  • A Breakfast Meeting

    Tuesday morning of this past week I had a meeting with Phil Atter, Bob Kleuppel, and Jim Selzer.

  • Somala is Back!

    The first thing to know about our newest little girl is that her name is actually Samara. She lived with us when we first started the orphanage and we asked the adults her name and they told us Somala and then spelled it that way as well. So for the first 2 years we knew […]

  • April Fools’ Day in Haiti

    I am sure I have written about this before, but April Fools Day in Haiti is one of the funniest days of the year!  Before I get into it, let me bring your attention to 2 things that are coming up: Our Annual Jacksonville Fundraiser is tonight at 7:00 at Christ’s Church.  Please pray for […]

  • Meanwhile…Back in Haiti

    As you probably already know, I (Matt) have been back in Haiti since Monday afternoon and it has already been a whirlwind trip. After not being here for the past 2 months, right now is the first time since arriving that I have had a chance to even sit down and think about what has […]

  • Leaving for Haiti

    I will be leaving to head back down to Haiti tomorrow after being here in the states for a little over 2 months and it is with very mixed emotions that I find myself writing this blog.  I could go into how much I am looking forward to seeing our kids or how difficult it […]

  • An Important Day for ATN

    This past Sunday was a very important day in the life of All Things New and I want to explain the reasons why this is the case.  Before I do that, I do want to thank Palm Valley Baptist Church for allowing me to come and preach for them while their Pastor was out of […]

  • 12th Anniversary

    As you can probably tell by the title of this post, Jess and I celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary yesterday. I am not going to get into the “share personal things about how much you love someone else on Facebook or other social media” kind of thing because I got to tell Jess all of […]

  • Change A Life…Yours!

    You may have noticed (or maybe not) that the title of this post is also the title of this year’s fundraiser…”Change A Life…Yours!”  I cannot overstate how important this fundraiser is in the life and ministry of All Things New and it gains in importance each year as our ministry continues to grow.  The Jacksonville […]

  • ATN Moving Forward: Mission Trips

    If you have missed our last 6 Vision Casting Blogs, please click here to catch up.

  • ATN Moving Forward: Registering in Haiti

    If you have missed any of our other 5 vision casting blogs, click here to catch up!  Today’s vision casting blog will be relatively short, but it is important for you to know our plan moving forward in this area.  As you know we have been in Haiti for a few years now, but we […]

  • ATN Moving Forward: Job Creation

    If you have missed any of our past 4 vision casting blogs, please click here to catch up. You may have seen on our Facebook account recently that February 25 marked the 4 year anniversary of the Incorporation of All Things New!  It is amazing to see how far we have come as an organization, […]

  • ATN Moving Forward: Our Employees

    If you missed the last 2 vision casting blogs, please take the time to read them by clicking here. When it comes to our employees, our vision is simple and can be summed up as follows: Make sure we can keep each of the employees we have. Hire a few more to round out our […]

  • ATN Moving Forward: Our Organization

    Click here if you missed our latest vision casting blog. Today’s vision casting blog will describe one of the most important changes we are making to All Things New in 2017 and beyond.  It is a more subtle change in many ways but in the long run could be very important for our children and […]

  • ATN Moving Forward: Our Kids

    Today we will begin our vision casting series that we have, very originally, entitled “ATN Moving Forward.”  We will focus on 6 specific aspects of our ministry and try to look forward into both the near and not-so-near future of each of these areas.  It only makes sense to start with the reason that All […]

  • Politics

    Tomorrow we will begin the All Things New vision casting series of blogs.  Our plan is to split this vision casting into 6 different blogs with each one casting the vision for a different aspect of ministry.  Because we believe this series is very important for our ministry moving forward, each vision casting blog will […]

  • Meet Elijah

    I know it has been a while since our last blog, but we have been a little busy these past few weeks.  As you may have already heard, Elijah was born Feb 3 at 9:22am, weighed 7lbs 11oz, and was 21 inches long.  I can’t even describe what it was like meeting him for the […]

  • Leaving Tomorrow

    Tomorrow is coming much more quickly than we anticipated. I know that sentence does not make a lot of sense, but stay with me for a little while and you will understand what I mean. We will be leaving from Haiti at 12:51 and arriving in Jacksonville at 6:51 tomorrow evening after having been in […]

  • They’re Just Kids

    One of the most difficult things about running a ministry that both takes care of children and relies on fundraising is that it can be easy to forget that our kids are just that…Kids. They are not a project, they are not a charity, and they are not supposed to be perfect…They are supposed to […]

  • The Christmas Party

    This is the follow-up to our most recent blog about our Christmas Party. It was an absolute blast. The party went from 2:00 to about 7:00 and it was just a great celebration. I need to apologize to anyone within a ½ mile radius of the kids’ house because it was really loud, but that […]

  • Whose Kingdom are We Building?

    This is the other blog I wanted to write prior to beginning our vision casting series. I have written about a similar topic before in a previous blog but this idea keeps coming up for different reasons and at different times. The question is: “Whose Kingdom Are We Building?” You could answer this question in […]

  • Inward or Outward?

    Over the next few days (unless of course Elijah comes) we are going to be sharing pictures, posting blogs, and trying to get some organizational work accomplished for All Things New.  The main focus of our blogs will be to cast vision for 2017 for our organization so that everyone connected with All Things New […]

  • How Americans View Haiti

    I think I have mentioned that when things get a little stressful down here, blogging helps me to work through the stress a little bit, so here comes another one.  As you may know, we are leaving next week to spend 2 months fundraising and working on the organizational side of All Things New. Getting […]

  • Rain in Haiti

    Have you ever taken the time to really sit and think about how rain changes things? I remember, when I was little, the worst possible thing that could happen in the summer was rain. If it ever rained, everything was ruined. Chances were, on any given day, we were either going to the pool, going […]

  • 10 Ways Americans are Treated in Haiti

    I am writing this blog with a very general topic but it will actually be very specific because I cannot truly speak for all Americans who live here in Haiti, only for myself.  I do, however, believe that at least a few of these will probably resonate for every American who has spent an extended […]

  • The Facebook Phenomenon

    I want to start off this blog with a little honesty. While we (Jess and I) are in Haiti, Facebook has become a lifeline to America for us. We cannot keep up with every one of our friends and it is very difficult to talk with people, so a lot of times we get on […]

  • Raising Teenagers

    Today I’m going to talk about some of the unique challenges of raising 12 teenagers together. In writing this blog, I am not going to give any pointers, I do not consider myself an expert by any stretch of the imagination, and the real truth is that I have never attempted to raise teenagers in […]

  • School Books, Faith, and the Love of a Parent

    Many of you know the kids started school last Monday. If you kept up with any of our blogs this time last year, you know that getting the kids all ready for school is no small thing (click here to read about it). There is specific fabric to be bought for each uniform, a seamstress […]

  • The Real Life of a Missionary

    I have been reflecting on our life here since we have been back in Haiti, and I wanted to share some thoughts that I’ve had about being a missionary in Haiti. To some people, moving to Haiti was brave and there is an almost romanticized view of what being a missionary is. To others, moving […]
