Good Samaritan Program

  • What is the Good Samaritan Program?

    Following Jesus’ command in the book of Luke, YOU have the opportunity to become a Good Samaritan to a Deaf child in Haiti.  (Click here to read and watch the story of the Good Samaritan).

    When you and/or your family pray for a Deaf child in Haiti, God hears and starts working miracles!  These kids need miracles. Becoming a Good Samaritan will give you an opportunity to become part of a much-needed support network.  Your prayers and financial support (only $42/month) will give a child the hope of education in sign language – which can change the trajectory of their lives!

    When you become a Good Samaritan, you are joining us to provide Bible study, academic education, and vocational training for the Deaf! You will receive a color photo of your child, specific prayer requests, and frequent updates.  Your relationship with your Deaf child will make them feel important and loved – even from afar.

  • How can I become a Good Samaritan?

    It’s easy!

    First, pray to discern if God is leading you to come alongside a specific student. Add your special student to your prayer list, and click on the Choose Me button under the picture to begin supporting your child. For only $42/month, your support will help further the education of your child. Education can be the catalyst needed to pull families and communities out of the cycle of poverty. Source: ChildFund International You are helping us eradicate poverty among the Deaf in Haiti! You will receive a color photo of your child, specific prayer requests, and frequent updates. The relationship you develop with your child will change lives – your child’s life and yours!

  • What if I can’t choose just one child? Can I still become a Good Samaritan?

    Absolutely! With this awesome group of kids, we understand it’s a hard decision to choose just one. We welcome you to become a Good Samaritan to the group!

  • Can I communicate with my child? What if I do not know sign language?

    Get ready for the BEST ANSWER EVER!

    Yes, you can communicate directly with your child – even if you do not know sign language!!

    Our missionary, Tammie, frequently visits the Deaf kids in Haiti.  She can’t wait to be the liaison between YOU and your Deaf child in Haiti.  With today’s technology, you can video chat with your child, see their environment, get to know them personally, and let them know you are praying for them!  Tammie will interpret the call for you!

  • Does my support go directly to my specific child?

    While you are building an important relationship with a specific child, your donations are pooled for maximum effectiveness. The funds will always be used for the benefit of the Deaf kids. You are joining other Good Samaritans and Haiti Deaf Outreach as we initiate long-term change for this Deaf group through Bible study, academic education, and vocational training. Education is necessary to provide that long-term change, and that is the reason our passion is educating these Deaf kids!

  • Is this a trustworthy organization?

    We are serving the Deaf in Haiti by the Grace of God and for His Glory. All of our decisions are based on the Christian ethics of integrity and honesty. We believe in being good stewards of God’s resources so we operate with accountability and transparency. Our accounting partner, Vickey Richardson, is reputable and trusted in the nonprofit sector.

The Parable of the Good Samaritan

Luke 10:25-37 (NIV)

25 On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?”

26 What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?

27 He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’[a]; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’[b]”

28 You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”

29 But he wanted to justify himself, so he asked Jesus, “And who is my neighbor?”

30 In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. 31 A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. 32 So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33 But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. 34 He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 The next day he took out two denarii[c] and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’”

36 Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?

37 The expert in the law replied, “The one who had mercy on him.”

Jesus told him, “Go and do likewise.”
