About EGO

Serving the Dessalines community since 1970

In 1970, Don and Doris Peavey answered God's call to serve as missionaries. Along with their four children, they moved to Dessalines, Haiti, where they built Ebenezer Glenn Orphanage.

They chose the name Ebenezer from the Bible verse, 1 Samuel 7:12, “Then Samuel took a stone...he named it Ebenezer, saying, ‘Thus far the Lord has helped us.”

With the Lord's help, Don and Doris have enjoyed watching the children grow spiritually, academically, emotionally and physically into adulthood. They have taught many of the children to sing, play musical instruments and conduct gospel services. They have provided training and education, and some of EGO’s children are now nurses, accountants, administrators, computer operators, pastors, teachers and worship leaders. God has always provided what Don and Doris needed for ministry, just as He promised so many years ago.

In 2012 Ken & Marla Drowley moved to Haiti with their two children to continue the work that Don & Doris had faithfully started. Under their leadership EGO continues to focus on sharing the gospel of Christ through both word and deed in ways that are applicable to the needs of the Haitian people. Their primary ministry is through orphan care to the 71 children who call EGO home. These infants and children were placed in their care through Haitian Social Services because of deceased family members, parental abuse, neglect, and special medical needs. Ken & Marla serve as on-site directors and handle the day to day operations. They and their team focus on the long term needs of the kids and work to ensure that they have the education and training they need to become independent responsible adults who can contribute to their own communities when they are grown. They also serve the community by providing family support through food, formula, and tuition assistance programs, as well as medical care, elementary and high school education, vocational training, and spiritual development.

WHAT WE BELIEVE

FATHER - SON - HOLY SPIRIT

  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

  • We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

  • We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in his bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and that He will return in power and glory some day.

  • We believe that we are saved by faith alone through Jesus Christ and for the salvation of lost and sinful people. Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.

  • We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit who indwells and enables the Christian to live a godly life.

  • We believe in the spiritual unity of believers through our Lord Jesus Christ.
