Welcome to La Baie De Moustique
La Baie De Moustique is a little fishing and farming village nestled in between two mountain ranges at the base of a river delta. The 2,000 inhabitants enjoy fishing and farming as well as soccer and dancing. Every morning at any moment, you will see 10 boats out in the bay fishing for Snapper, Grouper, Tuna, and a variety of reef fish. While on the main land, you will see the multitudes of farmers walking to acres upon acres of gardens and farms, growing with tomatoes, okra, plantains, coconuts, and any tropical fruit you can think of eating.
One may ask, why does a paradise like this need a Neighbors Project partner? The truth is, underneath La Baie's beautiful exterior, the community is ravaged with physical and spiritual poverty. From alcoholism, and malnutrition to spiritual apathy and Voodoo worship, La Baie is a shell of what it can become with Christ. Hurricanes and flooding destroy crops, homes, and the local fishing industry annually. Having zero economic growth and no business in the community does not help stimulate the local community to achieve a better life. The La Baie lacks any form of healthcare with only two nurses and limited supplies. The closest hospital is an hour away by truck, and with barely any money to travel, let alone pay for health care when they arrive, very few travel to the hospital. Despite having three churches in the town, spiritual growth is at a stand still.
How can you help? It is easy; just decide that you want to partner with this community to advance Christ and His Kingdom with prayer and financial support. Together we can be a light to this community Physically, Economically, and Spiritually. We can be Christ to everyone in this village in every aspect of their lives and help them embrace a life changing connection with Jesus Christ.
