Why Haiti?

This is my favorite picture. Why? Because it sums up what it means to a child to be sponsored in Haiti.

Someone asked me recently, “Why Haiti?”

I’d love to be able to tell you all the reasons I believe The Torch is in Haiti – but like anything, it really doesn’t matter what I think. God has placed The Torch in Haiti for a specific reason and for a specific period of time – neither of which we are privy to the answer.

But to the 500 plus children who now receive an education free of cost; to their families who no longer have to worry over where they will find the money to send their children to school; to the souls who have been saved; to the many tummies that have been fed; to the medical needs met – the answer is simple – Jesus Christ.

John 21:17 tells the story of a conversation between Jesus and Peter. It is actually a conversation between you and me and Jesus. He asks us, “Do you love me?”

“Mike Thomas, do you love me?”

“The third time he said to him, ‘Simon son of John, do you love me?’ Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time, ‘Do you love me?’ He said, ‘Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you.’ Jesus said, ‘Feed my sheep.'”


Because we have sheep to feed. Would you consider being a sponsor to one of our children? Or could you help us with your prayers? Could you donate your time or resources to benefit the lives of the Haitian people?

If you are willing, please call me at The Torch 706-778-4063 to discuss opportunities to help or visit our website http://www.thetorch.net
