World Vision Child

Get to know Christelle,
our World Vision Sponsored Child. 
JKPC has been sponsoring Christelle through World Vision since 2011 and we would like to share a little more information about her.  
Christelle lives in Covihoy, Haiti and is 14 year's old - her birthday is April 12. Christelle lives with her mother, 1 brother and 3 sisters. Christelle is in good health and loves to play with dolls.  She speaks Creole and her favorite school subject is math
Christelle's mother is a farm laborer and struggles to provide for the family. Despite their efforts, it is difficult to meet the family's needs, so they appreciate the support received from JKPC and World Vision.   Christelle is growing up in a poor area in Haiti. The HIV and AIDS crisis has severely damaged the social fabric of the entire community, leaving many children without parents. Many families live in small houses made of wood or tin. A typical diet consists of plantains, rice, mangos, and local vegetables. The terrain is green and tropical. Agriculture is the primary economic activity.
World Vision has been working in Covihoy since 1994. World Vision has helped kids stay healthy, educated and spiritually growing.  1264 households learned how to treat and store water for consumption this past year   
As part of the yearly JKPC budget, we donate $35 a month to Christelle and we gave an extra $100 in December for Christmas.   Thank you to all for your support.   Please check the jkpc website for more pictures of Christelle and her community. 
If you would like to get more involved in communicating with Christelle, please contact Nancy Polcyn.

suitcase I needed. I thank you lots.
I love you so much. I pray that God bless you and keep you healthy.






2015 Annual Progress Report on Our World-Vision Sponsored Child:
Christelle Cabrouet in Covihoy, Haiti


Christelle is  in grade four and she learned to read at a higher level this year  - we can tell that one of her favorite books is “Curious George!”  Her community was even able to build a new school last year, too!

She loves to play with her cat, which is her most precious possession.  She shared that her favorite sport is playing soccer—and she wants to know which sports the JKPC kids like to play! 

Chrsitelle shared that her family loves to joke around together and it is her mother who encourages her the most. Her health is satisfactory and World Vision is improving her health with regular medical check ups.

Christelle hopes to be a nurse in the future and she sent JKPC the following message:  
                    I love you forever.

Maybe JKPC can write Christelle a letter telling her about the sports that we enjoy and we can send her some pictures of her JKPC family?  For more info and pictures of Christelle, please view the 
bulletin board in the church lobby.

                I bought a goat & the rest used for other needs of the family.
