With the mountainous terrain in Fond-des-Blancs, there is no easy access from one community to another. A four-mile trek is a major undertaking. Therefore, instead of increasing the size of the initial congregation, the HCDF embarked on a church planting program within a 20-mile radius of the main church. Seven new churches have been planted — six of which also serve as a school in the community. Each is under the leadership of a minister who has been trained in HCDF’s Theological Program. The church in each of these communities is the center not only for discipleship, but also for education and community.
While the church and schools in Fond-des-Blancs have had some financial and developmental assistance, satellite locations have not had the same help. The satellite church sanctuaries are the same structures from which the satellite schools operate; they are all in need of basic resources.
