Vision of Hope Ministries is focused on bringing hope and help to the Haitian people through a holistic ministry. We share the hope of faith in Jesus Christ through church planting and by addressing the need for education, disaster relief, micro-enterprise opportunities, orphan care, clean water distribution, and student sponsorship.
Donations are what help run the day to day expenses at Vision of hope. Donations to this fund help pay for the Lucien’s support, partial support of the Haitian churches and College Susan Schuenke, and the administrative expenses of VOHM. Anything helps and we appreciate your support.
The dramatic and lasting impact “getting involved” makes in the lives of the people of northern Haiti is a testimony to the deep love God has for His children. We are excited to be a part of what God is doing in the lives of the people of Haiti and we invite you to join with us in this endeavor!
Wisler Saint-Vil, MD
Wisler was just five-years-old when he realized his desire to help people. He saw sick family members and neighbors, and he noticed that there was no one who could care for them. He remembers asking his mother one day, “Why are you sick? Why can’t you go to the doctor?” She explained to him that it was incredibly difficult to get the money to travel and find a doctor. It was then that he decided that he wanted to find a way to help his mother and others like her; he dreamt of becoming a doctor and helping his community. Often, people laughed when he said he wanted to become a doctor, saying it would never be possible. That just made his desire to grow stronger.
When Wisler was 17, he heard about College Susan Schuenke (CSS) from a friend of Pastor Henoc, the resident missionary at CSS. Though there were other schools that offered him scholarships, he trusted that CSS was the best place for him to pursue his dream of becoming a doctor. He began attending that year. At CSS, he learned the computer and typing skills he needed in order to pass his exams and successfully move through school. He explains, “CSS opened a lot of doors for me to go forward. It would have been extremely hard to be where I am today if I didn’t go to CSS.”
After graduating from CSS, Wissler came to the States, went on to medical school with the help of Vision of Hope Ministries (VOHM), and passed his exams. Now, he is a leader in his community. He has organized a mobile clinic in Haiti, caring for 180 patients by providing care and medication. “If someone supports a student from CSS, it the best thing they can do for Haiti. They’re helping them to become great leaders. It will have a big impact on the future of Haiti.”
