Global Missions

 
 

Stonybrook is a partner with Helping Haitian Angels which is a Christian organization caring for orphaned and abandoned children in Northern Haiti by raising them to become healthy, happy, Christian members of their communities who will have the tools to positively impact future generations.

Their story

Helping Haitian Angels™ was founded by Bill and Debbie Harvey of Haymarket, VA. In the summer of 2008 while serving on a mission trip in Cap Haitien, the Harvey’s unexpectedly met 35 homeless children living in a dilapidated building. These abandoned children were covered in scabies and sick from malnutrition and a lack of clean water. At that moment, Debbie had an immediate calling on her life to do more than just mourn their misfortune—and a new mission was born.

Debbie returned to the U.S. and shared her passionate story with friends, family, church members, and the media.  One month from that fateful day in the summer of 2008, Debbie and Bill Harvey launched a non-profit named Helping Haitian Angels and raised enough money to provide medical care, shelter, food, and clean water for the children they found in Dekle, Haiti.

Helping Haitian Angels is a growing 501(c)(3) non-profit Christian organization providing complete care for the children of the Kay AnjD’ayiti™ (Angel House of Haiti) in Dekle, Haiti.

CHRIS KEENER - MISSIONARY FOR CRU

“I serve with Cru (Campus Crusade for Christ) on campus for Ohio University in Athens and in Ljubljana, Slovenia. My task is to help explain the gospel in an area of the world that has never heard the truth about Jesus. While roughly 60% of the people there identify as Roman Catholic, 70% of that 60% have never actually read anything from the Bible. For such a beautiful country, it is a spiritual wasteland.

While in Slovenia, my team’s main task is to spread the gospel to as many students as possible at the University of Ljubljana (the largest university in the country) and a school for learning English in Maribor. The movement that we are assisting in Slovenia is called Vsak Študent (oo-SAK shtew-DENT = Every Student), and the end goal is to leave the university with a self sustaining movement that tries to reach to other campuses and make known the ultimate love and sacrifice of Jesus." 

Chris took a 6 week trip to Slovenia in Summer 2016, to follow his experiences visit http://keenerinslovenia.blogspot.com
