Help Haiti with the Click of a Mouse!

There are lots of ways you can help Haiti without leaving your computer! Here are just a few ways that will assist AMH with our work in Haiti.

1. Goodsearch.com - everytime you search or shop through goodsearch.com, they donate money to AMH! Just go to goodsearch.com, type "Angel Missions Haiti" in the box under "Who do you goodsearch for?" and click verify. Then search! Or shop through many popular e-retailers (like Target, Ebay, and Barnes and Noble) - a portion of your purchase will go back to AMH. We have only been using goodsearch since May, but our combined searches and purchases are already adding up!

2. Givingoflife.com - vote for AMH to win a grant of up to $50,000! This is a grant for ministries that "give life" to others. You can vote only once, but you can get four or five votes.

3. Fuelinggood.com - vote for AMH to win a $5,000 gas card from Citgo! You can vote once a day until August11th.

These funds would all be a great help to AMH to further our impact in Haiti, but we can't do it without you! Please take a couple minutes to do one or all of these things!

Hi to all, Thank you to all who came out or donated to help Chrisno get his next surgery. It will be next month in California. Darlene and Will are both happy and a little scared as any of us would be if our child had to undergo yet another major Brain Surgery. Please keep them in your prayers.

I will try to post photos of the event. We could not have done this without all of the loving caring support of so many. Dave and Patty opened their home and farm, all had a great time. Even the rain could not stop us. Thank you again. love V

Can not get the photos to upload will keep trying.

Packing Shipping Containers

Hi All,

We are once again receiving a gift of used school equipment.   After our earthquake last year less than 50% of  schools that came down in the quake have been rebuilt.  Considering on about 10% of the Haitian children even had a school to go to before the quake is unthinkable. 

We are in the process of opening a new school in the village of Jolivert.  This area has NO school and never has.   The donation of this school furniture will be shared all across Haiti.  We Thank the Plain City School District for there donation.  If anyone in Ohio wants to help us load on Monday please call or email Vanessa for directions.   We plan to pack 8 shipping containers in 8-10 hours. 

More to come about our new school.  love V

Baby Marck in need of prayer

This is the latest update from Baby Marck's host mother please keep him in prayer

I am writing with a difficult update about Marck. You may recall that in my last update I said that Marck was having some stomach issues. Within a day or two of my email to you, Marck was constantly vomiting and we took him to the ER. In the ER, he had blood work done. All of the blood work numbers came back very low. Marck was admitted to the hospital and underwent testing to rule out leukemia. He had a bone marrow biopsy and 2 blood transfusions. Additionally, blood work was taken to test for a number of odd viruses. Marck was discharged after 4 days and doing much better. There was no diagnosis at the time as many of the test results had not returned. One day later, Marck's biopsy site became infected. Again, he was admitted to the hospital. It became clear that his body was having difficulty fighting the infection due to his low blood cell count. He was again given a blood transfusion and a round of 4 different antibiotics. Marck did fight through and was discharged after 5 days. We also received the results of some of the tests. Marck tested positive for a common virus called HHV 6 (commonly called roseola). Everyone has come in contact with the virus by the time they are adults. Some individuals have a rare response to the virus and it can result in bone marrow suppression. It now seems that this may be the reason for Marck's low blood count. Marck's infection (at the biopsy site) is healed and he is improving, but we still see some signs of sickness. Marck is being closely monitored by a pediatric hematology/oncology team and is receiving excellent care. The virus should go away on its own and we should continue to see improvement. In the meantime, Marck has a PICC line to make regular blood draws and IV antibiotics easier.

Additionally, Marck will have his regularly scheduled EUA of his left eye and measurement of his right eye on next Tuesday. Unless something in his health changes between now and then, he should be fine to undergo those procedures.

Baby Jamie


I know there are those of you who have been awaiting an update on Baby Jamie.  He arrived in the US on Friday May 20.  I have had a hard time though trying to write this Blog and show his photos.  As you all know we work for God, these are his children first and he loves them and cares for them more than we could ever imagine. 

Jamie is very close to my heart as so many of the orphaned children are.   His full assessment though was worse than we had thought.  Baby Jamie will have surgery for a G-tube, this will help him to get the needed medications to keep him comfortable.   However he can not have surgery to heal his brain.  So we will do everything humanly possible to keep him pain free until God takes him home. 

Baby Jamie 7 months old only 10 pounds
Please continue to keep Baby Jamie in your prayers, along with all of the children in need of medical care all over Haiti.   We thank you for your support.  love Momma V

As all of you know we are coming up on the first anniversary of January 12, 2010 earthquake. So many died, so many were left with major medical problems. Please continue to keep all of Haiti in your prayers.

As we start out this new year AMH is working on a few new projects.
1) the Web site is being redone and the blog will be incorporated with it.
2) We now have 17 children that need sponsors for schooling. This costs $25. a month
3) We have many new children that need to come to the US but getting Haitian passports is almost impossible any more.
4) We had to cancel our first two teams for January due to the polictical problems. But have 4 mission teams set up so far for the spring and summer.
5) Tom and I are looking into working all summer in Haiti with the start of our new school in Julivert.
6) Surgery Center is still on hold pending getting steal in place for the thrid floor.

Haiti needs more schools and feeding programs for the children. We are aware of this and in prayer about what God would have us do to help the children in Port-au-Prince. Land is expensive and building takes a long time now. Please be in prayer with us.

All my love, Vanessa
