Merry Christmas Jan!
Just a little report to let you know the excitement continues to build here in Haiti for what Smile Of A Child is doing and it’s plans for Haiti’s future. Although, the last few weeks have been difficult due to various challenges along with the recent political struggles involving changes in Haiti’s government, we continued to press on this month to honor The Lord with Happy Birthday Jesus Celebrations for Haiti’s children.
We hosted over 200+ children at Kyona Beach this past Sunday along with the BERAKA Children’s Home, a local orphanage, ASAM Ministries, who lovingly care for special needs children and many children from the local villages and towns.
The children enjoyed a beautiful Sunday morning service just for them, complete with a reenactment by children of The Nativity. Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus along with Shepherds and the Wiseman told the story of God’s Love for them.
They also enjoyed a simple meal with sandwiches and juice. What Birthday celebration would be complete without a birthday cake? Each little child received their own beautiful cupcake to celebrate Jesus Birthday. A beautiful birthday cake was also on display to honor Jesus, thanks to Bill Shelton and his construction staff.
The ending highlight of the celebration was the toys from Jesus. They were sent special delivery through Smile Of A Child and TBN! I can’t put into words the Happiness and Joy on the faces of so many of the children. I hope the attached photos can attempt to do it justice.
I will have more totals of the amount of toys distributed as the numbers come in from other groups we were able to help with toys.
Yesterday, was another special Happy Birthday Jesus Celebration in the city of Arcahaie. The event was originally planned for Port-au-Prince with 1,000+ children.
However, due to political demonstrations and tensions in Port au Prince, our director of security and Madame Ambassador Jackson suggested the event be moved to the city of Arcahaie, North of Port-au Prince. It was another successful event with 500+ happy children. The children were treated to a special lunch a gift from a wonderful Haitian ministry called “Matana”.
(Hebrew meaning “Blessing Of God”).
Attached, are some photos of the events. The dream is unfolding before our eyes!
Thank you for what your have done and continue to do for these precious little children. You have touched and blessed so many of them. Their lives will never be the same. They all say, “Merci!!!”

Your Haiti Hospital
Your gift to Haiti through Smile of a Child
You have helped bring smiles to thousands of children around the world and especially here in Haiti. I hope the attached photos bring a smile to your face too.
These are some of the beautiful Haitian children receiving medical treatment from our doctors and nurses helping us here at the Kyona Clinic.
Last week the doctors worked very hard all day treating each child needing help. When I learned the doctors and nurses were going to have to take "TapTaps" and "Motos" (open taxi's) into Port-au-Prince after dark and in the rain I decided to drive them all back myself.
The doctors and nurses are very dedicated and excited about helping their people. They all will return again tomorrow for our next clinic.
I hope this helps lift your spirit, knowing the vision God has given you is becoming a reality.
May your night be Blessed with "Sweet Sleep"....

"5000 Bibles for Haiti"!
Your gifts to Haiti this Christmas season went in the form of GOD'S holy word "5000 Bibles"! Your Smile of a Child donated these French language bibles to "The Mercy and Sharing Foundation" who received 3000 and will give them out at their schools and orphanages in Haiti.
The other 2000 went down to your hospital, school and orphanage that your prayers and giving help build.
"GOD spoke this scripture to Haiti"
Matthew 13: 40-43 JESUS words in red letters
40Just as the darnel (weeds resembling wheat) is gathered and burned with fire, so it will be at the close of the age.
41The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all causes of offense [persons by whom others are drawn into error or sin] and all who do iniquity and act wickedly,
42And will cast them into the furnace of fire; there will be weeping and wailing and grinding of teeth.
43Then will the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with God) shine forth like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let him who has ears [to hear] be listening, and let him consider and perceive and understand by hearing.
20 Tons of relief food
Our GOD does supply All our needs…
20 tons of food was air shipped to your SOAC compound on March 31, 2004 when we learned that your feeding center had been without food for over a week. A boat shipment was not an option do to the urgency of hungry children. Your SOAC chartered an aircraft for $45,000.00 to deliver this much-needed food to the country of Haiti. Much more is needed for this, the poorest country in the western hemisphere, so please continue to pray and support your Smile of A Child doing GODs work.
Luke 11:21-22 from the Amplified Bible
Luke 11:21-22from the Amplified Bible
21When the strong man, fully armed, [ from his courtyard] guards his own dwelling, his belongings are undisturbed [his property is at peace and is secure].
22But when one stronger than he attacks him and conquers him, he robs him of his whole armor on which he had relied and divides up and distributes all his goods as plunder (spoil).
Luc 11:21-22/ Louis Segond
21 Lorsqu'un homme fort et bien armé garde sa maison, ce qu'il possède est en sûreté.
22 Mais, si un plus fort que lui survient et le dompte, il lui enlève toutes les armes dans lesquelles il se confiait, et il distribue ses dépouilles.

