WHO WE ARE
Pastor Arnold Saint Louis, his wife Flurette, and their children are at the heart of the work in Desarmes. Pastor Arnold serves as director, Flurette works with others to care for the 65 children, one son Jean Jules is principal of the school and another son Fritz Lems is one of the teachers. Jean Renaud Saint Louis is hired by S4H to help with business and communication between the directors in Haiti and the S4H board. Their foundation is called The Saint Louis Foundation for Destitute Children.
This site has gone through many changes since Pastor Arnold and S4H became partners in the work. First a dormititory for children left homeless after the earthquake was built, this also served as the school building. As funds were raised more space for classrooms was provided and dormitories were finished off. Eventurally a kitchen/cafeteria was built through financial support of Plainview Church of Christ in Plainview, MN.
Currently, an 8 room school is being built in partnership with Children's World Impact, Lake Geneva, WI.
