Our House of Hope was founded by missionaries Jim & Debbie Hambrick in 2012. They, through God’s leading and miraculous provision, built this ministry into a beautiful safe haven in the middle of one of the poorest cities in the world. DSM International was approached by Jim and Debbie in 2018 asking if we would consider leading the ministry into the future. After much prayer we felt God was leading us to continue their legacy to make Our House of Hope a place of refuge and replenishment. It also provides a wonderful base for our DSM International Haiti ministries!
God has brought a wonderful team together to serve Haitian and international teams in Haiti. In August of 2019, Michael and Reese Spencer took up residence at Our House of Hope. They were DSMI's first directors of Our House of Hope. They serve teams with joy and hospitality. Around this same time, David and Jennifer Nelson joined the DSM International team. They helped lead teams and help a teams through the process of getting to Haiti. Reese and Michael began our Venture internship program in January of 2021. Also in 2021 Hailey Pierce joined are staff to help serve teams and interns at Our House of Hope.
In September of 2021, we completed our final payment on Our House of Hope. We pray that Our House of Hope will be a base camp for DSM International in Haiti. In 2022, David and Jennifer Nelson have taken over as the directors of Our House of Hope. They are are assisted by our Haiti Liaison, Hailey Pierce, and our amazing Haitian staff at the house! Pray that we will use this wonderful resource to make a difference in the country of Haiti and in the the hearts of international teams that come to serve in Haiti.
