  • ATN Update!

    As you know, things in Haiti have been crazy. We have continued to keep you fairly updated on the goings-on in the country, but we have talked less...
  • What Is Really Happening in Haiti?

    At the same time, the more desperate people get, the more desperate things that they do
  • VBS Missions

    We would love the opportunity to pour into your children's ministry in that way if that is something that you are interested in
  • An Update On Our Kids

    They are truly amazing kids.
  • Planning For The Future

    But, how do you plan for the future when the present is complete chaos? How do you plan for the future when you can only get past the day with the resources you have? How do you plan for the future when nothing is guaranteed and everything around you seems to be in disarray?
  • Resiliency

    Resiliency is one of those words that, while it is a positive descriptive word for a person, it is an adjective gained through difficult circumstances. If you have ever heard someone say, "Don't pray for patience because GOD just might give it to you" then you know what I am talking about. There are some words that we believe to be positive, but we really want them to be used to describe other people. 
  • Our Kids Took A Trip!

    The truth is that the past few years have been really difficult. They have been difficult on our kids, on our employees, on our organization, and on our family as well. With all of the uncertainty in Haiti, the danger in Haiti, the difficulty of fundraising during Covid, and not being able to be physically present as much as we would like things are hard. The kids needed this and they had a lot of fun.
  • How Did Haiti End Up In This Mess?

    My friend Lener sent me a message yesterday that simply said, "Matt the life is very difficult in haiti without Jesus, only Jesus who can protect us. Please pray for us."
  • Normalcy in Haiti

    Thank you to everyone reading this that allows our kids some "normalcy." We definitely could not do it without you. At the same time, let's continue to do everything that we can so that every kid, in every country, including our own, can complain about how their food tastes and ask someone that they love for a new toy or a new pair of shoes.
  • Haiti, Fundraiser, and General Update

    Pray specifically for our kids and employees. Being a part of an American organization could very well put a target on your back in Haiti, and we are praying that everyone connected to ATN stays safe and protected. Also pray for continued wisdom as we try to navigate this new era of social and political unrest and what may happen to the school year again if things continue to worsen.
  • ATN Year End Letter

    Many of you will receive this in your email, but just in case you do not, I wanted to post our year-end letter in blog form as well. Please note that tax summaries for 2020 will be sent out via email tomorrow and you should receive mailed forms out by the end of the week if we do not have an email address on file. Please look for and email from "Kindful Support" and open it to view your giving statement from 2020. Also, please note that if you gave through Facebook then your tax receipt was given to you by Facebook at the time of the gift, but you can contact us to get a record of that if needed. 
  • When Tragedy Strikes

    When Tragedy Strikes in Haiti...You Lose Everything...The End.

    Nobody has insurance. Most people's family and friends are as poor as they are. And the government is certainly not going to help anyone except for themselves and their own family.

    When tragedy strikes you lose everything, and make no mistake, tragedy is striking right now.
