Mission of Grace
When a mudslide took many lives in the village of Carries, Haiti – about 60 KM Northwest of Port-Au-Prince – in 2009, Linotte and Jean Joseph opened up their home and hearts with love and compassion and welcomed a hundred people to be fed bowls of spaghetti. When Linotte asked God how best she could serve this community that had no help or aid, she found the answer not far from her front door. Linotte walked across the street one day and found a young woman in labor and tried to help her, but by the time they had organized a vehicle to take the woman to a hospital an hour away, the expectant mother died. Linotte knew that this woman’s death was completely unnecessary, and could have been prevented if there was a clinic near by. At that moment she knew her mission was to serve this community. After the devastating earthquake in January 2010, Linotte and Jean started receiving missionary teams to come and help in the village: hosting medical clinics, community feedings, and food distribution, along with many other things.
