Established in response to the devastating earthquake in Haiti in 2010, the Source of Light Center is a multi-faceted community ministry in the Port au Prince neighborhood of Delmas 19. Haiti Baptists want to transform this neighborhood’s faith, health, education, economics, and connection with the world. The Source of Light Center is working toward being self-sustaining, and includes a children’s home, school, and several micro-economic ventures. Of the ministries addressing this vision, Virginia Baptists are partnering with Haiti Baptists especially in the areas of child sponsorships, long-term discipleship training, and improving the school.
