Health kits!

I want to take a little time to share about Health kits.  First of all, there are several different “kits” that are assembled at Apostolic Christian Churches across the United States.  Some of the different kits include health kits, school kits, sewing kits, first aid kits, and infant kits.   Once the kits are assembled by different churches, they are sent to HarvestCall distribution centers, to be shipped to countries such as Jamaica, Mexico, and Haiti.

At the construction department, we are thankful to receive and distribute the health kits and sewing kits.   For many, many years, the construction department has used the health and sewing kits to hand out as gifts to the local Haitian ladies that cook for our construction teams out in the villages.   The ladies are always so thankful for the gifts!  fullsizeoutput_5faThis past October, after Hurricane Matthew ravaged southern Haiti, we were so thankful to have a small stock of health kits in our depo, or storage building.  With the help of another mission organization, we were able to distribute the kits to Haitians in the villages that were the hardest hit.  Since the hurricane, we have received and distributed thousands of health kits to those in need.

Health kits include; soap, washcloth, nail clippers, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, and a hair comb.  Occasionally, we receive kits with shampoo.  img_0013.jpg

We feel it is necessary to pass on a huge “Thanks,” to those that organize, purchase supplies, assemble, pack, and ship the different kits!  We also thought you might enjoy a few pictures of some of the recipients.

Thanks again for all those that have invested time and effort into health kits!  Your efforts are not wasted!  The health kits have blessed many Haitians, and will continue to do so for many years! It’s our hope and prayer that God will continue to be glorified and that His love will be shared to those receiving health kits!   Matthew 25:40, “…I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”

  1. And THAnKS to you and the other missionaries who see that these valued kits get distributed to those who need and appreciate them. Interesting post! Blessings to all, Marv & Nancy

  2. What a great post! It was interesting to read about the different kits and how they are used. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Thank you! What a blessing it is to see exactly where the kits are going. I am so thankful we have this opportunity instead of sending money to some non-profit and then hope it helps someone. I hope that makes sense.
