Chickens!

There are obvious advantages to keeping chickens. They lay about 5 eggs each per week and when they get older and no longer lay, they provide meat. We have a chicken coop at ASHOG Orphanage with only 3 chickens now so we want to buy more and also a rooster. If the chickens can provide enough eggs for the household and there is a surplus, these eggs can be given to the frail elderly at the Poor House in Anse-a-Galets. Eventually we hope to have enough chickens that some eggs may be sold at the market and bring some self-sustaining power to the orphanage. We buy the chickens when they are a few months old and already starting to lay.

If you would like to buy a chicken for $10 and provide up to 260 eggs per year please donate via PayPal. Thanks so much!

Medical Outreach Trips Haiti 2015

We will be starting medical clinics in villages on La Gonave Island in 2015. Our initial goal is to do one in spring and one in the fall. The 3 day clinics will require a 6 – 7 day trip to Haiti. The clinics will provide much-needed Family Practice care to outlying areas. We are now looking for volunteer nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, pharmacists and non-medical volunteers! Interested? Please contact Ailsa for more information:

ASHOGs campaign for building new facilities for Poor House residents

“WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO THE CASUALTY YOU ENCOUNTER ON YOUR WAY?” Luke 10:34

ASHOG is pleased to greet you in the precious name of our savior Lord Jesus Christ.

In order to rebuild the Poor House and to assist the disabled people, we invite you to take part in our week of spiritual activities – a wonderful week of open-air concerts – from September 21 to 28, 2014 from 6.30 – 9.30 pm daily at the public place in the town of Anse-a-Galets, on La Gonave Island, Haiti.

The theme of our crusade is “WHAT IS YOUR RESPONSE TO THE CASUALTY YOU ENCOUNTER ON YOUR WAY?” Luke 10:34

There is an urgent need to address the safety and well-being of these people, and so ASHOG is appealing to you for help.
By the blessings you have found from Lord Jesus please consider making a financial contribution towards the costs of our Crusades to raise funds to build a new facility for the people.

God Bless you all!

President of ASHOG

What we are doing …

Wondering what LGCCA & ASHOG are doing on La Gonave Island, Haiti? Or where your donations are going? The two little girls widowed mother could no longer take care of them, she asked that they both move into ASHOG Orphanage. Although we only had sufficient funds for one more child we could not see them separated. The second photo was taken a few weeks later, they looked so much happier and are doing really well now. Thank you for your support, we promise that 100% of donations goes to the childrens care. Please consider making a monthly donation, no matter how small. Every cent helps the kids.

Pastor Alcero, 10 Feb 1956 – 31 May 2014

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we tell you Pastor Jean Elie Alcero passed away in Anse-a-Galets, La Gonave Island, Haiti on 31st May 2014 at 2pm following a sudden illness. Pastor Alcero was a very active member of ASHOG and a wise, kind, wonderful man who will be missed terribly by his wife and family, his congregation, all of his many friends including ASHOG and LGCCA, and his community. He faced many difficulties during his life including the devastating loss of his oldest son two years ago in an accident. He battled ill health with grace and courage while giving comfort to others who were suffering. He was very highly respected and greatly loved by many people and we will miss him dearly. Most certainly taken too soon.

Rest In Peace.
Pastor Jean Elie Alcero
10 February 1956 – 31 May 2014
