With Valentine’s Day in the center of the month, many people call February “Love Month.” Many Hands’ focus is Love in Action, and one of the many ways we do this is by helping those in our Haitian community experience the joy and the honor of becoming husband and wife in a Christian wedding ceremony. 

Worshiping together

Christi Gabhart, Many Hands Director of Ministry and Benevolence in Haiti, painted an incredible picture of this event in her blog – A Glimpse of Shalom Amidst The Chaos Of The World

Read an excerpt from her blog:

“Shalom. Much more than peace. Shalom is a condition when things are aligned the way God intended them to be. Complete. Whole. The presence of serenity, mutual agreement. A feeling of contentment, well-being, harmony.

This would very well describe the aura of the Saturday morning in December where twenty couples from various communities, attending various churches, shepherded by various pastors, were gathering together for an incredible display of intentional commitment to lead a God-honoring life.”

This year, we are asking you to be a part of these special days. You can enable a couple to say “I do” on their wedding day by providing a dress and shoes for the bride, shoes, and suits for the groom, rings for the couple, decorations for their ceremony, and food for their guests. Our goal is to raise $6,000, providing this wonderful opportunity for 40 Haitian couples to experience the Shalom that Christi describes so well.
