John’s Anniversary: 25 Years Ago!

Haiti Partners co-director John Engle moved to Haiti 25 years ago today. He was responding to a call he heard on his life, a big change from working in business in Chicago! He thought it would last two years but twenty-five years later, John continues to live in Haiti working tirelessly to help Haitians change their country.

To celebrate we have a few things in mind:
1. Did you notice the classic photos of John up top? We’re always looking for a chance to showcase John’s style over the years and this seems like a perfect opportunity!

2. We invite you to read this profile of John written by Haiti Partners co-director Kent Annan a few years back.

3. Under this section you’ll find a video from John reflecting on this milestone. Take 2 minutes and 13 seconds to watch it. It’s moving.

4. Post a comment on this post for John. Send congrats, prayers, memories, jokes, whatever is meaningful for you. John will be the first to recognize that his 25 years in Haiti are not possible without your generosity and he is grateful to share this milestone with you.

We love you John. Thanks for letting us be a part of your story and journey. Here’s to many more years ahead!

With gratitude, appreciation, and love,
Your Haiti Partners Family

    I love you, man.

    What to say in this occasion. Suffice to say, I am so glad that 25 year ago you took this journey. And you took us along with you.

    To your future, and Haiti’s!!

    It truly is remarkable what someone from a small town like ours can do in this world.

    May God continue to bless you and the people you help.
