Love Big Dave
All over the world, people give of themselves – their time, their energy, their love, their resources – to serve others. They do this selflessly in order to share their faith and make a difference in the lives of others.
Eyes Wide Open International is a non-profit which seeks to serve widows and orphans in the midst of crisis and human suffering. In Haiti, we were building an orphanage for a special group of children when crisis hit us.
On Thursday, February 2, 2012, Eyes Wide Open International (EWOI) co-founder, David Bompart, went home to be with Jesus as a result of a gunshot received on January 25, 2012, while in Haiti serving, loving the Haitian people, and working on the orphanage that EWOI was building.
David’s wife Nicolle, co-founder and Executive director of EWOI, asks that you pray for the people, especially the children of Haiti whom he loved and served and who are heart broken over what has happened. She is continuing the work that they started and loving and serving in Haiti still to this day. The building project has been at a stand still since shortly after David died but the children they were building the home for have been fully in her care through EWOI since April of 2012.
In December of 2015, the family was incredibly blessed with a beautiful house on the beach in Haiti. There are now 33 children whose lives are in various stages of rescue but all of them are having their lives lovingly rebuilt. They have a beautiful, clean, safe home, a loving-caring Haitian staff, nutritious food, clean water, clothing and shoes for daily activities church and school, hygiene items, medical and dental care and the highest quality of education that is available to them in Haiti. We need help to provide all of that and more as well as be able to rescue more kids. To raise a child in our Haiti home, it costs $14.33 a day ($444.41 per month).
