In John 14:18 Jesus tells us He will not leave us orphans, that He will come to us. That is a comforting thought to know Jesus is coming back for us, but what about the here and now? Could it be that His answer is found in each one of us?
Project 14:18 seeks to be more than a monthly pledge, but to connect families to Haitian children in a way that is personal and life-changing for everyone involved.
We purpose to maintain the integrity of the culture of Haiti by raising up godly leaders from within.
We consist of three fundamental aspects of bridging in order to meet these goals...
*Construct the bridge through prayer
*Connect the bridge through continued support
*Cross the bridge through building a personal relationship

Statistics tell us there are anywhere from 500,000 to 1,000,000 orphans currently in Haiti. These children are either living in institutions, on the streets, or as slaves.
You now have the opportunity to accept a Haitian child into your family. Through this bridging process you will surround this child with prayer, give her a family of support, provide educational needs, physical needs, and spiritual needs, just like you would your own children.
The homes we have chosen to partner with have been thoroughly researched and we know the owners personally. They are legit and have a compassionate, loving heart for children. Your bridging will allow her to stay in her environment with the needed resources for a good life. When a child is starving, she can’t concentrate on her education. When a child has no clothes she is in danger of predators. When a child has no education she has no future in Haiti.
Through the bridging process, after much prayer on your part and completing the application process, you will choose a child to welcome into your family. This will not be a temporary job. It will be a lifelong commitment. This child will know she has the prayer support, financial support, spiritual support, and physical support she needs from a family who loves her and cares for her deeply.
Haiti is a beautiful country with wonderful people and much potential. We believe that Haiti can be changed for the better by reaching her children as early as possible. Through your bridging process you will see your child grow in to a healthy young man or woman with not only a Christian education, but skills for jobs and your mentorship planted deeply within this child.
You will have the opportunity once per year (more if desired) to travel over at an additional cost, to visit with your child. We believe that Haiti’s future lies in her children. Raising these children to be Godly men and women, healthy, and with a Christian education is the key to making Haiti the great nation it once was. We can bridge Haiti’s future with her children.
