Shabach Ministries International is dedicated to helping transform the nation of Haiti through education, building solid families and marriages, and teaching life skills.
This past summer SMI acquired a used school bus in Northern Michigan. Local churches and schools helped to load the bus with a variety of donations for Haiti. Now the bus is ready to be shipped to Florida and then, at the appointed time, on to Haiti. Shipping the bus to Florida as soon as possible assures that both the bus and donations stored aboard won’t suffer damage from freezing winter temperatures.
By helping to “Send the Bus” you will be providing the schools, communities, and children of Haiti a bus and much needed supplies. Monetary donations will primarily be used for shipping cost of the bus to Haiti, as well as purchasing more supplies and equipment.
There will be a $5,000 matching gift that will go towards sending the bus! Monetary donations are tax deductible.
