GRACE supports missionaries and ministries in countries around the world.
Susan Holowecky, Yurimaguas, Peru
Susan is one of Missionary Venture's long-term missionaries called a Field Coordinator. She is a bridge between the home base and the field. She facilitates the development of responsible indigenous Christian leadership and assists Christian leaders by enabling them to start ministries and outreaches to their own people such as Feeding Centers, Orphanages, Christian Schools and Clinics. Susan does this by hosting short-term mission teams, pioneering projects and ministries, and administrating in-country projects, programs and support. She has done ground breaking work among the Chayahita Indians and has pioneered a Maternal Care Center and a Farm Program which teaches agriculture. The farm has expanded to include a fish farm and a new cocoa growing project for the Shawi's. The cocoa project has the potential to be a solid source of badly needed income in this district, which is the 3rd poorest in all of Peru.

Bethany Evangelical Mission - Les Cayes, Haiti
Ignace & Franchette Augustin founded Bethanie Evangelical Mission in 1975 in Les Cayes Haiti. The Mission exists to show the Haitian people that God loves them very much. The ministries of the Mission are to build schools and churches, to dig wells, start feeding programs and disciple young Haitian men and women. Haitians are eager to embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ as they see their voodoo religion failing them.
Pastor Luc St. Felix, Haiti
Pastor Luc was targeted for being an infant sacrifice for voodoo rituals. He became sick after a life threatening encounter with a witch doctor, and stayed sick until his parents were told that only Jesus could heal (they had tried witchcraft). They prayed to Jesus on his behalf, and he was healed. Pastor Luc learned early on that in his country of Haiti, there is often no choice but to depend on God - nothing else exists. He firmly believes that our God is faithful to do what He has said. He has helped plant and build numerous churches and schools and has established several feeding programs. He pastors a church and also organizes seminars & conferences for Haitian pastors to be trained and encouraged.
