Ministry Update

This summer has a been a busy time for Heart for Home leaders as the Decision Church continues to operate and grow in Port-Salut,  with events and fundraising continuing here in Canada.  Ricot has visited to speak at a number of Churches and continues to plan more outreach.  The Heart for Home golf fundraising was a huge success in July.  Patrick, the youth leader from Decision Church visited Canada to learn more about the mission, Canada’s culture and construction techniques.

Building Projects

The washroom facilities on site in Port Salut were structurally completed, but work remains to finish them, furnish them and get them operational.  This is expected to resume and be complete by the end of October, which will be a great blessing for the growing followers at Decision Church.

Host Your Own Heart For Home Fundraiser
Each year, Oak Park Church of Christ in Calgary has hosted a Chocolate Gala fundraiser and Golf Tournament and we want to help you host your own in your Church to continue to raise funds for the community and construction projects in Haiti.

Chocolate Gala

This has been an excellent event with a decadent menu of chocolate desserts, silent action, raffle prizes and fellowship. The best way to improve this event is to help other Churches host their own Chocolate Gala as fundraisers for Heart for Home.  We’d love to help you get your own running this Christmas (or anytime) and we can provide:

  • sample brochures
  • sponsorship letters
  • planning outline
  • experience from past successful events

It makes for an excellent night out and a wonderful way to build support and fundraising for Heart for Home.

Golf Tournament

The Heart for Home Golf Tournament has been another excellent event and you could easily plan your own in your city to raise awareness and funds for Heart for Home.  We have numerous people who have planned and organized these events with great success and we hope to expand them to other cities.  Again, we can provide material for:

  • sample brochures
  • recommended event plan / dinner
  • sponsorship levels and letters
  • experience from silent auction and event planning

Make Your Own Fundraiser

If you have your own idea to run a fundraiser, then by all means, any fundraisers would be welcome in supporting the mission and we’d love to hear about your plans.  If you have any questions or interest in hosting your own fundraiser, please contact Kristin Baird

Halifax Christian Church – Haitian Dinner Fundraiser

A perfect example of making your own fundraiser occurred from our friends at Halifax Christian Church where they planned and hosted their own dinner night with food, dancers and stories about the work in Haiti, where they were helping to raise funds for Heart For Home.  Thanks so much to these efforts and its so nice to see the fund raising expanding.    Here were a few pictures from their event.

Calgary Golf Tournament
July 20th 2015 was a memorable day for all who took part in the annual Heart For Home Golf Tournament. The weather was just right and everyone enjoyed themselves no matter how well or badly they swung the club. Valley Ridge Golf Club in Calgary did an outstanding job providing support for our event and we are grateful for their professionalism both on the course and in the dinning hall.

The event raised significant funds which will go directly toward helping fulfill the vision that Heart For Home has in Haiti. Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s golf tournament – sponsors, donors, golfers, dinner attendees and volunteers. Together you helped make this event a huge success! The date for the 2016 Heart for Home Golf Tournament is Monday, July 18. Please mark your calendars and plan to participate again next year!
