Conscience International Returns to Iraq to help refugees restore homes damaged by ISIS—

We had a good day completing two homes to date, but there are more than one thousand homes waiting for repairs and to have electricity restored, all because of the destruction caused by ISIS. The Iraqi people have been very appreciative of what we are doing. They graciously offer us water and food and continually thank us. The police welcome us wherever we more

Raising Roofs in Haiti—Still Much to Do in Cayette—

Can't stop time and it has run out for this trip. We have much still do here in Cayette—replacing roofs so village people in mountain regions have homes again. Many are still without safe shelter caused by the 2016 Hurricane Matthew. We are starting to make some good relationships that will help us to share more deeply with these folks who have lost more

“Pillow Case” Dresses for little girls and 21 Roofs Completed—

Today will be our last day on the mountain. I have scheduled a meeting to reinforce our vision and plan to make sure everyone is still on board. I wanted to give the people in the village of Cayette an opportunity to speak their concerns and get their input on the roof restoration project. For our next trip here, we will start using signed agreements by more

When the ox is in the ditch, you gotta’ get it out—Conscience International Restoring Roofs in Haiti.—

Today was a day of rest and reflection. I once had a neighbor who would tell me "When the ox is in the ditch you gotta’ get it out." This was that day for us. The local bosses had completed 14 roofs and they were ready to be paid. We met them in the ravine at the base of the mountain, thanked them for their hard work, encouraged them to keep the more

Replacing Roofs in Haiti—

Hit the road early as always and headed to the mountain to check on the progress of the roofs. The rain is making it difficult but the bosses are doing a great job. I am not prepared for the rain in spite of knowing the rainy season calendars wherever I travel. We climbed to the top today which is the furthest that I've hiked yet. A very long hard, more

Haiti: Putting roofs on 20 houses in Cayette—

We are back in Cayette, Haiti getting the roofs on 20 houses in this small village. Supported by Conscience International and Give Shelter Ministries we are able to continue this re-development project that is now a year old. It’s about a four or five hour drive from the airport in Port au Prince to Les Ceyes, where we found a place to stay for some more

Our Fall 2017 Newsletter—

The day began with a massive 8.1 earthquake in the Pacific offshore from Chiapas and Oaxaca, Mexico. It continued with historic hurricane Irma moving through the Caribbean, striking Cuba and heading for Florida. Millions of people were forced to flee. These dramatic events followed only days after record flooding in Houston, Texas and along the Gulf Coast of the United States. For many of these people, their lives are one disaster after another. They need help. Fortunately for those in America, there are enormous resources to assist the victims, including government aid, insurance coverage, millions of small donors and multitudes of volunteer aid workers.

Mexico Earthquake Relief: Conscience International Team Reports from the Field—

We have discovered a tremendous local work force here. This is very encouraging because this place is off the beaten path. People have been sleeping in the streets for the past five days but some are slowly venturing back inside. Many homes, however, are damaged beyond repair here in Ixtaltepec. I’m sleeping in a roofless shelter on a concrete floor. more
