Have you been deeply touched by the great needs you have seen in Haiti and have a strong desire to help? Maybe you know that you have been blessed by God to be a blessing to others and want to take action. But how? Becoming a World Wide Village Ambassador is a great way to use your gifts and talents and join others in making a meaningful impact in the lives of those in Haiti. WWV encourages you to take a step of faith in becoming a significant partner in helping fulfill the mission of WWV in Haiti. Would you consider walking alongside WWV as an Ambassador?
Our theme for our WWV Ambassadors is “Fè limyè – Be the Light.” Imagine each of us with our own small light in our own space coming together to be a shining city on a hill and lighting up the darkness. How powerful! Matthew 5:14-17 says, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
The only requirement of a WWV Ambassador is to have a heart for serving the people of Haiti. We would ask you to consider participating in one WWV Ambassador activity offered throughout the year. We would also encourage you to think outside the box and plan your own ways to serve the people of Haiti from home – big or small! Planning unique fundraisers or using your own personal skills is always encouraged! Please consider joining WWV in this special way and significantly impact the lives of our brothers and sisters in Haiti.

A daily prayer guide will be provided to guide you through the 4-weeks.
“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice. Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.” Psalm 105:1-3
