SECOND ALLIANCE EVANGELICAL CHURCH OF GOD
November 20, 2010

Missionaries from this faith base organization travels yearly to the Caribbean such as Haiti and Nassau Bahamas and hopefully to other parts of the world in the near future in other to help provide food, clothing, basic essentials to those who are desperate needs and they even paid school for children whose parents can't afford to send them to school. Due to the devastating earthquake in Haiti; the missionaries could not go because of their lack of resources and money to help that many people. We simply was not equipped to help so many. Hopefully, next year we will be able to go with your help. This faith base organization had a church in Haiti which was responsible for providing to the homeless and as well as the orphans but hopefully we can rebuild that church.

The Great!

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

I have been able to see pictures of people they have helped and the heartfelt lasting impression that they left on these people's faces. The people of Haiti, would call them and beg these missionaries to return because they were able to feed hundreds each day that they spent in Haiti. Little children would be standing in line with their little plates while bare foot and these are children no one cared for. I have learned that there's nothing more beautiful than helping someone less fortunate than you are.

Ways to make it better...

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

I prayed that they would receive some type of financial help to support the work they are doing. This organization has never receive any type of funding but still the missionaries were able to break their piggy banks just to make a difference in someone else's life. They traveled year after year to poor countries without any recognition and they did wonderful things for the less fortunate. God blesses their heart and their bank account so they can continue the good work.

Life-changing

Will you tell others about this organization?

Definitely

How did you learn about this organization?

I have been actively working with the missionaries and I see how much they care for people and it sometimes hurt me to see how they struggle to help others. Sometimes, they have yard-sales just to get enough money to travel to be with those less fortunate people from oversea.

What is this organization's top short-term priority?

They traveled on a yearly basis to less fortunate countries just to help out those who are in desperate need. They have help people who couldn't remember they last time they ate a good meal. Last year, the missionaries took shoes and t-shirts over there to Haiti and the people fought over the items and it was so heart wrenching.

What is its top priority in the long run?

The organization wants to provide to the less fortunate people from all over the world. But, since their resource is so limited they were only able to go to Haiti and the Bahamas. But so many people had to be turned away because they weren't enough clothing, food, shoes and money for each person.

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I help the missionaries with their traveling arrangements. I help them through fundraising activities but most of the expense came from their own pocket. They never received much help from anyone its something they do from their heart.
