The mountain faith mission is an extraordinary place. It is home for widows and orphans in need. The mission is focused on every day necessities as well as long-term needs of its people. The mission has the top rated school anywhere in the area. Possibly the best School in all of Haiti.A visit to the mission will leave you so impressed with the godly leader ship of Pastor Turner and Pastor Yves. I really cannot say enough positive things about the mission and it is a delight to support this awesome ministry.

MFM captures your heart the moment you arrive. I have been blessed to be able to travel to Haiti twice. The people of Haiti are faithful, humble, and truly appreciative of everything they have. MFM spreads the word of God, while providing resources like food and education to the people of Haiti. If your heart calls you to serve, pray, or donate MFM would be the perfect recipient.

MFM of Haiti is a blessing to all! My visits to the misson are full of experiences I will never forget. I remember thinking I am going on this trip to help, share my faith, and give all I can. What actually happened was that I received so much more than I gave. The people you meet, the children you play with, and the faith you feel surrounds your heart, mind and spirit for the rest of your life. I was humbled by this group of people who love God so big and share the knowledge of him so fiercely, but have so little. We as Americans have so much, but act as if we deserve more and are not grateful. I am proud to have friends and family in Christ with MFM. They share the love and power of Jesus with open arms! This place will forever have a piece of my heart. Love and prayers to you all, Bobbie

MFM is a very special mission. They invest a lot of time and effort into developing their young people’s skills so they can be prepared to go out into the world and make a living when it’s time.
Attached are some of the crafts a couple of young people learned to make.

What can I say about this mission? Except that it has captured my heart! The people I have met while on my trips to Haiti with the mission are precious!

This mission does an amazing work for the people in the central plateau of Haiti and the region. When the hurricane hit a few years ago, MFM gave hundreds of plants to the people who were hit the hardest. The plants had been grown in the MFM greenhouses and they were more than willing to give to others to help those people in need.

With the political situation going on now, people are starving. Food is scarce to nonexistent and what food there is, is high! MFM has a bakery and they have increased production of bread in order to give it to those in most need throughout 5 or 6 communities. This is a blessing to the people who need food.

MFM is impacting the country of Haiti. Whether through physical needs or spiritual needs, MFM is making a difference in the lives of people they are in contact with. They make a difference in the lives of the children who live on the compound. Raising them and teaching them trades to be self sufficient. Teaching them godly values so they can make a difference when they grow up.

100% of the donations made to MFM go to Haiti and the mission work there. Building churches, doing Kingdom work. All offices with this organization are held in a volunteer capacity only. So you can feel good about any contribution you make...that it will be used exactly how you intended.

I have visited Mountain Faith Mission in Haiti and was very impressed by how things are run! All donations go directly to the mission…no monies go for "overhead expenses". The different programs I saw while in Haiti were filled with many Haitians who go to great lengths to be a part of whatever MFM has organized to help the people spiritually and physically and also in ways to promote careers for various Haitians.

Mountain Faith Mission has been a part of my life, through my dad, since I can remember. Several years ago I started visiting MFM regularly and I have been able to see the impact it is having in the lives of the Haitian people in the Central Plateau. MFM gives young people the opportunity to receive an education, it feeds them both physically and spiritually, and allows them to be trained in different trades that can help them in their future. Trades include sewing, baking, welding, masonry, and wood working. Training young people in different trades increases their chances of being able to provide for themselves and their family as they grow older. The people of MFM are spreading the gospel far and wide and are actively being the hands of feet of the Kingdom of God...lives are being changed by the Good News and donations to this organization help fuel the work being done in a country that, like all of us, desperately needs Jesus.

I have traveled to Mountain Faith Mission for several years now, and I am continually humbled and amazed by the work of the mission and Pastor and Mrs. Turner. God has done wonderful things through them and the willingness of everyone who partners with them. Their work involves meeting the spiritual and physical need of the Haitians who are a part of the mission and the larger community. I am involved with the schools of the mission primarily, and I can say that the blessings I have received as a part of my involvement there (with the friendships and bearing witness to God's mercy and love through the Haitians) have far outweighed any cost. Mountain Faith Missions is a wonderful non-profit to support!

I would like to introduce myself first. I am Naomi Sanders (Carroll). My father and mother went to Haiti in 1945, along with my brother and I. I was almost 12 years old and my brother, Paul Carroll (deceased) who was 10 years old, Daddy and Mama worked for a while with a new mission getting started in Haiti, then in the summer of 1947, we moved to Saute-D'eau, Haiti and begun the current Mission, which is Mountain Faith Mission.
I have been the Sec./Tres. of Mountain Faith Misson for many years. Bro. Ronnie Lee has been my Asst. Sec./Tres. for a number of years, as well. He has been so faithful and worked very hard to advance the cause of God's work in Haiti. He has been to Haiti many times. God has blessed his efforts in a special way.
Mountain Faith Mission has been 'a lighthouse on the hill' just above the town of Saute-D'eau. Mountain Faith Mission is supported by donations from God's people and their prayers are so needed and so helpful! If you have any doubts as to if your money will be used for what you want it used for, consider visiting Mountain Faith Mission. By air you go and land at Port-au-Prince, Haiti (the capital city) and from there the people from Mountain Faith Mission will meet you there and take you up into the mountains to The main Mission Station. Mountain Faith Mission also has many outstations. Our faithful missionaries, Pastor and Mrs. Richard Turner, welcome visitors and all the teams that come in to help out with the Missionary work as well as holding revival services, Vacation Bible school each year etc. You will NOT be disappointed!! It will change your life to visit Mountain Faith Mission! God Bless you!

