Imagine Living Without Bathrooms

IMG_3663Imagine if you woke up tomorrow morning and no longer had flushing toilets or clean running water to drink and wash your hands. This reality is what much of the world faces every day.

For our friends and families in Lac’jue this has been their reality… but it is soon going to change.

Because of a generous donor who saw the need for a clean water project, the families of Lac’ajue will soon have public bathrooms on the Aslan property along with access to clean drinking water each day.

This could not have come too soon. With all the activity on the property which includes church services, Grains of Grace distribution, Children’s programs, night time gatherings and the Medical Clinic, 100’s of people are being drawn to take part in what the Lord is doing on a weekly basis. We were made aware last year that while on the land many people would use the grounds around the foundation of the church to go to the bathroom. This has caused several problems including waste being tracked around the property and fruit falling to the ground in that area and then picked up and consumed.

SOFM believes in making needs known so that many can join in and be a part of what is going on both in Haiti and state side. Almost all the costs for this clean water project were met with the exception of $2,600.00.

The clean water project costs include: Digging a 100′ foot well ~ Digging a septic ~ Constructing the bathrooms which will include multiple toilets, sinks and a shower [men’s and women’s room] ~ Employing Haitians from Lac’jue to do all construcion ~ A 500 gallon cistern ~ All necessary building materials

Once completed, the bathrooms will be open every time there are gatherings on the Aslan property, church services and when the Medical Clinic is open. Clean drinking water will be distributed twice a day to families in need. There will also be a paid overseer for both the bathrooms and clean water distribution.

God is amazing and this Clean Water project will change the lives of many in Haiti!
