Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11

Emmanuel's Hope for the Future (Future Hope:Haiti)

Meet Emmanuel!

This young man is a light to those around him! We became aware of him as we followed the work of Future Hope in Haiti. The founders of the ministry were so impressed by his diligence. He served as their translator when they visited from the United States and had a dream of becoming a minister. Through the work of Future Hope and the profits from The Orange Bird Shop, which by God's grace were able to cover the cost of his second year of Theology School, his God given dream is coming true! 

This is a message from Katie, one of the Future Hope founders:

{Emmanuel} was so excited about school, thankful for the opportunity he has to go, and anxious to tell us about all he had learned. He also had every single receipt from the whole year (including books, exam fees, food, transportation-a Haitian after my own heart!

He teared up and told us he always thought his little brother would get to go to university but never dreamed HE would. Now he is looking forward to completing theology school and being able to pay for his brother one day. Ahhh, paying it forward..made this momma heart SO happy!

He is spending the summer in our community teaching the youth as well as leading bible studies with our people.



Something I did not realize before is that he is going to theology school, not just seminary. This means he will be able to preach and also teach whereas seminary in Haiti is to preach exclusively.

We are SO excited to have the opportunity to help Emmanuel fulfill his calling! We know he will be an amazing light in his future work with Future Hope!!
