Lifeline began work in Grand Goave, Haiti in 1980 and opened its first Christian church and school a year later.
That same year the first work teams were hosted and the Lovelink Child Sponsorship program was created. In 1986 Lifeline started ministry work in Honduras with a church, school and radio program ran under Dean Cary's supervision. Work teams commenced in 1988 in Honduras.
Two churches were founded in the early 1990's in Colony Gonzales and Colony Ocotillo, Honduras. The Lovelink Children's Home in Port-au-Prince, Haiti opened in 1995. A new medical clinic opened in 1996 in Grand Goave, Haiti. Medical work began in 1999 in Honduras.
During the 2000's Lifeline branched out into El Salvador and Cuba. In 2005 the first church was opened in El Salvador and in 2004 Lifeline began sponsoring house churches in Cuba. In 2002 the first Annual Peanut Butter Drive collected 5700 jars of peanut butter. In Haiti the home building ministry was started in 2003. The CaryHill dorm facilities opened in 2004 in Honduras. January 12th, 2010 a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti causing immense physical and emotional needs in Haiti that Lifeline worked rapidly to meet.
Today Lifelines has 26 Christian churches and 33 House churches spread across the four countries, three healthcare facilities, and 14 Christian schools in Haiti and Honduras, that educate 11,000 students, with over 3,500 kids sponsored through Lovelink. Over 500 people participate in work trips per year, over 200 homes have been constructed in Haiti since 2003, and over 45,000 people are impacted daily through the Nutrition programs. Lifeline is also expanding with work near Winslow, Arizona with Navajo Trails and in Canada, as well as taking the ABC food program to other countries beyond Haiti. While Lifeline has done great work to help people throughout four countries and is working to continually expand, it is only by the grace of God that these missions succeed.
