Please be in prayer for ALL our Mole Missionaries!
The Castillo family has been living in Haiti for the last 10 years in St. Louis du Nord. Jody’s father – Larry Owen – started the mission back in 1979.She spent most of her life in and out of Haiti and graduated from the University of Kentucky’s School of Nursing. Her husband, Jose, serves on the mission’s board as the Communication Director. The moved to Mole St Nicholas in June 2010 to begin a new campus plant. They have 8 children – Gigi, Mikela, Rosie, Malaya, Gabriel, Levi, Asher, & Isebelle.
Beth was a swim coach for children wanting to try out for the olympics! She came to the mission back in 2009 as the Castillo’s Homeschool Teacher. She spends her mornings teaching school and her afternoons loving on the children in the community! She has become our unofficial sports minister! She has a huge heart for the suffering and finds teachable moments in everything she does!
Pierre grew up in the mission’s orphanage in Port-de-Paix. He moved to St. Louis 3 years ago to work as an interpreter. He’s another amazing young man with a heart for Christ. He not only speaks English – but He is a vital part of the ministry here. He is our orphanage & campus manager!
Jody’s parents took Benna in back when he was just a little boy – scrapping enamel out of a pot – hungry. He has become like a brother to their family. His wife died in July 2010. He has 2 children that live at the orphanage in Salines Myette. They will move here when our orphanage officially opens. He is a jack of all trades! He is extremely useful in fixing the generators, vehicles, and running errands for the teams.
TELFORT FAMILY (Momma Gigi)
Noazie Telfort came to the mission 7 years ago with her two physically-challenged twins – Gigi and Tamara. They were one of the first children accepted into the mission’s Special Needs Orphanage. One of the twins – Gigi – weighed only 7lbs at 2 years of age. The Castillo family took Gigi to the states for medical treatment and she has grown up in their home. Noazie acts as a nanny to the Castillo children and also helps manage their home. Noazie has 3 children – Wndji, Kesly, and Rose-Naika.

Malonea is a very special lady. She will tell you that her mind is not like others – but that when she gets to Heaven she will be normal! Her husband died two years ago. She accepted Christ in September 2010. She is apart of the women’s bible study group and goes twice a week to the 4am prayer services. She helps with odd and end jobs.