MFM is an incredible organization. I went to Haiti a few years ago and stayed at MFM for a week long mission trip. I will forever be changed for the better from my experiences there. The wonderful people, children, and love of God they have are unparalleled. Please support MFM!

I have worked with Mountain Faith Mission since 2007 and have been on the properties and witnessed the workings of this Mission and of the leaders on the American Board and the Haitian board these folks have one of the most worthy works that I have came across. As a Pastor I had always wanted to support a mission work Spiritually and help with the needs of Children that would likely never have been helped, I would never commit because of the stories I had heard but when we made our first trip in back in 07 I was Privileged to spend a week with a group that the treasurer of the mission was a part of as well as another board member and I had never met these guys, I will tell you that their heart is for the needs of the Haitian people giving themselves to the mission and its work without expectation of any tangible returns. I have since been back 9 times after that first trip, it is no picnic but when you see the children being fed and shoes being handed out or clothing distributed and even at times clinics set up on the compound you would say I am glad to be a part of such a great organization.

I have had the privilege to visit MFM in the past. Although the country is poor, MFM is rich when it comes to the love, joy and hope that Jesus brings to all involved. MFM is impacting many Haitians by providing education and opportunities to those in need. One of the greatest blessings at MFM is to witness the children's joy through their smiles and songs. In my opinion, MFM is constantly improving the organization to help empower the Haitian's and learn how to spread the love of Jesus. --Lauren Apple

I have been involved with MFM since 1999. I have had the privilege of being involved with several mission fields and organizations. I have never seen more done with less than through MFM. I serve several positions with the mission and believe there is so much more that can be done with more physical and financial help. The Turners have dedicated their lives to serving the Haitian people and their Savior. It is an honor to serve along side this Christian couple. God is greatly using MFM to meet the needs both physically and spiritually of the Haitian people.

Over the past 15 years I have had the opportunity to visit Mountain Faith Mission is Haiti. Very few non-profit organizations do as much with the little resources they have. They take serious the resources that God has blessed them with and multiply the blessings. The leadership in the US and Haiti have directed the mission in ways that makes a difference in the lives of the Haitian people. I highly recommend Mountain Faith Mission.

Mountain Faith Missions is a organization that is dear to us even though we have never visited the site in Haiti. Our role up to this point has been friends of the mission through monetary donations and prayer. We have several dear family friends that are very involved in this organization and keep us updated on the projects and needs. Through them we have met Richard and Wilma Turner, the American missionaries that have lived and worked in Haiti for many years. Their faithfulness to God's calling is evident in their years of service to the children and families in Haiti. Churches and schools have been built, medical care has been given, and various projects have helped these people in their every day lives. Physical needs as well as spiritual needs have been met. We consider it a blessing to be able to have a part in this endeavor. Ron and Renee Wilson

I have been able to travel to Mountain Faith Mission 15 times and am able to work with the Children's Home associated with the ministry. In addition to the home, there are numerous churches, schools, a bakery, medical clinic, and agricultural program.

The donations received by Mountain Faith Mission are used in exactly the way they are intended to be. There is no overhead expense, but instead, it is volunteer run in order for 100% of the donations to go to Haiti. This organization is top-notch with a bright future and a rich history (since the 1940's).

I have visited MFM several times over the past few years. Saut d' Eau has a beautiful waterfall park. My main interest was working and helping with the schools that the mission sponsors. They are very serious about education the people there and want to improve with their educational system.

I have visited MFM in Saut d'Eau, Haiti multiple times and am amazed at how much is accomplished with so little money, (little is much when God is in it!). There are several churches in the mission, as well as schools, a children's home, medical clinic, bakery and a mill that is currently being installed. They do their best to educate people by developing their skills to support themselves in various trades.

I am a financial contributor to this non-profit and have visited with the Turners personally and have seen first hand, where the money goes, which is to feed and clothe children, as well as to educate adults (young and old) in order to better their lives. My only regret is that I am only one person and unable to give more so that many more could be reached and touched and changed by this organization.

As a mission pastor I have the opportunity to visit many places and the time I have spent with Mountain Faith Mission has been a blessing. Taking fellow believers to this location is one of the best mission trips of the year. The missionaries, the pastors, and the other Haitian believers are hard working and serious about their calling.

I visited Mountain Faith Mission a few years back as a volunteer for Vacation Bible School event at their central campus in Saut de Eau. I was amazed at the attendance of Haitian families; some who had walked several days from the mountains to attend. It was a wonderful personal experience to see the way Mountain Faith Mission is having such a positive influence on the Haitian people. They not only offer them the opportunity to become Christians but provide ongoing traditional education to children plus teaching trades and agricultural experience to the adults so they can become self sufficient. My husband and I have been supporters of this wonderful nonprofit organization for over fifteen years. I invite you to seek out their website mountainfaithmission.com to learn more about them.

Mountain Faith Mission is a small independent nonprofit operating in Haiti. The ministry of MFM is multifaceted despite it's small size. The mission has 17 churches, 6 schools, children's home, medical clinic, bakery, and an agricultural program. The mission is headquartered in Saut d Eau, Haiti within the Central Plateau.

I have been traveling to Haiti and MFM since 1999 and have found the ministry of Mountain Faith Mission to be a great help to the people within the Saut d Eau area. The American missionaries, Richard and Wilma Turner have been living in Haiti for 20 years and are well loved by the people in the community.
