The Apparent Project is dedicated to…
- Helping Haitian parents rise out of extreme poverty in order to keep their children
- Finding families for parentless Haitian children
- Making the needs of Haiti apparent to potential helpers through media & the arts
- Inspiring adoration of our loving Father God with hope that one day He will be ApParent to all.
Our focus is on our mission… to “make the needs of Haiti known,” to offer opportunities for the Haitians be able to provide for themselves and their families, empowering them to rise up out of poverty… to be able to keep their families together… to avoid relinquishing their children to orphanages.
What we do is a reflection of these goals. Our Party Boxes & Fundraisers provide income. Our Childcare provides a way for parents of infants & toddlers to be able to work. Our AP Institute helps empower our artisans with additional skills.
We are focused on long term improvement in the lives of our Haitian friends. And, our focus is not just limited to our current artisans. We are working to make a difference for their children. With the opportunities offered, these kids can have a better starting point in life, with the education they need to advance to a new and better future, filled with hope and possibilities… not limited due to poverty.
Our Statement Of Faith
We have Christians of various denominations who work with us or help us in various ways. Our basic Christian beliefs are the same, but we may differ on specific aspects of Christian theology as viewed by different denominations or groups.
We believe… The Bible is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, God’s love letter to mankind.
We believe… There is one God who exists in three persons… God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe… God is the Creator of life. And, that God is Love, and wants all people to come to Him. His desire is for us!
We believe… Sin is what separates mankind from God. And, all have sinned. But God has made a way for us to have a relationship with Him.
We believe… Jesus Christ is God’s Son, and that by receiving Him through faith we have access to the Father. We have new life here on earth and will be with Him for eternity.
We believe… Water baptism is an outward declaration of faith in Jesus.
We believe… The Holy Spirit lives in the hearts & lives of believers and empowers them to become a reflection of Jesus, displaying His life & love & character.
We believe… God is at work to provide, to heal, to restore… to cause us to become who He has created each of us to be, and to do the good works He has prepared for each of us.
