battle.
When they return to their villages, they are sent with food, clothing and financial assistance for their churches. The financial assistance is very meager. Currently they receive $30USD per month to be used toward church and school needs.
Hand to the Plow has been very fortunate to capture several conferences on video. Brothers such as Dean Sherman have been willing teach and God has moved mightily. These conferences have proven to be life-changing and invaluable.
Construction – Building or painting homes/facilities

“I’m looking for a few young men who will go into the hell-holes of Haiti and pray out the darkness.” Leonard Ravenhill
In 1983, a small group went on a work camp to Haiti and had our hearts broken for the people and nation. After seeing and experiencing the burden of the people firsthand, the desire to involve others in prayer and support for Haiti quickly and intensely grew. We not only believed Brother Ravenhill’s words, but we also received and accepted his commission to go into Haiti. Out of that burden, the Work Camp ministry, Joshua Expeditions, began.
As various needs arise at The Mission Center in Saintard or other villages, we endeavor to help. In a given year, there may anywhere from 1-5 trips, depending on the need.
If, after prayerful consideration, you feel you are to go on a trip, please CONTACT Hand to the Plow to learn more about any upcoming trips. You can request a copy of the Joshua Expedition handbook in order to familiarize yourself with the practical needs and preparations for a trip.
THE GOSPEL IS BEING SPREAD ABROAD IN HAITI!
God Is Moving and Working in Haiti! Many are Hearing the Word and Responding!
Papyrus Project: Filling HAITI with the Word!
SOLAR POWERED AUDIO PLAYER | REACHES CROWDS OF 200+
At the May 2014 Haitian Pastors Conference, Brother Dean Sherman shared on Effective Personal Ministry. It was an incredible time and we have over 18 hours of anointed teaching recorded!
Along with Effective Personal Ministry, we also have the Spiritual Warfare and Relationships teachings by Brother Dean Sherman as well as the New Testament in Creole. This is well over 60 hours of instruction to load into each Papyrus!
By God’s provision, we have been able to purchase and deliver 160 Papyrus devices to date!
However, there are still approximately 75 churches under Sister Phyllis Newby’s care that do not yet have a device.
Each Papyrus sells for $80 and we need at least 75 more devices to distribute to the pastors as soon as possible.
We have such an urgency in our hearts about getting the Papyruses to the villages and filling Haiti with much needed spiritual direction.
Please consider helping individually, as a Sunday school class or Church in order to see the Gospel advance in some of the most remote villages in Haiti.
The Haitian pastors have shared with us that they are gathering people into their homes, churches and/or villages and are playing the Bible and teachings of Brother Dean.

Water, Food, Clothing and Housing are Areas in which We Focus
Cha-Cha | Water Cistern Project
Hallelujah! God has provided! The villagers have a NEW cistern!
Cha-Cha is a mountain village in Haiti. The people of Cha-Cha, under the leadership of Pastor Pierre, had been fervently praying that God would make a way to repair their damaged water cisterns. Their cisterns, installed by Hand to the Plow nearly 30 years ago, were virtually out of commission.
God has made a way and a brand new cistern has been installed!
We REJOICE with our brothers and sisters with each drink of fresh water they take from the cistern!
Fresh Water on Mt. ChaCha!
WE SEE SOMETHING GREATER THAN A CISTERN – We see the people
By helping and loving our Haitian friends, we are building lasting and encouraging relationships. It is such a joy to “come under and lift up” the people and to organically support their vision. Thanks again for your generous support and your willingness to touch the lives of the people of Mt. Cha-Cha!
