“When the kids meet and are singing, I have great joy!” –Pastor Laventure
Jumecourt is located in Croix-des-Bouquets (Qua-dee bouquet), fifteen miles east of the Port Au Prince airport. This community includes a church, school, children’s homes, and a neighboring community clinic. It is located next to the Jumecourt Inn, which serves as a guest house for many of our vision-trip teams that serve in Haiti.
Leading the village since 2010, Pastor Laventure desires to see the kids’ love and knowledge of Jesus grow. His community includes children’s homes, cafeteria and a large school for both the kids living in the village and community kids. He and the principal of the school both live within the compound, providing much-needed male presence in addition to the mamas on staff. Pastor’s local church and friends are dedicated to relationships with the kids through helping the mamas with cooking, doing hair, and leading activities during school breaks. As of January 2016, 86 children are in care at SDLG East.
