Countdown to Christmas!

It’s hard to believe that today is November 1st!  That means Christmas is just around the corner and we need your help to make sure that every child at Hope Vision Ministry receives a Christmas gift!  There are several ways to help and we thank you in advance for sharing the love of Christ with these kids during the Christmas season.

We have a Christmas wish list from Karen for each child.  Ideally, we’d like to adhere to this list to make sure that each child receives what their caretakers deem important and also to help make sure that the gifts being given are equitable for all.  We know that in the past some children received many, many items from their sponsor while others may have received nothing.  Please help us spread the love this year and make sure each child receives a treasure.

How can you help?

The simplest way to do so would be to make a financial contribution.  This will allow Pastor Andy, Ron and Karen to purchase the gift on your behalf.  It would also allow us to make sure that each child receives a gift.  We are suggesting an amount of $20 per child.  You may do this in one of two ways:

  1. Write a check to Haiti Gospel Fund and mail it to HGF, PO Box 1315, Fountain Inn, SC 29644.  Include “Christmas” on the memo line.
  2. Contribute through the website.  Go to and click on the word “Donate”.  From there, enter the amount you’d like to gift under the section titled “Christmas Fund”.

If you are a child’s sponsor and would prefer to send a gift directly from you to a single child, please contact Cindy Marlar at to find out what the wish list items are for that child.  Depending on where you live, you may be asked to mail or take your gift to a local U.S. contact person to make sure that it gets shipped to Haiti in time.  We will be reaching out to all child sponsors in the next several weeks to make arrangements for this option.

You may also contact us even if you aren’t a child sponsor to find out more about a child who does not have a sponsor and purchase a gift for him or her.  We have several children without a sponsor!

Please make arrangements  for giving by November 15th.
