NEXT INternship

NEXT is Global Partners’ mentored cross-cultural immersion experience for young adults. Pass along the NEXT website to anyone in your church who is searching for meaning and their place in God’s kingdom work. Download and share the 2-minute NEXT video in your service or in your church newsletters. The best next step for anyone interested is to fill out the inquiry form, and they will be contacted for a follow-up conversation. The website is continually updated with the upcoming internship opportunities for spring, summer and fall. Applications for summer 2022 are being accepted through the end of 2021.

building hope in haiti

We have a $50,000 match – dollar for dollar from an individual toward the work in increasing the capacity of the Wesleyan  hospital on the Island of LaGonave – We are working with a group that is helping us with a 5 year strategic plan – so this is part of the first phase.   We were so pleased that the hospital and the Wesleyan Church of Haiti were the leaders in the recovery efforts of the earthquake.   Our Haitian doctors and nurses were the first people into the affected area – in less than 24 hrs. after the earthquake struck.    This is the church at work over the long haul.      It was interesting that a New York Times Reporter was there to report on the earthquake and her ultimate assessment was “The Church is the safety net for the people of Haiti.   It is here they educate their children, it is here they receive medical care, it is here they find community.  The Church is the backbone of Haiti.” I thought these were amazing words from a secular reporter – God’s church is never extinguished.

 

Below are some of the items the match would provide: 

  • Provide space and equipment for 1 maternity bed unit …..$1000 – we need 18 of these
  • Help 1 baby birth and delivery/post- natal care includes mom as well……$1500
  • Build, furnish and supply equipment  one exam room ……$2800
  • Provide 1 day’s worth of Oxygen for the Hospital ……..$50 a day
  • Help one patient access medical care at LaGonave Hospital …..$412 per patient
  • Build and Furnish and supply Equipment for an ER patient room ……$24,000
  • Build Furnish and supply for one Isolation room unit……………….$24,000
