Global Passion Mission 
 Demonstrating God's Love, Uplifting the Spiritual Man  
Home      Haiti 2009

Global Passion Mission began with the simple idea of bringing spiritual education and survival skills to those who were impoverished and struggling on this planet.  Nowhere is this more apparent than in the country of Haiti, where the norm is poverty, disease, malnutrition, political chaos and corruption, an anemic economy, deforestation, crime,not to mention natural disasters such as hurricanes, mudslides, and earthquakes, millions of people presently living in tent cities and the widespread practice of the occult and voodoo. 

When Pastor Rigaud first invited us to travel to the city slum of La Saline, we saw with our own eyes that people were actually eating mud cookies because food prices were too expensive for most poor people to buy.  In addition to having almost no nutritional value, the cookies also ran the risk of exposing the eater to intestinal parasites.

We decided that we could educate the people of La Saline about the nutritional benefits of eating the Moringa Olifeira plant, which is native to Haiti, and is called "Benzolive."  Global Passion Mission is dedicated to spreading the news about Moringa, and in creating sustaining communities whereby Moringa can be the difference between life and death for many of the world's starving poor. 

In May of 2009, Global Passion Mission fed over 1000 children spaghetti and hot dogs with Moringa Olifeira added as a nutritional supplement.  The children and parents were given instruction about the benefits of adding Moringa to their diets, and were much encouraged to develop Moringa as an dietary alternative to the mud cookies.

Later, in the summer of 2009, GPM returned to 
plant over one-thousand Moringa stalks in a field
near the town of Fermathe, just a few miles southwest of Port-au-Prince.  We provided 
instruction to the local people of Cite Militaire
about how to process Moringa leaves into a
nutritious powder for them to use within their food.
We also cared for orphans who had skin infections,
using the antiseptic properties from the leaves of 
the neem tree to heal these children!  Plowing and
digging up dirt in Fermathe was an arduous task, 
but the relationships we were able to form, 
working side-by-side with volunteers and local
people from the city, spanned miles of ocean, language and culture.
