I want to thank you for visiting our site. I hope you find the work we do plays an important part in bringing hope to people in need of food. I believe God has great plans for Lenawee County and the country of Haiti. The purpose of I92 Ministries is to help provide food to people in need regardless of their situation and to share with them the hope that comes through knowing Jesus Christ. We know many people want to be involved in providing food to people and I hope you find partnering with I92 an effective means to eliminating hunger in the areas we serve.
Why Lenawee County?
The need is large. According to the most recent U.S. census information 13,462 people are considered to live under the poverty level in Lenawee County. Hundreds of children in our county quite possibly receive their only meal of the day while attending school. My family is from Lenawee County, my wife and I both grew up in Clinton and we’re raising our family here. We think the people of Lenawee County are important and it’s important to us to help provide food to people in the area we live.
My wife Melinda and I have had the opportunity to travel to Haiti through an organization called Mission of Hope-Haiti. Not until I traveled there did I take the time to learn of the desperate needs the Haitian people encounter on all levels; food, shelter, healthcare, the number of orphans left in the aftermath of the earthquake (over 600,000), an unemployment rate of 85% to name a few. But among its people and throughout its villages there is great hope. There is a light shining through this land of darkness. The villages we visit are being redeemed. Food and healthcare are becoming available, homes and schools are being built. Children are being educated to give them work skills. God is at work in Haiti and the Haitians have responded with gratitude to God. However, the work in Haiti is far from complete.
The name I92 Ministries:
Prior to my first trip to Haiti in May 2012, it became clear that my part in God’s plan was to use my 23-years of work experience in the food industry to help provide food to people in need. While on that trip and soon after my return home God opened doors in ways that made it abundantly clear that I was to leave my job and work full time advocating and helping to provide food for people. Once home while reading scripture in Matthew 5 it explains the time when Jesus begins his ministry which refers to the prophesy of Isaiah in chapter 9 verse 2.
The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2
Upon reading this my mind wandered back to Haiti where I had witnessed people living in deep darkness and accepting Jesus as their savior where a new light dawns. This new light is where their hope rests. In an attempt to bring that same hope to Lenawee County and be part of God’s work in Haiti; I92 Ministries was born.
I invite you to join us and be part of a community that is inspired to eliminate hunger.
