At Engineering Ministries International, we do a lot of master planning and design. Occasionally, a project will start construction almost right away – like the Welcome Home Children’s Centre design in Haiti from our last post. But more often, it’s a process of hurry up and wait, as eMi completes the final report, then the ministry goes through the process of fundraising, figuring out logistics, possibly hiring contractors or purchasing supplies . . . it’s a process that can take months and years.

In June 2011, Kevin took a team to Haiti to design an orphanage and compound. We’ve been seen steady progress over the years, and in July of this year . . .
The kids moved in!
Here’s what the compound looks like all done. Isn’t it beautiful?:
Thanks for coming alongside us and allowing us to bless these ministries with the gift of a good design. Together we’re allowing them to make an impact in their communities & to share God’s love in a practical way!
