Our church family is committed to caring for children in Haiti. The families of Lake Valley are currently supporting over 150 children through World Vision’s sponsorship program. If you would like to sponsor a child, contact our church office and we will get you the information needed to support a Haitian child.
In 2014, we saw the need to train the business leaders of Haiti in order to help them catch a vision of using their business as a means to bless Haiti and to leverage their influence to improve the living conditions in their impoverished country. Initially launched in the town of Jeremie, this initiative is now slated to be in eleven cities in Haiti. Because of the incredible response of these business leaders in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew, Partners Worldwide is asking us to consider taking this training globally by tapping into their network of twenty-seven churches.
Lake Valley is heavily engaged in supporting local churches throughout the world. Our flagship initiative is in Haiti where we have trained hundreds of local pastors in the First Principles of the Gospel. Our training efforts include a multiplying strategy and as a result of the networks that have been developed, over a thousand local churches have been impacted by this training.
WISDOM TRAINING FOR BUSINESS LEADERS
Piloted initially in Haiti, the Wisdom Training for Business Leaders is now being translated and used in a growing number of countries. By the end of 2018, the training will be translated into five languages (English, French, French Creole, Portuguese, and Spanish.) In 2017, an initiative was launched in The Democratic Republic of the Congo by our network partners in Quebec, Canada. In June of 2018, our network partner in Portugal will deliver our training to a network of 1,000 churches in Mozambique. As you will see below, Partners Worldwide is considering taking this training into the twenty-seven countries they serve.
Throughout the years, Lake Valley has been active in many parts of the world including Canada, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Myanmar (Burma), Peru, and Nicaragua, and others. Presently, we are praying about deepening our partnership with Partners Worldwide to be in twenty-seven strategic countries using our Wisdom Training for Business Leaders materials.

The church sent them on their way, and as they traveled through Phoenicia and Samaria, they told how the Gentiles had been converted. This news made all the believers very glad.” Acts 15:3
