History of United Hearts International

The roots for the UHI go back to 1988 when we first met Pastor Liberus. He was visiting a friend of ours who lived in West Elizabeth, Pennsylvania. This friend had done a radio show on a small AM radio station out of Cannonsburg, PA. His show focused on missions to Haiti with Contemporary Christian music mixed in. That show was the "hook" that got us involved.
As soon as we met Pastor Liberus, we knew that he had a special calling on his life, so we decided to support his ministry. For a number of years we sponsored a young girl in his church, but we came to feel that more support was needed. So we began to send more money on a monthly basis. This support became a bedrock for development in his church and the network that they were creating.
During the first 16 years the support network for this ministry grew modestly. Then in 1995, Rev. Liberus visited with us and proposed that we form an international group so that we could better communicate and collaborate on projects. Immediately we knew that this would be a catylist for development in his network. That was the birth of United Hearts International.
Currently, the EECU network, has seventeen churches in the rural areas of Haiti and just recently there are churches in the Dominican Republic who have come under Pastor Liberus' leadership. This responsibility is carried by the various boards that have been set up in the church. These include Child Sponsorship, Education, Agricultural Development, Finance, Sunday School and Worship.

This is a remarkable accomplishment in a country like Haiti that is under a crushing burden of poverty and corruption in it's government.
The vision of the EECU and UHI is to see more growth and to build a spiritual foundation on which the country can rebuild. We believe that the various projects that we are working on will bring stability and progress to the people of Haiti.
