Causes that need your
The Soul Winning Missions’ (SWM) motto is “Community empowerment using education, medical, and economic development to the glory of God!” We are a 501(c)3 association and our causes are reflective of the motto: the sewing school teaches women a skill that leads to self-reliance; philanthropic educational scholarships currently extended to 12 children will ultimately lead to self-reliance and esteem; supplying Bibles and spreading the Gospel by ministering to pastors, evangelists, and all we come in contact leads to community empowerment. SWM is also involved in medical missions, feeding programs, and emergent humanitarian support when needed.
In September of 2020, SWM funded the cleaning of the streets in front of the school to make a way for the children to attend school. In addition to cleaning the street to the school, SWM also funded the cleaning and preparation of the school for the children to attend. Opening the school in Cite du Soleil has accomplished our goal for the school in 2020. SWM supports the 8 children living at the Good Samaritan Foundation providing for their physical and spiritual needs on an ongoing monthly basis. In addition, we have partnered with a Pastor in Pakistan who is spreading the Gospel and endeavoring to liberate families from slavery.
The year 2021 has been productive! SWM has continued to supply food, clothing, shelter, and scholarships for education for 11 children. The partnership with the Pastor in Pakistan has been strengthened and the Lord is moving mightily!! The ministry is expanding concentrating on Gospel Principles and Discipleship. The Pakistan fundraiser at the end of 2021 enabled another family of 7 to be freed from slavery!!
2022 has Haiti in a state of paralysis caused by civil unrest or manifestations, unemployment, schools closed, and the kidnapping of foreigners graduating to kidnapping locals. The manifestations block off streets and thoroughfares and those in the cars are accosted, asked for money, and harassed. The manifestations are organized by several main gangs who have dissected the country and rule. These gangs have taken control of Port au Prince including the port, and the gas terminal. People in authority and working people do not want to venture out for fear of kidnapping. What were they expecting to get? — This tactic speaks to the mind of the kidnappers — they are hungry and hopeless. The man who walks the kids to school, watches over the house, and drives, when needed, was kidnapped and held for two months. I mean, he had a family and worked. He is not a wealthy man. We were thankful that he was released, thinner, and psychologically abused, but alive. Those up in the country, away from Port au Prince are also reporting manifestations and schools being closed. There is no law and order in Haiti at this time.
Even before the assassination of the President of Haiti, Moise Jovenel, the political climate was challenging, and the death of Jovenel has left Haiti prey to gangs, resulting in our travel to the country has been prohibited. SWM is still supporting the children who are growing like weeds! Although school is closed, they are home and hungry 😉 They are in need of food, clothes, shoes, and medical attention (when needed).
We had been trying to bring the two youngest to the United States, but we were unable because they didn’t have strong enough ties to Haiti. Two of the children also needed medical attention and are doing much better now. Two of the older kids have been enrolled in a trade school, so they will be able to find work.
The Ministry in Pakistan continues to grow!! Teaching the Gospel, Baptisms, visiting the sick and enslaved, and feeding the poor is what the Pervaiz Ministry does, every day, day in and day out. They are dedicated to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and are diligent in exercising their faith. We are raising funds for the Areef Family who are enslaved at the brick kiln.

- Last year, we raised money for Brother Noel (on right) who was released from the brick kiln the prior year and started his own dairy business. Through your generosity, we raised funds to purchase "Midnight" the cow for Brother Noel at a cost of $350.00. WE WERE ABLE TO RAISE THE FUNDS FOR THE COW!! Now we are raising funds to purchase a couple of goats and chickens for the Manu family who was released, last year. Self-reliance is key in making those freed from slavery to be successful and productive in their new lives as free men and women. Fundraising for this cause will be ongoing and we have reset the counter because we are planning that every year we will be supporting those who are freed from the brick kiln with a head start, assisting them in developing a viable business to support themselves and their family. We ask that you consider donating a little every month and it will add up to a lot! Do consider becoming a monthly donor.$1,125.80 donated
- The Good Samaritan Foundation was started in 2011, right after the earthquake in Haiti. The Foundation had twenty-five (25) children several years after the earthquake, but there are currently seven (7) children. The staff of 5 has now been reduced to 3 who currently take care of the children. Therese, who's responsible for cooking, housekeeping, hygiene of the children, and Chilet, the driver and also responsible for operations and mechanical maintenance of the house. Dr. Gustave is always on call for their medical maintenance and emergency needs. The children are given annual dental visits. Evangelist Dr. Newton Vincent is available to the children and employees 24/7 through WhatsApp. Donations amounting to $1000.00 per month are needed to keep this foundation going.$1,700.00 donated
- “…But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these...” (Luke 18:16) SWM has been called to come to the aid of selected children in Haiti, providing educational scholarships covering their tuition and school books. Happily, we are able to provide tuition for a family with 5 children, (4 of whom are school age) for two years. In addition, we have taken on supporting the Good Samaritan Foundation for Children where 8 children reside in the home. Some are orphans while others have parents who are unable to care for them. The four(4) oldest children in the orphanage have already been attending a private school and their tuition have been paid by Soul Winning Mission. However, it is our goal moving forward to put the four (4) younger children in the same school. Therefore, all the children will be in the same school, which is within walking distance from their home. ALL SCHOOLS IN HAITI HAD BEEN CLOSED SINCE MARCH DUE TO COVID-19!!! The schools have reopened in September and SWM has resumed the responsibility of paying the tuition for 12 children. We are believing GOD that there will be people who will find it within their heart to partner with us to consistently give to this worthy course.$300.00 donated

The number of orphans and abandoned children in Haiti is staggering, please HELP!!
The reality that parents give their children up because they can no longer care for them is unfathomable. Some reports have the annual per capita income at $450.00 US and 60% of the population is unemployed.Donate Now

Blessed are the childrenPlease help feed, clothe& educate. They are growing by leaps and bounds and require care which costs. “Public” schools in Haiti are not free, so there is tuition that must be paid, along with books to be purchased, accompanied by school supplies, food, and clothes
