Genesis 1:28 (NLT) God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it.
Genesis 2:15 (NLT) The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it.

Four Mandates:
Matthew 13:33 (NLT) “The Kingdom of Heaven is like the yeast a woman used in making bread. Even though she put only a little yeast in three measures of flour, it permeated every part of the dough.” 

1.Love who He sends

Matthew 23:37 (NLT) “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones God’s messengers! How often I have wanted to gather your children together as a hen protects her chicks beneath her wings, but you wouldn’t let me.

“We are an extension of his blood-stained wings providing mercy and welcoming whoever the Lord sends us.”

John 6:12 (NIV) When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, ‘Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.”

2. Keep the Fire burning

Leviticus 6:12 (NLT) The fire on the altar must be kept burning; it must never go out.

Matthew 21:13 (NIV) “My house will be called a house of prayer.”

3. Open Wombs

John 7:37-43(NLT) 37 On the last day, the climax of the festival, Jesus stood and shouted to the crowds, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! 38 Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.

“First comes the natural, then comes the spiritual.” 

4. So we do (Transform Haiti)

Proverbs 19:17 (NIV) Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will reward them for what they have done.

 What Partnership looks like.
Matthew 9:35–38 (NLT) 35 Jesus traveled through all the towns and villages of that area, teaching in the synagogues and announcing the Good News about the Kingdom. And he healed every kind of disease and illness. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. 37 He said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, but the workers are few. 38 So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields.”
