Dominique Levy-Job Transition

Alex’s House sends it’s blessing with Dominique Levy as she transitions her ministry location from Haiti back to the U.S.  For the last 11 months, Dominique has served Alex’s House as a houseparent to our girls and as Life Skills Director. 

Our president Bill Howard says:
We are a stronger ministry because of the time Dominique gave us in Haiti.  She came at a critical time for us and helped develop policies and routines that improved our kitchen, financial accountability and life skill ministry.  Then of course, her greatest contribution was pouring love into the lives of our children, especially the girls.

Dominique will be returning to South Carolina with her children and grand children and will continue to serve Alex’s House as our Life Skills Director.  We look forward to all the Lord will do through her ministry in the future.

How can you help?
  • ·      Pray for our staff as they are in the process of seeking the Lord’s will for the person/couple who will come in and be a vital part of raising our girls.
  • ·      Pray that the Lord would prepare the heart of this individual/couple.
  • ·      Pray that the Lord would protect the hearts of the children during this transition. 
  • ·      Pray that the Lord would bless Dominique as she transitions back to the U.S.
  • ·      Pray for the desperate children of Haiti whom the Lord will add to our home this year. Pray that they would be protected and that the Lord will lead us to them in His timing.

Twas the night before Back to School

Last night at Alex’s House was like the equivalent of Christmas Eve.  Instead of stockings, we had new school uniforms laid out.

And in place of neatly wrapped presents, we had fresh backpacks and shiny new shoes.

Our morning started extra early today.  Everyone needed an extra slab of lotion, a spritz of spray and an extra comb of the hair.

By 6:45 all the children were in the dining hall eating their oatmeal.  Some were so excited for school, they could barely finish their breakfast.

At 7:05, we gathered to sing praises, thank The Lord and pray His blessings on our day.

With backpacks in place,

socks neatly folded over,

and new hairbows tightly fastened;

it’s time to load the bus!

Pray today as our children take light into darkness.  Haiti is a dark place, but Alex’s House is raising up disciples who can change this country.

Calling all Interns!

Alex’s House is now accepting applications for 2014 Interns / Associates. If you have felt the desire to serve for an extended time at Alex’s House, now is the time to take action!

Serving at Alex’s House is a wonderful privilege and can provide a life changing experience. However remember, Haiti is a very difficult place to live and minister. To serve with us is an adventure of taking the light into the darkness. There is fun, excitement, and the opportunity to serve Christ and your fellow man in new and meaningful ways. Yet, there is also plenty of hard work and very often, challenging spiritual warfare. Interns and Associates must be spiritually mature and ready for the roller coaster experience of life and ministry in Haiti.

If you’re up for a great challenge and want to learn more about serving with us - click the link below for the Intern/Associate packet!

We look forward to serving with you in Haiti!
