Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and a huge THANK YOU from all of us at Alex’s House Orphanage.

It is because of our Partnering Churches and all of our Child Sponsors that we are able to do God’s work in Haiti by helping 51 children in Damien and Kalico. These children are not only receiving food, shelter and clean water, but also learning skills for life and the saving message of Jesus Christ! Our prayer and belief is that many more children will gain life-changing skills and knowledge as we continue to do God’s work in Haiti in 2012 and beyond.

We are excited about 2012, which brings the beginning of so many amazing things - starting with the construction of our orphanage and guest house in Kalico and continuing with many mission trips and the addition of new Partnering Churches. Also, through the generosity of one of our Partners - Pleasant View Baptist in Oakland, MD - we are purchasing a 66 passenger bus. This purchase will make the transport of our children and groups much safer.

Your prayers are something we covet on a daily basis.   

Amazing things are happening in Haiti – will you continue on this journey with us?

Consider Alex's House Orphanage!

While our kids complain about end of semester tests and projects, others only dream of an education.  

While we worry about gaining weight from too much holiday eating, others worry about having anything to eat at all.

While we are busy planning holiday parties and shopping for the perfect gift, others hope they have a safe place to sleep at night.

While planning your end of year giving, please consider Alex's House.
Click HERE for more information on becoming a sponsor - this is $1/day - less than the price of a cup of coffee!
Click HERE to make a one time gift (or two, or three... ).

For a limited time,  you can purchase the book Love Talk by Susan Warren (Click HERE) and $5 will be donated to Alex's House!  This is a great opportunity to purchase Christmas presents and help our children in Haiti.
