There are few non-profits whose mission addresses all the needs of those in an impoverished country. Hosean does exactly that by meeting the needs of the people of Haiti spiritually, educationally and economically by equipping people with life skills and job opportunities.
I have supported Hosean's child sponsorship program and worked as an advocate for the organization in my church, my city (Little Rock, AR) and across the South. It is easy to be an advocate after yo see the work first-hand in Pignon, Haiti. There's no greater mission than the one Hosean International Ministries is taking on.

I first heard of HIM through my church. After my first mission trip in 2009, I was initially overcome with emotions. However, my spirits were lifted after witnessing and being apart of the work HIM is doing. Seeing firsthand the school, church, camp and rehab clinic helped me see there are organizations and people out there doing exactly what they say will be done. I saw where funds and manpower were being used to bless others.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Because of my experience I am now a sponsor for a student at College de la Grace. I knew once I saw the kids and the school it was something I had to do.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not change anything. I just pray that God continues to strengthen Pastor Caleb and his family as well as HIM staff and volunteers so that it's work continues to grow! N.R.

I came to know of Hosean International Ministries through a friend, and I am now proud to say that I work for HIM! If ever I have seen God move and work through people is it through Caleb and Debbie Lucien. I can honestly say they are the most real people I know and have hearts of gold! They are totally in this to serve God and His people!

When I first met Caleb Lucien and the other leaders of HIM, I automatically bought in my American skepticism with me by asking myself "is this real? Are they doing good work or are they profiting from this great work?" To my surprise, they were the real deal in Haiti. Everything from school development to electricity in a rural community to taking care of orphans, they give you a holistic picture of economic development one initiated and run by nationals. In HIM is a huge camp site for students who are not able to afford the opportunity to just have fun and be children. In this camp students, men and women are afforded the opportunity to retreat from the day to day life in Haiti and enjoy a plethora of activities.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in the direct change and focus of my life. Once I served through HIM when I came back home I knew my life's purpose needed redirecting.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would send more workers to help grow the organization.