"A Cry From My Heart"
I have never written a letter like this before in my life…I am asking Jesus to please help me reach you with a cry from my heart.
Twenty five years ago I was privileged to visit Haiti for the first time….I met the most beautiful, kind, precious people in the world. But I had never seen such poverty…the most unusual emotions carried me thru those first few days.
Visiting the “abandoned baby” hospital…and holding a baby boy in my arms as he died…
Feeding little angels that had not eaten for days and seeing their faces glow…
Going to a local church and seeing precious people give an offering to Jesus – a rock / a button / a page from their tattered new testament…
Watching a 93 year old precious blind lady who smelled our food cooking “lift her plate to Heaven” and thank God for His daily provision to her…
The emotions were endless…but one of the sites that changed my life was as we stopped at an old gas station, I saw something moving behind the garbage area – To my shock was a tiny naked little angel baby girl…digging thru the garbage to try to find one crumb to eat.
I jumped from the car and ran toward her….as she turned and ran as fast as her little legs would go into the woods.
I literally fell on my knees in that dirt and I heard Jesus say to me…THAT COULD BE YOU JAN…hungry and naked and scared and alone…
After visiting the feeding center of Pastor Louis Neree and having my heart wrenched out as I again saw little children have to be turned away because of lack of money to buy food…
I had to talk to God…These were His creations and created with a purpose and value just like every one of us.
Why were babies dying…children naked …hungry…diseased…crying and no one hearing??
I ran to my room and fell across my bed…sobbing to God…WHY GOD…
It was as if I were transported to the Garden of Eden…
Everything beautiful…everyone happy – and I heard God say – “This is the way I planned earth – But Satan came to KILL, STEAL AND DESTROY…”
But I have given YOU – My name…My authority…My power…to DESTROY THE WORKS OF THE ENEMY….NOW …GET UP AND DO DOMETHING ABOUT IT.
Feed the hungry….Clothe the naked….Visit the sick….Take back everything SATAN HAS STOLEN AND I’ll be with you to the end of the world.
My life has never been the same. I immediately started and helped build and operate feeding centers…and now a 3 million dollar hospital and doctor’s quarters on a beautiful compound at 54 Lamentine, Carrefore, Haiti.
Now that is why I’m writing to you and why I need your heart to hear my cry…
Haiti was dedicated to SATAN AND VOODO 200 years ago. These precious people have been lied to and told….we’re too poor to worship #1…GOD…so we’ll worship #2…Satan…that is the lie they are told and believe.
So what does Satan do for you? Haiti is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere.
Haiti is 80% jobless
Haiti is 60% illiterate
Haiti has a life expectancy of about 45
Violence is rampant…two men were chopped to death on my Smile of a Child property.
But Haitians still are the most wonderful, positive, beautiful souls. They are believing things will be better.
We have a window of opportunity right now as we have never had before.
I am crying as I write and my heart screaming, PLEASE help us.
This can all change. If the right person is in power in the precious country.
An election is scheduled for November 13.
We need you and everyone you know to pray for a GOOD MAN…A GOD FEARING man, to be elected to lead this country.
The Christian Haitians are fasting and praying ever day…8 A.M. ‘til l3 P.M. …on their faces crying to God until the election.
We need you to SPEAK OUT against this evil that has overtaken this land and realize anyone who “was” in power…does not need to “return” to power….
I have personally met with two men running for president…wonderful men of God.
But evil forces are speaking out to have this election stopped…This cannot be…
The Wall Street Journal article by Mary Anastasia O’Grady, http://www.haitipolicy.org/content/3131.htm of July 22, 2005 will more than explain what is happening. A radio station in Miami is bombarding in Creole to the Haitian people for the elections to NOT BE HELD and they are propagating violence.
EVIL RULES AND REIGNS WHEN GOOD PEOPLE DO NOTHING.
Haiti needs us right now to do something….
Write and call President Bush and ask him to send troops again for the peace’ between now and the election.

What if that were you running naked in Haiti to find a crumb….What if it were you lying in an abandoned baby hospital on newspaper over dirt. What if it were you who had no job….no education….no hope….would you DO SOMETHING THEN??
I WOULD AND I AM.
I just can’t do it alone. Help me please.
To him that knoweth to do GOOD and doeth it not – To him it is sin!
Jesus loves you,
I love you,
Haiti needs us –

A New Leader for a New Haiti
February 21, 2006
His Excellency Rene Preval
President of the Republic of Haiti
3 Rue Janvier
On behalf of the Smile of a Child foundation, of which I am president, I wish to offer you our heartfelt congratulations on your election to the office of president. I truly believe that the miracle for Haiti’s glorious future has begun with your election.
I am hoping that I will have the honor of meeting you sometime in Haiti. I travel there several times a year to administrate the two million dollar hospital which the Smile of a Child foundation is building as a gift of love to the people of Haiti. The hospital is located at 15 Lamentine, Carrefour.
I have had the joy of having Prime Minister Gerard Latortue as a guest on our television network in America, Trinity Broadcasting Network. Mr. Latortue and I have become friends, and last year, at his request, I was able to send a cargo ship to Haiti loaded with tons of humanitarian aid including food, clothes, medicine, and medical personnel, as well as six fire trucks and three ambulances. I look forward to working with your administration to help provide more relief goods to Haiti in the future. In the meantime, if you should ever need my assistance with anything, please call me at 714-812-3005 (California, USA)
Your Excellency, I am convinced that Haiti will be a lighthouse to the world, and the miracle begins with you.
Dr. Jan Crouch
