According to the introduction that CONASPEH shares on their ministry among Haitian churches in year 2006, the people of Haiti are in an ongoing search for love, understanding, and fellowship. Cooperation and sharing is one of the biggest gifts Haiti can receive. CONASPEH is an organization recognized in Haiti that works to improve the lives of the people of Haiti. Through their many projects, CONASPEH is the hope and grounding for its over 4,000 member churches in Haiti. CONASPEH also serves as a tool that connects the government, churches, and the people.

Twelve women from the United States and Canada visited Haiti in October for five days as part of the Disciples Woman-to-Woman Worldwide trip. Representing states that included Texas, Mississippi, Indiana, and California as well as Toronto and Nova Scotia in Canada, our group included pastors and lay persons, each of whom said she felt open to God's call for us on this special trip. I was fortunate to get the opportunity to attend, partly in my role as Executive Director of Communications Ministries, for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ.) Each year, the Office of Disciples Women, part of Disciples Home Missions, along with Global Ministries coordinates a trip that puts North American Disciples women in contact with people in other countries to learn about their faith journey.Read more

The name “Andrew” was intentionally chosen for the Theological Seminary under the auspices of the National Spiritual Council of Haitian churches to emphasize its mission of uncovering and nurturing the gifts brought by pastors and students. The miracle of Andrew Seminary has been in planting seeds in the minds of a few pastors who in turn have contributed to the transformation of the lives of thousands. As minds become aware of the possibilities for a better life here on this earth through education, the despair and poverty are transformed to hope and prosperity. Andrew played no small role in the miracle of feeding the five thousand. Andrew Theological Seminary stands as a living symbol of how the five thousand can still be fed today.
