Van for Ministries in Haiti
About this Mission Project
Haiti is the poorest country in the Northern hemisphere. The Haitian Baptist Convention is the strongest witness in the country of how Jesus Christ can change a nation.
There is an ongoing need to teach, train, supervise, assess the needs of and assist the poor. One of the biggest obstacles is the lack of safe, reliable transportation. The Convention would like to host more mission groups, but can’t without a van. The women of Haiti are the instruments of change, but getting to their meetings and bringing aid is held back by a lack of transportation. Getting supplies for water pumps and delivering pigs and goats to children are challenging when you have to use motorcycles, tap-taps (taxis) and bicycles.
- $50 provides a door knob key.
- $100 provides a set of tools.
- $250 buys two spare tires.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $38,000 to purchase a van for Kihomi and Nzunga to use in ministries for the Haitian Baptist Convention.
This project will be managed by American Baptist missionaries Kihomi Ngwemi and Mabudiga Nzunga in Haiti.
It is anticipated that having a van will improve the lives of individuals and communities as it helps:
- Deliver relief aid to those in need.
- Give women rides to training seminars.
- Provide safe, reliable transportation for mission teams that come to work in Haiti.
- Deliver equipment for clean water projects.
- Transport goats and pigs to churches involved in the Kids for Kids and Pigs for Kids mission projects.

Kihomi, on the left, often transports visitors and women in open trucks like this one. Passengers are not only exposed to the elements; their safety is also at risk as the truck navigates the bumpy roads. A van would provide safe transportation for larger groups.
