In 2015, they were required to leave full time ministry in Haiti due to Cathy’s health. They are now with The Carpenter’s Project. This ministry helps Bible colleges in foreign countries and helps their graduates establish new churches. The Carpenter’s Project currently works in the following countries: Ethiopia, Haiti, the Ivory Coast, Myanmar, and the Philippines. Rodney travels to these countries to see how they can help the ministries there and to  hold Bible conferences.
 
 
 
 

 
The Good Shepherd Children’s Home is a Christian – based home for disadvantaged boys and girls facing difficult circumstances in their lives, many times at no fault of their own. Many of the children they serve struggle with the effects of poverty, abuse, or neglect and in most cases, just need stability and a little extra love and support to reach their full potential.
Their goal is to provide hope and healing in a Christian environment, where kids can develop academically, physically, socially, and most important, spiritually.
